Certikin’s New Website Is A Hit!

Certikin reports that its dynamic, newly-launched website, featuring improved navigation for easier access to its market leading portfolio, has received a very favourable response from the industry. Marketing Manager, Chris Green, said: “Super user-friendly, our website is designed to be both informative and time saving, so customers can manage their account as easily on site from their smartphone as they can in the office. “Certikin covers the broadest spectrum of products and is the home of all the leading wet leisure brands such as Maytronics, Calorex, Endless Pools, Roldeck, Coverstar and Malvern Boilers, many of which are exclusive, so you can rest assured you will find plenty of choice and just what you are looking for.” The site is open to everyone to view the company’s vast range but a Certikin web account is necessary to be able to order from over 6,000 listed products and spares and review past orders and invoices. There’s also a useful range of resources to download, including product brochures and technical installation manuals. The site is constantly updated to keep visitors updated of all company happenings and the launch of new products throughout the year. For inspiration, the site is linked to the company’s ‘Cool Pool’ blog, which highlights several spectacular projects showcasing the versatility of Certikin’s equipment. Certikin customers are invited to send in details of their latest projects to feature in future blogs and in the Cool Pool magazine. Certikin International 01993 777200 www.certikin.co.uk
