Recently, there’s been only one event dominating conversation in the BIVDA office. No, not the Royal Wedding, but the launch of the new BIVDA website!
After weeks of blood, sweat and tears (quite literally in some cases!), we are proud to launch our new website (and new domain) www.bivda.org.uk.
The full story of how we came to develop the new website can be found in the May edition of our magazine for members vIViD (hitting doormats any day now!) but in a nutshell, it is thanks to you, our members.
The responses to our 2017 Members’ Survey made it clear that there are many things BIVDA does well, but that the existing website was no longer meeting your needs. With the pace of technological change and the last website refresh taking place over five years ago, this news didn’t come as a surprise.
BIVDA prides itself on being the voice of the IVD industry but we can only do this if we listen to our members. So we’ve questioned, listened and analysed your feedback and as a result, we feel we have a website that will be a useful resource not just for our members, but for healthcare professionals, the public and our stakeholders.
As you explore the new website, we hope you will enjoy the new layout and features. For members, you will now be able to see the availability of our meeting rooms online and have access to a brand new, and hopefully more intuitive to use, Members’ Area.
For those visitors who aren’t members but are keen to find out more about the IVD industry, the new design should help them to find what they are looking for, quickly and efficiently, while providing lots of useful information on the value of IVDs.
The project has certainly been a labour of love but we are all very proud of the finished result and hope you are too!
