Woodstock Percussion, Inc., makers of the world-famous Woodstock Chimes® and the award-winning Woodstock Music Collection®, partnered with Whereoware to re-design and enhance its website, www.chimes.com. The re-designed Website brings the unique sounds of Woodstock to life online. Focusing on Woodstock’s customers, the site features easy ways to browse and interact with products, a state of the art shopping experience and loads of multimedia features.
“Consumers cherish the quality of our products, their fine tuning and superior sound quality. We wanted our website to immerse them in the sounds of Woodstock,” said, Woodstock Percussion’s Founder / Owner Garry Kvistad. “Incorporating the sounds of each instrument, plus inserting video directly into the shopping experience, lets our customers have that experience.”
Woodstock’s diverse products presented the challenge of providing customers with multiple ways to shop. Rather than force all customers to shop one way, Whereoware worked with Woodstock to structure the product content and shopping experience from multiple perspectives. The result is a dynamic user-orientated Website that is still easy to understand and navigate. Customers can shop by product type, sound or gift idea. Plus, the multimedia pieces are worked directly into the product information. Anytime a customer finds a product they can easily hear and view the instrument in action without having to search any further.
