Training!
• Attend free workshops or sign up for Retail Academy classes such as…

  • “Data Driven” – Some would have you believe Facebook is the best way to reach your audience, but what does the data say? Learn at UNITE, how to use new data from CBA and our strategic partner to increase your sales. Let data from your market tell you where you can best reach your customers. The answers may surprise you.
  • “There you are!” – Do you realize there are customers looking specifically for you? Customers, who need the unique product and expertise that only you can provide? Let the Social Media experts at UNITE show you how to use the power tools of connection in new ways with valuable results.

Program Changes on May 2018 Update

The monthly update disc you receive from BSMGR for RMS contains a current copy of the Christian Books & More® database, new images, music samples, and program changes. Remember to run IVDC after installing your update to reflect retail prices changes for your store’s inventory items. When that program completes, you can use IVL to print labels with the new prices. For your convenience, the RMS program changes included with this update are listed below.


The following price files for active Munce sales catalogs are included on this update.

  • M-MAY-R.TXT = Spring Sale Catalog – Regular Pricing
    (2-Apr-2018 thru 13-May-2018)
  • M-MAY-C.TXT = Spring Sale Catalog – Conservative Pricing
    (2-Apr-2018 thru 13-May-2018)
  • M-MAY-F.TXT = Spring Sale Catalog Flyer
    (2-Apr-2018 thru 13-May-2018)
    The flyer/insert is included in both the Regular and Conservative catalogs
  • M-JUN-R.TXT = Summer Sale Catalog
    (14-May-2018 thru 1-Jul-2018)
  • M-JUN-RF.TXT = Summer Sale Catalog
    (Flexible dates – set when running IVPROMO)

If you sent out one of these Munce catalogs to your customers, you can run "IVPROMO" in BSMGR and enter the appropriate file name.

As a reminder, the program will check your inventory file for the following:

  • If you are missing products from the catalog, the program will prompt you to add them, pulling basic information (title, author, retail, etc.) from the Christian Books & More database.
  • Once missing products have been added to your inventory file, the program will set up the following for all the products in the catalog file:
    » Sale price; » Sale start date; » Sale end date; » Promo code.


Enhancements and Changes for 8.10


ARCO:
• WASN’T SENDING STORE PHONE NUMBER.
EZDATA:
• FIXED ISSUE WITH EVENT “WHERE” FONT.
FTPTRAN:
• STOPPED DOING “DELETE ANCHOR ACKS” WHEN PREPARING TO SEND AN ORDER TO ANCHOR, THE PROGRAM WAS USING BSMINET TO CONNECT TO ANCHOR AND DELETE ANY PENDING ACKNOWLEDGMENT FILES. THIS LOGIC IS NO LONGER NEEDED AND BSMINET WAS CAUSING PROBLEMS FOR SOME LOCATIONS.
MLPRFM:
• ADDED EMAIL ADDRESS TO MUNCE EXPORT.
SLTL:
• “DID THE TAPE PRINT CORRECTLY” MESSAGE NOW TIMES OUT IN 90 SECONDS. USERS WOULD SOMETIME WALK OFF AND LEAVE THE MESSAGE AT THE END OF THE DAY. IF THE SYSTEM REBOOTED, TOTALS WERE NEVER WRITTEN TO SLE OR CLEARED.


Please contact us if you experience problems installing your update.

Remember, you can view program enhancements and fixes as well as other emailed communications from Bookstore Manager at emails.bsmgr.com.
