WELCOME TO THE MARCH RELEASE NOTES!
While the times we find ourselves living in are unprecedented, it's reassuring to know that you can still rely on Brightpearl carrying on as normal with three new features:
- Integration with Square for Brightpearl POS
- Loyalty and Gift Cards for Brightpearl POS
- On-order inventory level via the API
Brightpearl POS | Square integration
Brightpearl POS | Loyalty and Gift Cards - Integration with Voucherify
Brightpearl POS is enriched with Loyalty and Gift cards functionality. In addition to the existing POS feature set, your customers can buy and spend gift cards, enrol to loyalty programs, earn and redeem loyalty points to pay for their purchases as well as get refunded into gift cards.
Your customers can also earn points from online sales channels. The loyalty and gift cards integration enables you to produce and distribute promotional codes and vouchers for your online sales, too.
API | Product Availability GET - option to include on-order
You can now find the on-order inventory level of a product when requesting its availability via Product Availability GET. On order is a useful figure as it tells you how many items are expected to be received against your open purchase orders into each warehouse.
If you include this option, the response will include both the total quantity across all purchase orders in Brightpearl and the shipped quantity (in other words, the quantity that has already been received). To find the number of items that have not yet been received, i.e. the on-order quantity, simply subtract the shipped quantity from the total.
