13 February 2012Happy Endings
The client's just finished telling you there's no money for the website. Of course there'll be heaps to go round once it's up, but in the mean time would you just whip something together, you know - for next-to-nothing.
You smile sweetly, spending a moment, dreaming of the next awesome site you'll actually be well paid for.
Then leaning forward, you quietly tell them you've got just the thing.
That's because we've got just the thing...
Yip, we're announcing a Boss variation for the strapped-for-cash start-up client, the very-low budget client & that dastardly client who thinks you're their pencil.
Quickly customisable, with the "Vanilla" template, it comes with the Boss CMS, shopping cart facilities and our remarkable service. What's more — we can launch it in an afternoon tea break while we are building your next really awesome website (like this one).
Just $495.00 retail, with wholesale prices for Graphic Designers.
2 December 2010Syntax highlighting and full HTML email supportWe've now got a live release with full syntax highlighting (Version 22.214.171.124) for the Website Templates section and our current working release has full support now for HTML emails.
You can download email templates that you like from anywhere on the web and integrate them into your Boss.Console to be utilised with any of the automated email systems.
Upcoming features is a rework of the form manager area to include fully scriptable forms and some cool new additions to the Boss.API including notification of first ever login in the Account Object as well as "just logged in".
8 September 2010Introducing Boss ExtensionsJust quietly we've been busy working on some rather significant pieces of code which do not fit the description in terms of stock standard Boss software because it's code that performs pretty dedicated and unique tasks which would only suit a very small number of clients.
So we've packaged together a number of these pieces of code and are releasing them as Boss Extensions which will be available to anyone running a Boss website.
On their release there will be three of them:
Boss Voucher - which is the old module but did not ever really fit the description of what our other modules were.
Boss Vault - store actual files (word doc's, mp3s, images etc.) securely on your website behind the Boss.Client permissions model
Boss Campaign Manager - brilliant if your running online advertising campaigns and want to track the effectiveness of those campaigns in real time now, post campaign you can measure the ongoing benefits that those campaigns introduced to your website.
Pricing will be available shortly.
Bla bla bla - that's enough technical stuff - we hope you like the site, we're really looking forward to going to Semi and meeting new designers who just want to design websites like they want them and make us get it to work (plus sort out everything else like hosting, domains, emails, backups, training support, upgrades etc with all the best providers and at no extra cost!).
6 April 2010Boss.Client Custom FieldsWe've made steps towards the having custom fields in the Boss.Client module. We're currently using it ourselves internally to test it and although there is still no Boss.Console interface for creating these fields we can set up some for anyone interested as we further develop it.
22 March 2010Oh beautiful spreadsheetsOur latest release is bubbling away and it's all about reporting. We have some beautiful spreadsheets on the boil which will tell you everything you need to know about the your best hour/day and month of sales along with some very pretty graphs and some raw data for your own processing. Hopefully some pictures to come if we can find some nice sanitized data for posting.
