New NOAH Compendium website launched to meet future demands
The NOAH compendium website www.noahcompendium.co.uk has changed as it enters a new era.
It has moved to a brand new web-based platform to improve usability and provide access for new applications.
“We know more people are accessing the site using mobile technology”, explains NOAH’s Office Manager Joanne Jeffs, “and in order that the site can be viewed more easily on mobile phones and tablets as well as traditional desktops, we needed to move the whole complex set of data to a new web platform.
“This is only one of the advantages of the move – it will enable us to finalise our Compendium app, for example, and further down the line will enable more bespoke information access to become available via an API* feed – and we needed to take this major step for progress to be made,” she says.
“The most important thing was to maintain the integrity of the data – prescribers and users of animal medicines rely on its accuracy to make their prescribing decisions and guide responsible use. We know this has been done.
“With the move, we know there are some post launch issues that we are addressing,” she went on to say. “We are working on those as quickly as we can. We know users need to print datasheets, for example and this function will soon be back online. We welcome all feedback and thank all our users for their patience.
“The invaluable online Compendium resource will become even more user-friendly and focussed for the needs of those who rely on it,” she said.
