Published 7/17/2019 — If you're job is to manage dozens or hundreds of field personnel for merchandising you've probably been accustomed to messaging people via text, via email and realized that keeping things organized can be a real pain.  We know this and we're proud to announce that we've implemented field team messaging that leverages the systems Manage User Groups capability to provide a way to message groups of people easily - through text message (SMS) or through the mobile app directly.   The elegance of this is that you can organize and reach folks on their mobile device via multiple methods.  The mobile app allows for images to be sent as well. All correspondence is saved so you have a central record of it later as well.

If you're using SMS text messaging then user text message fees do apply, but if your users are all mobile application users they can get your messages inside the app while avoiding the telecom charges!

Published 7/5/2019 – We're pleased to roll out our monthly insight panel update with an entirely new insight panel.  The Item Group Comparisons panel is an easy to use panel, especially if you're comfortable with the Custom Regions Overview insight panel.  This panel is simple and is designed to allow you to quickly and easily compare sales performance among a number of different custom item groups.  The beauty of custom item groups is that you can make any number of them and include only the items you care about and are not hampered by any categorization hierarchy you might otherwise use.  While the options are nearly limitless, we expect common use cases for this will typically include grouping items into custom groups based on price points to view how price tiers are performing in the marketplace.
