Port 1: New Logo - This is always an exciting topic and it’s a great opportunity for Vivit to re-express itself. Our current logo/colors have been around for several years and while they are very recognizable, we feel it’s time for a new look and feel. We haven’t landed on a final logo yet but we’ve gone through a few iterations and edits and it’s going to be expressive, bold, informative, and stylish.
Port 2: Website Rebrand - You may have noticed our website layout is a bit dated as well. We’ve contracted with our website host to come up with a sleek website design that is modern, responsive, and mobile friendly. The colors will match our new logo color scheme so we can put the pinkish-purple and orange colors to rest. We know it can be challenging at times to find information on our site so we’ll make sure it targets what our Vivit members need the most. And you’ll be able to access it on a smartphone browser without needing a microscope!
Port 3: Newsletter Format Update - We’re proud of the content and information that we bring you each month with the Vivit InForum Newsletter. We’ll still provide great articles and Vivit updates but in a format that is easier to skim through and grab just what you need. It will be bold, attractive, and eye catching - maybe even suitable for framing!
Port 4: New Webinar Platform - We’re currently researching new webinar platforms to provide a richer experience for our sponsored and SIG webinars. We’re looking for a platform that provides more options to keep the audience engaged and works well with our website registration system so Vivit members won’t have to fill out all those fields every time they register for a webinar. We’re also focusing in on platforms that don’t require proprietary installs that might be blocked at your workplace. You’ll be able to sign up easier and attend more webinars than ever before - and we’ll have many more great ones to look forward to!
Back Home Again - Which brings us back to our original port of call. It was shorter than a 3 hour tour but hopefully you found something enjoyable to look forward to. We’re working hard to implement these changes by the end of this year so you won’t have to wait too long. If it seems like a lot of changes and you’re concerned we’re changing Vivit too much - not to worry! We’ll still be Vivit and we’ll still be your Independent HPE Software User Community. Our commitment to you as a Vivit member and HPE software customer will not waver or change in the least. But we do hope you find us easier to use, more helpful than before, and beneficial to you in every way that we can be.
P.S. If you haven’t taken the Vivit Member survey yet, now would be a great time to do so. It’s very short (only 10 multiple choice questions) and you could win a pair of Bose wireless headphones – which will come in very handy on your next cruise! We value your feedback!
On behalf of everyone at Vivit, thanks and happy cruising!
