That’s our third user group of the year done! We shared our latest updates, and had guest speakers from Fan Factory and Optomany. The next user group will be happening in June (you can sign up and enter your suggestions here).

Our monthly user groups will:

  • Keep our clients updated on recent developments, initiatives and partnerships
  • Inform and discuss the latest market developments
  • Offer training and advice on using our products and integrations
  • Share what we are working on in the coming months
  • Provide a chance to provide feedback and ask questions
  • Be a great networking opportunity

Here is an update of what we discussed in April…

What’s New

AGL Webinar
We have partnered with AGL, who are a multi-carrier parcel management system. You can find out more about this by reading our case study on their integration with Millwall.

Development Roadmap
We discussed the development roadmap for 2021 which included plenty of integrations, enhancements and improvements, and offered our clients the opportunity to prioritise upcoming developments.

We then had guest speakers from Fan Factory and Optomany who shared what they can offer to your retail store…


Fan Factory

Fan Factory power print on demand & product personalisation from manufacture to delivery worldwide, integrated into our ecommerce solution.

Their cloud based software offers a ‘Print on Demand’ solution allowing brands to test the market on a large selection of produts without the normal upfront costs. Fan Factory’s software enables consumers to edit in real time and see the finished product as they type or upload images.

There are a huge array of products that are available from t-shirts and tote bags to cushions and canvas prints. Benefits of the solution include full integration with your online store for one shopping basket, dropshipping & fulfillment options, a free design tool and analytics reporting. 


Pay by Link from Optomany

Pay by Link is essentially a replacement for telephone or mail order transactions. Instead of having to take the customers card details and input them into your system, Pay by Link replaces this step. Pay by Link sets up the transaction and sends the details to the customer (via email, live chat, SMS or however you are communicating with them). The customer can then click on the link and complete the order which will go through the 3D Secure process. This functionality will be available to all our clubs using Optomany V3.
