What has AxioWorks been up to?
We are thrilled to announce a significant development that marks the beginning of a promising year. AxioWorks has formed a strategic partnership with Lightning Tools, a renowned provider of advanced SharePoint web parts. This collaboration is a giant stride towards expanding our product offerings.
We are excited to introduce two innovative products from Lightning Tools:
- Lightning Forms: Transform your SharePoint List Forms into dynamic business tools with ease. Its user-friendly interface allows for seamless customisation, making complex form creation a breeze.
- Data Viewer: This tool is a game-changer for displaying external data within SharePoint. It offers versatile options to present data as tables or engaging charts. It’s an excellent alternative to the soon-to-be-decommissioned Business Connectivity Services (BCS), ensuring you stay ahead in managing and presenting your data efficiently.
In our commitment to continuous improvement, the next update of SQList, our flagship SharePoint to SQL Server synchronisation tool, is underway. We are diligently incorporating new features based on valuable feedback from our users. Your insights are instrumental in our journey to enhance SQList, ensuring it remains a tool that truly resonates with your needs.
Finally, at AxioWorks, we’re deeply immersed in exploring the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) for enhancing SharePoint. Our team is diligently working on developing an innovative tool that promises to revolutionise the way you interact with your SharePoint data. We’re excited about the journey ahead and look forward to sharing our progress with you.
As the year progresses, we hope it continues to be a prosperous and successful one for you. Your ongoing support and trust in AxioWorks are, as always, greatly appreciated.
