Turbine responds to the needs of small and medium-size companies with a sleeker, more responsive version of its bureaucracy-busting online application.
The new version of the web-based application makes it even easier for growing businesses to manage purchase orders, expense claims, time-off requests, HR records and staff feedback and performance reviews.
Turbine lets companies manage their staff more efficiently, save time, take control of spending and give employees convenient online self-service for routine paperwork chores. No more paper forms or misfiled requests!
Driven by customer feedback, Version 8 improves the look and feel of the site as well as its usability. New features include:
A responsive interface. Turbine resizes automatically to fit the screen you are using, whether you are requesting time off on your smartphone, or submitting a purchase request on your laptop.
Beautiful design. Subtle animations, elegant graphics and other grace notes make the new version look great. For example, it automatically takes advantage of the Retina display on the latest iPads and iPhones.
Split-screen displays. The new list view mimics email clients and other popular web-based applications by letting you see a list of requests on the left in chronological order and the details of a selected request on the right.
Faster, better. Version 8 adds powerful technology behind the scenes, such as client-side caching which makes the site snappier to use, as well as improved localisation settings and the ability to comment on requests.
The new version will make it easier and faster for employees and managers to take care of their admin so they can spend more time on their job and less time on necessary but unproductive tasks.
"It's an all-in-one, Swiss Army Knife to cut through red tape at a fraction of the price of bespoke or big-company systems," says Matthew Stibbe. Prices start at just $8 a month for up to five users and there's a 30-day free trial.
"We love the paperwork you hate," says Matthew Stibbe, "and Turbine Version 8 is a big step towards the paper-free, hassle-free office."
