COS Systems Launches Version 3.0 of COS Service Zones

  • COS Systems
UMEA, SWEDEN — COS Systems has released a major upgrades to its cloud-hosted demand aggregation platform COS Service Zones with the launch of Version 3.0. The upgrades are based on usability. “We have had customers launching their campaigns in less than a week from signing up, but some customers have required more time to get started. While we often hear it’s an easy-to-use software we still felt we needed to do a focused effort on simplifying the work of not only getting started using the platform but also to use it over time,” says Senior System Architect and COS Systems co-founder Peter Sjöblom.

COS Service Zones is a cloud-hosted software designed to enable any company or community planning to build a broadband network to divide their future service area into competing neighborhood zones. Residents and businesses are directed to an easily customized website where they can search for their address to see if they are in one of the zones competing to get service first. Each neighborhood zone has a take-rate threshold and it’s up to the residents to come together and prove that they want to be built first by signing up for service pre-deployment. Since first launched in 2013 it has undergone substantial development based on feedback from many types of customers and markets.

Quarterly Upgrades
“We release a new version of COS Service Zones about every quarter and are always looking forward to get the reactions from our customers. Since this release is so focused on usability we are especially eager to hear their feedback on this upgrade,” says COS Systems CEO Peter Lidstrom. “If you’re developing software for a fast moving industry and a global market you’re never finished.”

Redesign of the User Interface
“As you add functionality to a software system it obviously gets increasingly powerful and flexible, but complexity often increases as well. With this new major release of COS Service Zones we have made a substantial redesign of the user interface. It’s not about adding more functionality, but rather presenting all existing options in a comprehensible way. You shouldn’t need to search for things, but still not be drowned with information. We’ve tried to solve this with a brand new work-flow based dashboard,” says Development Lead Mattias Viberg. “It feels good getting out of the office for some paternity leave with this excellent new version released.”
