System Updates

After the Christmas development freeze the team have been hard at work with many improvements and some new features. Notably, a separate “Customer Ref” field in invoices and two-factor authentication; have a look at the video here.

We’ve made improvements to speed, xero and Vii gift cards; the web checkout now supports the selling of Vii digital Gift Cards – see the test video here.
