More than Just a Facelift: Our Edmonton Valve Website Is Easier to Use

by Katie Reid, on Thu, Oct 13, 2016 @ 16:10 PM

Our redesigned site works just as well on your phone or tablet as it does on your desktop


Noticed a change when you come to our website? The updated site is easy to navigate and gets you to where you want to be in fewer clicks. Plus it looks great on your phone or tablet! 

We've been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make our website work better for you. Now we're showing it off and asking for your opinion.

Yes, we tried to make the site look better, but there's a lot more to it than that. Now when you visit Edmonton Valve & Fitting online, you'll be able to get more information, get it faster, and see it easily no matter what kind of device you are using.

Continuous Improvement - always

We really began beefing up our website back in 2012. That was the same year we launched this blog and started to make our most-requested written materials available on our site. We started posting to social media sites too. Since then we've constantly been adding content and tweaking the organization.

Along the way we noticed that we had to adapt to a fast changing tech world. New web tools come onto the market, and people adopt new ways of using them. We became aware that our old navigation tools were getting harder to use as we added more and more material. So we have worked out a better roadmap for our site.

Like every other company with a website, we realized that our content didn't always look the same on a smartphone or a tablet as it did on a standard desktop computer. Now you should find the site just as easy to use no matter what device you choose.


We didn't stop there, though. We also wanted to take a step back and make sure our information was presented in the most logical way. We analyzed which parts of our site were most popular, and tried to make them easier to reach. Think of it as being able to take more direct flights to the information you want instead of having to make a stopover first.

We've introduced product pages where you can get all the available literature on a given product category such as tubing, regulators, filters, and more. We have collected our video files under our Resources link, along with plenty of catalogues. As part of making it easier to get information, we've reduced the number of forms we ask you to fill out.

More to come

This isn't the end of our list of improvements. In fact, it's only the beginning. Technology will continue to evolve, our content will continue to grow, and Swagelok will continue to set new standards for fluid system components. We are excited to share out that content with our readers.

Come back often to see what's new. And let us know what you think, your opinion matters to us! Email marketing@edmontonvalve with your feedback, comments - thanks!
