Hunter Douglas Europe Customers Locate Retailers With ChannelNet's Multi-Country Locator

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) - Taking advantage of the growing trend of Europeans searching online for home improvement products, ChannelNet helped Hunter Douglas Europe upgrade its corporate dealer locator to create an easier and more flexible tool for customers that is powered by Google Maps. The upgrade provides a state-of-the-art solution that displays dealer locations across European countries served by Hunter Douglas. Hunter Douglas, based in the Netherlands, sells high-end, residential custom window fashions worldwide under the brand name Luxaflex in Europe.

With ChannelNet's Dealer Locator Hunter Douglas Europe brand administrators and country managers have the ability to set the default radius for Hunter Douglas dealer locations, configurable by country. Additionally, Hunter Douglas has the ability to set the number of dealer listings by dealer type, customizable for each country. Web site locator search results for "Where to Buy / Finding a Showroom" include a variety of locator pin colors to designate different types of dealers and pin tool tips that include dealer contact information, link to dealer web sites, and driving directions in the language the shopper prefers.

"Hunter Douglas shoppers have greater flexibility, whatever country they live in," says Scott Engstrom, ChannelNet Director of Global Programs.
