In the light of this, the trade counter business has developed a new website, which implements a fully responsive design, so they can offer all visitors the best experience possible regardless of what device they use. Managing director, Joe Trueman, comments: “We have completely revamped our website to reflect the level our business is at right now, and the fully responsive aspect is paramount for gaining better exposure to potential customers. Joe added: “Our clients are busy people who spend a lot of time on the road and onsite, but use the information on our website and our ordering system on a daily basis. The new site looks, works and reads well from any mobile device they might use between jobs, allowing better access to all the products and services we offer, anytime, anywhere. Truemans Windows’ brand new, fully-responsive website “We have invested heavily in our online presence to make sure we offer the same great experience remotely, as we do in our branches. The online ordering system is a convenient way to buy products, but it’s also helping our clients sell more to the end consumer thanks to features such as Uplift, which allows them to produce professional, customised quotes and email or print them on the spot,” concluded Joe.
