Every idea for a feature begins as a Spark. The bright flash of concept that someone on our team has or an idea that is brought to us that we feel is worth exploring. Many of the features we offer and that are listed on this page come from our Pathfinder Stores who also test these new features when the time come

Gaming ID Integration
Integration of customers’ game specific IDs – WPN, Cossy, Pokemon, etc – with their customer profile. Streamlining the pre-registration process for events.
Square POS Integration
Full integration with Square website architecture and point of sale system.
We would love to develop and implement every new Spark that comes up, but we only have the resources to develop a few at a time. This is a list of all the features our team is currently Developing and that will soon be tested by our Pathfinder Stores.

Bulk Barcode Printing
We currently have the ability to print any barcode in any format you wish but only at one at a time. We are working to fix this to have mass barcodes printing. Also aiming to have popular formats such as Avery printer sheets as a built in format.
Once we’ve developed a feature we want to make sure that it meets the needs and expectations of our partner stores. At this point we will test it internally to the best of our ability until our team is satisfied that the feature is ready for wide scale implementation.

POS Kiosk Mode

A mode for the Point of Sale system to allow customers to place their own orders in-store.

Once the feature is ready for launch, we will slowly roll it out to a few of our Pathfinder stores to test its performance in the real world. This is to make sure our team gets a chance to the feature work for a real store, under actual live conditions. If for whatever reason the feature doesn’t live up to our expectations, or our Pathfinder Stores have significant feedback, then we may need to bump the feature back to the Developing Phase to make sure we get it right. One of our primary goals is stability, and this gives us a chance to test that. Some features may also be held here to package together or for timed launches.
