“Purchasing and acquiring new items can have a lot of variables that can get tricky,” said Mike Dicus, Sierra Senior Product Owner. “I’m happy that our customers have identified ways to improve their acquisitions and serials workflows to make that part of Sierra that much easier.”

Remember, submissions live on in Idea Lab and our Always Open Space never closes. If you submitted an enhancement that is still important to you or you’ve just discovered a development opportunity, the Always Open space provides a place to post that idea for any Sierra product.
