New Website

 

Website upgrade! 

 

IRL Supplies is pleased to announce the introduction of our new fully mobile compatible website and site re-design for Summer 2017! www.irlsupplies.com

We have been working closely with our web design partner to make our new site design mobile compatible for use on smart phones and tablets in addition to computers.

While we were working through this process, we decided to take advantage of this time to upgrade the ‘look and feel’ of the site and improve on site navigation as well.

Key features of the new site are:

  • Compatibility with cell phones
  • Compatibility with tablets
  • Larger profile photos of all products
  • Smoother drop down menus for product navigation
  • New look and feel with a cleaner layout

We are excited to be rolling out this new design to the public on Wednesday July 12th!

As internet technologies have changed, so has how we do business, over the years IRL has seen numerous changes to our website with each bringing new and exciting updates.

Two and a half years ago we contracted out our website design & development with the want and desire to be able to offer you, our valued customer, a site where you could not only order online but also have access to all your account information. This new website is now is being used by dozens of account customers and hundreds of new customers as well.

However, Technology does not stand still of course so the past two months have seen us in the forefront of our industry again re-designing our website to make it fully mobile compatible for phones and tablets. While we were at it, we also took advantage of this opportunity to improve the looks and functionality of our website with new larger product photos, improved product menus and easier navigation, we think you will be pleased with the new design. To that end, our new site will be rolling out this week and as always we welcome your comments. Whether you need to check for a certain product or need to place an order, it is now possible to do so on your computer, phone or tablet!
