New Release! 8.2.52!

It’s Release Day! Our developers have been hard at work on this one. They’ve been taking suggestions from our customers, monitoring RetailEdge for bugs or glitches, testing new features to make sure they work properly, and so on to give you 17 new features and 20 minor fixes.

This release has a lot to do with user productivity and minor fixes that some users were experiencing. Most notably we are proud to say we have added a tip functionality to Vantiv Integration. Simultaneously, we enhanced our Cayan tip feature to properly handle multiple cards and card types, donation roundups, and partial approvals.

A lot of our customers suggest features that are already in RetailEdge and have been for years. That’s why these release notes are so important to look over to make sure you get the most out of our program. If you find yourself running an older version or would like to a refresher on our most popular (and maybe unknown) features, feel free to shoot Sales an email requesting training or to get current on the newest version.
