Spring Sprucing – Your Requests in Action

If you haven’t visited our web site lately, you’re in for a treat! And if you’re a regular, no need to adjust the display settings on your computer screen. The Transcender web site has gotten a fresh new look & feel, and some great new functionalities.

We have been hard at work over the past several months refining our site per your suggestions. We’ve improved the shopping experience to provide a faster and smoother checkout. Before you spend money, however, we want you to find the right product to meet your needs.To that end, we’ve added an important new feature: the Certification Exam Advisors.

If you don’t quite know how your job role (or the role you hope to be in) translates in the certification exam world, then you can use the Exam Advisor on each vendor page to guide you through the appropriate exam path.

To access an Exam Advisor, click the vendor name from the top menu bar. For example, here is the Cisco Track Advisor:

Cisco Certification Track Advisor
Clicking “Assoc. Level Route & Switched Networks Professional” pops up a graphic of the associated options. Option 1 is a single-exam track, the CCNA certification and exam 640-802. Option 2 leads to more choices:

Cisco Certification Track Advisor 2

Clicking Option 2 pulls up the ICND exams 1 and 2 (640-816 and 640-822). Taking the 640-822 earns the CCENT, and taking both earns the CCNA.

We also understand that you may not be ready to spend your hard earned money EVERY time you visit our web site. For those of us that like to window shop before we buy, there’s plenty to keep us busy on the new home page. We’ve changed our Question of the Day feature from an e-mail based subscription to a link on the home page, for everyone to enjoy. (Try testing your knowledge on a completely unfamiliar product. It’s fun.) You’ll also find updated IT industry headlines and a hard-to-miss link to our latest blog post.

Too busy to visit our site every day? No problem! Each of these categories has a one-click RSS feed feature so you can still enjoy news & updates from the comfort of your desktop or any garden-variety RSS reader. (And not to be outdone by our own web site, the Transcender Team Weblog will also get a shiny new look in a few days, so be sure to come back & visit to check out our new ‘do!)

Check out our makeover & let us know what you think. As always, your questions & comments are welcomed and encouraged.
