The New Mentor.com/embedded: Enhanced UI, Responsive Design & Better Search

Happy New Year!  You may have noticed that we rang in 2014 by launching a new website this week, affectionately known around here as “Mentor Embedded 3.0.”  In addition to the obvious look-and-feel updates & rotating offer banners at the top of certain pages there are a handful of functional upgrades we hope you will find useful:

  • Improved site experience for mobile devices
  • Guidance for search with auto-suggest
  • Easier ways to connect with us via Social Media and Live Chat
  • Faster access to product and industry information
  • New Automotive Solutions information

Improved site experience for mobile devices

The amount of traffic coming to our site from mobile devices continues to rise and the new site provides a much better experience when you use a phone or tablet.  You’ll notice that regardless of your browser’s width or height, or as you zoom in and out, the page responds by moving and shifting the key elements around to optimize your viewing experience based on the device used.  Here are screenshots of our front page taken in a browser followed by a smartphone:

Guidance for search with auto-suggest including auto-suggest

Now when you search we’ll provide auto-populated suggestions as text is inputted featuring various products, services and offers based on popularity of your search terms:

Easier ways to connect with us via Social Media and Live Chat

To make it easier for you to interact with us, ask questions or receive updates via social media we’ve provided additional access to our Twitter, YouTube and Google+ pages — as well as our RSS feed you can use to more easily stay informed.

…and ever-present links in the upper-right corner for social media & along the right-hand border for non-mobile “Chat” and “Contact us” links on all other pages that we hope you will find useful:
