"We wanted to make sure that our new website gives everyone the tools – no matter their skill level – to complete their project, while being mindful that site navigation must be more intuitive, so solutions can be found more easily," explained David Keller, Leviton's Senior Director of e-Business. "With our newly designed navigation menu, it's now possible to access robust pages for the more than 25,000 products in our catalog in just one click."
The new website welcomes visitors with a cleaner interface layout and a rotating carousel of vibrant images that links directly to key pages on the site. The updated navigation menu improves browsing by condensing the number of tabs, bucketing relevant information under each tab and providing visitors the option to search for specific products or by solution. Visitors also have quick access to Leviton's complete newsroom for the latest information on Leviton innovations. The site also links visitors to all of Leviton's social media channels directly from the homepage.
