Affino 7.5.14 Release - Events Evolution

This release could also be called the ‘I love it when a plan comes together’ release. It’s the first of three significant event related releases coming out over the coming months, and although there are some great individual improvements around events, directories, CRM, account management and ecommerce, the big wins are all around the greatly improved event workflows and automation that is now possible.

 

Core to the event improvements are the new Advanced Events (the

Ramp up your Innovation in 2017 with The Affino Unified Digital Business Platform

Uncertain times lie ahead as the whole global marketplace enters into a period of significant change. We have no way of knowing what will happen longer term, but in the short run - supply prices will rise and inflation will creep up - as is already happening.

So much ground was covered in 2016 that it is very hard to pick a top 10, so we’ll give you the big picture highlighting the many key developments. The primary goal of 2016 was to transform Affino’s CRM capabilities and that was met with hundreds of improvements throughout the Affino CRM. For details on the

Affino Channel Types - the Responsive Roadmap

Affino has multiple Channel Types as the foundation for how you set up and manage your Affino sites. In many cases each Channel type is an entire application suite provided by competing solutions. It’s only in Affino that these are all brought together and can be managed seamlessly.

 

We have spent the past five years working through the process of migrating these all to responsive, which has been a very significant undertaking. This year is when we complete the migration with the

Core vs Enhancement vs Custom vs Integration

This is the essential 4-part nature of how sites are developed and delivered in Affino. As with all projects, these are governed by the laws of the PQT triangle, with Cost and Time being the two most significant variables. I hereby lay down the why’s and wherefore’s of how the different distinctions are applied, and why we work in the way we do.
