The WCHA has unveiled a new mobile website with significant upgrades
MADISON, Wis. - The Western Collegiate Hockey Association today announced an all-new mobile website that includes significant updates and upgrades to the previous platform.
The WCHA's men's and women's mobile site, which has been launched at the same url as before (www.wcha.com/mobile) now includes more visually appealing pages, a better navigation system and improved mobile box scores among other changes. The pages can be viewed on a regular web browser, but are optimized for mobile browsers.
"We couldn't be more pleased to announce this all-new WCHA mobile website to our followers across the country and around the world," said Commissioner Bruce McLeod and Associate Commissioner Sara Martin. "The WCHA has presented a significant number of improvements to WCHA.com over the past few seasons and now with this newest mobile development the men's and women's leagues will be at the forefront of providing quick access to all the latest scores, box scores, game stories, statistics and press releases with an easier-to-use, more appealing platform."
The many upgrades for 2012-13 that can now be found at www.wcha.com/mobile include the following:
- More visually appealing league and member team home pages with images included to promote the top stories.
- Better navigation system including easy links to each member team's home page from a menu at top of each page.
- Individual mobile player statistics pages that are accessible from team and league stats pages, press releases and game stories.
- Improved mobile press release presentation that now includes images and the ability for people to share via social media.
- Improved mobile game story presentation with images now included and the ability for embedding potential video. Mobile game stories can also now be shared via social media.
Significant changes to mobile box scores with the addition of all game data, including all player and team stats. Previous box scores were all text-based. The new version uses an "accordion" format for accessing different game stats categories. These mobile box scores will also be the basis for the live box scores for the coming 2012-13 season and beyond.
