A wind of change in the ISA-shop


More efficient product search and a new and clearly arranged design provide additional benefit for the specialist dealer.


How can the search for articles be made more efficient for our clients? This question was raised in the ISA-development team of Menke Agrar in the past few weeks. In  the new ISA-shop you can see the result.


For the product search there is from now on only one central input box with quite some technical know-how as it facilitates an intelligent search: No matter whether you put in article denominations, ORGAtop-/article numbers or product terms, you get shown a suitable range of articles shortly. Even when you only know parts of a number (the first or last digits or enclosed digits of an article number) or search with parts of product terms, our system shows product propositions.


With a quick overview menu (drop-down) the 20 best hits will be shown - the search term or the digits you used will be highlighted in the results. Also the inclusion of product depictions and producer logo will relieve a quick identification of the requested article. It is also new that the client can see those products s/he was searching for last. Our conclusion: the search for spare and accessory parts in the ISA-shop is clearly simpler, quicker and with great accuracy, simply more userfriendly.


The new layout of the ISA facilitates the user to orientate better on the website. The central search function is located above the product display.The shopping basket and the weekly changing top products were placed in the upper third of the page. All interesting facts about the topics "News in the product range", "special offers", "new arranged brochures", "newsworthy training course dates etc. you find as usualon our starting page.
