Aider’s Proactive Notifications are useful truths uncovered as Aider gets to know your business. Aider will proactively send you a text to keep you in-the-know. Examples include comparisons between returning and new customers or notifications about employees who habitually work overtime.Our Data Science team is always working on a new “Did You Knows?” based on customer feedback and research.Here are our most recent additions:
Once you have connected your Payments data (e.g. Paymark Insights) Aider will give you some insight into your customer loyalty over the last seven days. Here, Aider calculates what proportion of electronic payments can be attributed to your returning customers, along with the average transaction value being dollar sales divided by the number of transactions. Aider lets you know which of the two groups, new vs. return, spends more in your business on average.Below is an example of a proactive text from Aider.
If you connect Aider to your Rostering data (e.g. Deputy), Aider will send you proactive notifications about your employee's habitual behaviours. In this example, Aider looks to see if an employee worked more than half an hour over their scheduled hours yesterday – if that employee has worked overtime before, within the last two weeks, Aider sends you a text to let you know and calculates how many times they have worked overtime.Below is an example of a proactive text from Aider:
Our team and customers work hard to continuously train Aider. Here’s some new questions you can ask if you have connected your rostering, accounting or point of sale apps to Aider.

If you have Aider connecting to your rostering app (e.g. Deputy) you will now be able to ask the following questions:
Time PeriodsUsers can now more effectively query specific time periods for sales, eg. "How many sales between 9 am and 3pm"Multiple POS apps connectedIf Aider users have multiple POS apps connected, i.e. Kounta and Shopify, they need to specify the app they are querying in the question eg. "What was my revenue last week in Shopify?" to get app specific answers. Otherwise, Aider will default to the app it deems primary.UnitsUsers can now put units within questions when asking about a particular product’s sales e.g. "how many bottles/plates/units of a product have I sold today".
Year over year comparisonsUsers are now able to compare sales and income for a date-period to the same period last year (Requires at least a year of data), eg. "How's my business tracking compared to last year?"
Google Analytics questions were not displaying answers in the iOS app, this has now been fixed.Your feedback is important and helps us make Aider the best possible solution. Please let us know what improvements or additions you would like to see at firstname.lastname@example.org
