vBarter Software Update
Posted by Bruce Kamm on November 24 2011 06:40 PM

There were numerous software updates and enhancements over the past six months. Many of the enhancements provide for optional features such as API communication between different software applications, mobile phone apps, an Android app, and an iPhone app. 

Following details several of the more notable system enhancements...

vBarter's API server has several new API's that can enable exchanges to add members, query member information, post transactions, get account balance data and more from other software applications and websites. Exchanges desiring custom applications, specialized marketplaces or marketing websites can use these APIs to integrate vBarter functionality into other websites.

Exchanges with Pro subscriptions and above now have a mobile optimized website branded with your logo. Members can login, view account information, post a transaction, search the member directory and view latest marketplace offers with any browser software on any smartphone.

On the Content tab, you can now add video code from You Tube or any other video hosting site to display a video on the home page instead of the about text. 

On the Manage Members page, a new QuickPay icon was added to the Action Buttons to post the receipt of a payment by check or cash from a member. Posting a payment updates the member statement as well as batch processing.

On the Manage Members page, a new Referrals icon was added to the Action Buttons to easily send referrals to members. Simply click the hand icon to select the members and categories that you want to refer to a member and click Send. The member will receive an email with the contact information of all of the referrals you selected grouped together by their business categories.

On the Items tab, we have separated local items (items listed by your exchange members) from global items (items listed by members of other exchanges that your exchange is linked to). You can also filter individual global items that you do not want to display in your exchange by checking the box in the global item manager.

It is now easier to send mail to one or more members, or one or more vBarter alliance exchanges. Simply use the Send Mail app on the Mail tab to send an attractively formatted email branded with your logo to members or exchanges.

All email correspondence and system notices are now sent with the exchange administrator's email address in the From field so that members can reply to emails and notifications. In addition, the emails and templates have been updated.

Watch for addtional updates coming soon...
