New design Sontay website is energy efficient with simple navigation

12 February 2008

Sontay, the market leader in control peripheral products, has introduced a fresh new look to its website at along with ease of navigation, a redesigned colour scheme and live customer support.

Changes were made to the website after Sontay consulted its customers and implemented a number of the comments it received. Site navigation was an important area in the re-design. The most popular sections are now in easy reach from the homepage, mostly with just one click. There are also added features such as the ‘live support pane’ which shows the status of all departments in one pane. The dropdown menus have also been reorganised with a new ‘downloads’ section which includes a wide range of Sontay datasheets and software updates.

Previously, the colours were changed annually to reflect the latest Sontay brochure. Now the site has a black scheme, making it stand out from Sontay’s competitors. This choice of colour offers other benefits too. Having a black website, rather than the usual white background, is also more energy efficient. It has recently been proven that companies can save energy with a black background because monitors require more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen (source:

“We wanted to ensure that the new design wouldn’t date too quickly. The re-design has been greeted very positively by our customers and should continue to look good and be user-friendly for a long time to come - as well as ensuring we stand out from other companies in our field” explains Stuart McSorley, MD of Sontay. “The Sontay website is now much easier to use, and the homepage is far more functional with all the main pages being just a click away.”

By visiting Sontay’s newly enhanced and extended website, customers can get hold of their copy of the new catalogue and CD, find out the latest product updates and look up their local sales contact. There are also a number of useful links such as conversion tools, distribution partners, commercial information and an interactive tour around the Sontay facility.
