  • New Best seller report
  • New Website
  • Agency addition
  • Further SEO and website performance monitoring

Things we are working on that are likely to take longer

  • Bootstrap 3 upgrade in the back office starting with customer order picking and returns

New things we want to make a start on

  • Rails 4 upgrade
  • Use of docker to dynamically scale the system based on demand.
