Roundup of 2015 ProDemand Product Updates

Best of the Blogs

Taking a look in the rear view mirror, 2015 was a banner year for ProDemand enhancements. In particular, our development and editorial teams introduced many significant improvements to the navigation and data, delivering more features and content to our subscribers. The majority of these enhancements were in response to user feedback – we hear you and definitely appreciate your ideas and suggestions for improvement.

We highlighted the “bigger” enhancements here in the blog, but there were also many dozens of “micro” updates that individually and collectively contributed to improving the user experience.  Here’s a summary of the many major improvements to ProDemand that we talked about in the blog in the last year:
