This is a big step forward in the evolution of our business.
York, North Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 20 November 2013
Gear4music has launched a new-look website, exactly 10 years after its original Gear4music.com website was first launched.
All 19 of the company’s European websites have been updated using ‘responsive design’ elements that automatically detect either mobile, tablet, laptop or desktop platforms, altering the layout to improve customer experience.
The new website comes at a time of rapid expansion for the company, having grown by 50% this year, and having just moved into new 135,000 square feet premises.
The site also hosts Gear4music’s new short film, ‘Your Music, Our Journey’ produced by Digifish, a company run by Shed Seven member Paul Banks. A number of other Shed Seven band members and Gear4music staff also appear in the film.
Managing Director Andrew Wass commented, “This is a big step forward in the evolution of our business. We launched Gear4music.com exactly 10 years ago, and this is a great way to celebrate our birthday. I think the site is now much easier to use, and includes some great new search features to help customers find what they are looking for faster. I’m also really pleased with the short film we’ve made - it captures exactly what inspires us to keep improving and growing.”
