S|R UPDATE 2022
Dear S|R software user,
we are pleased to inform you that the new version S|R 2022 is available and will be distributed to all customers via the automatic update. With the update, we are consistently continuing the expansion of our software with additional interfaces, new functions, and many optimizations in detail.
S|R RENTAL 2022 - SETTING OUT FOR A NEW GENERATION
With the S|R 2022 version, we are heralding a new S|R software generation. The central innovation is the implementation of a new data core that will be added to the current system. With this interface, which is based on the REST standard, the previous Windows-oriented system receives a new, open and powerful communication system that enables the simple and effective connection of external applications. All new interfaces already implemented by S|R are based on the new connection.
S|R REST SERVER | THE INTERFACE FOR YOUR APPLICATION
With the new S|R REST Server, we offer all customers and partners a powerful retail and rental data interface that can be used to connect a variety of other applications such as e-commerce solutions, merchandise management systems, online reservations, as well as POS systems and mobile applications. You have the advantage that you can fall back on a defined, standardized interface, which is also continuously expanded and improved. If you are interested in connecting your solution, please contact us.
All future new developments and extensions of the S|R software applications will be based on the new core. Your own applications and developments will benefit accordingly from the continuous further development, optimization and expansion of the data interface.
Einige Möglichkeiten des neuen Systems sind bereits in die Erweiterungen der Version S|R 2022 und in unser Skipline Online-Reservierungssystem eingeflossen. So wurde beispielsweise die Online-Verfügbarkeitsprüfung für Skipline mit Hilfe des neuen REST Servers realisiert. Andere Beispiele für die Nutzung der neuen Möglichkeiten sind die Anbindung des Geomix eCommerce Shopsystems oder die neue Intersport Datenschnittstelle, mit deren Hilfe die Intersport-Zentrale mit direktem Datenzugriff an alle Filialen angebunden werden kann.
NEW INTERFACES IN VERSION S|R 2022
S|R Rental now has an interface to the Intersport system in Switzerland. The interface allows the exchange of customer data between the systems as well as the transfer of payments to the Intersport interface.
S|R TO CYCLE
S|R Rental has an interface to the Cycle software of the company App-Room from version 2022. Rentals are made in S|R Rental, and receipt data is sent to Cycle for payment. The new interface also enables the exchange of customer data between the applications..
S|R Rental now has an interface to the new Intersport system in Austria. The interface allows customer data to be queried in Intersport's customer management system and payments to be transferred to Intersport's interface. Customers receive bonus points in the Intersport system when they make a purchase, which can then be redeemed later.
S|R FIAS is an interface that allows you to connect S|R Rental directly to a partner hotel. With S|R Fias, you have the ability to post invoices from your store or rental directly to a customer's hotel bill. Hotel guests can thus make cashless purchases directly from you..
S|R Rental has been enhanced for all customers from Italy with a query of the tax lottery number when creating receipts. When paying in the cash window, the query of a lottery code has been added when transmitting to SrFiscale, which outputs the corresponding lottery code on the receipts.
ENHANCEMENTS IN THE CURRENT VERSION S|R 2022
With the new REST server, the foundation has been laid for future S|R generations. On this basis, we will successively convert S|R Rental to a modern graphical user interface. For the 2021/2022 season, the familiar classic SPORTS RENTAL view will remain. However, there will also be three major enhancements to this familiar interface:
QUICK VIEW OF PRODUCT DATA
The possibility to view product information directly in the S|R Rental home screen has been extended. With the new function, a user can view detailed information about products, including photos, directly on the S|R home screen and no longer has to switch to the master data to do so. Important information can now be accessed with just one click.
QUICK VIEW OF CUSTOMER DATA
The slide-in function supports you in the collection of customer data and the important data protection consents, as it automatically reminds you to obtain the necessary consents from your customers. Depending on the default setting, a dialog opens when you select a customer for whom data still needs to be added, reminding you to obtain consent to store the data. The call of the dialog is optional, depending on the default setting. Here, too, the master data do not have to be called up for the subsequent maintenance of the data, the entry is made directly in the dialog window. Please note the various setting options of the function.
CREATE SERVICE OPERATIONS DIRECTLY
Service procedures for your own items or customer items can now be created directly in the S|R Rental window without having to call up S|R Process or S|R Service Pro. Quick creation is done simply by right-clicking on the Service Pro or S|R Process button, or by scanning or entering the appropriate barcode. This makes your already fast service even faster, easier and more efficient.
S|R SKIPLINE DASHBOARD
The Skipline Dashboard is the control and management center for your online reservations. The dashboard clearly displays your online reservations and check-ins and helps you monitor them in real time. New features have been continuously added to the dashboard throughout 2021. For example, you can now activate and administer availability checks for rental items through the dashboard, as well as query additional desired properties. Furthermore, you can activate and deactivate your digital signature in the dashboard at any time and define the contents of the disclaimer yourself.
TAKE YOUR MARKETING TO A NEW LEVEL
With the S|R Bonus and S|R Coupon modules, you can take your marketing to a new level, because they are the perfect tools for customer loyalty and for marketing your services and products.
INCLUDED FREE OF CHARGE AS OF VERSION 2022
From S|R version 2022 S|R Bonus is included in your SPORTS RENTAL software. S|R Bonus is a function that allows you to offer your customers the collection of loyalty points in your customer account. You award bonus points for purchases made and thus provide your customers with an incentive to shop with you again and again. S|R Bonus is an extension of S|R Retail, the merchandise management module from S|R Software.
The Coupon Module is the perfect way to integrate coupons into your daily business. With its options, they increase customer loyalty. Coupon also works together with the integrated bonus system.
For example, one possible use case for Coupon is to convert credit from rental transactions into a voucher instead of paying out the amount to the customer. You benefit twice, as you do not have to pay the service back directly and the customer has a strong incentive to lend again in your store due to the coupon.
Another possibility would be to create general value coupons that you can send to your customers as part of promotions, e.g. by e-mail.
The interaction of S|R Bonus and S|R Coupon gives you even more marketing options, such as converting bonus points into coupons, which you can then also provide to your customers by e-mail or mail. This creates a strong incentive among your customers to visit your store again and again.
