Development in October

In October we really got into the R6 system upgrade but this is a big job and we have a long way to go. We continued work on the web POS which will provide a phone/tablet POS option. We started integrating the new gift card system into the POS and did more work on the group/association portal sites. 

Currently working on

  • Circle Gift Card
  • Rails 6 upgrade
  • Group/Association central site
  • Improved onboarding system for new customers
