ARLINGTON, Texas, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Petmate, the worldwide leader of solutions and excellence in the pet industry, providing fun, trusted, quality products to enhance the lives of pets and their families, launches its new interactive e-commerce website. Just in time for the holiday season, Petmate.com will now offer users a personalized experience that will provide them with a wide variety of educational information and products to best care for and pamper their beloved pets.
"The new Petmate.com gives us the chance to share our years of expertise to help educate and guide pet parents with relevant trends, timely news, information and advice," said Emilye Schmale, Petmate's senior marketing manager. "We've compiled the data that pet parents crave and presented it in a fun and interactive platform. By combining general pet care information with detailed product information, we are simplifying the shopping experience for the fast-paced lifestyle of today's pet parents."
The upgraded website invites pet parents to register their pets through a personalized, interactive quiz. This enables each pet parent to describe their particular pet's behaviors, likes and dislikes, and much more. As the site learns about each pet it can then direct pet parents to news, information and products that best match their pet's profile. The website will recall users' pets' names and interests and continue to populate applicable products whenever they sign in to help pet parents make informed decisions about what is best for their pets.
In addition to current news and insights, Petmate.com will offer the "Petmate Academy" - a special area within the interactive site featuring educational articles written by Petmate's own experts and expert partners. This area of the site provides a "go to" destination for pet parents. The Petmate Academy is updated frequently as the team gathers cutting-edge information from within the pet community.
The site also offers a "Hot Deals" section with deep discounts on a wide variety of products. Additionally Petmate.com offers promotional sales and opportunities throughout the year. The new site enables consumers to purchase online directly through Petmate.com and also directs consumers to purchase via a variety of authorized participating retailers.
