Mobile Device Notifications

Download on the the app store

In ECT Version 7.0.5 we introduced the ECT iPhone / iPad app where you can receive notifications of orders via your iPhone or iPad, view recent activity on your store and list monthly / annual sales reports. This a really handy application for when you're away from the office allowing you to always keep in touch with your sales.

The first thing you will need to do is open an ECT Account, this will allow you to receive notifications of orders from your iphone by pairing the store with the app.
