A new update of the base version of the i-systems e-commerce system has been introduced. Release 4.5 includes significant improvements in price interpretation and memory optimization. A new Price List Module has also been created.
Prices in the product
Products in the database have their prices assigned. In release 4.5, it was possible to pin down any price source for a product, such as a price list module or a database of previous prices stored in products. This means that when a customer wants to use a price from another source, they will automatically be downloaded without importing them to the i-systems database.
Optimization of the store
A number of modifications have been introduced to speed up the store’s operation and reduce the amount of memory required. The profiling of the store was conducted, which resulted in accelerating the operation of the store, thanks to the reduction of the amount of memory needed. The time needed to render a page: the home page, the product listing, and the product sheet has been reduced. From now on, less memory is required, and the basic version of e-commerce system has been significantly accelerated. This means that the server response has been optimized as well as the memory requirement per query.
Price List Module
The new Price List module allows you to manage prices not only for products, but also for sets. Up to now, there have been four types of prices attributed to the product: standard, promotional, wholesale, variants. Nowadays, it is possible to create an infinite quantity of price lists and add an infinite number of prices to them. They can also be hierarchized by setting a pricing strategy based on the criteria. This provides a great price management option. This also applies to foreign price lists, which are not part of the price list module. An example of such a price list may be the currency price list, which retrieves data based on its exchange rate. Thanks to the Price List module you can download price lists from another module in real time.
Release 4.5 also includes other improvements, such as changing the way currency and the country are selected. The customer stores information about the country and the currency is assigned to the country. There has also been unified form generation for ordinary payments and multi payments.
The release is an update of the base version of the e-commerce system, where the new functionalities are regularly added. Thanks to the update, it is possible to develop the system and adapt it to the changing market. It is also possible to update dedicated solutions in subsequent releases.
