Replicon recently held first ever San Francisco Bay Area User Group and launched a major new release of our cloud-based platform

San Francisco Bay Area User Group AND launched a major new release of our cloud-based platform

Replicon kicked off its first Bay Area User Group on September 10, 2013 at the chic “W” Hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Attendees were warmly welcomed with a buffet lunch, and Keri Brooke, vice president of product marketing at Replicon, got things started by making introductions as everyone settled in.

Customers then engaged in a round robin discussion where they shared information with one another on how they currently use Replicon solutions, what their upcoming use plans are, and what they hope to see in future product and feature developments. Next, Keri announced the launch of a major new release of Replicon’s cloud-based platform, and invited Praveen Krishnan, senior director of product management of Replicon, to walk attendees through an overview presentation of the platform’s fresh innovations.

Praveen noted that the new release is an evolution in modern time tracking, with an improved user interface based around who the user is and their role in the organization. This latest technology offers improved resource management and reporting capabilities, built-in compliance, and dramatically increased visibility into business performance. The new release also includes mobile applications for iPhone and android devices, so that time tracking entries can be made on-the-go. Throughout his presentation, Praveen and the attendees engaged in a free-flowing Q&A, both with an eye toward informing the attendees about all the latest and greatest capabilities, and an ear toward listening to users’ wish lists for new bells and whistles.

The co-CEO and co-founder of Replicon, Raj Narayanaswamy, then took the floor. After presenting a quick history of the company, Raj shared his excitement about the road ahead. “Companies need true visibility into how time is used across the organization,” he said. “We built the new release of Replicon with this in mind. Our aim is to take the pain out of time and attendance. Using Replicon, time can finally be managed as an enterprise asset.”

Keri gave some closing remarks on the usability and robustness of the new release, including its built-in analytics, process automation, and enhanced integration capabilities. The bottom line, she noted, is that: “Replicon is in the cloud, which breaks down time-tracking data silos, and gives workers the ability to enter time on any device, at any time. We’ve removed the burdens of legacy timesheet tracking. Customers have an optimized and modernized process, they can remain compliant, and they can open doors to increased profits.”

The user group culminated with all Replicon execs on deck to take and answer questions from customers and analysts, and the cherry on top was a lively cocktail reception featuring Replicon blue-colored margaritas to toast the success of the first ever Bay Area User Group AND the new Replicon platform release.
