“In an industry that’s constantly changing and increasingly competitive, we feel compelled to empower our customers with unmatched resources in an effort to help ensure their success. This new Web site is just one way we are leveraging technology to the direct benefit of our customers,” said Chris Mellon, president and ceo.
Maines will use this Web site as an interactive communication tool to convey important information about its business as well as about the industry. Platforms are in place to encourage feedback from users, as well.
According to an announcement on maines.net, the site provides information customized for both the broadline street sales customer as well as the chain distribution customer. Professional photography is used extensively to showcase the company’s products, capabilities and services.
In addition, the site has an interactive database-driven newsroom and it interfaces seamlessly with the employee zone and the proprietary eMaines customer ordering system. Mellon said Maines will continue adding new features and functionality to the Web site, as well as maximize usability by tapping into the strengths of social networking and online media in the coming months.
