From being able to lock your payroll to creating new lots in real-time and the ability to send CSV reports to multiple email addresses… there’s something for everyone, so let’s get to it!


First, let’s take a look at what’s new with the Hectre Orchard Management App (for Spectre enhancements, please scroll further down).

New Orchard Management Enhancements

Payroll Locking

Hectre is about to make managing your payroll even easier! In the next two weeks, the latest enhancement to the Payroll module will be released. The enhancement will allow for completed pay runs to be locked to prevent any further updates. This new feature gives you an extra layer of security and ensures that Hectre’s data matches your pay run for auditing purposes.


Customers will be able to lock and unlock pay runs directly from the Web Dashboard Payroll page, provided they have the necessary access permission. The enhancement is yet another way that Hectre is helping customers improve efficiency and streamline processes.

New Spectre Enhancements

Enhanced Size And Color Sorting

Spectre Dashboard. Released: April 4


Now, when viewing Spectre results, you’ll notice that color and size results can be sorted by descending percentages making it easier to identify the size or color value with the highest percentage.

Send CSV Reports To Multiple Receivers



Spectre customers can now easily send a CSV report to multiple receivers with different email addresses all at once. This enhancement will streamline the process for customers who need to share reports with multiple recipients. It’s just another way that Hectre is speeding up the process and making things simpler!


Select the Fruit Type As Well As the Variety


iPhone/iPad/Spectre Top Down


Also released this week, both Spectre Hand Held and Top Down customers are now able to select the fruit type as well as the variety when creating Spectre groups. This enhancement means it is even easier for customers with more than one fruit type to create Spectre groups and ensure they are created for the correct fruit type.

Create New Lots In Real-Time During The Group Creation Process

Spectre Top Down


Spectre Top Down customers can now create new lots in real-time during the group creation process. This new enhancement means that if a new lot appears that was not included during product onboarding, customers can easily scan in the truck or group without any worries. The enhancement ensures an even faster and smoother Spectre Top-Down experience for customers.

Create New Color Parameters

Spectre Top Down


Another enhancement for Spectre Top Down customers, you can now create new color parameters, so that if a new color parameter appears that was not included during product onboarding, you can use images extracted from Spectre Top Down videos to create the new color parameter.

That’s a wrap… for now! More fab features and enhancements coming your way soon!
