The Development Of YourPCM v2 Starting Soon!

CREATED BY THE THE ONE, THE ONLY, STEFFI LEWIS
Published: 30/06/2024 @ 13:25PM

YourPCM was created during the pandemic and has been in development ever since. By adding in the discovery tools and the mailing list system, I turned it from a simple contact manager into something very special ...

The Development Of YourPCM v2 Starts Today!

Your PCM, so true, A constant companion, dear, Helping me stay on track

But like all software, it needs to be regularly updated. For the last part of 2023, I was working on YourAI which was my stepping stone to sBlogIt! which I launched at the start of June 2024. I spent a lot of time working on UX design and the improvements I added to YourAI and refined in sBlogIt! will soon be found in YourPCM too.

It's going to be an evolution; faster, better looking and it'll work on mobile too!

So the first stage of the YourPCM upgrade is to get the framework created. The idea is to take all the best parts of sBlogIt! and add them into YourPCM. Custom widths, colours, logos, banner headings ... all sorts of things will be possible with the new framework.

I used a lot of popup settings windows in the original version of YourPCM which aren't always compatible with browsers so this will be changed to a settings tab and I'll use a lightbox to display sub-pages when necessary.

And once the framework is in place?

Well, it's then time to get on with the main coding, and the biggest part of this is to speed it up! When I was developing YourPCM originally, I used select statements that grabbed all the columns in a contact's record before displaying just a few columns. This time around, I'll only be selecting what I need.

There'll be a switch added to the old YourPCM to change it to the new version (and visa versa) as the features become available. Obviously, lower subscriptions will get it first so watch this space.

I'm still churning the ideas in my mind, but I certainly can get the framework in place and ready to go. I'm very much looking forward to letting the coder girl out to play again.

It'll probably be the start of August.


Until next time ...

About me ...

I'm a 31-year veteran web developer, who published one of the first 1,000 websites in the entire world when I worked at The Open University way back in 1993. Since then I've been involved with projects big and small, funded and unfunded, corporate and commercial. I was part of the dot com boom and contracted in California in the mid-2000s.

On my return to the UK circa 2011, I started work on my digital marketing platform SLO Media, and have run that successfully for over a decade. During the pandemic, when we were all bored out of our skulls, I created YourPCM, a CRM designed exclusively for UK small business owners (sorry rest of the world), then built YourAI as my artificial intelligence playground (yay for the whole world!). Although it was only ever meant to be a new module for YourPCm, I made it available commercially when a number of my friends and networking buddies saw it and demanded access to this handy set of handy content creation tools.

And now we have sBlogIt! which is a more focused version of the blogging part of YourAI with enhancements up the wazoo and the ability to create and publish an entire blog post in just a few minutes using a low-cost token-based system.

If you want to know more about all that, you can visit sblogit.com and sign up for free. We'll even give you 25 tokens to get you started, so no excuses, ok?

My head is in The Cloud, my heart belongs to The Web, and my soul is filled with such beautiful code 💗

And so here we are ...
