PORTAL FOR PODIO RELEASED BY WAU SOLUTIONS

Podio Users Now Have the Ability to Connect Directly with Non-Podio Users

OSLO, OCT. 14, 2016
WAU Solutions AS, a technology company specializing in business automation, today announced the release of WAU Portal for Podio; a seamless conduit for Podio users to communicate and collaborate with clients, vendors, employees, and other non-Podio connections.

Podio is a dynamic web-based business platform named a 2016 PCMag Editors’ Choice for Online Collaboration Software. All aspects of a company can be organized with user defined workflows, data, content management, team collaboration, and real-time communication; a CRM, CMS and ERP all in one. Podio users have an online app store, can build their own apps or work with Podio Authorized Partners for custom solutions.

“As much as we are self-proclaimed Podio addicts that run our family of companies almost exclusively within Podio, there were three main issues we wanted to resolve; inefficient communication outside of our Podio intranet, needing to create workspaces or share items with persons not using Podio, and the desire to maintain our brand at all times,” explains Anders Alm, CEO of WAU Solutions. “We developed the Portal to bridge the gap between Podio and our external relations.”

The #1 feature desired by Podio Authorized Partners surveyed was a portal for the platform. This positive feedback from industry leaders led to the development of WAU Portal as a service for all Podio users.

Portal for Podio features include:

  • Branding
    Maintain company and organization branding at all times, complete with logos and colors
  • Dynamic Adaptability
    The Portal installs on all Podio applications

    Changes within Podio apps are instantly updated within the Portal

  • Security and Permissions
    Management of access levels per field and permissions set abilities to view and edit data
  • 2-Way Chat

  • Unlimited Usage
    No limits on the amount of user logins
  • Webforms
    Podio user-friendly webforms allow users to create new items in any Podio app
  • Attachments
    Upload and download file attachments
  • Securely Share Items
    Username and password protection to items in your Portal connected app

“As a company we are in the business of automating workflows,” Alm said. “The Portal was created as a tool for our own productivity first, which led to development of the WAU Portal as a service for others seeking the same solution.”
