[prMac.com] New York NY - Secret Weapon Labs today unleashed version 2.0 of InBloom Shop Software, the world's first complete consignment, resale, retail, thrift, eBay drop-off and gallery solution made for Mac and Windows. InBloom lets independent, small, and medium-sized businesses have an all-in-one inventory management, customer management, point-of-sale, and check-printing solution that is intuitive, fully networkable and customizable. Built upon the FileMaker Pro database framework, InBloom brings all of FileMaker's reknowned power and ease-of-use together in one easy-to-use solution.
"InBloom 2.0 is the most powerful version of InBloom yet and we think people will love our new sales functionality, printing functionality, Twitter-integration, inventory management, and elegant interface" said Denis Somar, Secret Weapon Labs' founder. "And the flexibility to run great software on beautiful Apple computers while being able to simultaneously share information with Windows computers is unparalleled in the resale industry. And we're proud to meet the growing demand for just such a small business solution."
InBloom 2.0 makes it even easier to browse inventory, contacts, and sales with one-click access to a powerful instant-search tool, price trends and suggestions, full inventory management, cash register, Twitter integration for updates, beautiful printing, and more.
InBloom 2.0 provides new features including the ability to save documents as PDFs, generate emails with PDFs attached, and customize printouts easier than ever before. One-click mailing label printing and beautiful templates ensures you always present your business documents perfectly, every time. Simply specify your company logo and store address, and you're ready to print using InBloom's professionally designed printouts. If you want to customize further, you can use FileMaker Pro's easy-to-use layout mode to create your own versions. PDF printing, emailing, and printout customization is currently available only to Pro users with copies of FileMaker Pro.
Direct access to Twitter in InBloom 2.0 allows InBloom users to send updates on the availability of popular products, and more to the millions of Twitter users, with just a click or two.
