Kicking the Virtual Tires
Case Construction Equipment has launched a micro website dedicated to providing information on its 400 Series 3 skid steers and compact track loaders (www.400Series3.com). Visitors to the site will have access to virtual product walk-arounds, specifications and feature information for all of the models, as well as special offers and promotions available for the 400 Series 3 machines. Testimonials, photography and video footage are also available at the website. Potential buyers also have the option of performing a spec comparison with competitive models to see how the Case units stack up by the numbers.
The Perfect Fit
Wagman Metal Products, a manufacturer of concrete finishing tools and accessories, has launched an interactive power trowel fitting guide that is designed to be easy-to-use, timesaving and an alternative to printed fitting guides. This guide is located at the company's website online at www.wagmanmetal.com. Visitors select the model number of any power trowel and the fitting guide automatically searches Wagman's complete line of 500 trowel blades and float pans. The guide then provides a list of what blades and pans fit the selected manufacturer's power trowel.
Simplified Online Ordering
Hertz Equipment Rental Corp. introduces a new website located at www.hertzequip.com. The website includes a completely redesigned homepage that features primary equipment and user options on one user-friendly page. Categories include a variety of construction, industrial, specialty and homeowner equipment.
The new site features a simplified equipment ordering process. Customers are able to save commonly used items and previous rental requests in their user profile and save jobsite information, so that they no longer need to re-enter that data during future visits to the website. Users are also able to view images of equipment models they are interested in, as well as rates that are specific to their contract. Visitors also have access to enhanced functions such as a branch-location finder that provides driving instructions to every HERC facility in the U.S.
