The updated aesthetic is clean, bright and draws the eyes in with its sharp graphics. Demo videos are produced with a distinctive and engaging style that entertain as well as explain. Within its makeup is a powerful and fast search engine that navigates users to where they want to explore with an intuitive and responsive clickability. Understanding that customers do business on the go and expect multi-platform access, the new site is designed for mobile users as well. There’s also a new vertical expressly dedicated to tools in demand by fleet management professionals and their technicians, according to a press release.

“Our customers and their customers are busy people,” Tracer Products OEM and National Sales Manager Gary Testa says. “This redesign reflects what they want to see from us, our products and how we are capitalizing on our growth.”

Responding to the demands from vendors in emerging markets who want to add the Tracer brand to their SKU’s, the new multilingual feature makes the entire site and all its offerings available in Spanish, German, French and Chinese.
