Wave Debuts Two Websites
HOUSTON — Wave Electronics has launched mobile-friendly and dedicated security websites, so approved dealers can now view products and information in a way that caters to a mobile device. In lieu of simply “recanning” the current website into a mobile site or app, the team worked to create the site from the ground up, the distributor said.
The features retained in the mobile site are wish lists, account history, rewards activity and events sections; however, the layout has been simplified to load more quickly, making it easier to find products but still show all of the pricing and product information that dealers have requested, Wave said.
The dedicated security website will feature product category headers, suggested products, news or events, and marketing customized to this channel.
