TechAmerica needed an easy way for users to find the member companies in the TechAmerica Member Directory. With thousands of records and hundreds of fields per record, it got a little daunting.
A search app is an easy enough thing to build but the tricky part was designing the user interface. It had to have a simple text search but also an advanced search with multiple options. And they wanted to put about 50 diff options into the advanced search… ugh. But after some analysis, we narrowed the options down to the most important and most used.
I also added a feature where the app remembers the last 5 search criteria and results. So users could compare results quicker and easier.
The new app not only makes it easier to search the directory but also works faster and is more organized.
