Komet USA Debuts New Customer-Centric Website
Komet USA, a provider of specialized dental instruments and accessories, has undertaken web development efforts on its main website to provide customers with a better user experience. The overhauled website launched Sept. 22.

Changes to the website are in direct alignment with Komet customers' desire to "do more online." A few key improvements to the website include: instant registration, an info center with product information and other materials, and an extended catalog.

The site was modified with appropriate keywords to make search queries more accurate, and the instant registration capability enables users to spend more time discovering the products they need and less time filling out forms. Most of Komet's catalog of products will be available for purchase on the site, which users gain access to as soon as they are registered. The new Komet Influencers section will profile dental practitioners throughout the United States. Combined with the new blog, which will discuss new products and company news, this new section will provide customers with different perspectives and information to foster learning and growth within the dental industry.
