Laundry Today’s Web site has recently been redesigned. Visitors to www.laundrytoday.com will find a streamlined, searchable site featuring, among other things, the ability to read entire issues online.
“We have been receiving an increasing number of hits to the Laundry Today Web site,” says Ron Weinstein, president. “The amount of people using the Internet to gather news and information grows daily. So to meet
their needs, our redesigned site offers improved navigation and detailed search features. It will help visitors who seek specific information on the topics we cover.”
Ron feels that in addition to the easily maneuverable design, the full array of information and back issues will benefit site visitors the most. “Visitors will be able to either search for a particular article – or read an entire current, or back issue – online. The site will still maintain important links to companies that provide products and services to the industry in the Products and Services directory.
“We will continue to work on the site to present an increasing amount of information and to make the user experience more enjoyable,” says Ron. We welcome any thoughts or comments you have on our new redesign.
