Hi Everyone!

We’re excited to announce a new update to coreSTORE! This Fall update comes with some great improvements and exciting new features that will help you get ready for the upcoming busy season. We continue to take all of your input and as usual, many of the updates we made are thanks to you.  

As always we continue to strive for the best customer service experience.  We have added some new staff members and have been improving our internal procedures to make sure that your customer service experience is top-notch.  We fully understand and appreciate the importance of offering not just the best product but also the best customer support.  Our new Customer Success Manager Josh Okey has already been making some fantastic improvements in the short time that he's been with us.  We hope you enjoy a brief introduction to Josh.

Overall, we have put a lot of focus on improving speed in various areas in coreSTORE and fixing bugs (can't get away from those pesky bugs). We’ve also added some new features that will help you focus on what’s most important. 

We hope you enjoy this latest update.

exciting! Speed and More Speed

By now, hopefully, you have noticed the speed improvements made throughout coreSTORE, including searches, screen loading time, and other areas.  Our development team has been hard at work stabilizing and speeding the system up in time for a super busy holiday season.

announcement  We hope to see you on October 27th in Columbus, OH, at the NASGW Show.  We will be in the center of the trade show at the NASGW hospitality area.

new feature Item Modifiers are now Item Options

We have renamed Item Modifiers to Options, and here is a video that describes the changes and gives you an overview of item options.

new feature Email Logs

Watch this video to learn about email logs.  A feature that will help you track down whether an email was sent when you expected it to. 

new feature Employee Login Logs

Several customers requested a full log showing all employee login activity, including the IP address that they logged in from. That's another fantastic suggestion.

new feature Receiving and Selling Items with Variations

We have made it significantly simpler to order/receive and sell variation items.  This short video will show you exactly what was added to make your lives easier.

new feature Printing Labels for Items with Variations

This is another video for this one, but all of these videos are pretty short and get right to the point!  In short - select a variation item on the items screen clock Print Label and watch the magic happen.  You can now print labels for specific variants, and you can specify the quantity of each.

new feature Quickly Access Suspended Sales

Another great customer suggestion that was simple to implement.  A direct menu option to pull up suspended sales.  Simple but effective!


improvement Add Customer PO to the Suspended Sale Screen

If you use customer PO numbers when entering sales orders, you can now add the customer PO as a column on the suspended sales screen.

new feature Inventory Last and Standard Cost

We have added two cost fields to inventory items: Standard Cost and Last Cost.  Many customers business may want to track the standard cost of an item so they can compare their actual buying cost to their expected cost. This helps them determine if you are getting the best price for their items. You can get this information from their suppliers, as well as from market research and industry data.  Last cost is the latest price paid for an item. It is important to keep track of what you are paying for inventory and ensure that you are getting the best prices available. By keeping track of these costs, you can ensure that you are buying inventory at the most cost-effective prices and not overspending on inventory.   coreSTORE will automatically update Last Cost based on the last receiving transaction.  Standard cost is maintained manually by the store.

new feature Auto Split Lines by Item

There are times when you want to ring up the same item multiple times, but you want to split each instance of the item into its own line, so you price each one differently or enter different notes on each line, etc.  The new feature allows you to permanently setup an item so that it always splits that item.

improvement Gift Cards Tracked By Location

If you have multiple locations, gift cards are now tracked based on the location they were purchased from.  Your customers can still use a gift card across multiple locations, but coreSTORE now will track and report gift card liabilities based on the location where the card was purchased.

improvement Bound Book Address Search

exciting! NICS Extension Update

The NICS extension has been updated to support the latest updates made to the NICS background check system (LEEP Portal).  Watch our latest coreCAST to learn more, and don't forget to subscribe to our channel.  You can follow the installation instructions here:

improvement Improved State Restrictions for Firearm Sales

Added a new configuration option to allow users to restrict long gun sales to in-state or border states.  This will prohibit any long gun sales to out-of-state individuals unless the state is a border state.  This is not an ATF requirement, but it is an additional control that you can put in place by choice.  You can optionally specify a waiting period to assign for any long gun sales that are to an individual from a border state.

improvement We do listen and some of you didn't like the new Items Screen layout with multiple columns, so we made it your choice.  Once you choose a layout we will remember your choice.

improvement Item assemblies now support item variations.

improvement If you are using our bound book module you will no longer be able to add serial numbers directly in the items screen.  This is to help prevent mistakes.  Instead any serialized item should be received in the Receiving screen or in the Item Assembly screen.

improvement When an inventory location is excluded from the website a tag will be displayed in the inventory and locations tab.


improvement Removed the ability to mistakenly delete a suspended transaction, without first accessing the transaction.


new feature Added a Detailed item fulfillment report that shows what items in open orders were fulfilled and the dates of fulfillment.  

This report will only show information if you are using coreSTORE to manage your back orders/special orders and updating the fulfilled column.   If you are not familiar with how coreSTORE can manage your back orders and special orders, please watch the video below.

improvement Added manufacturer part number to the Purchase Order printout/email.

Work Order and Transfer Screen

improvement You can now search using the prefix and sale id (e.g. pos1001), this is helpful when scanning a bar code of the transaction id.

4473 Improvements

improvement County field will no longer accept USA or United States as an entry.

improvement Added option of Other to background check for states not using NICS or any of our other options to prevent the expired status in the manage 4473 screen. 

improvement 4473 PDF: PDF generation improved to support special characters.

improvement Added missing question numbers in 4473 instruction dialog.

improvement Removed the date picker from the birthdate field.  Using a date picker to select a birthdate is time consuming and a pain.  Much quicker to type in your birth date.

improvement Current date is now used for signing section B similar to section D.

February 15th coreSTORE Update

news Customer Service Response Times

If you haven't subscribed to our Youtube Channel please click the link below, subscribe and also click the bell icon to get notified when we publish a new video.  Our goal this year is to significantly increase the number of videos we are publishing.  We currently have just under 200 videos with nearly 50,000 views.  Most of our videos are instructional product related videos, and a few are amusing.

Our latest coreCAST is about customer service which is SO IMPORTANT for us.  Our goal is to meet and exceed your expectations.  We know it's been tough lately, we are adding more staff and if you know someone that you think would be a great addition to our team, please have them email me their resume directly to:  ezra.weinstein@coreware.com.



news Bug Fixes

We have many new customers so I wanted to let everyone know how we address bugs. Wait...did we just say bugs?  Yes BUGS!  EVERY SOFTWARE APPLICATION has bugs.  It's the nature of the beast.  The more features a software application has, the more bugs it has.  Our goal is always to squash those pesky bugs, but sometimes that's easier said than done.  The hardest bugs to squash are the ones that we cannot recreate.

Typically we categorize bugs based on priority.  Any urgent bugs are fixed and deployed ASAP, we do not wait for our regular update cycle.  We are fixing bugs every day, we don't list the bugs we fixed because many bugs are unique to a particular customer, and many are not experienced by most users.  But rest assured, we are always at work addressing these bugs.  Keep in mind, the longer it takes us to fix a bug, the more users report it, and the more tickets come in which of course frustrates our customer service team.  

Always remember - WE ARE NOT THE ENEMY!  We are doing our best, and a problem that affects you, affects us too, an issue that costs you time and money has the same exact effect on us.  We are in this together and our entire goal is to make your lives easier.  Please keep that in mind and PLEASE be patient with us.
