We are proud to announce the release of new minor versions of our IT System & Service Management solutions NetEye and EriZone.
- Go to the official Release Notes of NetEye 3.10 (IT System Management solution)
- Go to the official Release Notes of EriZone 5.1 (IT Service Management solution)
Besides important improvements, NetEye 3.10 comes up with new features in the areas of Network Analysis, Business Service Management and SAP Monitoring. Although, having added some new functionalities, in this release we particularly focused on increasing stability and improving existing modules.
In past, information regarding new versions have been published as PDF here on our blog. From now on, we will maintain a NetEye Release Notes archive on our company webpage. (For the next release, such an archive will be created also for EriZone. However, release announcements will always be made on our blog.)
- New Agent Ticket Creation Form: the ticket creation form has been improved in order to support the agent in a faster and more productive ticket creation
- HTML printing support preview: The PDF printing functionality has been improved with the last version of EriZone 5. It is now possible to print all images and html included in the ticket to a PDF file. In this way, the generated / printed PDF becomes a true copy of the original ticket that can be used in different offline scenarios. For instance, sometimes it’s useful to have a hard (printed) copy of the ticket, for example to hand in a report to meeting participants.
- Service translation support on agent and customer interface: it is now possible to translate the service catalogue based on user localization settings
- OTRS calendar add-on integration: the newest OTRS 5s calendar add-on has been integrated.
- Service catalogue by customerIDs: it is now possible to associate services from service catalogues to customerIDs (previously it was possible to associate services only to customerID).
- Translation: complete availability of English, Italian and German translations
- Email notification layout: new email notification layout
Under the Hood
- Upgrade to OTRS 5.0.18
- Major bug fixes on EriZone themes
- New module AgentTicketPhoneSplit: during split functions, it is now possible to customize the form of the split with ACL and dedicated JQuery to provide a more tailored escalation form.
- New ActivityDialogLink: It is now possible to ‘call’ an existing EriZone module (i.e. AgentTicketPriority) through process management buttons
Try it now!
All new features and enhancements are available also on our EriZone Online Demo.
