Then and now. A milestone in the journey that is GetSmarter.

Today we launched our new and improved website. #YesPlease!

The launch marks an important milestone in our journey. Three years ago, our marketing and IT competency comprised of a handful of people. We were young, ambitious, and full of potential. And we had just enough talent, at the time, to build a website that "did the job". Heck, I did the graphic design for the site!

Today, our marketing team consists of 35 people. Our Systems and Technology team consists of 10 people. We've been privileged to have incredibly talented individuals join our team. We now have specialist designers, specialist channel marketers, usability experts, front-end web specialists, back-end web specialists, web analysts, analytics specialists, infrastructure specialists, talented project managers, and incredible thought leaders in the disciplines of Technology and Marketing. And in contrast to three years ago, I had nothing to do with the development or launch of our new site. There are far more talented people than me doing this now.

Our new website signals a new era for GetSmarter - one built on the minds of our ever-expanding, incredibly talented team. I'm proud to be associated with this team, the team that will drive us towards our 10-year goal of having more impact than UNISA!

Onwards and upwards.

Here's our new site:

And here are two screenshots of "then", and "now".
