    New CAPITA Customer Portal

    It's been a long time coming and it's finally about to enter the BETA testing phase.
    If you haven't logged in to SupportNet in the past 12 months, then do so now, so that your login will be transferred to the new Customer Portal.

    Information from SupportNet

    Introducing the new customer portal

    Dear SupportNet user,
    We have been working over the last year to create a replacement for SupportNet and we are delighted to announce that we are now approaching the Beta phase which will affect all users.
    The Beta stage, which is due to begin in May, gives you an opportunity to test the new customer portal yourself. During the Beta phase, we will be inviting as many users to logon as possible on specific dates to aid stress testing - these will be advised nearer the time.
    We’ll keep you informed as the project goes on and ensure you’re fully up to speed with how the portal works. But in the meantime, here are just a few of the differences you can expect:
    You will access the portal in a different way – you can click on ‘My Account’ through the SIMS, SIMS Independent or Capita One website (depending on which type of customer you are)


    • We’ve made the user interface more modern and friendly, making it easy for you to navigate around. You will also be able to access the portal from a mobile device.
    • We’re making it simpler for you to log various tickets so we can respond as quickly as possible
    • A new change request process is being put in place
    • ‘Forums’ will be part of a new ‘community’ section and will initially only contain six months’ worth of threads with recent posts
    • Documents from SupportNet will only be migrated to the customer portal if they were created since 1/1/2011.

    Please be aware that we will only be migrating users who have logged in during the past 12 months. This means if you haven’t logged in you will lose your login details so please spread the word across your school or authority.
    We have spent significant amounts of time testing and getting feedback on the new portal from our Alpha community (volunteers from schools and local authorities who have been testing and giving feedback on an early ‘alpha’ version throughout), to provide a great result for the end user.
    You can also look out for regular updates available through SupportNet and on the SIMS, SIMS Independent and Capita One websites.
    If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email me

    Kind regards,
    Steve Russell

    IT Director

    Some more info on their blog here including a screenie - some of the info is already above, but it's nice to see.
    An introduction to your new customer portal | capita-sims.co.uk

    It looks much nicer and brighter than the alpha model i tried out.
    I'm looking forward to finding out what it will be called...

    Looking forward to it! Searching for anything on supportnet is like looking for a piece of a hay in a stack full of needles, and just as painful

    To save time it's all pre-hidden.
    There is also no search facility.
    It's more like twitter and facebook, you will see some degree of history, but on the whole you have to be there monitoring live to catch all the info.
    The idea is to get everyone on there all the time, and not relying on EduGeek.

    I see what you did there. Finding information is an exercise in frustration and often a waste of time.

    If it could be narrowed down to a particular haystack, that would be something at least.

    I mean, global search, site search, KB search, file search, documentation search, news searches..... I could go on.

    They should have a meta search - a search of searches. Or perhaps even something that's well designed. We live in hope.
