CartonCloud's Ideas Portal!

One of the biggest challenges when developing software is how best you can receive, manage and communicate updates for all the ideas people share on how to make the solution better. Here at CartonCloud, we are no different.

To ensure we do the best possible job of addressing this challenge we are releasing a new “Ideas Portal”. It is a space where suggestions on how we can improve CartonCloud can be shared, voted on and enhanced through community comments. This input and feedback will assist us in identifying the improvements of our application that users need the most, and will promote the prioritisation of new functionality based on the volume of customer support.
