Alliant Downgrades Website, Slows Access

The new Alliant website is excrutiatingly slow and requires more effort to accomplish the same tasks. Juvenile appearance with a lot of wasted space. Thanks so much Alliant programmers for destroying the best banking website in the nation.

I agree with every word you wrote. Indeed, they made the changes to appeal to juvenile members who rely primarily on small screen access . . . casting aside in the process and ignoring the preferences of adult members who access the Alliant website on a large screen.

It was precisely the many straightforward, high speed, single click options on the old website that made it so trying for small screen users to navigate. So a redesign was accomplished, dumbing down the website as an homage to the dumb and aligning it with their very limited cranial capacities.

The bottom line outcome is simplistic website pablum suitable primarily for children.

I, too, dislike the "new and improved" website. I agree with the other comments. The one saving grace is that the financial tools are still available, including the net worth calculator, with line items which can be updated. Alliant assets are updated automatically and non-Alliant assets can be entered and updated as you wish.

Anybody else note that the new website does not total your deposits?

As a follow-up, I sent my opinion directly to Alliant (via their secure e-mail). In a nutshell, I opined that the new website rhymes with the word "pucks". The response, received minutes ago, said, again in a nutshell, "get over it." I asked why they had eliminated the aggregate total of all deposit accounts, and the response, in a nutshell, again, was "add the sub-totals".

Bottom line: IT folks don't take well to criticism.
