Our latest development is progressing well, our developers indicate that they are over 50% through the work which is great news. I’ve had an initial look at the early work and I’m genuinely thrilled by the output so far. Far too many highlights to mention, but as we get closer to launch and I get familiar with their workings I’ll review the major ones.
We should also be getting a feel for the new design of the site in the next week or so. With so many new features, especially on the results page, we’ll no doubt be having a major upheaval in the results department – what that looks like, I have no idea. We’re using the eponymous design company called Mark Boulton Design (Mark has recently published ‘A practical guide to designing for the web‘). So far it’s been a rewarding experience and it’s refreshing to use a dedicated design service.
Finally, one ‘stand out’ joy of the re-design has been the new relationships we’ve been building. We’ve reached out to a significant number of new content providers ranging from medical news to medical videos (all aimed at clinicians) and they have all responded favorably to contact. Talking with other clinical web enthusiasts from similar size companies (and some larger ones) has been a real bonus and we’ve learnt so much. The bottom line being that building relationships make us (at TRIP) stronger.
