SmartCART Update- User Interface Change

SmartCART LogoCWRU has been using the SmartCART online shopping platform for over three years now. This successful tool sees over 900 unique users a month, and has had almost $5 million in spend already in FY14. As SmartCART continues to grow and evolve, the time has come for the User Interface to be updated. This change, dubbed Phoenix, is currently available to all SmartCART users as an optional view. This streamlined and updated toolbar view, will be the only option for viewing SmartCART effective January 2014. In addition, this change will enhance the user experience on tablets and mobile devices. In preparation of this change, please review the screen shots below. You will see how to go into your settings and implement the updated interface. You may choose to toggle back and forth between the two modes while you get acclimated to the updates. Our office is recommending that by Monday December 2, only the new Phoenix interface is used, to prepare for January 2014, when that will be the only interface available. We will be offering a couple of townhall sessions next week to demonstrate the new interface and how to change your individual view Tues. Nov. 19th and Thurs. Nov. 21 both at the Ford Auditorium in the Allen Library starting at 1:30pm. Any questions? Please contact
