Datatune provides Extranet integration options in Version 7.3.5 for integration with customer websites

Seattle, WA (February 19, 2006) - The developers of the Datatune Extranet announce a series of tools which will allow Extranet customers to integrate their website and the Extranet with minimal effort.

Many small businesses can barely afford to develop a credibility-building website, much less a site that integrates with back-office automation functions. Subscribers of the Datatune Extranet now have the ability to introduce work-order/trouble-ticket request functions and a customer login capability to their existing website by using simple HTML form fields. This integration allows small businesses to display a level of accessibility and technical sophistication to their customers which builds credibility and illustrates a commitment to seamless company-customer communications.

Because the integration is performed using basic HTML form fields, it can be implemented by novice web developers who may lack experience with more complex scripting languages like ASP, PHP, Java and Cold Fusion or programmatic API's. This allows small businesses with virtually no budget for web-development to enjoy a more sophisticated web-presence without the traditional investment of time and money.

Like many Extranet feature releases, the success of these features become the foundation for future releases and other website integration tools, such as mailing list subscription requests, request for information forms and other common website request tools will be introduced with future Extranet releases.

Version 7.3.5 also introduced the capacity for customizable group management which allows Extranet administrators to define an unlimited number of category names for which to assign customers. Customers may now be grouped by geography, demographics, product-interest and any other logical method that may fit a unique businesses needs. Customers can belong to as few or as many groups as desired with no limit on the number or method of categorization. Customizable group management helps simplifies customer organization, reporting and customer email communications through the integrated bulk email management functions.

Because the Datatune Extranet is a hosted application, all upgrades are automatically deployed to existing customers and are available at no extra charge to Extranet subscribers.
