New BTS website

24/01/2014

The BTS is extremely pleased to launch its new look website, which contains a significant increase in information and many new features.


The old website had not seen any significant changes for around ten years, and its structure was proving unable to accept additional functionality. The BTS Committee therefore decided to start again, with a new, modern looking design. We hope that you like it.

The new look BTS website, which brings together the previous BTS and BTSYM sites, has been completely re-written to provide:

  • A more modern look and feel to the site to encourage new visitors
  • A significantly increased quantity of information, hopefully in an easy to navigate way
  • Links to view the recordings of evening events
  • Calendar items for events that can be downloaded to Outlook
  • A web booking and payment system (for the BTS dinner and training courses)
  • A 'Members Area' with additional information available only for Members (this function will be available later in 2014)
  • A secure file sharing and transfer site for committee, sub-committee and working groups (this function will be available later in 2014)

The new website has a significantly increased data storage capacity and will be controlled directly by the Website subcommittee, allowing more rapid and precise updates, and significantly reducing the maintenance costs.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact the BTS Secretary.


The BTS would like to express their thanks to Ken Spiby, Chair of the website subcommittee for his work in leading the creation and population of the new website.
