One of the most challenging tasks when building technology is meeting both the technical requirements of your audience and providing a positive user experience. Apple has built an empire on doing this well.

Ask any loyal customer what they like about the product and words like sleek, intuitive and easy to use will frequently tumble out of their mouth. Yes, there must be impressive technology to back this front-end experience, but the main thing that we’ve learned from Apple is that ease of use is a key contributor to the adoption rate of technology.

[Newsletter] - APEXA October 2016

Nov 4, 2016 12:00:00 PM / by Tonya Blackmore posted in Newsletter


Throughout my career there’s been one thing that’s been constant: change. Every 18-24 months like clockwork my role has changed. Sometimes by choice when I seeked out a new role and sometimes imposed through organizational change. Here’s my little secret. I absolutely loved it! Change is a breath of fresh air to me.

Similarly, I remember feeling as though time completely stopped right before turning sixteen, counting down the days until I could finally get my driver’s licence.

Even though I’m years away from September representing the start of a new school year, I can’t help but feel the shift that occurs when the labour day weekend rolls around.

Spring has sprung! Or not. Regardless of what Mother Nature has in store for us we are forging forward towards our final sprint before launch.  And let me tell you the wait has been worth it.  We’ve added more robust functions to APEXA to streamline processes and ease the usability and we can’t wait to show you what industry collaboration and engagement can do.

Starting in March and continuing in April we have also launched an Advisor series to provide sneak peeks of the system and get feedback from Advisors as we ramp up for launch. 

It’s not just the hope of sunshine around the corner that is boosting our excitement at APEXA. We’re looking forward to finally being able to show you what we’ve been working on and then to let APEXA speak for itself.
