Information is power!

I think one of the most important things about VIP and Connected Apps is the ability it gives you to gather information about your users. That ’s enough and pretty valuable in itself, but then the ability to refine and improve this info and act on it is where it really comes into its own. I don’t think there’s anything out there that can offer this power to your business without having to invest a huge amount of time and money replicating what we’ve spent the last few years working on. We’ve built the tools for you to gain this valuable information - we hope you use them to their fullest potential as soon as they’re available to you.

Connecting with Connected

VIP uses Connected technology, developed by DropSwitch. It basically focusses on one aspect of the Connected technology and presents this service in a dedicated app. You can also create your own Connected App if you wish. This allows you to create a much more complex and dedicated Connected App and backend and offers all the features you enjoy in VIP. VIP data can be imported into a Connected App if you ever decide to move to or add this in the future.

Building in flexibility...

We’re busy at work getting VIP coded for you now. It’s a complex process with lots of going back and forth because one of the hardest things after you decide what you want to be able to do is to sue out how it all hangs together. How you can keep things as open ended as possible but ensure it’s still understandable too. Simplicity is important. It’s also important that everything is logical. It’s amazing how ‘simple’ things can be so hard to understand for some users, but really it’s just because it’s new to them whereas we’ve lived with it for months or even years. We’re constantly having to look at things with ‘new eyes’. It’s been exciting in recent weeks though, things have started to fall into place, find natural homes. The next stage is to show this to people who really will be seeing it for the first time and see what they make of it. Hopefully it all is simple… That’s what we’re aiming for.
