Averitt launches industry's first 100 percent mobile-enabled website
January 23, 2014
COOKEVILLE, Tenn (January 23, 2014) — Averitt Express has launched a redesigned version of its corporate website, AverittExpress.com.
The new AverittExpress.com is the industry’s first 100 percent mobile-enabled website. Every shipping tool that is available on the site — literally dozens of tools — is mobile-friendly across all types of devices, including smartphones and tablets. This aspect makes the new site unique among transportation providers in Averitt’s class.
In order to create a site with this degree of mobile flexibility, developers spent months completely rebuilding the site using an innovative web design approach known as “responsive web design.”
AverittExpress.com was completely redesigned to provide a better user experience, with such features as:
- Faster speeds
- Simplified navigation
- Expanded tracking tools
- Easy-to-follow tutorials to explain how specific tools work
- Improvements to Ship PlusÂ®, our one-stop online shipping interface
- More video and interactive media than ever before
- And much, much more
“Redesign really doesn’t accurately describe the process our team has spent on this project, listening to customer feedback and applying it to a website that works no matter what youâre using to access it,” said Phil Pierce, Averitt’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “To do that, we’ve completely rewired the site to improve speed, reliability and ease of use. Once we finished with that, we renovated the rest of the site to make it much more modern, and much easier for our associates and customers to use.”
