Reviewing each and every line of text, going through the new tutorial videos time and again to ensure the accuracy of the voice-overs down to the milliseconds, prepping our servers to handle the influx of new users who will be flocking to us. These were some of the nerve-racking moments that went down in the wee hours of the morning of March 28th, 2013, one year ago today. By mid-day we had opened up the floodgates and, for the first time ever, colwiz was open to public sign-ups. A myriad of comments, praise, and constructive criticism came through our door, which our team welcomed with open arms, because it was at that moment when we knew we had created something truly special.

It’s been exactly 1 year since that happened. To celebrate this wonderful occasion, we prepared loads of improvements to accelerate your research even more. For starters, have you noticed anything different with our website today? If you haven’t, go check. We’ll wait…

Done? Welcome back! We hope you’ll agree that it looks much more simple and elegant. What’s more, this design approach isn’t just for the homepage: Without revealing too much, we can tell you that in the coming weeks you’ll see this approach translate into our Internal colwiz web, desktop, as well as mobile apps.

Of course, the changes you’ll experience wouldn’t have been possible without your continued feedback. We can’t stress enough how instrumental your comments have been to us in shaping the future of our platform. To everyone who hammered our support team with hard-hitting questions, concerns, and appreciation, we thank you and we hope you will continue to do so. We’ve come a long way from the rollercoaster affairs of the morning of our public launch a year ago and the future, from our viewpoint, looks great.
