[March 26th, 2019] Bright Sites New Features & System Updates
Posted by Akhil Shastry on 21 March 2019 02:38 PM

Good Afternoon!

We're always working behind the scenes to make sure you and your clients have the best Company Store experience possible. We'll be updating the Bright Sites system to bring you more features and enhancements. Even though it probably won't take us this long, we'd like for you to plan for up to six hours of downtime on:

Tuesday, March 26th at 10:00 p.m. MTN. 

We realize maintenance windows are never fun for you or your clients, which is why we schedule outside of business hours. And, when you log in the next morning, there's a few things to be excited about!

NEW! Order information can now be automatically sent to participating suppliers via API. 

NEW! Added Tax Code to the Order API and Custom Report Builder

Various bug fixes, minor updates, and security updates.

If you have any questions or concerns about this scheduled maintenance, please contact our Support Team at support@brightstores.com

Thanks so much!

[March 1st, 2019] Bright Sites New Features & System Updates
Posted by Akhil Shastry on 28 February 2019 11:12 AM

Good Afternoon!

We are working on updating our supplier product databases in the Bright Sites and  Bright Orders systems and would like to share some changes with you. 

The following catalogs are now available via PromoStandards:

  • Gemline Catalog
  • HIT Promotional Products Catalog 
  • PCNA Catalog (includes Leeds, Bullet Line, Journal Books, and Trimark)
  • S&S Activewear Catalog
  • Starline Catalog
  • Vantage Catalog
     

Because we are now syncing HIT's Promotional Products Catalog and Gemline's Catalog through PromoStandards, we will be removing their previous catalogs from our system. Additionally, we will be removing any catalogs dated 2014, 2015, and 2016 on Friday, March 1st. This is an effort to clean up our database and maintain the most current products and product options for you to use. 

If you are using products from these suppliers with our Catalogs or Catalogs 2.0 feature, you will need to switch to one of the new catalogs before Friday, March 1st. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our support team at support@brightstores.com. You can view a complete list of our supplier database on our website:  Bright Sites & Bright Orders Supplier List.

Thanks so much!
