Some recent enhancements in iMonnit you’ll notice right away. Other changes are more subtle. But before you look any further for each new improvement to iMonnit—our cloud-based sensor management and monitoring software—let us share a bit of what you can expect to see and use. We went behind the scenes of iMonnit with our Software Development Team.
“We’re excited to show our customers and have them experience the platform’s more responsive look and feel,” said Brandon Young, Monnit Data Architect of IoT Software Solutions. “Every page or screen is updated to eliminate irregularities, simplify navigation, boost consistency, and promote mobile usability.”
Under iMonnit’s hood, he says, his team swapped out several libraries for visual layout and responsiveness with newer versions. These new user interface (UI) libraries helped the team fine-tune many UI elements to create cleaner, more intuitive feature interaction.
Monnit Software Developer Coby Yates led the team’s efforts and drove the latest improvements to iMonnit. “Our software team made changes to more than 2,500 separate files,” Yates says. “The platform is now even easier to use, but we’ll continue to ensure iMonnit meets the evolving mobile and desktop needs of our customers. So keep an eye on iMonnit for even more updates in the coming months.”
Young says he’s most excited about the enhanced design and functional elements that many people may not even notice. “These are the things that we’ve streamlined or corrected. They’re now how they should be. When things are how they should be, often we don’t notice them. But they’re highly valuable features to the overall experience of the software.”
Here are some of the changes you may notice the next time you log into iMonnit.
