ArmyNET is having an overhaul and will launch a refreshed and updated site on Tue 29 Apr 08.
The new-look site will feature a complete overhaul of the home page, with a totally updated design. The home page has also been de-cluttered to make it easier to get to information directly. And the changes are not just skin-deep; each user now has the ability to customise their homepage, so that it shows the elements that they wish to see. Similar to leading edge web services, ArmyNET offers the ability to "drag" these elements into place as desired making for a significantly enhanced user experience.
Beyond the home page, the main subject pages have been reformatted to ensure that they are well laid out and easy to navigate, and the email service has been greatly enhanced. While it still offers the ability to send emails with commercial grade encryption, it is now easier to manage groups for wide distribution emails, and allows searching of the global database of ArmyNET users.
ArmyNET realises that the Army community is far greater than those that are currently serving and with this release will make it possible for ex-service personnel to gain entry to the site. This will be achieved by allowing associations to manage entry into ArmyNET for its members, therefore maintaining those important links between the previous and current generation of soldiers.
To celebrate the launch, we are giving away an ipod nano every day between now and launch day. Get over to ArmyNET to find out how to win.
