New Improvements to DEAR
Validation of Email Addresses and Phone Numbers Provided during Account Registration
To help clients and partners during the onboarding process, DEAR now validates client contact information, e.g. email addresses and phone numbers, provided during the registration process. Users who enter mobile numbers will either be sent SMS messages or get voice calls, while those who enter landline numbers will get voice calls. Clients and partners that sign up for free trial accounts as well as to any paid subscription plan undergo the same validation process. For more information, click here.
New CSV format for Import/Export of Supplier and Customer Contacts
Supplier and customer contacts can now be imported into DEAR and exported from DEAR via CSV. This will help facilitate the management of supplier and customer contact information. Accounts that have this information available somewhere in a third-party system will find this particularly helpful. For more information, click here.
Tyro/Vantiv (TriPOS) Payment Setup Configuration at Outlet Level
Payment system setup was available previously only from the POS level on the DEAR POS integration page. This setup can now be overridden at the outlet level. This means that different outlets can now use different Tyro or Vantiv TriPOS accounts for payment processing. For more information, click here.
Packing Multiple Boxes with Automatic Scanning
When packing multiple boxes using automatic scanning, the box number to which a scanned item will be added can now be manually entered. This improvement facilitates the Pick, Pack, and Ship Process. For more information, click here.
Surcharges on Custom Payment Methods
Surcharges can now be added to credit notes and custom payment methods. Multiple surcharges can also be set for sales payments in the DEAR POS outlet. If a payment method does not have a surcharge set up, the sale transaction in the DEAR POS outlet will not reflect a surcharge. For more information, click here.
Adjustment of Tax Rules During Checkout
Tax amounts greater than 0 as well as tax rules can now be adjusted during the checkout process in DEAR POS. To allow editing of the tax amount or rule prior to computing the total sale price, the tax amount on the DEAR POS Checkout page is now hyperlinked. When clicked, it opens the Tax Adjustment window, where the tax amount or rule can be viewed and/or edited, as necessary. For more information, click here.
Saving Purchase Orders as Draft
When creating a purchase order, if you need to put off creating the PO, you can save it as a Draft through a toggle of a button. This is applicable to draft POs only. For more information, click here.
