The November update

Today we have released a major update of Picqer, called the November update.

For this update we focused entirely on improvements for Picqer Fulfilment, the version for fulfilment companies. Because everyone uses the same Picqer platform, most of these updates are usable for everyone.

Buy your hardware in the Picqer Shop

The Picqer software works best with the right hardware, such as printers and barcode scanners. But there are so many options and suppliers available that it's hard to choose the best hardware. To help you out, we launched the Picqer Shop. Where we have made the best hardware choices for you.

The Picqer Shop

Personally tested

All products in the Picqer Shop are personally tested by us and work well with the Picqer software. In our shop you'll see the hardware with the best value for money.

Start quickly

This way we will quickly help you to make your warehouse even better. Products ordered before 16:00 hours are delivered next day (only within the Netherlands).

Visit the Picqer Shop

Of course, you are free to use other supported hardware or to buy the recommended products anywhere else. The Picqer Shop is only available as an additional service to start quickly and without any hassle.

Returns via the Picqer API

In June of this year, we launched Returns in Picqer. With Returns you have all returned orders in one central place. We now make this feature accessible for customization through the Picqer API. We also added webhooks for Returns.

What you can do with this? For example, you can create a return form that allows customers to announce their returns. And via webhooks it is possible to refund orders automatically when they are received in your warehouse.

See the API docs for technical details.

New to the team: Bo

Bo from Picqer

Hello everyone, my name is Bo Hendriks and since this month I’ve been working for Picqer as Allround marketeer. I will work closely with the team to help Picqer grow.

My work consists of managing the website and blog, sending newsletters and organize events such as the annual Picqer Meet & Grill. Before I joined Picqer, I worked for a distributor. We imported and distributed games, consumers electronics, PC accessories and software within the Benelux. During that period, I developed my interests in e-commerce, retail, warehousing and logistics.

The nice thing about Picqer is that it’s a young and driven team of people. All with the same enthusiastic mindset, developing the best warehouse software for webshops. In order to achieve this, it is important to listen carefully to customer feedback. During the ‘Picqer Meet & Grill’ of this year, I have been able to get to know many of you. Very nice to hear all those different stories from entrepreneurs with each their own passion.

In my spare time, I like to visit festivals with friends, run outside and work on small IT related projects. Traveling is also one of my hobbies. In February I will visit Lapland with my girlfriend!

I'm curious what the time will bring. And I'm really excited to work for Picqer and to know you all!
