As new customers and some existing customers might have noticed, we have developed our new bespoke control panel system for Register365. For now it’s called UBER – feel free to suggest some alternative names while we brainstorm internally too!
There is always the argument of ‘build or buy’ in the technology industry – and after much debate 12 months ago, we decided to build. Over the years we have always tried to provide the best products to customers, and so we moved a number of times to enhanced platforms. While new customers get instant benefits from this, an unfortunate side-effect is that we built up legacy systems – which meant as a customer you may have more than one login, and more than one interface, to contend with. The holy-grail for any on-line services company, that provides more than one service on multiple platforms, is to provide an integrated, single-sign-on, user experience.
UBER is this system. For now it provides domain name management, accounts functionality, and login to shared hosting. The roadmap is to integrate the various legacy systems and all our current and future platforms, into this system – so that as a user, you will have a single application to both login to, and learn to use.
We’d love to hear your feedback on the control panel, as well as the strategy we have for it.
