ActiveAid Unveils New Logo and Website

ActiveAid Unveils New Logo and Website

ActiveAid has unveiled its new brand logo and identity alongside a new website. ActiveAid has been in business for more than 50 years and the brand has been updated, modified in the past and this new logo and identity takes cues from previous designs while modernizing the look and feel. The new ActiveAid website is a huge leap forward from a usability and customer experience standpoint. More information, better organization and standardized product specifications will help customers find information faster and learn more about the products than ever before.

Another great customer-focused feature that was made possible by the new site – dynamic product configurators. Customers can now create a custom configuration and request a quote directly from the site without having to call customer service or fill out a paper order form. The site provides an MSRP quote instantly, but existing customers can fill out the short form at the bottom of the configurator to request a quote.

Every product has an individual product page with an “Options” tab that displays every option available for that unit. Each option has its own information page too – providing the customer as much information as possible prior to making purchasing decisions. Updated literature, standardized specifications and multiple images and videos are available for all products. View the new logo and website at activeaid.com
