Andersen Launches Three Redesigned Websites

BAYPORT, Minn. (November 8, 2012) — Andersen Corporation today announced it has launched three fully redesigned Andersen brand websites offering a richer, more intuitive navigation experience for customers and dealers looking for information about the company and its windows and patio doors. The all-new sites are also tablet-friendly, acknowledging the growing prominence of mobile access in the building industry and beyond.

“Before setting foot in a showroom or home improvement center, customers spend time researching their options online,” said Jim Conway, digital marketing director at Andersen. “We want to offer every website visitor the opportunity to dig deep and find more information on the styles that appeal to them so they can make a fully informed choice.”

THE NEW ANDERSENWINDOWS.COM

The new windows and patio doors website, www.andersenwindows.com, features a clean design, making it easy for visitors to find what they’re looking for. Detailed product information gives visitors a sound foundation of knowledge while choosing windows and doors and the ability to validate their product choices through user ratings and reviews. The redesigned site also offers the opportunity to share information on their selections through social media tools.

“Millions of consumers planning to build, remodel or replace their windows and doors visit our site each month. We’re committed to delivering more for them in this redesign with tools and resources easily and logically accessible,”Conwaysaid. “In addition to homeowners, we recognize that offering a comprehensive online resource for our dealers is critical.” According toConway, that includes mobile compatibility for the growing use of tablet and Smartphone technology in the industry. “Our customers and dealers work in environments where technology and, for that matter, electricity can be scarce. Mobile compatibility puts our product information in their hands anywhere, anytime.”
