i2i Tech Round-up April 2022

April has flown by in a flash! It’s been a busy month at i2i we’ve been onboarding and training new customers, servicing our existing ones and continuing to enhance our product with further updates including the release of a completely new version of i2i, giving our users more functionality and increased performance.

As always, we’ve been keeping our finger on the pulse of the latest tech news and our First Line Support Manager Bradley has summarised his top 3 highlights of the month.

  1. The news of Elon Musk buying the social media platform Twitter for an incredible $44bn has to be the top tech news story.

Bradley says: “What interests me most about the buyout is the fact that Musk has stressed his passion for the platform to become one for free speech.

He’s also said he’ll completely get rid of Twitter adverts. it will be interesting to see whether either of these things come to fruition especially as the UK and EU have already warned that Twitter must comply with new content rules aiming to prevent hate speech or risk facing sanctions.

2. The next tech update that caught Bradley’s eye this month was the news that watching television is self-driving cars will be allowed.

“This story stood out for all the wrong reasons, I don’t think it’s a very good idea! The article also states that it will still be illegal to go but watching tv won’t be. It doesn’t make much sense to me but it will be interesting to see how it develops as it is supposed to be implemented by 2025. One positive about the roll out of self-driving cars is the prediction that it will boost the economy and creating over 38,000 jobs.” Bradley said.

3. The third tech highlight is that our EPOS system now has back-order capability.

Bradley explained: “This is a big feature for us and a good excuse to shout about the impressive tills! If a customer wants to add something on as a back order that isn’t in stock, the till will automatically place the order under the customer’s account. Automating this process saves time and improves the sales process. The feature also allows the user to select which warehouse a product will be coming from which makes tracking the order and managing stock levels much simpler and efficient.”

A great tech round-up from Bradley!
