Ever since we launched sumHR back in 2012, we’ve always heard praise from our users about how our interface is much simpler and easier than any other HR software they’ve used before. We valued this quality of our product a lot and strived hard to keep it that way. However, as our product is growing bigger and more comprehensive, it has been difficult to maintain the simplicity in the existing design layouts.
So, two months ago we decided to start working on a completely new look, new layout, new navigation and a radical new experience for our customers. Everyone here at sumHR is very excited about this new project and we’re hoping that you love this new avatar too.
Some key focus areas while creating the new UI:
1. A layout which allows future scalability, because gradually sumHR will have more and more modules like HR Letters, Performance Appraisals, Recruitment etc.
2. Reduction of the number of clicks required to complete an action.
3. Enhancing the overall visual appeal of the product, make a pleasing look-and-feel.
4. Most importantly, bring considerable improvements to the product performance levels such as loading time, data displaying speed, etc.
Here are a few mock screenshots to give you a “sneak preview” into sumHR’s new look:
