As we were approaching the last quarter of the year, many of the businesses we work with were thinking of new ways of dealing with Christmas trading - how could it profitable, safe for themselves and their customers, and orderly.
We set out to build a feature that we call FUTURE DATES.
This allows customers to order and pay today and collect or get that order delivered sometime in the future date such as 23rd December.
As with all the features we build there is a nice automated workflow in the backend for the business and for the customer it is all about convenience and simplicity.
Already there are some really useful applications. Charleville Hotel in Cork
