We’ve decided its time for a facelift on uDrive and our company’s website.  You may have noticed if you’ve visited marlyngroupllc.com this week, that Phase 1 is now complete and our new company site is up and running!  We have been working on the re-design of this since last October and for those of you who have gone through this process, I’m sure you can relate to what we went through this past weekend when you make the switch to go live and cross your fingers that the new site will appear on your screen. The new design captures who we are and what we do as a company and if you visit the site, www.marlyngroupllc.com hopefully you will get to know us a bit better. The next big change we have been working on is a complete re-design of uDrive.  We are collaborating with a great development team out of Columbus, Ohio and they are moving along seamlessly on the new site and we expect to be live by June of this year.  The upgraded features and functionality will enable the uDrive user’s experience to be more productive and overall more enjoyable.  We came up with a long wish list that combines our uDrive nation’s feedback and our own observations on how to make the site more productive.  I’m happy to report that the majority of our list is going to become a reality very soon. When you enter the re-designed uDrive site you will immediately notice the modern, clean aesthetic that aligns with our new website (see above!).  The site itself has evolved significantly in functionality.  Instead of using the site to only access the libraries, it will become its own intranet for our subscribers and their organization.  The uDrive Administrator will have the ability to post announcements and communicate to other users within their company on their dashboard.  Most exciting of all, they will be able to save their updated and customized files on a secured uDrive so those people in their organization who have access can download the updated file directly from the site.  We are also adding new search capabilities that will enable uDrive customers to search the whole site to find documents associated with a specific subject. In keeping with our mission to simplify our subscriber’s life, now when you add users to uDrive it will automatically generate the username and password and email it to the new user.   We’ve also compiled all the extras we give our uDrive subscribers - whitepapers, analytical tools, webinars etc., and put them in the new Resource Center to easily access as the need arises.   We’re very excited about all the changes that we’ve made this year and that are still to come in 2014.  Thank you to all of our uDrive customers for the invaluable feedback and we are looking forward to enhancing your uDrive experience!
