By making DivTRAK 3.0 wholly Web-based, the solution provider said it has made the application more flexible and easier to use.
"We are able to deliver the same value inherent in managing, measuring and marketing diversity spending with DivTRAK, but we are able to improve the user's experience with added speed, flexibility, accessibility and usability," said John Lau, president of Applied Information Services.
The Web-based version of DivTRAK will have provide for greater accessibility for diversity management departments, buyers and suppliers, since the application does not require users to install software on their desktop computers, according to the solution provider. Instead, the Web pages reside on a separate server, which all users can access.
The new version also allows users' views to be customized. Fields may be added or hidden from view, and the interface can be altered to incorporate the client's logo and corporate color palate.
