Since the Last Update

In June we continued to make improvements to the Circle Gift Card System which is now in beta testing mode. A sharable url is now operational for customers to share their wish lists with friends and family, a handy feature that stores may want to promote in their newsletters. System upgrade work continued including framework, speed and database improvements.
