Colombo Process introduces a dynamic online information portal that’s engineered by Pyxle

by Pyxle PR on October 12, 2016

The Colombo Process is an organisation which acts as an independent governing body for policies, standards and regulations revolving around labour sending countries in Asia. Primarily an information and publication based web platform, Colombo Process underwent thorough needfinding during its design stage. A user persona analysis was executed by our web engineering panel with quantitative and qualitative feedback obtained from questionnaires, surveys and one-on-one interviews from current audiences.

The wireframes created were subsequently reliant on all profiles from the persona analysis; making sure to strike the right balance such that every user profile was catered to equally, from an initial low-fidelity stage. Information findability was a major pain point that was brought to light during the requirement gathering stage. Improved information architecture was therefore delivered via compartmentalisation based on the user persona analysis that was carried out. This helped transform the manner in which users could find that they are looking for.


The intuitiveness of the search engine was thereby enhanced owing to these strategies. Add to this an accounts section which features industry standard security, along with knowledge sharing platforms and video conferencing tools to facilitate communication across member states.

The Colombo Process is an organisation that works with labour exporting countries in Asia, by facilitating a platform to create and discuss regulations, policies and crisis management regarding manpower placed overseas. In operation since 2003, 11 countries actively participate in this forum, with 8 observer countries offering the support required to sustain fair and equitable practices when it comes to labour export.

Google removes ‘mobile-friendly’ label from search results, further validates the necessity of responsive webpages

by Pyxle PR on September 26, 2016

A change that was put to effect in due course of the last month, Google now omits the ‘mobile friendly’ label which appears on the left of search results. With a vast majority of websites now adhering to mobile responsiveness, the search engine giant determined that removing the label would de-clutter the display of search results.


Google also stated that websites with unnecessary pop-ups will be penalised during the forthcoming year. Banners which cover a significant portion of indexed content on webpages or interstitials that push content below the fold will negatively affect rankings.


Exceptions include cookie policies, legal disclaimers, age verifications, login requests for non-indexed content and banners which do not compromise on the immediate access of content.


So what does this mean for your business’s web presence?

It’s not breaking news that mobile responsiveness is ubiquitous and an absolute necessity for grabbing the attention of customers, retaining that attention and ensuring good ranking in search results today. What’s newfound is that the correct UI can also assist your website to land high within search rankings due to improved accessibility of content – and the correct design and placement of interstitials proves just that.

In conclusion, it’s safe to say that a carefully structured website leads to high quality, organic SEO. Both these aspects within today’s digital sphere go hand-in-hand. Therefore, our panel of web engineers and SEO technicians work in tandem to produce the right blend of strategies that result in a holistic digital presence.

Nowadays, concentrating on effective UI strategies in conjunction to SEO is the ideal blueprint to construct a competent web presence, unlike times gone by when each of these areas were individually focused upon.

by Pyxle PR on September 23, 2016

In its latest web application vulnerability report, online security scanning expert Acunetix states that high severity attacks have been on the rise by 9%, since 2015.

As the digital sphere accelerates into a fast-paced environment which millions depend on daily, the chances of security breaches tend to increase manifold too. Companies now excessively rely on web apps to satisfy consumer demands, while giving development teams tight deadlines to implement solutions.

As the usage for apps reach its peak, over 27,000 web scans and over 17,000 network scans have been analysed by Acunetix, disclosing all results over its comprehensive Web Application Vulnerability Report 2016.

Web server and perimeter network vulnerabilities have incurred a significant increase, while serious vulnerabilities over WordPress and JavaScript have more than doubled during the past 12 months. With most websites worldwide susceptible to at least one highly severe security attack, it is highly likely for breaches to occur if action isn’t taken quickly, and by effective means.

A leading name in online security scanning, Acunetix has been helping websites and web applications achieve superior security standards since 2005. The security expert recommended actions which involve a combination of preventative measures as well as solutions to fix prevailing security defects.
