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.
Mobile Phone Texting
You can now send and schedule text messages from BridalLive to your contact's mobile phones. Just in time for prom season, this feature opens up a new marketing channel to a demographic that is increasingly mobile. This feature is free for Internet Marketing Tools subscribers and also requires a Twilio.com account. You can watch a how-to video to learn more about this feature.
New Support Center
In an effort to make it even easier to obtain support and learn more about BridalLive, we are launching a new Support Center which is available at http://support.bridallive.com. The support center has also been embedded right inside of BridalLive under Administration > Support Center. When you need some help, just open the Support Center and search the vast knowledge base of topics (coming soon!). Over the next few weeks, we will be filling out the Knowledge Base with articles on various BridalLive topics. 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.
There are 3 new reports that will help with buying inventory and customer pickups (Sales Summary by Size, Sales Summary by Color, and Pickup Report).
BridalLive now allows you to discontinue inventory items. You will now be warned when adding a discontinued item to a Sale or Sales Order. This feature is evolving as I receive feedback from you. If you have any suggestions on how you'd like this feature to work going forward, please reply to this email and let me know!
Credit Card Processing Compliance
Mastercard recently announced support for partial approvals and BridalLive now supports this as well. If you still don't have a merchant account that is linked with BridalLive, please reply to this email for a free cost analysis.
And over 25 more new enhancements and bug fixes…
