This is a well rounded Affino release in that there’s something for all Affino users. Beginners will have a lot less questions, as we’ve answered hundreds more by moving settings into context, simplified options, provided more meaningful help and added the new in-context Help Guides and Features. Shoppers will find the new optimised checkout to be simple, clear and fast; and store managers will find it is now much easier to set up and manage stores. Recruiters will love the new recruitment engine and all the updates we’ve done to smooth the entire recruitment process.
Startups will find raising project finance has gotten a lot easier with all the updates we’ve made to the Funding Platform. Designers will love the improved styling on the Design Elements. Marketers have improved tools for recommendations, campaigns and lead generation and better analytics and reporting. Community Mangers have the great new Member Profile DE for better personalisation, improved notifications and user management. Finally, Developers have access to the great new content and authentication APIs.
We’ve spent a lot of time setting up new Affino instances over the past couple of months to test specific use cases such as the new Funding Platform and Recruitment engines. This has highlighted a number of issues with creating and running multiple sites on a single Affino instance and we’ve resolved all the issues we came across. It means it’s now considerably easier to set up and run as many Affino sites as you want.
Affino’s quality level has been raised considerably in this release. We now have a great new Business Analyst / Project Manager / QA Pro in Catherine Phillips, who will be a key member of the team driving forward Affino’s excellence. She brings a lot of smarts, insight and attention to detail which will be reflected in Affino moving ahead. We’ve also developed a number of new regression tests and added more test instances to ensure we’re delivering the best Affino releases we can.
