The new site offers a host of new and enhanced features including a completely configurable parametric search, allowing customers to compare devices and guiding them towards the best solution for their design. David Pearson, Technical Director at Anglia, commented “The improved user experience on Anglia Live has been carefully developed over 18 months based on feedback from users. The website now offers users a more intuitive and enjoyable browsing experience – allowing customers to search the way that suits them.”
The search facility on Anglia Live is geared towards both engineers and buyers alike and encourages customization. Users can apply multiple filters to a single search and the parameters automatically turn grey when narrowed down to only one option. The parametric search also has an innovative undo feature that allows users to undo the changes they made one at a time instead of having to reset the whole search and start again if they have chosen an incorrect option.
Thanks to a spreadsheet-style overview of components with a floating table header, customers can easily compare specifications of components without opening each individual page, saving valuable time. The search itself is exceptionally fast and can generate thousands of results in less than a second based on the keyword, part number or industry standard number entered. The site layout adjusts neatly to the individual user’s screen size and retains its functionality even on portable devices.
