Gaylord, Mich. –®, a leading provider of Internet optimization and connectivity solutions, today launched an innovatively new Web presence focused on visitor experience enhancements. This new design compliments and further solidifies the corporate commitment to providing unparalleled customer service.

“Our goals with the new Web sites are to produce the best user experience available today for an Internet software customer,” said Mike Deerfield, CEO of “Our Online Operations Team sought to take advantage of what they’ve learned through extensive research to identify how users navigate the Web, presenting the best possible experience for our customers. Seeing the results online and hearing the feedback of our preview customers, I think we’ve achieved that goal,” said Deerfield.

About the Redesign Project

The redesign of the corporate and product Web sites spanned nearly nine months of research and development. The stated objective for this project was to improve the user experience in six specific areas: page load time, user interface and navigation, action oriented navigation, personal content focused on how users read, cross-browser compatibility, and Web site error elimination.

“The launch of these new sites is possible because of the collaborative efforts of talented Web developers, graphic artists, marketers, copywriters, and customer service representatives specializing in sales and technical support. ” said Geoff Brown, Director of Online Operations. “As the project progressed, the more material I saw from the team, the more excited I became. I’m not only proud to be a part of the team, but also to launch this caliber of customer-focused Internet presence.”
