Polar Design created a uniquely designed public information site and secure participant portal for the IATSE National Benefit Funds. This multi-year project is the largest secure web portal to date planned and executed by Polar Design. It features extensive functionality, integration with third party system and enterprise grade infrastructure to support over a hundred thousand active members.
The general look and feel features special touches that amplify IATSE’s brand such as the IATSE spotlight spanning the entire length of the web site and “fading in” as if it is has been turned on for a theater performance. From a comprehensive dashboard that present participants with a bird-eye view of all their benefits after login, the IATSE secure portal is technologically robust and user friendly.
The IATSE secure portal features challenging requirements including:
The system architecture implemented follows:
The public and secure web sites both include mobile versions that feature large, easy to read text, large buttons, and an optimized single column display that requires no pinch/zoom to view images and text clearly.
Provide compact, simplified interfaces with large text, graphics and buttons to improve usability on mobile devices and tablets. Interfaces are designed to allow easy access to sub-pages by one tap, with the pages displayed in line and on the same screen saving time to load an entirely new page and making for a quick, smooth experience.
The example to the right shows these principals in the complete interface for the Annuity account dashboard, along with a sample subpage – the “Annuity Application Request” – that is accessible by tapping on the corresponding button.
