2016AfBlgMidwayReport700

It’s been a heavy duty year on the development front, particularly as regards the CRM component of the platform. When the CRM was first introduced several years ago, it was mostly used as an adjunct to existing CRMs and ERPs, but as many Clients have moved away from systems like Salesforce, Affino’s CRM has had to take on an ever greater central role. To a point where it will very soon offer the complete Media Company CRM Solution - including print planning and management, order ...

We’ve also launched the new responsive newsletter sign-up page which has been keenly awaited.

Affino 2013 Priorities Update

It’s the time of year where it’s good to review how far we’ve come with Affino’s development since we set out the 2013 Priorities. The big picture is that we’ve wrapped up one of the two biggest initiatives this year which was to re-architect Affino for super-scaling.

 

Performance

 

It took us half the year to get there, but we’re now seeing great up-time figures across the board for Affino’s SaaS services. There are still more ...

We are right in the middle of rolling out Responsive Design in Affino and this post outlines many of the key decisions we have made, and why.

 

When researching approaches to implementing Responsive Design in Affino, we have been looking at existing tools such as Adobe Reflow and Webflow.

 

They have taken two opposite lines of approach. Adobe Reflow allows you to manipulate everything to the nth degree but makes the process very manual. It displays a grid, but it’s ...

Responsive Design Image

We’re getting ready to move Affino to being fully responsive. This will be the major initiative over the coming months now that we have the auto-scaling cloud infrastructure in place.

Big Bang


There will be a switchover from the current way Affino page designs are created to a new responsive approach, like moving from analogue to digital.

We won’t have dual Design Centres in Affino at any point, it’s a one-off transition to the new Responsive Designs when you update to Affino...
