Published: Jul 19, 2017
MELVILLE, N.Y., July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc., (Nasdaq: HSIC) today unveiled a newly designed website for Henry Schein Medical (www.henryschein.com/medical), the company's medical division, and announced an improved e-commerce solution with a streamlined and more efficient ordering process for dental, animal health, and medical customers.
The new Henry Schein Medical website is a continuation of the company's strategy of using digital technology to enhance the practitioner's journey. The company launched newly designed websites for Henry Schein Dental, Zahn Dental Laboratories and Henry Schein Special Markets in February 2017, and for Henry Schein Animal Health two months later.
As a platform, henryschein.com has been completely refreshed with a contemporary look and feel designed to enrich the user experience. The new websites, along with the suite of e-commerce solutions, were informed by customer feedback, which contributed to making common online tasks and the overall ordering process more efficient and seamless. Dental, animal health, and medical customers can expect a simple, intuitive user experience that is fully accessible across all devices and screen sizes. The improvements will make it easier for customers to efficiently maneuver through the website while also gaining access to the many technology, clinical, business, and supply chain solutions Henry Schein has to offer.
The e-commerce enhancements apply to all divisions of Henry Schein and include:
- Filtering by attributes for fast, intuitive search. Customers now have the ability to filter search results by specific product attributes such as size, color, and manufacturer.
- Product comparison for easy and accurate product selection. The standardization of product descriptions and the option to compare up to five products side-by-side as well as view all product specifications (similarities and differences). Items can also be added to a user's shopping cart directly from the comparison page.
- Four levels of product categorization for more focused browsing. Product catalogs have been optimized to ensure customers can see all available options and purchase the product that fits their exact needs.
- Refinement of menu options. Key components are now located within the navigation bar for easy identification.
"The new medical website is part of Henry Schein's digital transformation and represents our commitment to create an exceptional customer experience for health practitioners," said Bridget A. Ross, President, Global Medical Group, Henry Schein. "We are dedicated to providing customers with expert guidance that enables the best quality patient care and increased efficiency and productivity.
