What’s New in Channergy 2016

Optional HTML Email Tool

Do you sell products that have complementary items? For example, if a customer bought a pair of boots from you might they also need special socks that make them fit better, keep their feet dry etc? Wouldn’t it be great if you could automatically send emails suggesting those items? You can, with the Channergy email tool.

Big etailers like Amazon, ebay and Jet analyze their customers’ data and present other products they care about. Have you ever visited Amazon and seen they “We think you will also like…” suggestion? Of course you have. Customers expect it and now you can do it proactively with targeted, relevant emails.

Feature Announcement #1

ChannergyInterfaceThumbNew Interface

UPDATE: The new screens are here! The entire Channergy interface has been updated with a new, cleaner look. But that’s not all. The new look also means more efficient screens with more data on each tab and relevant fields are more accessible. Plus, we have dramatically improved the speed of Channergy (over 400% faster!) so you can get more done, more quickly.

From the sleek main menu screen you have access to your online account where you can manage your profile, purchase add ons, download previous purchases and change your subscriptions. The main page will keep you posted of Channergy updates and new tools available to download as well as news about the direct marketing and multi/omni channel industry. Reports, Help and Settings are all available with a single click without losing your place. And you can customize your experience to suit your tastes.

New Dashboard

Optional Dashboard

Included in the new interface is an optional dashboard. We’ve been hard a work building a manager’s dashboard that runs directly inside of Channergy.

Phase 1 is complete and ready to use. Keep track of daily orders, top selling items and shipments all from a single console that updates automatically.

For a limited time we are offering the Channergy Dashboard at an introductory subscription rate of $29.99 per month. Sign up early to get live data direct to your desktop and receive all the Phase 2 enhancements at no extra cost. You can visit the link below to see screenshots of both phases, learn more and sign up.

Feature Announcement #2

Pack & Peel Labels

Print invoices with peel off shipping labels. This feature is accessible from batch processing so you can print multiple Pack & Peel Invoices at once.

 

 


Feature Announcement #3

Improved Point of Sale (POS)

Lots of great POS improvements like fully customizable buttons, touch screen support, incredibly simple user interface for cashiers, support for debit cards, Apple Pay, Android Pay and gift cards, new reports, end of day, shared/separate inventory and more.

Why buy a separate POS when your Channel Manager has one built in?

 


Feature Announcement #4

ebay Auction Scheduler

In addition to keeping your listings updated in near real time, Channergy also includes a full listing tool. Create and list “Good Until Canceled” ebay store listings as well as scheduled auctions. Every ebay field is included in the tool and you can create and use templates and update listings en masse.

Scheduled auctions allow you to set the day of the week an auction will begin, how long it will last and when it will repeat. Channergy will remove auctions when quantities reach zero and relist them when you get more stock. And you can make templates for each auction type and apply them to as many products as you like. It’s fast, simple and effective.

Feature Announcement #5

Newegg

If you are not selling on Newegg you probably should. Their marketplace has much more than electronics (see the full list at the link below) and their commission rate is lower than Amazon and just about any other marketplace.

Channergy now downloads orders, uploads existing and new listings and keeps product quantities and prices in sync, and uploads tracking information for Newegg.

Feature Announcement #6

Channergy is 400% faster

We have dramatically improved the speed of Channergy. You will see  up to 4X the speed! Order entry, reports, scripts, editing and adding products, customers and just about everything is faster in v2016. How did we do it? The database engine has been enhanced and is highly efficient plus we trimmed a lot of fat from the code so everything is faster and reliable.
