Qontext Releases First Follow-Record Capability For NetSuite

Qontext Releases New Version of Its NetSuite Integration, Adding Support for Users to Follow Activity Around NetSuite Records of any Record Type

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2011) - Qontext Inc., a leading business social collaboration platform and Gartner's 2011 "Cool Vendor" pick, today announced a new version of its social software for NetSuite. This new release adds the ability, for the first time in NetSuite, to follow any changes to selected NetSuite records. Changes or activity around user-selected records automatically show in their Qontext activity feed. For example, a user can get notified when the probability of a sales opportunity changes or if the status of an order is updated.

"Qontext for NetSuite" already social-enables NetSuite by providing social collaboration capabilities tightly integrated within NetSuite. With Qontext, NetSuite users can collaborate with colleagues, partners, vendors, or customers using NetSuite or via Qontext's stand-alone social portal.

"We're excited about this new release. NetSuite users have been asking us for this functionality since we announced our NetSuite integration in the SuiteWorld keynote in June," said Samir Ghosh, VP Business Development & Strategy of Qontext. "Qontext for NetSuite provides greater functionality than Salesforce Chatter, plus Qontext integrates with NetSuite, Salesforce, and other applications, including legacy apps so users are not locked into any particular application. Not only does this integration provide convenience for the user, but it provides easier recall of discussions as they're pinned to relevant business records and processes. It also eliminates the 'social feed overflow' problem that many suggest might be solved using 'feed filtering.'"

Qontext includes a comprehensive suite of social collaboration tools such as Threaded Discussions, File and true Document Management with versioning and Microsoft Office® integration, Shared Bookmarks, Blogging, Rich Text Wikis, Photo Sharing and Video Streaming, Polls, Quizzes, and Surveys.
