“On the Road Again” – See you in Lexington!

The twins are looking forward to connecting with many of you next week at CPE in Lexington!

As always, we will provide free training at the show – scheduled from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM on Sunday morning (Aug 6th).

If that’s too early, Steven and Jon will be available in our booth (#804) while the show floor is open.

We continue working to provide improvements that help make things easier for you. Here’s a short list highlighting a few things recently added…

  • Automatically add a “Convenience Fee” to credit card transaction
  • Added support for SFTP (for changes made by Ingram for electronic ordering)
  • We’ve had support for sending emails using Google’s OAUTH (Gmail) for a few years. We recently added support for Microsoft’s OATH for sending emails using Office 365/Outlook.
  • Food Labels (1″ x 1″)
  • Jewelry (barbell-shaped) labels

Plus, we are doing our final testing on sending text messages directly from within BSMGR to your customers. Our initial thoughts are that it would be useful for special order notifications, texting receipts, and maybe notifying cafe customers that their order is ready to be picked up. We’d love to hear some feedback from you on how integrated texting would help you better serve your customers.

Stop by the booth (#804) and ask any questions you have. It can be about recently added features or maybe something that’s been there for a long time, but you want to start taking advantage of it in your store.


You can just stop by to say “Hi!”

Whether or not you are attending CPE, we pray that you are having a positive impact on the lives of those that come to your store.
