New website launched for leading stairlift provider

clip_image002We are very pleased to have launched a new website for one of the region’s leading independent stairlift companies. Obam Stairlifts supplies stairlifts, hoists, ramps, through floor and platform lifts.

Commenting on the launch, Web Project Manager Matt Rayner said:

“We’re delighted with how the website has turned out. We trimmed down the number of pages on the website to allow for easy navigation by visitors. Rather than focusing on individual product pages, we decided to give an overview of the services and products required which would result in the next logical action – to get in touch.

“We improved the styling, design and usability of the website from a user perspective while still retaining the ability for Obam to be able to edit the website themselves with new content like images and be able to update their FAQ’s and testimonials. We also utilised Obam’s photoshoot specific shots to give the website a more personalised feel”.

There will be a free tier with an extremely generous usage allowance before any charges apply.

However, Google will now require your billing details - even within the free tier.
