As I sit here biting my nails, waiting for our new web-site to launch, I'm told that it could be completely down for up to 48 hrs, ouch!, I thought, why not take this time and talk about some of the new features of our new home?
1) This new site features even more information then our last site from 2001 but we've designed it so that the information you read isn't overwhelming, taken in bite sizes rather then all at once. If you're up to the task you can continue to dig in to learn more about that subject. On that note we've added 'Learn More' icons for more pertinent information on that particular subject you are reading. This takes you to another level, and we'll be adding more layers as time goes by. So if you just need a quick summary about window film in general it's within easy grasp but if you want to learn more about specific types of window film technologies we've added this additional layer which in turn is connected to our Technical section for even more information. We will continue to expand on this but it will never be cluttered, that's the main goal at least!
2) Access to information is a breeze, a simple feature I love is the Search function, it works great! Give it a shot, search for whatever is on your mind such as 'price', 'about fading', 'frosted window film' etc... A very direct and easy way for you to find what you need.
3) We've added a Customer Downloads area, we'll be adding specification charts etc. here so keep checking back!
4) Need to figure out how much it will cost? We made the whole process simple, you now can visually see what a typical project generally goes for, we added 3 price points to conform with our pricing structure of Intermediate, Professional and Premium Solar Window Films. We added another level where you have the capability to submit to us the sizes of your glass and location. Even choose the film type from the drop-down menu. For those of you that work full time jobs and don't have the time to have a sales person visit your home this feature can be exactly what you were looking for. Along with some sort of minor communication via email or phone conversation we can recommend and mail you some samples. Within days you can have your home treated, all without having to take off for work or being inconvenience.
5) Our industry partners now have a convenient and secure area to download important documents and keep up on industry trends etc...
6) Social links! Our new site is thoughtfully integrated with the social network. Please hit them like buttons, Twitter, etc... I invite you to be part of our family of interesting industry partners and friends and to share anything that's on your mind.
7) Much thought has gone into the navigation. We got rid of the clutter and added the most used links to the footer of the site, where it's easily accessible within any page during any moment.
As a serious tech junkie, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and business owner, I'm pretty excited about this new site, I hope you like it as much as I do.
We're always standing by to answer any questions or suggestions you may have and hope we can be of service to you!
