Please note: At ProspectSoft, we use Release Rings to systematically roll out new features to users in a way that minimises risk. This means that new updates aren't rolled out to every user on the day they're shipped. Instead, new versions are gradually delivered to a small percentage of customers each day within our specified Release Rings. Of course, if customers report issues with the new update, we can then pause the rollout while we investigate. So, if you can't see the newest updates yet, don't worry - you'll receive them in the next few weeks.

💰 Aged Receivables for QuickBooks Online

Aged receivables information is now available in the CRM for users of QuickBooks Online. This works if you use QuickBooks as your main inventory system, but also works when using a dedicated inventory system (such as Cin7) and then use QuickBooks Online as your Accounting system.

🧙‍♂️ Magic Matrix on Analysis Page

There's now a Magic Matrix section at the bottom of the Company Sales Analysis page. This shows how well you're doing at cross-selling your different products to this particular customer, along with the progress (aware or interested) with products that you're trying to sell to this customer.

🎁 Dashboard Tiles Based on Revenue Instead of Order Value

An option has been added to calculate some Dashboard tiles using revenue (invoiced value) instead of ordered value, where appropriate.
