Cool stuff on the way for your Free Purchase Order Software

Howdy SpendMappers,

We’re starting to roll-out version 14.5 of SpendMapNew Version of SpendMap

Some of the features listed on that news announcement are only available in the web-based version of SpendMap but don’t worry; there’s plenty of great new stuff in the free Windows/desktop version too.

Stay tuned for more details and instructions on how to upgrade your system.

And if that wasn’t enough, we’re already hard at work on the next evolution of the Free Version of SpendMap.  There’s some pretty cool stuff coming in 2018.

 

Free Purchase Order Software is More Popular than Ever

It seems that SpendMap’s Free Purchase Order Software is really catching on.  2016 was our best year ever and there’s still a month to go!

So far just under 100,000 people have visited this Blog from pretty much every country in the world, resulting in around 50,000 downloads so far.

So I think it’s fair to say that you’ll be in pretty good company if you decide to give the free version of SpendMap a try.

Thanks for your support and have a great holiday season!

Upgraded e-mail features in your free Purchase Order Software

We made two fairly significant improvements to the e-mail features in the Free Version of SpendMap (including v12.65)…mail-GREEN

1) Encrypted E-Mail

SpendMap now supports encrypted (SSL/TLS) connections to the mail server.  Better security aside, we have been finding that more and more e-mail providers (like Google’s Gmail) no longer support unencrypted connections.  If you previously had trouble getting SpendMap to work with your e-mail system, please try again after upgrading.

Note the new “Secure Connection” setting under the Server Name or IP Address field, in…
– PURCHASING > Setup system > e-mail settings

Please note that to send e-mail, SpendMap now requires the Microsoft .NET Framework v4.0 or above to be installed on the PC (available since 2010).

We normally don’t make changes to published versions of SpendMap but we made an exception in this case due to recent changes at Google and the increasing number of requests for this feature.

2) Free, Built-In E-mail Service

The free version of SpendMap now includes a free, built-in e-mail service, which you can use instead of configuring the system to use your own e-mail server or ISP.

Just enter “SpendMap” in the Server Name or IP Address field in E-mail Settings to use this free service (don’t worry about the other SMTP settings as they will be ignored when using the built-in e-mail service).  The Online Help for the Server Name or IP Address field has additional details.

For new downloads of the free version of SpendMap, the Evaluation Copy is preconfigured to use this new e-mail service.  If you already have SpendMap installed, your settings will not change automatically but you can manually change the Server Name or IP Address field per above if you want to use this free service.

Free Version now has Purchasing, Receiving and Email Integration modules

Going forward, we’re going to be giving away the Purchasing, Receiving and Email Integration modules.

If you’re already using the free version of SpendMap with different modules, your system won’t change.  New downloads, however, will have these modules.

If you have any questions, please use our Support Ticket System.
