It has been a good while since I have had any updates so far as to the rebuild of the REP system. I am pleased to say that I have had a very fruitful call with our team over at VerticalScope. We now have a developer who will be undertaking the re-build of the REP system. The developer in question was one of our developers back from the good old days of 2004 when the site was first born, as such we have someone with prior technical knowledge of OCN as well as a technical expertise in VB.
As for a rough ETA. As I have bought in an outside developer to carry out the works, there is a legal process that must be completed prior to the access and coding stages. This should take a couple of weeks with a view to start development ASAP.
Realistically there are still some unknowns until our developer can investigate the system. With development and testing phases combined with the standard holiday season disruption towards the end of the year, I believe a launch of the system will happen early new year. If we can confidently bring this system live prior to then, we certainly will.
It has been a good long while without the REP System and there a multitude of factors for its delay. I apologise for the fact it has taken an unbelievable amount of time to get to this stage. Once I have further updates, I will be sure to post here.
Thank you for your continued dedication and patience,
