New Tools Make it Easier Than Ever To Work With Chief! Updated Website, Dealer Login and Online Print Program

Minneapolis, MN. - - (July 2006) - - Chief® Manufacturing, the industry leader in mounting solutions, is excited to announce a newly designed company website, and the release of two new service programs geared toward making it easier than ever to do business with Chief!


The new website offers the same simple navigation and functionality features, but also offers some great new enhancements. The popular cross -reference tool now automatically updates four times a day, making it easier than ever to find the right mount for your screen! A "New Products" tab on the homepage will make it simple to find all of the new mounting innovations Chief has to offer. You'll even see which accessories best fit with the product you select. And now you can easily search the entire site with an advanced key word search. But that's just the beginning, coming soon you'll find animations, training videos, an architect corner and more.

With the new Dealer Login, launching August 2006, dealers and distributors will be able to securely view transactions, ordering information, delivery schedule and account information online. Dealers will be able to access the password -protected program through the new Chief website.

Also, launching in August, the Online Print Program will allow dealers to customize product sell sheets with their own company logo, address, contact information and pricing. The final customized piece can be ordered online and will ship directly to the dealer or distributor at their cost. Three sell sheet templates will be available for customization with more to come in the future.

These resources are just a few of Chief's new customer service tools to make doing business more efficient for dealers and distributors. As always, Chief's expertly trained Customer Service team is available to answer any questions, from technical issues to order tracking.
