We are extremely happy to announce that LoopLink® PRO, our new commercial design software is now available to the public. With the release of LoopLink PRO, we are planning on some significant changes and improvements to all of the other areas of our business and we wanted to take a minute to share with you what we have planned as we look forward to the year ahead.
Updating All Websites
In the near term, we will be rolling out an updated design for our company site, LoopLink® RLC and the GeoConnected blog. Each site will have its own distinctive look but there will be common elements that will make accessing information across all of our sites faster and easier. As part of the redesign, we will improve the mobile friendliness of all of our web properties.
LoopLink RLC Updates
We have never hid the fact that we are a small team. While that size provides us some of our greatest strengths, it also gets in the way of us taking on some of the projects that we really want to get done. With LoopLink® PRO up and running (like a giant geothermal bull of awesomenessitude), we will be turning our focus back to our flagship residential/light commercial program and working through some pretty major changes. Including:
New Look and Feel
We will clean up the existing design and make the site more responsive for mobile users. Many of the design cues will be pulled from the LoopLink® PRO interface so if you are curious where we are headed, you should check out the PRO interface.
Server Side Power Up
We will be making some critical changes to the parts you don’t see that will help us to improve the parts you do much more efficiently moving forward.
Payment System Upgrade
We will be making significant changes to our check out process that will force changes in account management and will affect current users’ automatic renewal schedule. We will contact all users prior to taking this step with details about what to expect and how you will be impacted.
Headloss & The Upgrades
There are a lot of users who have requested the inclusion of a head loss calculator into LoopLink® RLC. It will be added this year. In addition we have a few other upgrades and tweaks on our to-do list to tackle. We will determine the short list soon and fill you in on the details.
Our roots have always been in education. Over the past year, we have worked hard to expand and improve upon our online courses for geothermal professionals. With the help of our friends at HeatSpring we are proud to offer the following courses.
