IRM HQi 4.2

As part of our ongoing commitment to developing HQi, the support system which runs IRM’s client websites, we are delighted to announce that we’ve just rolled out an update that offers great new functionality and versatility for clients – IRM HQi 4.2.

Some of the changes and enhancements you can expect to see include:

Careers Module

At the request of clients, we’ve informally been developing Careers sections for websites for many years. Over the past couple of months, however, we’ve received an increase in the number of requests for functions that would allow companies to advertise current vacancies through their corporate websites.

IRM is pleased to introduce a new Careers Module that now makes it even easier for clients to list, upload, duplicate and share vacancies, and accept applications from job seekers.

With advanced search capabilities, the feature also makes filtering through job opportunities very simple. A job application function has also been incorporated, making it easy for candidates to apply for jobs through your site.

Features include:

  • Simple user-friendly, interface for uploading job listings
  • Ability to edit, hide, duplicate and manage listings
  • Ability to add PDFs or link to alternate hyperlinks to more information
  • Listings are automatically removed from the website after application expiry date (set by you)
  • Visitors can filter opportunities by Location and Career Field (eg. Marketing, Sales, Engineering etc)
  • Customisable online application form with the ability to upload a Cover Letter and CV

Example:
Independence Group are currently using the Careers Module on their site to advertise their available positions to visitors.

To view the careers section, click here or ask your Account Manager for a demonstration.

Showcase Module – (Currently called “Location Finder”)

This new feature is a showcase module that essentially lets you showcase any assets of importance to your business. This module gives you the capability to showcase things like branches, properties, projects, clients and more, and can be displayed on your website as list and/or an interactive map.

Each showcase item also has its own page with customisable fields and the ability to upload images to provide further information on the items that you are showcasing.

Features include:

  • An interactive map to showcase your assets
  • The ability to filter by location, with list pages for easy search
  • A simple and effective upload process, which allows you to easily add new assets
  • The capability to tailor the information displayed with customisable detail fields
  • Customisable look and feel, with the ability to add images to your showcase

Example:

In this example, BWP Trust uses the Showcase Module to highlight the locations of their properties.

Use the interactive map to search by location, where visitors can drill down to particular areas:

Each item in the showcase has its own page including details and images:

A simple list can also be used to showcase company assets:

Feature Update: Newsroom Types

Our popular Newsroom product just got even more flexible. Previously, announcements had been grouped together depending on the type of announcement they were, these groups helped to determine which pages and subscriber groups those particular announcements should be published to. For example, the “ASX Periodic” type would include announcements such as annual reports, full and half year accounts etc.

We wanted to make these groups (we call them Types) more flexible so we have opened up the feature to be fully customisable. Now clients can create new Types and select the various announcements that you would like to belong to this Type. We have also added the flexibility to disable Types if they are no longer necessary.

The Types can be viewed and edited through the Distribution Channels page under the IRM Newsroom section of HQi.

Feature update: new ordering options for list pages

We have also updated our list pages to be able to display more details about your announcements and we’ve made the ordering options for list pages much more flexible.

Firstly, users can now manually edit the order in which the announcements appear, rather than strictly using A-Z or chronological order, these can be overridden by using the new “sequence number” options available.

HQi users also have the ability to show the file size when uploading announcements and presentations onto list pages. This is particularly useful for users on mobile phones and tablet devices that may have a restricted data usage.

Example:
Amaysim have added a file size to their announcement pages as a simple indication for visitors of how big each file is to download.
