15 October - Technological modernisation of the "Contacts" module

For some months now, we have been updating the technology of the contacts module in the background. This will make our product faster for them, easier to understand in operation, and we will be able to implement new functions faster in the future with the new technology. The following functionalities have already been modernised:

  • Create contact
  • Edit contact
  • Mark contact as deleted
  • Restore contact
  • Contact links" area
  • Additional addresses" area

You will notice small changes here and there in the appearance of the user interface. However, the basic functions and workflows remain the same as before.

For some functions, we have deliberately made small improvements directly in the course of the modernisation. One example is the list of contact links.  This now has a modern design. The user has a better overview and can see more information about the contacts at a glance. Via the menu on the right-hand side, the link can be edited and deleted. The operation has thus become even more intuitive.

Old (left) and new (right):

We have improved the interface to Valiant Bank and tested it with some customers in the past weeks. This test phase has now been successfully completed: As of today, the new, improved interface to Valiant is available to all clients. With the new version of the interface we can improve the data quality of the transactions. For you as a client, more and more structured information is now available when reconciling. This structured data forms the foundation for further automation in bexio.
