Inaport release schedule
InaPlex has two major Inaport releases each year; however we are also constantly improving functionality and performance.
Inaport releases are generally made up of three types of changes:
- New features
- Enhancements to existing features
- Bug fixes
Inaport also keeps pace with new releases for the CRM systems it supports; Inaport is always compatible with the latest CRM release.
At any one time the current release of Inaport will reflect a wide range of enhancements that may not yet have been announced. Formal releases pull together of all the improvements in a given period of time, but Inaport users can download the most functionally rich version of the software at any time.
InaPlex has a modular approach to building and maintaining its software, making it straightforward to update components and ensure compatibility between versions. The latter is especially important for ensuring that clients don’t have to re-write their Inaport Profiles when they upgrade to the next version of Inaport.
What drives Inaport development?
Most Inaport changes are driven by users and Partners, and are often developed to meet an immediate need. For instance, when Partners in Italy needed to load millions of records quickly for a proof-of-concept, they requested performance enhancements. As a result, we developed Execute Multiple and Multi-threading functionality (details below) functions in Inaport to meet their need.
This functionality was developed within the time required, the business was won, and the new functionality was incorporated into Inaport, but not announced until the next major release. This is very typical of the way that we support and work with our partners, and maintain constant Inaport evolution.
