Retailer 3.3.X Update Notes

New Integrations 


  1. Decommissioning of Legacy AI Models: In line with OpenAI's recent announcement regarding the phased shutdown of several AI models, we have proactively taken steps to ensure a seamless transition for our users. The affected models have been decommissioned from our system to pave the way for more advanced and capable alternatives. See HERE
    Introduction of New AI Models: We are thrilled to introduce the addition of two groundbreaking AI models to our system:
    • GPT-3.5-turbo-instruct: An enhanced version designed to understand and execute instructions more efficiently, providing you with faster and more accurate responses.
    • GPT-4: The latest iteration in the GPT series, offering unparalleled AI capabilities with improved understanding, creativity, and contextual awareness.

New Features

  1. Quote & Invoice Management Stock Reservation Enhancement
      • New Facility: We are excited to introduce a new capability within our Quote & Invoice Management system that allows users to reserve items from their inventory. This ensures that your stock levels are accurately reflected, preventing overselling.
      • Proforma Invoice Status: A new interim status, "Proforma Invoice," has been added to our Quotes & Invoice management. This status acts as an accepted quote that has not yet been processed as an invoice but has already reduced the available stock quantity by moving it to a new "Reserved Quantity." This significant update allows you to issue proforma invoices to customers without making the reserved stock visible on your website or in-store.
      • We have enhanced the Quote & Invoice Management system to support the acceptance of deposits and progression payments for Proforma Invoices. This feature facilitates flexible payment options for your customers and streamlined financial management for your business.

    • Deprecated Feature Special Customer Orders
      1. We have enhanced the Quote & Invoice Management system to support the acceptance of deposits and progression payments for Proforma Invoices. This feature facilitates flexible payment options for your customers and streamlined financial management for your business.
    • Repairs Module - Ordering Parts Enhancement
      • New Feature: The ability to order parts directly from the Repairs Module has been introduced. This feature links part orders to the corresponding repair case, ensuring that parts are accurately tracked from order to delivery, and reducing the risk of misplacement.
      • New Substatus - Awaiting Parts: For better management and visibility, a new substatus, "Awaiting Parts," has been added to the Repairs Module. This helps workshop technicians easily identify which repairs are pending part arrivals. 
    • Recurring invoices
      • This new feature enables the creation of recurring invoices that can be automatically charged on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis. Designed to support businesses that provide regular services, such as; storage fees, subscription software billing or long term equipment rental, to customers, this feature ensures timely and consistent billing.
