What's New In Update 6.2.4?
Windward Software created Windward System Five in 1984. Since then we have been committed to continuously improving our product by developing features and functionality for our core industries. Version 6.2.4 has had some Enhancements that have made their way into General Release. So... here's a preview.
Document Button Enhancement
This enhancement is perfect for clerks who frequently upload or scan necessary handwritten documents and/or photos into an invoice. The new documents button gives quicker access to relevant documents and reduces the number of clicks needed to accomplish the task of uploading documents.
Freeform Fields Enhancement
Anyone looking to have more information available for reference when invoicing, more specifically those needing a snapshot of the customer's purchase history will find this enhancement handy.
The fields are in free format so you can customize any type of information you would like to add (e.g.Color, Formula, or Room in this example for a paint store)
This information can now be easily viewed on the Invoice, within the customer record on the Purchase Tab as well as in the Invoice Report.
Supplier Fields Enhancement
For those of you that use Just-in-Time purchasing models, we've made it easier to view suppliers within the invoice grid.
You can gain visibility to Supplier/Vendor when Customer/Contractors are placing their orders.
Just customize your invoice grid to include the supplier information.

E-Commerce is more important than ever.
We are currently in Beta Testing for a direct connection of Windward to your WooCommerce Cart. For those of you who have a web developer, the Windward e-Comm Connector SDK available for Beta. Contact your Account Manager for details.
Update to 6.2.4.x
Customers are required to be on an active Windward Maintenance Contract or a Windward System Five on Cloud subscriber to install or receive product updates. The Windward Maintenance Contract is a standard annual business expense for all Windward System Five users. Windward Software is in business to support your business, and this plan allows us to bring value to you when you need us most. We put together this top three video to explain what's included.
We've covered many of the main points in this video, but you can find out more on the Windward Maintenance Contract site.
