The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) recently launched a new design format for its Web site, www.opei.org, in order to provide easy access to three distinct visitor sections featuring information on commercial products, consumer safety, and OPEI membership information.
“Our Web site has always been a great resource for helpful safety, environmental, and emissions information, but now we've shifted the design direction in order to offer more ways for consumer and commercial users to obtain helpful access our members' web sites,” Bill Harley, president and CEO of OPEI, said. “We're particularly excited about new additions regarding e-commerce, a commercial products section and a moving message at the bottom of the home page featuring the latest OPEI news."
In both the consumer and commercial sections, a product directory titled Who Makes That? enables visitors enter a product category name like lawn mowers, chain saws, or leaf blowers to display the OPEI member manufacturers for those products.
There are sections on outdoor power equipment maintenance tips and audio/video files offering safety and lawn care advice. The Leaf Blower Log, a segment devoted to leaf blower safety, courteous operation and sound issues, offers a downloadable usage guide as well as an informative PowerPoint presentation created for use by dealers, commercial and residential users, and interested municipalities.
For manufacturers and industry suppliers, there is a classified ad section for job seekers, links to the National Weather Service, EXPO 2005 and a membership information section.
