Can you remember what you were doing on this day 12 months ago? I was sat in our Swansea office, heading up a strategy meeting with our Product team. We had just kick-started a period of rapid growth for Veeqo, and were planning the next phase of new features for our software. So much has changed since then. We’ve developed, tested and launched an overwhelming amount of new Veeqo features. Today, our software is a significantly more advanced platform for ecommerce retailers. It’s sometimes easy to lose track of just how much we’ve actually rolled out over the past 12 months. In fact, looking at our Trello boards and in our JIRA account, I’ve counted a whopping 108 new features that we launched since August 2016. And an astonishing 572 bug fixes. Today, I’m excited to share with you some of my favourite new Veeqo features. These have all been launched over the last year, out of beta - and live for every single one of our customers. (I won’t share all 108 new features - just the biggest ones!) I’m also going to give you a sneak peek of some other exciting developments happening with Veeqo very soon. So let’s get going...
- Amazon FBA Multichannel Fulfilment. You can now use Veeqo to ship orders received from your branded ecommerce store and eBay marketplaces via Amazon FBA, both manually (one order at a time) and automatically.
