DNN Software Test Drives
The Test Drives were just an idea before I started at DNN Software. I helped bring them to life through research and prototyping based on feedback from user testing. The Test Drives are currently used as a sales and marketing tool to educate current clients and to help sell DNN's CMS software. The Test Drives also act as prototypes that are used to influence the design and interactions of upcoming features.
As a Product Engineer, it was my job to take a story from within the product and turn it into a interactive website that could easily be shared and viewed. I researched technology, executed code and edited imagery to bring it all together. Cross platform and cross device testing ensured a consistent experience for all 30+ Drives.
The sales team needed a quick way to send clients interactive demos of the product. And the development team needed an attractive and consistent website animations.
A series of interactive websites that are easily shareable and show a useful new feature in action.
With over 30 Test Drives it was important to keep a high level of consistency. Design patterns were established and development standards were put in place to maintain consistency. I worked with another developer to expand on this process to make the Test Drives more efficient to development and maintain.
Keeping development time down to a minimum was essential because we wanted the sales team to have a library of useful features to choose from to demo their clients. One of the ways I increased development efficiency was to create a blank Test Drive template that allowed me to rapidly create new Test Drives from.
