Viracon Introduces New Website
May 5, 2009
Viracon has introduced a new website at www.viracon.com. The company
says it re-designed the site to offer new tools and features that
will make it easy for architects, designers and glazing contractors
to browse, find and store glass product information.
"Based on customer feedback and usage patterns, we strived
to make the new site much more visual and easier to navigate,"
says Christine Shaffer, marketing manger at Viracon. "We've
also added new tools that make it easier for customers to find and
store ideas and information for their projects."
A new My Viracon feature allows customers to log on and
create folders to store product information for particular projects.
Customers may contact their Viracon representative to establish
a username and password, and then create multiple folders to store
information by project. In the coming months, Viracon will be continually
expanding My Viracon features to include new tools and capabilities.
Also new is an enhanced means of searching for performance data.
With the large number of coating, substrate and glass configuration
options available, the company has more than 4,000 lines of performance
data on the website. A new search tool allows visitors to begin
with a broad search, such as "insulating glass," and then
quickly narrow the search based on desired coatings, performance
values or enhanced features.
In addition, the company's GoogleMapsÒ feature has also
been expanded. The unique mapping feature allows visitors to search
for projects by geographic location. A Google map not only shows
where each project is located, but also includes Viracon product
information along with project facts and a photo, when available.
Job seekers will also find an expanded Viracon career section,
which features a link on the homepage.
"We're excited for people to visit the new site and explore
the new tools, and we encourage people to check back for even more
new features in the coming months," says Shaffer.
