In all seriousness, it's been a long time since we've released a What's New update for coreFORCE.
We've been busy at work behind the scenes, making BIG moves to continue pushing forward our motto of unifying and simplifying the way that you do business. This has included the launch of our new product, coreILLA "The Mailchimp Killa", an email marketing platform that blows away the competition. Check out our "Quick Cast" where Joel Cheney and our new Director of Digital Marketing, Chris Pollitzer, talk about the soon-to-be industry standard email marketing platform:
In addition to an incredible marketing alternative, we've also been working on pushing out our incredible new CLEAR 8500 and 6200 credit card terminals that do so much more than any other terminal out there. We've heard incredible feedback about these machines and we're excited to get them into your hands as soon as possible! Check out our NEWEST coreCAST episode where we go on location with our friends at The Powder Room in Panama City Beach, FL and show the new terminals in the wild with some real customer feedback!
And if you're somehow not tired of our videos yet, or maybe if you just miss Joel, Ezra, and I's off-topic non-sense, heres' coreCAST Episode 7 where we talk about probably our most exciting update of the year!
Remember to subscribe so you can see all of these videos hot off the press!
Okay okay, enough videos!
We have so many more exciting things to share. Grab your reading glasses and maybe a fresh cup of coreFFEINE, this may be a long one!
exciting! important improvement One Word... "SPEED"
Over the last month, our developers have been working hard to address speed concerns across coreFORCE and we've managed to increase our page performance across the board, but we are still in the process of making improvements. This is an on-going process, but we are excited to see that Google is giving our websites much higher rankings. Even so, we are committed to continued improvements to improve the customer experience for both OUR customers AND YOUR customers.
I won't go into the nitty-gritty, but a lot of these speed updates have to do with how prices are loaded by the system, how product search results are displayed, Orders Dashboard enhancements, enhancements to how product maintenance loads, and how background processes function.

Checkout Version TWO
If you watched the videos above, you may already know, but we have been working hard throughout the course of the year to modernize the look of the checkout process. We spent a lot of time consulting some in-house user experience and user interface experts and brought our checkout process into the year 2025.
This checkout process has been heavily beta tested by some of the system's largest users and we are confident that this improved checkout will help increase your sales! These checkouts will be rolled out over the course of a few weeks and will be heavily tested on each customer's system prior to launching it.
Please be patient with us as we bring this checkout process to your websites!
