Product & Development Updates


Responsive Platform, Bugs, SSL & More!

Both the product and development departments have no trouble staying busy. They began a phased rollout of our responsive page builder tools to self serve clients on September 25th. This is a major milestone for SmartEtailing to release the tools for clients to use. Another big part of developing any software is finding and fixing bugs. We continually manage these and release fixes in 2 week cycles. 

Another major initiative of these teams is full site SSL for all SmartEtailing websites. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. Stay tuned for more info on this process. The transition will require a simple action from each SmartEtailing client to okay an email for an SSL certification. 

Lastly the product and development teams are in an ongoing process of fully implementing best practices from the proven Agile software development framework. This includes process changes and additional training. Our team continues to grow and develop. Expect to see even more exciting innovations coming from SmartEtailing moving forward.
