Grote Launches New Website
Grote Industries, a global manufacturer of vehicle lighting and safety systems, is pleased to announce the launch of the newly redesigned www.grote.com. With a host of new and enhanced features, the website continues Grote’s tradition of going above and beyond to deliver the best possible customer experience.
Visually and technically refreshed, the new site features a more intuitive approach to finding the parts that you need. An improved search function brings greater depth to each search, with a selection of relevant results appearing immediately as you type. For those who prefer a more leisurely browse through Grote’s offerings, products are organized into categories, subcategories, and families, making it much easier to find exactly what you’re looking for. Filtering products by their attributes will also allow customers to quickly and easily narrow their results to focus on only those products that best suit their needs.
As a company that prides itself on giving customers the tools to succeed, the website’s new product comparison feature does just that. This function provides users with the ability to select different products and easily compare the technical specs to help decide which is right for them. The results are displayed in an easy-to-read chart that can be exported to PDF format to be printed, emailed, or reviewed. “Our customers will now be able to compare any products on our website to get the best product for any specific application they may have,” said Matt Forner, Director of Aftermarket Sales at Grote. And with the website designed to function seamlessly on either mobile or desktop, Grote’s entire inventory is always at your fingertips.
At Grote, the needs of the customers are always at the forefront of decision-making. In order to have the freedom and flexibility to respond to those needs, redesigning the website began with building a custom Content Management System from scratch. “Our digital team is small, but passionate about the user experience,” said Grote Marketing & Marketing Technology Manager, Jessica Lackner. “We spent a tremendous amount of time evaluating heatmaps and reviewing analytical data to gain a solid understanding of how visitors are using our site, but more importantly, we spent just as much time sitting down and meeting with our customers to discuss how Grote Digital can support them and what tools we can provide to help them be successful.”
More than just a streamlined, easy-to-use website, www.grote.com is a portal for sharing the insight, information, and expertise of an industry-leading company with our customers throughout the world. With features ranging from a knowledge base of frequently asked questions, to extensive how-to articles and videos, to wiring diagrams, and even a live chat feature that puts you directly in touch with our knowledgeable staff, our new and improved website will have the answers you need. Visit our Markets pages to see the industries we serve and how our products serve those markets, with Grote products featured on an array of vehicles from big rigs and tractors, to RVs and golf carts.
As a family-owned company since 1901, Grote Industries is committed to taking care of customers and ensuring that they receive the best experience in every interaction. The new www.grote.com goes a long way toward making the digital experience the best in the industry.
While some businesses have been forced to close during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jefferson County Youth Shelter in Madison, Indiana has faced the opposite challenge. Due to their critical work providing round-the-clock housing and care for at-risk children and teenagers, they have not shut down or reduced capacity throughout the crisis.
As the world continues to struggle through the COVID-19 outbreak, the supply and distribution of Personal Protective Equipment to some industries and market segments remains erratic. With a clear need for effective safety equipment and a self-imposed mandate to help, the executive leadership team at Grote Industries decided to do something about it.
