Bosch Rexroth Updates U.S. Website with Improved Search Functionality and Navigation
Bosch Rexroth Corporation Posted 06/18/2014Bosch Rexroth updates U.S. website with new look and user experience enhancements.
Bosch Rexroth U.S. recently launched a completely redesigned website at www.boschrexroth-us.com. The new site features an updated look and feel along with improved search capabilities and navigational structure. The goal was to give distributors, customers and other visitors to the website a more user-friendly experience and easier access to Rexroth products and other company resources.
The new design features improved navigation with the addition of drop-down lists to the top-level menus, a clickable history trail, which allows visitors to backtrack anywhere along the trail, and context-based left-hand menus for deeper navigation within a specific area.
\Another important upgrade is a much improved search function. The website now features the Google search appliance to provide best-match results faster than ever before. The results can be filtered to show results from the U.S. website only, from the company’s global website only or from all countries collectively. It is also possible to filter results by content type and language.
Other enhancements to the website include extensive service and training resources and a restructured product section that breaks products down into specific technology categories such as assembly, linear motion and welding, among many others. There is now a dedicated portion of the website for Rexroth’s popular resource kits, featuring a library of educational material addressing engineering challenges for a variety of technical topics including factory automation, mechatronics and hydraulics.
The website features links to Rexroth’s active social media accounts as well as press releases about the latest products and company news. The site will be updated regularly with the company’s latest technical articles and case studies. Visitors can also view Rexroth’s upcoming tradeshow schedule, and press kits from the shows will be uploaded to the site and available for download.
The new website represents a critical step in Rexroth’s goal to improve its digital communications with customers and distributors. Future planned enhancements include the addition of new capabilities, such as an online eShop and My Rexroth access.
