Any of you familiar with the previous versions of Pages can see we have completely overhauled the User Interface (UI). We have gone for a cleaner, simpler look with a strong emphasis on guiding the user through the key purpose of Pages; namely the process of searching, selecting suppliers and sending enquiries. We have also incorporated new features, such as tabs, that allow for easier navigation between key areas. Other enhancements include:
Try entering three or more characters into the ‘located in’ text box (such as “sing”) and you will see that it immediately suggests port and country names that begin with those letters. This not only saves you time, but also directs you to existing categorizations which enables us to better match you to the right suppliers. We will be adding this feature to the ‘search for’ in the next release, which will autocomplete brands and category names.
Once you get back a list of suppliers, we’ve made it easier for you to quickly check specific suppliers’ details. Clicking on the ‘More’ button on a supplier’s summary show more detail on each supplier (see below right).
This means that you can work through a list of suppliers and make selections for enquiry without having to leave the search results page. You can see an example of a full Micro-profile below. Please note Micro-profiles are limited to Premium Listers only.
Finally its important to us to understand how people are using Pages. So we’ve incorporated a new feedback featureaccessible by the blue Feedback tab on the right hand side of every Pages web page. This allows you to suggest enhancements or report bugs. Plus you can also vote on other people’s suggestions, letting us understand how popular requests are. We’re committed to making our product better so please give us your feedback!
