The goal of the new Web redesign is to establish a new standard for excellence across Freedom's network of more than 40 Web sites by improving site speed, streamlining navigation and enhancing the design as well as adding new content and functionality.
The new site redesign project is in response to an extensive program of consumer research to ensure that Freedom's new site structure incorporates the highest standards of usability, navigation and design while providing relevant news and information as well as the products and services that consumers requested.
"We believe in super-serving our customers, so we asked for their feedback, guidance and direction. By listening to our customers and responding to their needs, we now offer easier and faster interaction with the news and information our customers care about. We are committed to continually improving our Web site experience based on our customers' needs and preferences. We are confident that our new redesign project will enhance our users' interaction across our network of Web sites," said Michael Mathieu, Freedom Interactive's President.
Overall improvements of the redesign project include: easy access to the most popular news stories of the day, prominent breaking news headlines, improved search functionality and design, a state-of-the-art video experience, enhanced classifieds products, the ability to create your own blogs, and share photos with the community.
