“The Need, The Need for Speed”

Our goal with the new CaptainU College is simple: make it easy for college coaches to get through their work faster.

Design is one of the best ways to accomplish this. Good design is about more than making things look pretty. It’s about how things work. Is an app easy to learn? Is it easy to complete the tasks you do day in and day out? To that end, one of the main concepts behind the new CaptainU College is what we call Workflows: incredibly fast ways to do your work. Triage and Fast Email are two examples. They may seem subtle, but the benefits are huge over time.

Another way to make things faster is to throw raw, unadulterated horsepower at it. In this case, that means better, more modern servers. Last night, we switched out the CaptainU College engine and introduced new, state-of-the-art equipment. As a result, you’ll see a noticeable difference in how quickly pages load.

Workflows + Raw Power = Speed. Enjoy the time you’ll save!
