Important Changes To REC Admin & REC+ Launch

Added 1 month, 2 weeks ago.

We are pleased to release two major new changes to the REC platform:  the rollout of the new Admin Console design to all REC users worldwide and the introduction of REC+.

 

This will come into effect on Wednesday 19th October 2016.

 

 

New Admin Console Re-design Now Live

 

Last week we previewed the admin console re-design which follows Google Material Design guidelines and this is now being rolled out to all REC sites worldwide. We will be closely monitoring feedback to the new graphical user interface and using this to shape future improvements so please let us have your views! Click here to see the previous post on the Admin Re-design.

 

REC+ Is Now Available

 

We are pleased to introduce REC+, our latest software product offering many advanced features typically only found in specialist software or enterprise versions of competitor products. REC+ has everything that's available in REC and works in the same tried-and-tested way with which you are familiar, making it a seamless transition.

 

And it's free to upgrade! We are making many of the new features totally free to REC users as a thank you for being loyal users of our software. So your charges will stay the same unless you opt to use the paid features. Follow our instructions to implement the new features on your site or let our team do it for you (charges apply).

 

To upgrade... Simply click the "Upgrade To REC+" link in the new Admin Console to automatically move to the new version at no extra charge. Please note that we will continue to support and maintain REC sites who do not wish to upgrade at this time.
