VISCO 4.0 Improvements – July 2013

Several improvements are available with VISCO 4.0; primarily in a feature we call the “Customize Display” options. The details of new configuration options included with these changes are listed below. When a customer is upgraded from their previous version of VISCO to version 4.0, they are given the option of upgrading to the “Old Standard,” which allows them to maintain exactly the same tab and field layout as the one they had in their previous version, or the “New Standard,” which is a streamlined version of VISCO which eliminates fields and consolidates tabs in a way that has proven much more user-friendly to all our test/beta customers running 4.0.  Once a standard is chosen, we suggest a 1-2 hour training/config session with primary VISCO users to review their needs, configuration notes and make interface changes ‘on the fly.’

To view a full description of the features available in VISCO 4.0, please watch our 2013 User Conference videos at (please subscribe to VISCOsoftware on YouTube as well):
