We’re excited to share a significant product update roundup for January, including WMS and TMS updates, general usability enhancements, and a selection of new features completed during our CartonCloud 'Ideas Smashathon"! Check out the list below, and head to our Knowledge Base Release Log for more details.
Bringing in the New Year with new features
Over the end-of-year period, our development team took on a range of product updates and enhancements from our ideas portal and road map in what we affectionately called The CartonCloud Ideas Smashathon.
While the end-of-year is a busy time for our customers, it is a quieter time for our new features development teams — as we don’t want to be making too many changes to the system while our customers are experiencing high demand.
The Ideas Smashathon was planned to take advantage of the holiday period, allowing the teams to work on a range of smaller features and improvements that could be completed and released within a few weeks.
Our development team selected 30 features and enhancements from our road map which could be completed within a few weeks and set to work on a ‘Smashathon’.
Some of this month's product update highlights include:
- Improved allocation tools and visibility for consignments
- More visibility and workflow options for sale orders
- Enhanced administrator tools and tracking
- Additional fields and filters are available in sales order and purchase order reports
- And much more!
