• Simplified pricing
Serve all channels with the same price logic from one single source of truth. This version supports the use of complex pricing models in all sales channels - managed from one single place.
• Easy upgrades with the Migration framework
By using our Migration Framework we basically make upgrades easier by scripting upgrades. This framework is now generally available for partners to use for adaptations made during the initial project. This will help partners and customer to manage their customer specific adaptations through future upgrades of Dynamics 365 or Episerver.
• Operational control over Retail Server down time
There might be scenarios, either in production or during development and test, where you want to take down the Retail Scale Units and do so in a controlled fashion. This feature prevents repeated unsuccessful calls to Retail Server from crashing the shop, but it will also temporarily remove all Retail Server functionality from the shop.
• Open APIs for the staging database
The integration has been extended with a web application which makes it possible to access the integration stage database from and external third-party endpoint. The web application may be used and extended by a partner for customer specific requirements. It also allows the hosting of the solution to separate the staging database from the access point.
