The process is simple. Upload your logo, choose your colours and the design you want to use, then simply add any of the properties on your books you want to display. Hit play, and hey presto, you're broadcasting digital window cards. You can even preview your slideshows before deciding to publish!

Via Website Edition

WHAT IS VIA?

VIA is our very latest software.

 

VIA Website Edition will be replacing our V5 CMS software. It is the software which enables you to add and edit your website page content.

You will have been using Webdadi V5 CMS Edition to do all of this, but VIA is our latest offering which makes things easier, faster, and comes with a host of new features to help improve the look and feel of your website

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

It's completely FREE!

Most providers would charge you to upgrade to their latest software, but not us. We have a firm commitment to our innovation updates, and this is the very first innovation update to your software.

All Webdadi V5 CMS customers will be upgraded to our VIA Website Edition software over the next couple of months without any additional setup charges or increases to your monthly subscription.

Our Account Manager's will be in touch with you, to help train and give you information about the switch over.

WHAT ABOUT MY CURRENT SOFTWARE?

All your data and info will be pre loaded to the new system for you.

Don't worry. When you log into your new software, all of your existing data will simply be copied and uploaded to the new software, so you won't notice any loss of data.

Everything will be waiting for you when you log in, right where you left it. In fact, with our new layouts and features, your data will never have been so easily accessible! Simply log into your new software and carry on using your software as normal.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

Absolutely nothing.

Our Account Managers will be in touch with you sometime over the next two months when you're software has been switched over. We'll carry out everything behind the scenes for you to get you ready to roll. We'll simply give you a call as soon as you can access your software, give you a quick training session, and off you go.
