Logan, UT, United States, 2011/06/02 - This long awaited release spells a major upgrade for WizCite, WizFolio’s citation generator, which will operate within Microsoft Word as an add-in, greatly facilitating the citation process due to its enhanced compatibility with Microsoft Word.
WizFolio, the provider of a fully web-based research management software, has released a major upgrade to its existing citation generator, WizCite, with a number of new enhancements and improvements designed to increase ease of use and performance.
The new version features a custom pane as a Microsoft Word add-in. Data is now accessed over the internet through the interface of the plug-in instead of relying on Internet Explorer. This enhances the stability of WizCite and promises a simpler and more efficient citation process.
Convenience is a major theme in this upgrade, with users being able to cite in multiple ways, most notably by dragging and dropping the relevant citations into the document itself. In addition, the WizCite panel can be docked at either side of the window, at the bottom, or as a free floating panel. This introduces a layer of flexibility into the product which users will find useful, particularly when inserting, deleting and/or modifying citations.
“Our aim is to produce an intuitive piece of software which will allow users to cite easily, quickly and accurately,” said Casey Chan, CEO of WizFolio. “We remain committed to providing useful, simple and elegant features. Citing should not be such an arduous task.”
WizFolio (wizfolio.com) is developed by a privately held Singapore company founded by two serial entrepreneurs. Founders Wade Fallin and Casey Chan are also partners in VentureMD, a technology business accelerator.
Dr. Casey Chan was a co-founder and CEO of an eLearning company called WizLearn. He is also an adjunct professor at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Division of Bioengineering at the National University of Singapore.
WizFolio's technology reflects the deep experience of the two founders. The design philosophy of the application focuses on simplicity, usability and structural elegance.
