TOTECS Platform Release 13.01 and 13.02

Over the first half of 2019 the TOTECS team is too excited to bring you a wealth of improvements and new functionality into the TOTECS platform, with 2 new features, 14 improvements and 15 bug fixes through the 13.01 release and 13.02 releases.

Included in these releases is the new "2 Factor Authentication" capability for user login. When enabled it allows a user to receive and enter an additional authentication code that is sent to their phone via SMS, before being able to complete login. This ensures that only when the user has their phone on them are they able to login to your website and order, reducing the ability for users to pass credentials around, as well as hinder hackers from being able to login with stolen credentials.

A new data import has been added to the platform that allows Currency Exchange Rates to be imported via the Connector software. This can automate updating the rates when a website has the multi-currency feature turned on. Using the Connector the exchange rates can be obtained from many 3rd party exchange rate websites and banks, allowing for automatic updating of exchange rates at scheduled times. This helps overseas customers see more accurate product pricing in currencies they are familiar with.

Plus there are many other great time-saving improvements in these releases. Watch the first 3 minutes of the release video to get a brief overview of the great new enhancements we've made in the release, as well as watch in-depth detail on all the important improvements. Also feel free to subscribe to the TOTECS youtube channel to stay in the know, or talk to us on the TOTECS forums

Many happy regards from the TOTECS team.
