NCCI Updates Website

The NCCI updates website with many improvements.  Actually, the NCCI has updated their website often in 2014.  The much-appreciated upgrades were long overdue.

Some of the upgrades were:

All of the updates or enhancements come with a webinar which covers the updates and enhancements.  As we all know, upgrades and updates sometimes overdo their intended purpose.  NCCI did not change things so much that navigation of the website was the least bit confusing.  The navigation was similar to the old website.

Unlike most websites, the webinars are actually chock-full of great information and very easy to navigate.  Webinars are becoming the bane of web user, but not in this case.

One of the big enhancements is for Google Chrome and Firefox  web browser users.  Many web savvy user now use these two web browsers.  One of the most complex uses of NCCI’s website was the browser requirement of Internet Explore only.   This was due – without sounding too geeky- to most of the NCCI website being built on frames.   This was a reliable but very old way to program websites.

The complexity kicked in when I had to have Internet Explorer, Chrome,  Adobe (PDF), and Microsoft Word or Excel open when working on the NCCI website.  Internet Explorer would crash so many times that on some days, NCCI was unworkable.  One very interesting was that NCCI seemed to work the best with Windows XP.

In case you are interested, you can find Chrome here and Firefox here.

The NCCI website now seems to work with Chrome and Firefox.  The upgrades may not work with all of the website, but so far so good.

One nice update is the pricing any data such as E-Mods or Worksheets is very transparent.  If you do not have a username and password from NCCI, a large portion of the website can be reached by the general public.
