Thief River Falls, Minnesota (USA) — November 5, 2009 — Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced the launching of a newly redesigned version of its toolbar.
Redesigned with busy design engineers, purchasers, and electronic enthusiasts in mind, the new version of Digi-Key's Toolbar allows for additional customization. Features include quick access to each of Digi-Key's 25 country-specific websites and eight language options, giving the user the ability to choose his preferred language without affecting the Digi-Key country site he is searching or any of his other computer/browser settings. Additionally, a user can display the functions he uses most in his toolbar as well as customize the appearance of buttons and the order in which they appear.
The new toolbar also features new search capabilities that provide a seamless interaction with Digi-Key's part search, immediate access to a user's My Digi-Key page, a complete listing of Digi-Key's extensive product listing categories, one-click access to its line card, and access to Digi-Key's training and technology tools through the use of the new Resources menu.
Downloading the Digi-Key Toolbar is quick and easy. Information, which includes instructions for both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox installation, can be found at www.digikey.com/toolbar. Links to the toolbar landing page are also located on the homepage at digikey.com as well as the landing pages of all of Digi-Key's 24 other country-specific websites.
"The redesign of our toolbar was in direct response to feedback from our customers," said Tony Harris, Digi-Key vice president, e-Commerce. "The goal of our toolbar is to help customers derive the most from our websites from anywhere on the Internet. It's all about making their jobs easier, and when it comes to improvements, who better to suggest them than the design engineers and purchasing agents who are using them?"
