FranConnect Sky: Orion, latest release of leading franchise management software

Written by Mike Morper

Franchise management software FranConnect Sky: Orion released December 2016.

The latest version of FranConnect’s SaaS franchise management software, FranConnect Sky: Orion, was released late December 2016 with over 130 new features. The new features include business critical application updates like batch data imports, mobile capabilities, SMS ability, and important integrations like for Quickbooks Online from Intuit.

Before we launch into the features, we want to make sure you know we’re not talking about the stars in the sky when we refer to the Orion release. Each release of FranConnect Sky has a name. The names allow us – FranConnect and our customers – to keep track of what features were added and updated when, and it is an easy way to make sure you are using the latest and greatest version of your franchise management software. The first release of FranConnect Sky in early 2016 was Sunrise, followed by North Star and Milky Way. Because this release has so many new features, we named it Orion, like the powerful hunter in the night sky.

Now that we’re on the same page, here are some of the features that will help you unleash the power of FranConnect Sky: Orion.

Batch Imports – Apply mass data updates to your franchisee records in Info Manager by importing a spreadsheet using the new batch update importer.

New mobile app – Access your FranConnect Sky system any time from your mobile device using the brand new mobile app for iOS and Android.
