Sneak Peek of Filr’s Revamped Web Client

Sneak Peek of Filr’s Revamped Web Client

Filr is all set to get more leaner, meaner, and beautiful!

Leaner and meaner as we are upgrading and optimizing almost all of Filr's framework including Operating System, Web servers, Search engine, Database...

Beautiful, as we are revamping the Filr Web Client!

Why are we doing so?

As you may know - Filr has been a fantastic product which offers true enterprise sync and share which can help modernize all of your existing storage without needing to move the data and take security risks.

Based on the changing times where enterprise users are demanding easy to use products from IT - we decided to revamp the web client in the upcoming release of Filr (version 4.0).

The work for this started around ten months back and this is how it unfolded:

  1. We decided to bring in specialists (not developers) to design the new user interface

  2. We employed the services of the usability team who specialize in designing user interfacing keeping user's experience in mind

  3. The usability team interviewed tons of Filr users from different industries, regions, roles, and use cases to understand the current needs and pains

  4. Then they came up with the draft design screens

  5. The draft designs were passed on to beta testers for feedback based on which the designs were refined

  6. Developers started building the new client using the refined design

  7. The interface was refined further based on feedback from our testers

Here are screenshots of some of the portions of new web client:

Really looking forward to this. I'm excited to here how much thought and effort has gone into the design.

Are we going to be getting new mobile clients too?
Thanks Matt!

After we complete the web client revamp - we will start the work to redesign mobile clients.
