Good news for the e-commerce websites created with UGAL: UGAL was just updated with new order and customer account features.
February 19, 2014
The server infrastructure that powers UGAL has been upgraded over the last 2 months. It was an important project for us, and we wanted to take the time to have solid data before reporting any results.
The time someone waits for a web page to display includes time spent by web servers for building the page. Faster response times are always better, for the experience of your visitors and for search engines (site speed is one of the factors used by search engines to rank websites). Our goal with this upgrade was to optimize our current infrastructure to reduce our processing times.

A few days ago, we deployed on our servers one of the most important feature of the last few years: unlimited HTML newsletters. Yes, unlimited and HTML :-)
Newsletters are a very important because they are so efficient at broadcasting your message to your website audience (prospects, customers, fans, members...). That's why UGAL has had the feature for a pretty long time and why we are so happy to finally be able to support HTML newsletters.

Here we go with our first stride with HTML newsletters. You can now create and send newsletters containing basic HTML formatting: titles, paragraphs, links as well as text formatting (bold, italic, lists).

After launching the newsletter lists last week, we quickly realized (thanks for the feedback !) that we were missing a critical functionality: the ability to automatically assign subscribers to one or more list, based on their origin. So here we go, subscribers can now be automatically be assigned to lists:

We are happy to announce that our newsletter module (available to Business and E-commerce plans) was just updated. The newsletter module now supports lists management, subscriber history and newsletter history.
More changes to the newsletter module are coming soon, help us out and give us your feedback !

Your website with UGAL comes with a built-in search engine. Over the last few weeks it became slower than we wanted. After troubleshooting for a while, we have decided to upgrade the search engine to its own server and take advantage of the migration to update Solr, the open source solution we use for search, to its last version.
The move and the update are now complete, and we are glad to report that the search functionality on UGAL is back to its usual fast performance.
Give your search engine a try, and please report any issue or comment to email@example.com.

Here we go with an update that should please users of the e-commerce website plan. The "Store" tab has been re-designed and contains now a new "Prices and inventories" page from where you can do lots of crazy things.

A quick post to let you know that the intranet option was just updated with support for an extra level to manage members: companies.
This new hierarchical level let you consolidate user data by company, which is useful for example for b2b e-commerce websites where the same customer can have multiple users ordering from your website. By grouping those users within the same company, you can review the orders placed for the compamy, regardless of which user placed it.
Creating and managing companies is done from the "Users" tab. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about this update.

You probably know the "admin view" that allows to quickly view and manage a product catalog. We are happy to launch today the admin order entry, for the e-commerce websites.
With this new feature website administrators can create e-commerce orders without having to navigate the product pages on the website front end. It is of particular interest for b2b websites where pricelists and terms can be complex, as well as for taking phone orders or for private sales.
