2021 has been quite a year for all of us! And there’s no exception here at BrightStores. We have been busy adding robust new features to both our Simple and Company Store Platforms, working with old and new clients, and accepting awards! We can’t wait to dive in and tell you more about the exciting events that this year has held, and share a sneak peek into what 2022 has in store. Keep reading to hear all about it.
Over 30 New Features!
That’s right – over thirty new features! We’ve listened to what you wanted and put it into action. Between brand new Integrations, Storefront Updates, Security Features, Shipping Updates, and even Artificial Intelligence just to name a few, you will be busy exploring everything we have worked hard to make happen this year! Let’s take a look at some of the highlights:
There is something for everyone! Between Admin Features, Store Design, Checkout and Payment Features, Permissions, and Store Security Updates, we have added a new integration to every facet of our system to ensure maximum efficiency. Our new Integrations include PayPal, QuickBooks, Zapier, and many more. Since there are new integrations in almost every category, we are confident there is an integration that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without. For a full list of our Integrations in Company and Simple Stores, click here.
In regards to Shipping Updates, Simple Stores and Company Stores have impressive new characteristics. In our Bright Orders platform, you can enjoy Shipping Confirmation Emails and Order Confirmation Emails which notify the shopper on important details regarding their purchase. In Bright Sites, we have most notably introduced the new Box Packing Algorithm and Shipping Visualization feature. You can enjoy major improvements to box calculation and estimated shipping charges while also having fun with this game-like feature. Not only is this new Shipping Feature effective, it’s also just plain fun!
Last but not least, is our incredible Artificial Intelligence feature. Easily automate Simple Store design and product categories by letting the system know how generic or specific you want the categories to be. When you upload your company logo, store colors will automatically update based on it. This includes buttons, navigation bar, and footer. This feature is great for users who need to quickly design their Simple Stores. For an in depth look at all of our new features and integrations, check out our webinar here.
We are so lucky to be doing the work that we put our best efforts into every single day, but it wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful employees that make up our team. This year we were awarded two separate awards by PPAI. The first was the Rising Star Award given to our stellar Sales Account Manager, Connor! He is such a dedicated and important member of our team. Connor is constantly striving to help our client’s find the best solution, and could not be more deserving of this award. We were also awarded the 2021 PPB Magazine’s Best place to work! And we couldn’t agree more. The BrightStores family is so honored to receive this recognition and will continue to make our company welcoming to everyone!

With so many powerful new features and integrations, you may be wondering ‘What else can BrightStores possibly have left to do?’. Well, you might be surprised. 2022 already has so much in store, and we’ll give you an insider preview. Starting with an eagerly awaited surprise, Company Stores will be getting a complete refresh with a Brand New Storefront Theme! Our Design Team has been hard at work giving Company Stores a fresh coat of paint. All we can tell you right now, is that it’s going to be modern and dynamic. We can’t wait for you all to see it!
