Great news! We’ve now completed a major refresh of both our company website and our online store.
‘Our main aim was to improve overall usability for our customers, while ensuring the sites work well on a wide range of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets’, Web and Graphic Designer James Barsby told us. ‘From a visual design perspective, we’ve made the sites more intuitive by combining strong colours with clear, easy-to-read typefaces.’
The Coinadrink website includes a new drop-down menu system designed to accommodate our ever-expanding range of machines. There’s a wealth of information available, which we believe will prove to be a valuable resource for our existing customers – as well as those interested in installing new equipment. ‘We’ve structured the site in such a way that you can find what you need quickly, without having to hunt through over-complicated menus’, James said. ‘By paying careful attention to the wording of text and product descriptions, the site is now much easier to find in popular search engines, such as Google.’
2017 marks a significant milestone for Coinadrink.
On 2 February, we’ll be celebrating our 55th birthday and even as we’ve been planning how we’ll celebrate and commemorate this auspicious event, my mind has been taking me back to the world as it was when first we opened for business.
Much as I’d like to think otherwise, the foundation of Coinadrink doesn’t quite make it into the list of 1962’s Top Ten events! We didn’t realise it at the time, but 1962 was an eventful year; one which would have an enduring impact on the world.
When we opened for business, Harold Macmillan was PM and according to him, ‘we’d never had it so good’. I suppose he had a point: inflation was low, at just 1.1% and pretty much everybody was in work. The average price of a house was £2,670 – although such a sum would have bought you something pretty impressive in Walsall – and the average wage was £799 a year. A pint of milk cost 1/4d (that’s 6.5p in ‘new’ money!) and a pint in the pub would set you back 2/4d, (11.5p).
Facilities Management 2017 is much more than just a trade show – it’s a melting pot of innovation and ideas that attracts senior decision makers and key influencers from all over the UK. And no wonder: alongside a host of exhibitors there’s an impressive array of educational content. So, whatever sector you come from – industry, education or public sector – if you’re in FM, Facilities Management 2017 really is a ‘must attend’ event.
Here at Coinadrink, there’s mounting excitement as we await the arrival of two exciting new machines that are guaranteed to add a certain pizazz to our beverage offer, bringing you even more choice. Let’s take a look…
