From Project Management to Sales and from Programming to Customer Support, we expanded the MultiSoft team.
On behalf of MultiSoft Corporation, we are pleased to inform you of the following recent updates to your MarketPowerPRO MLM Software system. The following updates have been automatically rolled into your MarketPowerPRO MLM software system. Some of the updates were automatic while others will require quick modifications by you or MultiSoft per the instructions below:
- Enhancement - New Notifications Management Layout
- The eMail and SMS notifications layout UI (user interface) has been completely re-built to provide a cleaner and more modernized interface. It is now easier than ever to edit the notifications you want to send to your customers and distributors including selecting whether to send by email or SMS, the email address used to send the notification, who receives BCC's and CC's as well as turning the notification on and off as well as selecting the template to use for the notification.
- The drop down selector for the notification will be changing over the coming weeks to a more simple grid view to select notifications from instead of selecting from a drop-down.
- Enhancement - Save and Publish (instead of save and push to publisher)
- This new enhancement allows you to determine via the admin role management which of your company admins can either "save and push to publisher" or "save and publish" content pages immediately.
- Previously, all changes to all content modules had a two step process of saving and pushing to the publisher, who then had to go to the website > publish content area to make the content just edited live.
- You can now skip the two step process and go with a one step save and publish option, however you must edit the roles of each of your admins you want to provide with this level of access (in Users > User Management > Edit User, select Roles, and at the bottom of the page update the roles for Page Publishing and Notification Publishing
- Enhancement - Contact Us Page Layout Re-Designed
- As you know each of your Distributors has their own support page which they can edit, upload their own photo, select their methods of being contacted, add or remove any of their personal profile details, update their social media links, and add / edit their own story.
- The support page generated from the above settings has been given a much more modernized UI (user interface) with proper separation of the MY PROFILE, CONTACT ME, and MY STORY areas.
- In Q1 of 2019 we will be adding a new module to allow your distributors to upload up to 6 photos or 1 video in the lower left pane of their support page, thus giving your distributors more marketing ability to present your products, services, brand, and their own personal story or before and after photos or photos from company events, etc.
- NEW - Coupon System
- A few days before Thanksgiving 2019 we rolled out thew new coupon system which mirrors the coupon system provided by one of the largest online eCommerce providers in the world. All updates, enhancements, features, and bugs have been resolved in the coupon system and we are now accepting suggestions for enhancements to the coupon system via the help desk or directly to your account executive.
- On January 31st the previous coupon system will be sunsetted. Please make certain to create new coupon codes in the new coupon system as we will no longer support the old coupon system after January 1
- New - Shopping Cart Enhancements
- The elves were quite busy the end of 2019 enhancing the shopping cart system even more to give our clients more control over the UI (user interface) and what your customers and distributors see when they go to your shopping cart. To view the new shopping cart settings simple navigate to Company > Modules > Shopping Cart settings and scroll to the bottom of the page
- Hide Buy it Again in Order History: Checking this box will hide the BUY IT AGAIN button that appears in your distributors and customers Amazonesque order history
- Disable borders around images on category and product details page; this is pretty self explanatory, if you don't want the 1 pixel borders around your product images, check this box
- Number of images wide in shop; this is one of the BEST enhancements to the shopping cart system giving YOU total control over how many products you want displayed wide. We've seen Amazon go from 3 to 4 to 5 and now to 5 and 6 wide. As we had this set at a fixed width of 4 images, a number of our clients asked for 3 or 5, so instead of hard coding it for each client, we have now put it in your control
- New - Canonical SEO for Google and other Search Engines
- A canonical tag (aka "rel canonical") is a way of telling search engines that a specific URL represents the master copy of a page. Using the canonical tag prevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs.
- The idea is simple: if you have several similar versions of the same content, you pick one “canonical” version and point the search engines at it. This solves the duplicate content problem where search engines don’t know which version of the content to show in their results.
- The MarketPowerPRO MLM Software now lets you change the canonical URL of any of your saved pages. You only need to do this if you want to change the canonical to something different from the current page’s URL.
