To begin 2018 well, I've just deployed an update that makes the app MUCH faster. It was a significant re-engineering which resulted in massive speed increases all over the place, between 20 and 40%, especially noticeable for customers with large BOMs and lots of stock. Enjoy!
Lots of things happened in 2017. In fact, so many things happened that I thought it might be a good idea to write down at least the major features that were introduced last year:
Throughout the year there were also tons of usability improvements and performance fixes, way too many to list them individually.
For those of you who are currently paying for PartsBox, this is your money at work. You are not just paying for the right to use the app, but rather supporting its continuous development and improvements.
Those of you who use the free version: I am trying to provide as many features as possible in the free plans. PartsBox is not crippleware: the idea is that hobbyists/makers should never feel limited and need anything from the commercial plans. And I am still trying to figure out how to create an inexpensive "Hobbyist+" plan with file storage.
This was a good year with healthy growth, and the future looks bright.
I'd like to end this with a sincere THANK YOU to all my customers and to everyone who trusts PartsBox with their data and uses it, whether for their daily business or for their hobby. Your comments and suggestions are always fun to read, I like to learn about your businesses, and I greatly enjoy developing PartsBox because of you!
Have a Happy and Prosperous Year 2018!
PartsBox is an online app that lets you take control of your electronic parts inventory, BOM pricing, and small-scale production. It keeps track of where components are stored, what the current stock levels are, and which components are used in which projects/BOMs.
