Release Notes | July 27, 2020

  • We’ve made some design adjustments to enhance the customer shopping experience
    • We noticed the text color for the new NISMO site’s search bar had visibility issues and has now been changed to white.
    • We noticed our new NISMO site was displaying a black background color on unintended parts of the site, causing text readability issues. This has been fixed and all pages have the correct background and text colors. 
    • The Show More option on Audi banners also had visibility issues with black text on a black background. The text has been changed to a readable color.
    • There was an issue where Accessories subcategory tile text and pictures on Volkswagen Tier 3 and B2B sites were configured in a way that caused the text to be difficult to read. The picture size and text placement were changed to create optimal user experience. 
    • Volkswagen Canada’s Tier 3 Navigation bars have been updated to adopt the same styling as the Navigation bars on Volkswagen’s US sites.
  • We noticed the images on Toyota’s Tier 1 and Tier 3 “Related Products” feature were not appearing to the right dimensions especially in comparison to the space around it and the accompanying text. We adjusted the image sizes to fit accordingly. 
  • Nissan and INFINITI have added a new Blog feature on their Tier 1 sites. There is now a new “Blog” link on their headers that can be accessed to a page with helpful blog content that will be periodically updated. 
  • When Dealers issue either a partial or full refund, customers will now receive an automated email with the corresponding information, creating a more efficient dealer-to-customer communication process. There is also an editing feature available for Dealers to tailor this email to their purposes. 
  • Mobile sites were experiencing an issue, especially when interacting with the cart widget, creating a horizontal scrolling ability. This was fixed to only allow for vertical scrolling for an enhanced UX mobile experience. 
  • Our Guided Navigation has been improved with a new “Continue Shopping” feature that showcases additional recommended products tailored to the existing items in a cart. This gives customers easier access to more products and a more efficient shopping experience. 
  • Guided Navigation for the Accessories experience has been modified in order to improve a customer’s ability to input and modify fitment information in the most user-friendly way possible.
