As well as the improvments to the interface and Dashboard we were able to update and improve some of the other core features. Subscribers can use the report builder as a kind of digital scrapbook to take elements of existing content and create their own bespoke reports, which they can then export and use in their own business.
We also added embedded videos and improved onscreen reading. We added sharing and commenting to the documents and made the whole app mobile and tablet friendly.
It was also clear that this Web App would be a perfect fit for Cloud Hosting. Having run for many years on a fixed server, the power of the cloud had evolved to offer the IAAS that was needed to evolve the application.
As part of the launch plan, we also transitioned the web app over to Amazon Web Services platform that was more powerful and offered a lower cost overall.
