After a couple of months of hard work the new website is finally here and went live at the weekend – we absolutely love it! As well as a sleek new look we’ve added some great new features that we hope will make the site quicker and easier for you to use. We’ve listed some of the key features below and we’d love to hear what you think of the new site so get in touch with us via email or on Facebook or Twitter.
What is new?
New and improved product pages
We have revamped our product pages to give you easy access to all the important information about each product in our range. We’ve included pictures of the products in use and excellent product demonstration videos for many products. We’ve also improved our product search and category structure to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
Product reviews and case studies
We’ve introduced product reviews so you can let us know exactly what you think once you’ve tried a product in the Owatrol range. You can also read reviews from our other customers as well as look at our selection of case studies and before and after photographs.
Improved basket and checkout process
We’ve made it even easier to buy direct from Owatrol by improving the visibility of the basket, streamlining the checkout process and generally making the experience more straight forward. You can now also create an account which saves any orders you make so you can re-order them quickly. This is great for regular customers and those who often order the same products again and again – it will save you so much time!
Handy news and information section
We’ve added a news and information section with all the latest Owatrol news as well as lots of useful information for customers. We will be adding to this regularly with a selection of the following:
- Case studies and before/after shots – great examples of real customers using our products and showing the impact they have on their products (if you’ve had a good experience using our products and you’d like us to share some pictures then please get in touch)
- Industry information – information for professionals about new development with our products and within the decorating and wood care industries
- Owatrol news – information about us and what we’re up to, including trade shows and exhibitions that you can find us at
- General tips and Information – handy guides like our Wood Care Guide and other bits of important information for customers considering DIY projects and other home improvement
- Tradesman interviews – a selection of interviews and discussions with professionals in the industry, with their top tips and reasons why they use Owatrol products
Better performance on mobile and tablet devices
We’ve designed our new site especially with mobile users in mind as we can see that a lot of our customers are accessing the website on the go. It’s now easy both to browse the website and to buy direct from your mobile or tablet so it’s perfect for if you’ve out and about or working on site. You can still access all the great information and the product demonstration videos too!
Expanded Owatrol product range
We’ve taken the opportunity with the launch of the website to also expand the product range available through it. You can now purchase products from The Owatrol Professional Range as well as some products previously not available on the website such as Owatrol Deco. Stay tuned for a rundown of the new products in the news section in the near future!
We really hope that you like the new site, please get in touch and let us know what you think!
