Our community goals

Our community goals are to support SOASTA customers in their ongoing use of our products.


The design elements that make our community unique

The SOASTA design is simple, elegant, and intuitive. SOASTA’s customers represent companies that are transforming their digital initiatives to keep pace or compete in e-commerce. Our products span many different categories and themes relative to digital performance. Our design allows users to find information fast, so that our users can get back to optimizing their revenue generating applications.


How we executed our community design

We consulted with Lithium account representatives and the greater Lithium team for “best practices.” We decided on a simple format, then worked with UX designer for mock-ups, and finally implemented through a third party developer.


Our metrics

The SOASTA redesign is less than a week old as of April 20, 2016, and we’re just starting to implement ideas to bring back previous users, attract new users, and create a vibrant forum. We're excited to achieve successful results with our redesign!
