Tired of PDF?

We have heard this for a while. Up until today, your best bet was always printing to PDF however for the past 8 months we have prodded Microsoft to fix a bug they have refused to address saying it was a design approach. We struggled to find a solution until we merged our ideas with some [...]

Link the Customer and the Location

By | 2016-02-29T18:17:40+00:00 February 17th, 2016|

Need to streamline the order entry process a bit - link your customer and their delivery location together at the customer level so it becomes one less step at the event level. This approach also works for Delivery Dates, Pickup Dates and Event Types.

An Event Peek Window

By | 2016-02-29T18:19:10+00:00 February 12th, 2016|

An ongoing challenge for Accounting and Sales is who can see versus update a past order. In Fusion, we took a very strong approach to "locking" orders. Working with one of our customers we have created a new "Peek" window that allows the user to look but not touch if the order is locked.

Improved Event Order Details

By | 2016-02-29T18:32:32+00:00 February 8th, 2016|

Fusion has been designed to use large monitors making as much information available as possible. One of the struggles is getting too much information on the screen or in some cases too little. One of our clients mocked up some suggestions and bingo it was a success. This new approach gave a few more lines of the [...]

Events Map

By | 2016-02-16T10:32:01+00:00 January 31st, 2016|

At the request of one of our clients, we replaced their existing manual Google Maps project by automating the process in Fusion creating daily maps based on delivery, pickup schedules and event times. Zoom in like any other map interface and see cross-streets, details, etc., even hover over the colored dots to see details about [...]

Recipe and Menu Add-Ons

By | 2016-02-29T18:25:36+00:00 January 12th, 2016|

A new feature for the Fusion Recipe and Menu Management module is the ability to link add-on items to each recipe or menu package. This new feature allows the chef to set up common add-on items during the sales process either at the Fusion desktop or in the web API.

Distance Based Delivery Charges

By | 2016-02-29T18:21:55+00:00 January 8th, 2016|

We have implemented in Fusion (and our web API) the ability to determine the delivery mileage via Google web services. Set a flat rate per mile and the web service will include the fee to every order automatically.
