What's happening at Webcredible

by Trenton Moss on 1 November 2010

October was a very exciting month for us as we launched our new logo. It’s been months in development and we’re really happy with it as we feel it’s much clearer and visually more representative of what we do as a company. Read myblog post about our rebrand for more on this.

As well as launching a new logo and brand this month, we had a few other launches:

Ecommerce report
Our 5th annual ecommerce report came out in October, with John Lewis coming top this year. They had a double-victory as they also came top of the charts for the 5 years combined, being the only company to be in the top-5 in each of the past 5 years. Last years winners, Marks & Spencer and WHSmith, dropped down to 3rd and 4th respectively. As usual the report picked up a lot of press coverage.
VoD report
At the start of the month we published another report, analysing 6 broadcaster Video on Demand websites against 10 best practice guidelines. Guidelines included a mixture of essential usability guidelines that apply to any website and those relevant to the key activities site visitors on a VoD website. The BBC iPlayer came top; Sky Player came bottom.
jQuery training
We ran our first jQuery course in October to a sold-out room of developers. The course went really well and we had some great feedback from participants. As with all our training, the jQuery training has a small class size, is highly interactive and is taught by experts.

As if all this wasn’t enough to keep us busy, we exhibited at Ecommerce Expo on 19 & 20 October. The show featured 140 exhibiting companies (including us) plus a comprehensive conference programme. As with all these shows it’s a lot of fun and absolutely exhausting – who’d have thought standing up for a day and talking to people could be such hard work!

Trade show fever seems to have gripped us at Webcredible as we’re also exhibiting at the mediaPro show. It was a really last minute decision to go but we thought we’d give it a go and head on down there. If you’re there then please do swing by stand 96 and say hi to us.

We also made a couple of announcements in October, the first one being that we’re recruiting a Head of Business Development. This is a senior role within the company whereby you’ll proactively generate and close new business leads, contributing significantly to the company growth. If this sounds good to you, or you know anyone that you think would be interested then let us know! CVs should be sent tojobs@webcredible.co.uk.

The second announcement we made this month was to launch our 15th training course, prototype with Axure training. The first Axure course will happen in the new year and we’ve already had a number of people sign up.

So, let’s hope that November isn’t as busy as October or I think I may have a meltdown! As usual, please also vote in our poll (it’ll take you just 5 seconds), this month asking when and how you’ll do most of your Christmas shopping.
