We recently did an infrastructure upgrade to bring you an even better EZOfficeInventory experience.
We’ve moved to upgraded set of servers that are significantly faster, where computational power has more than doubled. You will notice that all actions, including reports and excel imports, have become even faster.
We’re now on Rails 4.2 and Ruby 2.2 (latest versions). This means you’ll be able to receive next generation features and experience better performance.
At EZOfficeInventory, we go an extra mile to ensure that your data is secure. We’ve introduced a number of fresh security improvements. The application is now completely on HTTPS*, which means all data transfer is encrypted. The password policy has been upgraded as well and now requires new passwords to have both numbers and alphabets.
*Switch to HTTPS is seamless. However if you experience some connectivity hiccups, contact your network admin to ensure that the proxy/gateway settings do not impede HTTPS traffic.
We dispatched a power-packed upgrade a few days ago, promising more. Here is the sequel to get you hooked on the happiness of being super-productive. With these new boosters activated, you are light-speed ahead of others.
Features released today include:
- Bundles to optimize checkouts based on available asset characteristics
- Transfer of asset possession from one custodian to another
- Transfer of stock items between locations
- Customized listing view for assets and inventory on mobile apps
At midnight today (Oct 31st) we rolled out a major infrastructure upgrade, aimed at greatly enhancing EZOfficeInventory’s availability, performance and robustness.
How does it effect me?
The upgrade should be seamless for users on desktop browsers. However, EZOfficeInventory mobile apps users will need to refresh their apps so that they can sync up with the upgraded server components. The following actions need to be taken on different mobile platforms.
Reboot the EZOffice app. Refer to the following link for details http://iosguides.net/force-quit-reboot-app-iphone-ipad/
Since there is a wide variety of Android devices in the market, some users may run into errors while using the app and will need to clear the data cache. A simpler (and recommended) workaround is to simply uninstall and re-install the app from the Google play store. Note: Uninstalling the app will NOT result in data loss as the data resides in our cloud based servers
