Connected Inventory 7 (Cin7), an end-to-end supply chain management solution for small and medium-sized companies, is keen on having a fulfilling experience for its users.
In the recent past, they’ve committed to fixing hitches while maintaining a steady flow of updates of their cloud-based ERP.
To begin with, here are the recent headline fixes done by the techies.
Payments representation: The incorrect representation of payments on certain documents has now been fixed to reflect the correct information at any given time.
Display issue: Movement of stocks was initially not well depicted due to a display issue in the adjustment module. This has now been fixed to portray a clear view of your stock movement.
Alteration of contact and product codes: If an order is created via EDI, henceforth, it will no longer be possible to change contacts or product codes within the order.
POS workflow issues: Initially, if a customer was inserted into a transaction after having selected the products, the prices would change. This has since been fixed.
Better invoice rationale: It is now possible to view invoices that have and have not been paid.
Sporadic price tier issue: The occasional hitch that had initially been occurring in a sales order which resulted into the price rows in a sales order not matching with that of the customer when orders are created in the CRM has also been fixed.
Downtime during products export: The time-out snag that occurs when transferring a section of products with corresponding SKUs has been fixed. This will ensure product export procedures are fastened.
History logs copying: When back-ordering, the Sales Order will now be hindered from copying historical data.
Report loading issue: Users can now load reports that contain custom fields. Before, it was not possible to run such a report.
Field order type: The ‘Field Order Type’ has been incorporated into all sales reports.
Sales with no stock: Individuals who have a longer list (longer than allowed) of completed sales without stock will now be able to view them all.
Sales order surcharge bug: They’ve mended a hitch that occasionally altered the sales order surcharge upon saving.
Production job loader issue: Cin7 team have also corrected a snag prompted by transactions starting with ‘#’ in the Production Job Loader.
UoM error: A UoM error appearing when UoMs are not being operated on has also been fixed.
Updated company logo in emails: This updated company logo issue has also been fixed to now appear correctly in emails.
Search All button: This button now functions as expected with only one click.
Rounding issue: The rounding concern in sales orders in the surcharge section has also been adequately adjusted.
Stock export crashing bug: The techies also dealt with the bug that causes the crashing of stock export if the name of a branch and the price column happened to be the same.
With all these fixes, the experience is certainly expected to be much better, leading to better resource planning for all the users of Cin7.
Cin7 also recently released the following updates.
Integration App Updates
The push to have Cin7 compete with other major brands has been taken to the next level—If the recent updates are anything to go by. They include:
Shopify address mapping: Shopify owners can now map addresses to be able to keep the shipping and billing addresses area up to date in the CRM contract and in the order.
Multiple payments download: It is now possible to download a couple of payments from your Shopify store into your Cin7.
eBay reference orders: Before the update, order references for all eBay orders were indicated using the Order ID—it has since been changed to Sales Record Number.
Tax for AU local orders: It is now possible for eBay and Amazon sellers to record a 10% tax on all AU orders transacted locally.
Order cancellation: Line items cancelled for an order placed in The Iconic will be invalidated in Cin7.
In addition to the integration updates, users were also treated to a few additional updates. Take a look below.
Back Button renamed: To boost its functionality, the Back Button has now been renamed to ‘Save and Back’.
New page titles: You will now have new page titles added to all your pages—this will provide a better access to the settings, and documentation and videos pages.
A new POS setting: This update provides for the specification of which Product Codes with Alternative Units of measure can be rounded up. The feature can be found under the General Settings section.
Channel updates for specified orders: Henceforth, in case an order was created elsewhere, the POS will not be updating the channel.
Read-only Balance Owing section: The CRM ‘Balance Owing’ area has now been programmed to grant you a read-only access with the update option being accessible from the accounting integration only.
Default setting of delivery method: For those users that keep changing the Delivery Method more frequently, you might consider setting a default of either “To be Delivered Later” or “Pickup Later”. The options are available in the General Settings area.
Payment Terms: The area “Payment Terms” has now been conveniently included in the Sales Order.
Changing the stock control technique: It will no longer be possible to change the stock control technique—for instance from Batch to FIFO or the reverse via a spreadsheet if the products have existing stock.
The cloud software firm also went ahead to promise their users with Shopify store a further update regarding import product images functionality in the coming days.
