Connect:Direct Web UI

The existing Connect:Direct Browser interface is very dated. A new one has been in development which I had an opportunity to review last year. The new web UI would be a significant enhancement for improved usability for the product. We recently received a request from one customer - Credit Suisse, primarily using Connect:Direct zOS - who indicated that the existing UIs are very difficult to use and, in some cases, just don't work for them. The new UI should be completed and released.

    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement request.  I'm pleased to announced that we releases v6.0 on 12/7/18 which includes our new Web Console.  This is a web interface that works across Windows, UNIX, and Linux which has made great strides in our user experience.  Please visit our Passport Advantage website to download and start using this new enhancement.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
