For Immediate Release
Aliquippa, Pa., April 9, 2013- In a demonstration of breakthrough innovation, ARDEX Americas announces a digital toolkit that provides unprecedented online access and capability, proving again that ARDEX sets the standard for the industry.
On April 9, ARDEX Americas published a new website, http://www.ardexamericas.com. Enhancements to the site include user-friendly navigation and content integration which improves online search capability. Users can search the case studies section or the media center, for instance, by product, market segment or product segment. ARDEX Americas publishes web content in English and Spanish, with French content in the planning and development stage.
The new website reveals a series of one-minute Prodcasts. The copyright-protected informational videos provide an overview of individual ARDEX products. Prodcasts complement the growing library of ARDEX product installation videos and also are published in English and Spanish.
The release of Prodcasts follows an online video challenge that enabled loyal ARDEX FEATHER FINISH fans to proclaim why they prefer the world's best underlayment patch. The FEATHER FINISH videos, and other elements of the product's 20th anniversary celebration, are published on a dedicated product website at http://www.ardexfeatherfinish.com .
