A message from our CEO, Kirk Simpson:
As we approach the end of the year, we wanted to give you a few little gifts to make you smile.
Let's start with speed.
Simply put, nobody likes pages that take a long time to load. So we've made a bunch of improvements to Wave — from added horsepower on our servers, to reprogramming how certain pages function. The result: A huge boost to speed.
On the Dashboard, some customers will see page load times cut by 50%.
On the Transactions screen it's even better. Time lag for verifying transactions has been cut by 95% — and in some cases, even more!
This is just the start. We will continue to maximize performance through every page in the application, so that we can get you back to doing the things you love.
As well, we recently improved how bank connection problems are managed. If Wave encounters an error importing transactions from your bank or credit card accounts, there are now better notifications and processes about what needs to be done to get things up and running again. We know that connecting your bank account is one of Wave's great time-saving features, and we want to ensure you get maximum benefit out of it.
Looking toward 2016...
These improvements are a nice way of capping off the work the team has done this year. In 2015 we're proud to have delivered more than 1,000 changes and improvements — some big, some small — that make invoicing and payments, accounting and payroll even better.
As I told you a month ago, we have big plans for the coming year. We've already launched tests for new accounting and invoicing features, involving more than 10,000 customers.
Though we keep a lot of the details under our hat until things are ready to launch, I can say that we expect several invoicing improvements to roll out in early January, including a new set of invoice templates. The templates, and the emails that deliver the invoices, were professionally designed not just to look good, but to get your customers to pay you faster.
As we move into 2016, I want to thank you for your ongoing support of Wave. When we hear that Wave is making you more successful with your business, it drives us to work even harder to help you achieve your dreams. We're looking forward to doing more for you in the coming year.
From the whole Wave family to you and yours, I wish you a safe, peaceful and happy holiday season.
