JCC Digital Update

Posted by Todd Smith on August 5, 2016

Capping off our year-long celebration of the 120th year at the JCC, we are moving swiftly into the future with significant updates to our digital presence — the website.

In the next couple days, the homepage will have a new feel to it. Reflecting what members have told us matters most to them, we simplified both the desktop and mobile experience and made the Program Guide more visible. The goal: Make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.

In addition to simplifying the homepage layout, you will experience a much friendlier digital version of the Program Guide, whether you are on a desktop computer or mobile phone. Both versions now have internal links that make it easy to jump to sections.

To make the Program Guide readable on the tiny screen of mobile phones, we had to design it from scratch, using elements from the print version as a basis. Now you will be able to email, call or register for a class just by the touch of a finger. It makes for a nearly seamless experience.  Our Digital Associate, Justin DeCarlucci, adapted and labored through the myriad of details that go into every edition of the Program Guide.

We’re looking forward to your input and will follow up with a survey later in the season.

Lastly, for our online registration, Online Edge, we have made huge strides to improve the look, with the goal to more closely match our website and improve the user experience to sign up, sign in or register. This project has proven to be quite a challenge, but will be worth the effort. When these changes occur, you will be the first to know!
