Zero BS CRM: Product Update #10 – Feb 2018 (Build up to v3.0)

Zero BS CRM wrote this on February 28, 2018

We have been so busy developing that we’ve barely taken a moment to lift our heads from dev, support, and working with Community members to make our little WordPress CRM absolutely dominating.

Here it is though, the ‘prequel’ to what will be a gigantic update hitting in March.

What is ZBS CRM working toward?

Since we started ZeroBS as a side-project, we’ve always wanted to keep true to the initial intention. No-nonsense, serious software for those entrepreneurs who want to just cut-the-crap and get working. We’re happy to say a year or so later and we’re still delivering on this, and what’s about to come next is the truest version yet.

We’ve been on the tools. Three months so far, developing some of what’ll make up v3.0 of ZBS CRM. This is a big investment, as both founders have been coding above doing marketing! We wanted to make sure the CRM really is stable, performant, no-nonsense, and brutally effective. We’re getting there.

So, in prelude to the big 3.0 release late next month, we’re releasing a few early fixes, improvements, and CRM extension enhancements:

Overview of February’s CRM Improvements:

  • UI Improvements
    • New Contact Singular View
    • New Top Menu
    • New Sub Menus
    • “Learn” Buttons – explain each and every page in the CRM, with guides and videos!
    • CRM Welcome Tour (Admins)
    • Superior Settings Page
    • CRM Team Member management
    • Fancy full-screen mode
  • New Column added to Contacts List view: “Last Contacted”
  • New Quick-filter added to Contacts: “Not contacted in X days”
  • Client Portal refinements
  • Language leaks resolved & translations added for French, Slovenian, Turkish, Norwegian
  • Multisite support
  • Team & User Notifications
  • New List views and other improvements for Transactions, Quotes, Invoices, Companies, Forms
    • Many new quick-filters here (Accepted, Unaccepted, Draft, Unpaid, Paid, Overdue)
    • Bulk-actions for all objects (Add Tag, Remove Tag, Delete Company, Accept/Unaccept, Delete Quote,Change Status (Draft, Unpaid, Paid, Overdue), Delete Invoice, Delete)
    • Custom Trash for Quote Templates
    • Note types to company: Call/Email
  • New method for storing External Source data, and a migration routine to move over old data
  • Improvements to Ownership model
  • Friendly migration routines for everyone on previous versions
  • Updated all supporting libraries
  • Sticky Statuses (in API create.customer)
  • Date formats, locale improvements throughout
  • 47 other Fixes/stability improvements!

As you can see, it’s been no small feat to get this all in for our existing customers, but we’re keen to round-out the CRM ahead of v3.0’s imminent release.

If you’re still sitting on the fence, grab one of our CRM bundle’s now, and save yourself some money!
