Product Update: May 2020

       Here's all the latest Beacon product news brought to you from the living rooms of Beacon's engineering team.

       New Beacon Apps System

We've completely overhauled the Beacon Apps system.  What does this mean for you? Well, it means that Beacon's framework for building integrations is now more sophisticated and more scalable.  This means that we can ramp up the speed at which we ship new integrations, and that's exactly what we've been working on this month.

       JustGiving Integration


With Beacon's JustGiving integration you can now import donations, fundraisers, and events directly from JustGiving into your Beacon database.

You can read more about how this works in this blog post.

       Xero Integration


With Beacon's Xero integration you can now send and manage invoices directly from your Beacon database.

You can read more in this blog post.

       Updates to Mailchimp Integration

Constant Contact, Campaign Monitor, Shopify, Zoom, Aircall, Slack, Google Calendar, Goodbox, Asana, Microsoft 365, Charity Checkout, and Donr.

You can read a summary of what we're going to be working on in 2020 in this blog post.  Next month we'll be internationalising our donation forms and mapping, making some major updates to Beacon Workflows, and continuing to work on integrations.
