This year for our conference special we will be giving an 11.6″ Acer 360 Touch Chromebook to every store that decides to become a Circle Software customer.
Budgeting for Bookstores, the Barefoot Investor Way Scott Pape, author of the best-selling financial advice book The Barefoot Investor, urges readers to divide their income into 60 per cent ‘safety’, 20 per cent ‘saving’, and 20 percent ‘splurge’. In other words – to set up their buckets.
Ruby on Rails 4.2 Over the past year our developers have been upgrading the framework that the Circle system is built on, from Ruby on Rails 3.2 (R3.2) to Ruby on Rails 4.2 (R4.2).
Between 2009 and 2015 the number of independent bookstores across the USA grew by 35%, from 1,651 stores to 2,227. So, how did they do it? Associate Professor at the Harvard Business School, Ryan Raffaelli, puts this down to booksellers ability to reinvent and redefine the bookstore.
The focus in February has been on the DPS EFTPOS integration, data migration tools, and Rails 4.2 testing – which we need more of to ensure fewer problems arise when we push to prod.
This Payment Express integration has the potential to give you Circle POS on a hand-held device, like an iPad. Contact Lucy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested!
February’s Best Seller is Mark Manson’s ‘The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck’, moving 883 copies. Scott Pape’s ever-present ‘The Barefoot Investor’ remains in the top 3, selling 726 copies this month. While new release and New York Times Best Seller ‘The Woman in the Window’ by A. J. Finn follows with 501 copies sold.
