I’m sure you’d agree that 2016 has been quite a year to remember, so from all of us here at StoreFeeder, we’d like to wish our valued customers a very Merry Christmas.
We thought this would be a good opportunity to look back over all the changes and improvements we have made to our service over this last year, and to look at some of the exciting plans for the future development and continued improvement of StoreFeeder that we have in store for 2017.
A very popular improvement has been the introduction Criteria Weighting to our shipping rules. In this new feature, you are able to choose the criteria that matter the most to you. Should two shipping rules apply to the same order, StoreFeeder will automatically assign the rule that matches the criteria you deem to be the most important.
We have offered our customers greater functionality options with our Rest API. Using this powerful tool, the more computer savvy among you can send queries and receive responses about any aspect of your data. Search through your past orders to find all the ones from last September when you were away on holiday? No problem. Search to see how many of a product you have in a particular warehouse? Done.
We know just how vital it is to keep your customers happy, and what better way than to make sure your products get to the right place at the right time? Throughout the year, we have integrated StoreFeeder with a host of new couriers. We have been very pleased this year to welcome Amazon Logistics, DPD, Interlink, Huxloe and Parcelstation to our growing list of couriers.
Recognising how dreary it can be to manually alter your product prices to keep track of those of your competitors, we introduced our new and improved Amazon Repricer tool at the start of the year for our Banquet and Enterprise customers to help you keep that competitive edge. With this tool, Amazon informs us of changes to the same products in different stores, and the repricer runs throughout the day, automatically repricing your orders based on the options you set.
One of the new features we are most proud of, is our Phase 1 of Multi-stock Location. This feature is currently only available for a select testing group of Enterprise customers, and has been met with highly positive feedback. The feature takes into account all of the locations you may keep the same products, and uses this information to inform your picking and packing lists. StoreFeeder won’t look only in one place for your products, but will take into account the amount you have in store, and the rest sitting in your warehouse.
Enterprise customers can expect this new feature to become part of their package when we unveil Phase 2 in the days to follow.
The sphere of online retail grows by the day, and here at StoreFeeder, we don’t want our customers to miss any opportunities. We are proud to announce the following future channel integrations that will be coming in 2017:
- Magento 2.0
In additional to new channels, we will be bringing new courier integrations with integrated printable labels for each courier.
Lastly, StoreFeeder is getting a rebranding! Expect a newly designed website for the New Year.
Once again, we’d like to express our gratitude to all of our customers. We wish you all a relaxing Christmas, and may you have a very happy and lucrative New Year.
The StoreFeeder Team
