A lot of things happen under the hood when modernizing software. As the saying goes, we aren't always privy to how the sausage is made. But when it comes to UI, everything's above the fold, making it one of the most important expressions of a platform's evolution.
Yesterday, Agility – a headless CMS that positions itself as the premium content platform – announced the completion of a comprehensive design system refresh in its new user interface. The company is "putting the finishing touches" on its new UI, and plans to have it fully running on June 30th. Until then, the classic UI will be available to current users.
According to the company's press release, Agility's design, product, and customer success teams spent the last three months listening to customer feedback and implementing improvements to elevate the design and accessibility of its platform UI.
"The design system refresh in our new UI is a reflection of our dedication to listening to our customers' needs,” said Joel Varty, CTO of Agility, emphasizing the company's commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions.
Agility's design system refresh is more than just a visual upgrade – it introduces a number of new features and enhancements aimed at empowering users with increased efficiency and an upgraded user experience. This comes a few weeks before the new UI will have full feature parity and become the default within the platform.
"The implementation of these new features is a direct response to our customers' needs," said Jina Zohori, Head of Customer Experience at Agility. "Our goal was to improve the overall accessibility and usability of the UI design system, and we are confident that the enhancements we've made will have a significant positive impact on our users' workflows."
Here are some of the highlights users can expect from the new UI:
According to the company's press release, Agility remains committed to continuously enhancing its product offerings based on user feedback and evolving market demands. The UI refresh is a testament to Agility's dedication to delivering exceptional user experiences and ensuring maximum accessibility for all users.
