NEWSCYCLE’s CirculationPro 2016-1 includes:

Activation Fee Functionality
The feature provides the ability to charge and collect a flat-rate fee on new subscriptions or restarts of inactive subscriptions, providing additional revenue opportunities.

Braintree Hosted Order Page Vendor
CirculationPro 2016-1 includes support for Braintree, a division of PayPal, as a credit card processing vendor. A redirected hosted order page in the Braintree system enables the NEWSCYCLE CirculationPro client to be out-of-scope for PCI compliance.

  • Ability to run across multiple publications
  • User-selected Reporting and Sort Order fields
  • Standard output options including a variety of PDF, CSV and TEXT formats, and delivery options
  • Save Report settings
  • Ability to run reports via Report Scheduler

Distributor Self-Service
Responsive and adaptive design allows users to manage the distribution process on any mobile device.

Undo Distributor Billing
This tool allows users to undo billing for specific batches and un-post all items associated with the most recent invoice. All related reports reflect any changes.

Enhanced Subscription Rates Interface
New functionality increases flexibility in subscription offers and provides simpler navigation to edit rates, sub-rates, terms and activation fees.

Task Manager
Users can schedule recurring tasks, including publishing, renewals and distribution billing. Workflow improvements enable tasks to be grouped and scheduled for a day of the week and time of day. A Same Day Occurrence field is included to limit the times per day a task can run.
