CENTRIA Unveils New Website and Private Portal

Tuesday, February 10, 2009 by Centria

CENTRIA, an industry leader in architectural metal wall and roof systems, has unveiled its latest innovative project — a new corporate website and portal. The new public website, www.CENTRIA.com, has improved functionality and capabilities that will better serve visitors (particularly architects), owners and contractors. The private portal is designed for architects, CENTRIA dealers, partners and employees who need to tap into the metal wall and roof system knowledge available from CENTRIA.

“Our new website and portal are more than just showcases to display our broad product portfolio,” said Rick Brow, director of marketing at CENTRIA. “We listened to architects, customers, employees and CENTRIA dealers and upgraded both the corporate website and our portal based on that feedback and insight. These new sites have robust and dynamic information. Now it is easier to navigate and search for information and resources most relevant to the individual user. It also makes direct collaboration with CENTRIA sales representatives even easier.”

One of the primary improvements to the CENTRIA website is the reorganisation of resources so that it is now easier for users to find product information including data sheets, specifications, illustrations and completed projects.

The navigation improvements, coupled with an even more enriched project photo portfolio, will make the user’s experience much more productive. With hundreds of photos of completed projects from around the world, the updated project portfolio has additional search fields that enable architects and others to fine-tune their search and locate projects via location, type of project and/or the products used.

Other improvements include the ability to personalise portal pages by creating favorites that enable users to access the sections they frequent with just one click after signing in. Another new feature is notification alerts displayed when documents are amended by CENTRIA so users can access the most updated information. They will also have the ability to run more thorough site searches with specific selection fields that make the search process more defined.
