New Rhein Chemie website: Fast information thanks to clear navigation and online registration

Saturday, 10. January 2009 Rhein Chemie has redesigned its global Internet site at www.rheinchemie.com, giving it a fresh new look and new content.

Thanks to the implementation of TYPO3, the navigation concept and clearly structured sites are right in line with current trends. “The homepage and the division portals show all content at a glance. We want to make it as easy as possible for users to access the information they want with just a few clicks,” says Martina Bitterlich, head of Corporate Communications at Rhein Chemie Rheinau GmbH, Mannheim, Germany.

A sophisticated product finder function also was developed, enabling users to list product overviews by product group, brand name, product name, etc.

Technical data sheets, brief technical reports and brochures can be downloaded as PDF files. Users are required to register online before downloading these documents.

Users who speak Chinese, Japanese or Spanish can go to the microsites to find contacts and basic information in their country languages.
