You can now update all suppliers simultaneously with Inventory Pat UpdateVIRTUAL_PART_48Virtual Warehouse

We have added an option in the Virtual Warehouse to update all suppliers at once. By selecting the check box you can allow "Inventory Part Update" to make adjustments to selected fields for all Suppliers at once.

Why is this important? With price volatility, supply chain disruptions, increasing tariffs/duty and other considerations for landed cost, it is important to be able to update all suppliers simultaneously. 

Example: Lumber prices surge and your competitors are cherry-picking you because you haven't raised your price.  You need a tool that will allow you to update all of the many suppliers at the same time so that you can make correct assumptions about replacement cost.

Several device manager enhancements have been madePRINTER_SETUP_48Receipts

In this release, we added the ability to toggle the default number of copies for the receipt which can be 1 or 2.  We also added a function to reprint the last receipt in case of a power failure.

JOURNAL_LIST_48Journal Viewer 

The journal viewer can now be opened from the POS device manager.
