I’m happy to announce that the next version of BridalLive is available for you to download for free (as always)! This version introduces some powerful and exciting features that you will want to take advantage of immediately. Let’s have a look at a few highlights.
Are you struggling with a high number of “No Shows”? Say ‘hello’ to scheduled emailing. Perfect for automatically reminding your brides about their appointments, the new Smart Flow Setup in BridalLive allows you to schedule emails to be sent at a date in the future.
Internet Marketing Tools are now HTML-based
Bye, Bye Adobe Flash. The Appointment Request, Leads, Registration, Feedback, and Testimonials forms are now in HTML and iPad friendly. While we were re-doing this, Lindsey threw together a great new design for the Testimonials form. No changes are required on your end. All of the Website Plugins will be automatically converted to the newfangled ones.
Support for larger stores
It’s true, we had some growing pains as BridalLive became more and more popular. With nearly 200 bridal stores using BridalLive now, we started to hear about some bugs in the system that could only be produced by stores with heavy usage of the software. With help from a friend that works at MailChimp.com (thanks Eric!), we were able to design and implement an new component that will allow BridalLive to support stores with high volume and a large number of computers. This new component is freely available now. Contact BridalLive Support for assistance with setup and installation if your store is a high volume store.
More articles added to the Support Center
In an effort to make it easier to obtain support and learn how to use BridalLive to it’s fullest, we launched the Support Center back in November. It is available at http://support.bridallive.com or inside BridalLive under Administration > Support Center. When you need some help, just open the Support Center and search for a topic that you are interested in. Need to learn about printing labels? Want to learn how to access BridalLive from home? The support center has what you need and it is constantly being updated. If you have a suggestion for an article, simply post a question on the new Support Center and I’ll add it to the growing list of articles.
If you are already running BridalLive, updating is simple and takes less than 1 minute per computer. On each computer running BridalLive, follow these 3 steps:
- Open the Administration Module
- Click “Program Settings”
- Click “Check For Updates” and click “Yes”.
Important Note: When performing your updates please remember to update your “Master” computer first followed by each of your “Workstation” computers.
Helping you thrive,
