PhreeSoft is nearing the release of Bizuno 2.0. While the new release will have the same look and feel as 1.x, Release 2.0 contains structural changes necessary to covert Bizuno to a stateless design. What this means is that there will no longer be reliance on session variables, tying your current browser to a specific server. This will allow us to alter the load balancing servers on a request by request basis versus a user session basis, geek translation: faster and more reliable page loads.

This upgrade will happen automatically and no disruption in service should be seen.

We have also added a new extension, Customer Drop Ship, which will take an open Sale and automatically generate a purchase order to the preferred vendor to drop ship the order, easy-peasy.

PhreeSoft has submitted it’s initial release of Bizuno for WordPress to the folks at wordpress.org to be included in their plugin repository. The process should take about a week and, if approved, should be available to download through your WordPress plugins page.

In the latest upgrade for PhreeSoft hosted customers, Bizuno will now use a new third party new application, qz-tray, to support label printing. The prior application, qz-print, was no longer supported by most browsers (except IE). qz-tray supports all the major browsers as well as many other USB connected devices. qz-tray can be downloaded at https://qz.io/download/.

PhreeSoft also plans to use qz-tray as a part of the upcoming Point of Sale extension to support bar code readers, cash drawers and receipt printers.

We’re in the final testing for the new Bizuno WordPress plug-in. You will be able to get all the core functionality of Bizuno Basic subscriptions on your own hosted server. Extensions will be available soon after in the PhreeSoft store.