- To make the change simple go to the page you want to change the Canonical settings for, click Edit Website > Edit Page settings in the top menu, scroll down 3/4 of the page to directly above the SEO settings, check the Canonical URL box and enter the URL as you want it indexed by the search engines
- New - BlueSnap.com Integration - Now Accept AliPay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Skrill
- MarketPowerPRO is now integrated with BlueSnap.com which brings new alternate forms of payment for your customers and distributors
- Important, only certain payment methods are accepted in certain countries - go to https://home.bluesnap.com/global-payment-types/ for a list of payment methods by country
- Important, you will need to establish a merchant account with BlueSnap to implement any of these payment methods - contact Jeff Coppolo SVP Global Business Development at 781-790-5021 (O) 617-852-1900 (M) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information
- Important, additional fees from MultiSoft may apply for any payment methods that have not been previously implemented such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Skrill
- New - Binary Spilling Method
- If you are utilizing a Binary Compensation Plan there is a new spilling method, which spilling methods can only be set by a MultiSoft Compensation Plan Team Member, entitled "Advanced Spilling"
- Advanced Spilling will provide a Weak / Strong Leg spilling option based on either the Number of Distributors or Volume Accumulated as follows:
- 1st distributor (“A”) introduced by a distributor (“X”) to be placed on usually left; see below for proposed definition of volume
- 2nd distributor (“B”) introduced by X to be placed on opposite side of A (maybe usually right but depends on which side A is on)
- If volume is the same on left and right, the 3rd (and subsequent) distributors (“C+”) introduced by X placed at end of left side of X
- If volume of left and right is different, then place C+ on the side (left or right) which has the lower volume and, within that side, on the bottom of the left side of the deepest leg
- For further details on this spilling method, only for binary compensation plan clients, please submit a help desk ticket
- New - EasyPost.com Shipping Integration
- MarketPowerPRO is now integrated with EasyPost Shipping, which provides powerful solutions that give you more flexibility and control over your parcel shipping and logistics processes.
- Contact your MultiSoft Account Executive or our CTO, Mr. Amit Dey, via the HelpDesk system for further information for integrating your Shipping and Logistics with EasyPost.com
- Sunsetted - Indicia.com Shipping Software
- The MarketPowerPRO MLM Software system will no longer support integration with the Indicia, USPS, shipping software. This integration was sunsetted last year, however it was not removed from the shipping integration settings or our marketing websites, which it has been removed from now
- We recommend ShipStation.com as the best software integration with the MarketPowerPRO system
- Please make certain to check with your MultiSoft account executive or one of our CSR's before signing up with any 3rd party shipping system or any other 3rd party system without first confirming the MarketPowerPRO MLM Software is already integrated with the system or to obtain a quote for the cost of integration before you pay for any 3rd party systems
- Sunsetted - Gift Certificate System
- The gift certificate system in the MarketPowerPRO MLM Software system has been sunsetted immediately due to the 3rd party system integrated no longer being supported
- In Q1 2020 we will be introducing a new Gift Certificate system that is not reliant on any 3rd party software. The new Gift Certificate system will be integrated with the shopping cart system instead of a stand-along module, thus permitting the purchase of Gift Certificates in the shopping cart system. Additionally, the new Gift Certificate system will support "balance remaining" whereas the Gift Certificate system being sunsetted does not support balance remaining.
- Coming Soon
- The following items are currently in development and will be released over the coming days and 2-3 weeks; please make certain to watch for them:
- The newly designed reporting system to replace the current reporting system, which will allow faster deployment of new reports as needed, requested, ordered, etc. and as determined by our CSR's, has been completed and rolled into the mlmbuilder.com deployment system and is being fully tested by our team. We expect to roll this new reporting system to all clients within the next two weeks.
- An all new dashboard system for distributors (1 to start with and 4+ being added over the coming weeks after release) and new KPI (key performance dashboards) for your administrators. The final code updates from our 3rd party integrator have been provided and the first dashboard should roll out in the next week for all of your distributors.
On behalf of the entire MultiSoft Corporation global team, thank you for choosing to partner with us in 2019! We are excited to continue helping you grow your business in 2020.
