Update 16 brings a brand-new organisation management area, lots of data updates, the ability to update to the latest boundaries (finally), and much more.
An entirely new way of managing your organisation in Vision
Your new organisation administration area is finally here. With a completely redesigned UI, simpler processes, statistics that help you drive more value from your subscription and much more, managing your Organisation's subscription doesn't get much better than this.
Updating your territories to the latest Postcode and Admin boundaries
There are lots of demographic and boundary updates being made available with Update 16, some of which have been held back until we completed our boundary update tool.
With so many clients operating a franchise model, we have unique insight into how boundary changes can affect a business. Whereas data updates are normally forced upon you, changing boundaries can have a knock-on effect on your franchise agreements. The reality is that geography is ever-changing with these updates representing the here and now. They need adopting, but we wanted to make sure that you were given as much knowledge as possible and had time to prepare for these and any future updates.
With Update 16, you get just that. An upgrade summary informs you of some of the major changes, allowing you to take note, prepare, and when you're ready, just push the button to update.
Of course, even our process can't tell you everything (but we'll keep working on it), and we strongly recommend you take some time to appreciate what can happen in boundary updates, how Vision can help you, and the update process itself in our help centre.
