    NewGenreSoft.com Review

    Design

    Rounded corners, the picture of the mobile phone in clouds fading into the page and the neat positioning of elements gives NewGenreSoft.com an elegant feel. However there are a few small rough edges even on the homepage itself.

    The header image which says "NewGenreSoft solutions" is rather fuzzy which spoils the overall professional feel of the site. I would suggest re-doing it and saving it in at least JPG or PNG format instead of GIF and make sure it looks smooth. In the process I would capitalize "Solutions" as that looks more fitting for a title of the site. I took the liberty of creating an example of what I mean.



    Among further suggestions I would add changing the "Us" in "contact Us" to small case so it shows "contact us" in order to be consistent. Either that or change all links to capitalize first letters. It may also be a good idea to reduce the size of the image in the "About Our Company" text so that the text that floats around it has a little more room. As it is now the text is rather cramped on the side to the picture.

    Alternatively, it may help to increase the width of the space occupied by the text, albeit it seems to use tables so that might be a little challenging. If you can, I do suggest converting at least some elements to CSS as it provides more flexibility.

    Now on to the more obvious issues:

    1. Header image (containing site's title) doesn't display on all pages, but the area in which it is links to a page that doesn't seem to exist. Some people have a habit of clicking in that area to get to the homepage so aside from making sure header image is actually displaying there, it would be good to link it to homepage.

    2. "Walk with us" block on the homepage appears cut up. I actually mistook it for links, but then realized it's actually a business pitch. This needs to be straightened out by making the text appear naturally, probably as a couple of nice paragraphs.

    3. Site Map link leads nowhere.

    4. There is no distinction between links that lead off site and those which are actually navigating the site itself. At least changing the color or putting the off-site links in a separate block might be a good idea. As it is now, a user will think "Work online" and "Earn for participating" are pages on NewGenreSoft.com.

    5. Many paragraphs on the site are a little too long which makes them harder to read. Just splitting them into multiple smaller paragraphs may help.

    6. A subpage to BPO Jobs page contains what appears to be a flash insert. I would suggest, if possible, making the information from the flash available as normal HTML on the site for consistency. Each section in the flash can be a subpage of "BPO Jobs".

    Overall, as far as design is concerned there is a simple and elegant base, but the details need some work to make the site feel more professional and smooth.

    Design Rating: 6/10


    Focus

    To start off, it's clear this is essentially a brochure type of site for an IT company and the introductory "About Our Company" section describes in general what the company is about and where it's from, albeit it isn't very specific about exact services offered.

    The "What We Do" part somewhat rectifies this and gives the impression that the company is about converting data from hard copies into digital soft copies. However the "Our Services" page highlights "web development" and "web hosting" in its right block while further explaining the whole data digitization business in the main section. The two long paragraphs of the text explain it as a home business opportunity, as individuals can be hired to manually type data into Notepad or MS Word.

    The term BPO also isn't clearly defined for those who might not know what it refers to. A simple link of the term within the text to [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_process_outsourcing"]wikipedia page on BPO[/ame] would do.

    What I suggest is to streamline the presentation of services a bit. List all of what the company actually offers in the "What We Do" section of the homepage using bullet points and then provide a "learn more" link to "Our Services" page where each paragraph with corresponding titles briefly describes the services. Instead of mentioning web development and web hosting in the block, a block might serve for some additional information or perhaps testimonials, while the actual services are outlined in one place, the main content area of the "Our Services" page.

    Alternatively each specific service may have its own page explaining it in more detail, while not being too long. In this case instead of bullet points on the homepage the menu itself would serve as a listing of services. The example of this already exists on the site as a "Get a Free Website" menu link and associated page.

    This said, while there is apparently room for improvement, even as imperfect as it is the site does manage to convey what it's about, digitization coupled with web development and hosting, possibly in relation to the digitization services (hosting the digitized material and developing web sites that publish them?). It just needs to be made a little clearer and more streamlined so the reader can get the scoop of everything NewGenreSoft can do for him or her as quickly and easily as possible.

    Focus Rating: 7/10

    Content

    Since content is mostly dedicated to explaining what the company is about there isn't much more to say in addition to above except that it is somewhat apparent that the site wasn't written by english natives, which isn't surprising given that it is stated upfront that this is an Indian company. Nevertheless it is fairly easy to understand the content and, especially with above suggested improvements, it would get the job done.

    There is also a pay list of members previously paid for data conversion along with reports which helps solidify potential new workers confidence in the firms claims as they have names and even contact information of those who have already worked with NewGenreSoft. A subpage to the BPO Jobs page also has a flash section with the types of jobs, payments and specifications.

    Content Rating: 9/10

    Overall

    NewGenreSoft.com does its job, but could use significant improvements in terms of design and structure of content in order to improve the user experience and readability. Someone interested in web development or web hosting services probably wont be attracted to NewGenreSoft by this site, but those looking to make some money doing data entry jobs might.

    Overall Rating: 7/10

    Best of luck!

    I think it looks much better now. The new header image is most refreshing, as well as toolbar. I think the toolbar might be useful for people who wish to connect directly with you on facebook and twitter without leaving the page. So as long as it actually gets used I think it's great.

    Cheers
