Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while St Nicholas went crazy so many lists in his head. But in folders they were organized so versions he could compare, all thanks to his trusty software, Workshare!
You’d probably be hard pushed to find someone with a job more difficult than Santa Claus; being inundated with endless lists (made worse by people changing their minds about what they want for Christmas), not to mention having to share the lists with his elves, and only having a single night to get all his deliveries done. We decided to provide Santa with a complimentary download of our newest software, Workshare 9, and since implementation, Mr. Claus can’t thank us enough!
Workshare’s client extranet feature means Santa can organize his lists into folders and share them with all his elves. This means he can work through his lists methodically, sorting boys from girls, naughty from nice, and kids from big kids. Usually, he’d have to send out each list to the elves individually via email; a process which throws massive snowballs his way in the form of a bursting inbox and annoying attachment limits. Instead, uploading them securely to Workshare and sending his elves a link to the folders has not only down-sized Santa’s email inbox, but saved him loads of time, which he can now spend with Mrs. Claus.
What’s more, Santa can be sure he has the right version of a list by comparing all drafts he’s sent from each child in the same view, easily identifying the changes in a red-line copy. Once all the lists have been finalized, he can use Workshare’s closing binders feature to sign the present off digitally, so the elves can get to work making and wrapping it for you. With Workshare 9, the gifting operation is made immensely more efficient. The only thing we can’t help Santa with is the delivery operation; we’ll leave that to Rudolf and his friends!
Never again stress over versions did he, ole’ St Nick traveled off to place gifts under tree. And we heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"
