Many of our clients are active on Instagram today, sometimes posting daily about their business. With this new feature, we wanted to offer them a great way to showcase their Instagram images or videos without manually adding them to the gallery. As you add content to a connected Instagram account, it will automatically sync to show your latest posts on your website.

The number of posts visible on the website will vary based on the screen size and the branding settings of your business.

A minimum of 4 Instagram posts is needed to start using this feature.

New language: Dutch

 

Improvement

As part of our transition to the new version of CentralApp for our Belgian & Dutch clients, we have now re-enabled the Dutch language on CentralApp. If your plan allows multi-language, you can enable it today in the settings of your company.

If you need to change the primary language of your company to Dutch, please get in touch with your support at support@centralapp.com team so we can do it for you.

Improvement

As part of our transition to the new version of CentralApp, you will now also see the billing information, invoices & payment methods in the new version of CentralApp.

In our previous version, some billing-related information was only available by contacting us or checking your activation email. With this release we have taken the opportunity to increase the details you can view at any time on the billing page:

  • Contract details ( Contract duration, notice period and renewal scheme).
  • Active addons.
  • Number of locations purchased & Active.
  • Billing info ( Name, address, VAT number).

For most of our clients, we have made it possible to view the invoices from our previous version. However, in some rare cases, you will still need to get in touch with us to get a copy of the invoices issued before the transfer.

Multi-level navigation & direct transactions

 

New

 

 

One of the critical elements we measure on our website is conversion. And one of the key elements which will help increase the conversion rate is reducing the number of clicks a potential lead has to make a booking, schedule an appointment, order for delivery or simply get in touch with your business.

This update includes various small improvements to reduce the number of clicks your visitor could make on your website which can be classified into two main categories.

1. Multi-level navigation

Some of our pages could now have multi-level navigation. In this first release, it means that individual menus or individual locations within a chain can now be accessed directly from the main navigation.

This update takes into account our branding system, so the look & feel may be very different on your website.

2. One-click access

We have made multiple updates to make it possible to access specific pages or third party integration directly when there was no need to redirect a visitor to a detailed page in between.

Here are some of the use-cases:

  • Websites that are only using one third party integration for a given service
  • Website that is only using the phone for a given service
  • Website that only has one menu.

With our new menu editing tool, we wanted to take the hassle of updating and editing your menu in a word document or through an editing agency and turns it into something simple and easy to manage.

With this improved feature (ie. on top of uploading PDF menus) you can now create & edit multiple menus directly in CentralApp. Our editor will make it possible for you to add sections, menu items, promotional prices or prices variations, define allergens, define custom tags & add dietary restrictions.

When your menu is ready to be published, you can program its publication on one or multiple locations, but also hide the price if they vary between your different locations.

As some of those page may continue to receive traffic (referenced on another website, displayed in search results, etc.) this traffic can be redirected to the page of your choice in the website settings.

On a technical standpoint, all the redirections configured are 301 (Permanent) redirects.

Improved Intro & Navigation & More logo options

 

New

 

Improvement

 

 

We have been working actively with our BETA users to improve the branding of the websites, taking their feedback to understand what we had to change in order to improve the first thing you see when you land on a website : The INTRO and the NAVIGATION

This release includes:

  • Countless new cases for the branding system for all industries.
  • Support for new types of logos (more explanation below).
  • Support for slogans.

Some descriptive fields have also been renamed to clarify the content that was expected.

Support for more Logos

Initially we only had support for combination logos and profile picture. We have now added support for logotype and logomark that can be added separately into the page "Visuals".

Logotype (or wordmark)

This is the most common type of logo and they are quite easy to identify. This type of logo uses a word, often the name of the company, as the main center and focal point. It relies heavily on a clever choice of fonts, which means that the font itself is often a direct reminder of the brand name.

Logomark

Logomark is mostly used by more established companies. It uses a symbol or icon as the main focal point of the logo.

Combination

Combination logos are just what they sound like: a combination of logotype and logomark arranged in a unique manner.
