A Note About Beta

Because we only launched our site in "Public Beta" mode today, that means there are still a lot of wrinkles to iron out over the next few weeks. Anyone who has done any web development knows that the process never really ends. No matter how exhaustive the initial development is, and no matter how many stones need to be turned before the site launch, the site cannot become a true success until the users have their say. So, any ideas, comments or insight you may have after touring FacilityLocations would be very much appreciated. To do so, please use the feedback tab that is positioned in the left margin of most FacilityLocations pages.

Data Tweaking
Also, please keep in mind that there is much tweaking and massaging yet to be done with our listings data. We added close to 4,000 ED listings today including over 80 Select Sites and, we still have a few thousand left to port over. Unfortunately, the automated process of porting the data into our DB wasn't as bullet proof as we had hoped, so you might see some missing contact names and such for the time being.

Select Site Profile Pages
Also, there is ALOT of data to be added for each select site including video, news feeds, location assets and available properties.  We are still in the process of connecting our site to the demographics engine so, for the time being, it is not possible to produce demographic reports.

Stay tuned here for updates on new versions and capabilities....
