Since mid-2020, Blocworx has been working on a complete application redesign. We are super excited to announce that your favourite Blocworx interface is getting a shiny new look and wanted to share some screenshots with you today during this sneak peak. We expect the design that is shown below to be released to clients in stages late Q4 of 2020.
Blocworx new design uses ReactJS, as its front-end framework, to deliver an interface that is ultra-fresh and modern. The spirit of the new design is to deliver an easy interface to quickly work with many of the latest features that Blocworx has already delivered to clients and of which more are in development. Clients will be able to notice improvements in speed and usability. As always, we welcome your feedback and critique.
The new UI is a game-changer for Blocworx because, for the first time in almost 4 years, the front-end is being reimagined. The front-end redesign team consists of our front-end lead, front-end developers, back-end developer, QA engineer, project manager, and a product lead who are all working full time to complete this project as soon as possible. Blocworx heavy investment of time and company resources will result in the delivery of a state-of-the-art system with a powerful back end and front-end tech stack.
The first change you might notice is the refresh of our login screen and preview icons. We worked on updating the look and feel of the system with a new font and styles. These new styles are not only pleasing but are designed to make it easier and more efficient to navigate the system.
Clients can expect to see most of the current navigation bar stay in the same order but a new visually enhanced icon set will make the screen much more visible and easier to navigate. Most of the elements Switch Skin, Support, Alerts, Admin and Manage Data have not changed locations. However, these pages will become faster and come along with updates to the user experience and ease of use. We’ve reimagined navigation, added a new icon set, improved our chart UI, and added more filtering options.
We hope that you enjoy this exciting preview!
