Wow, what a roller coaster of year it has been so far! Who would have thought a global pandemic would have played out this time last year. We hope your business has been able to survive, adapt, and prosper online through these rough seas.
Here in the TOTECS RnD Labs we've been a little quiet, however there's still been a hive of activity on the TOTECS platform in the background, as we ride through the waves of lock downs here in Victoria. Over the last 7 months we have churned out 3 platform releases, adding 17 improvements and 17 bug fixes across the 14.01, 14.02, and 14.03 releases, as well as continuing to bring new capabilities into the Connector software.
In the TOTECS releases we've created some great feature enhancements available for your websites, helping to give you further flexibility and tools to engage your customer bases online. In the current climate this is of utmost importance, in the socially distancing, mask wearing era, where online is often the best, and sometimes the only way to do business.
You can check out all the great changes available by watching the latest release video, or clicking on any of the links below to take you to details of a specific feature or enhancement.
As we get deep into the second half of the year all of us at the TOTECS team are here to help and support your online business, as well as help you navigate the various threats and opportunities that present themselves in this crazy time in history.
Many regards from the TOTECS team
