"The new website comes as a direct result of customer input," says Jeff Kussard, Capitol's Strategic Development Director. "They asked for a simple to navigate, content -rich site that allows them quick and easy access to relevant technical and marketing materials, multimedia training and product demos, and input from Capitol's team of technology experts. It all adds up to an important and highly efficient system for accelerating communications between ourselves and the customers with whom we work every single day." site features a clean, crisp design that visually ties in with the company's recently updated logo. However, what makes the site truly beneficial to the customer base is the technology underneath the surface. The site utilizes a database -driven platform that expedites access to the information they need. The new website offers direct communication between Capitol and its dealers. Company executives will contribute to a blog that addresses all aspects of the residential and commercial sides of technology installation and integration. (A screen capture follows.)

Added Kussard: "We designed the new has to be the best site of the distribution side of the custom installation business. Of course, we made it easy to learn about the products we offer, but we added - and will continue to add enough information to fill an encyclopedia on the CI market. We won't stop until it is the #1 online resource of its kind."
