Milwaukee® Device Refreshes ONE-KEY™ Program Web site

In case you consider the center part of the homepage because the physique part of an essay, it focuses on increasing three key factors (expounding on the “Customise. Monitor. Handle.” header promise to elucidate what we imply):  

  1. Customise: Within the ‘Customise’ part, we’ve included a subhead we’re fairly happy with: “Customise your linked expertise.” We imagine the One-Key platform gives finish customers with no matter expertise they want it to be. For instance, some customers might need to get as granular as setting a division, whereas others may need to use it to retailer all their paperwork. How you employ One-Key’s as much as you, and you may customise the expertise to your wants, your rising enterprise, and even use it to optimize the work you do while you reap the benefits of One-Key customization options on appropriate sensible instruments.  
  2. Monitor: The “Monitor” part was a vital half for us to expound on when looking for to resolve the misconceptions many customers have with One-Key monitoring. To do that, we’ve added an explainer part, reiterating that One-Key helps the business’s largest Bluetooth neighborhood, after which explaining what which means: We clarify that our Bluetooth community helps finish customers crowdsource gear finding, then we clarify 1) appropriate sensible instruments have Bluetooth performance constructed into them, 2) these Bluetooth modules enable for finish customers to hook up with their instruments, and three) finish customers can add Bluetooth monitoring performance to any merchandise by including a One-Key Bluetooth monitoring tag to that in any other case untracked merchandise. Moreover, we’ve included a help article we’ve written, which discusses how Bluetooth monitoring works, which finish customers can learn to get a deeper understanding than the high-level overview we’ve provided right here. Under this explainer part, we’ve additionally included a bit to present the instrument monitoring {hardware} we at the moment provide (e.g., Bluetooth monitoring tags and asset ID tags). 
  3. Handle: Lastly, the “Handle” part of the web page explains how One-Key can be utilized to streamline building stock and undertaking administration by providing a totally customizable expertise, multi-user permissioning to accommodate groups of all sizes, and information connectivity, integrations, and pilot packages to empower interdisciplinary collaboration.  

Closing Part 

The ultimate part of the web site features a last wrap-up of what has been mentioned, encouraging customers to “construct a extra linked jobsite” by signing up or downloading the app from the App Retailer or Google Play, adopted by consumer critiques, and an interactive product lineup part that may filter by product sort.  

The homepage redesign was a large endeavor which concerned vital remodeling and reorganization, as is evidenced above by how a lot time it took to elucidate all the things that has been modified.  

Now that we’ve mentioned the homepage, what else has been carried out?  

Enhanced Navigation and Wayfinding 

The One-Key web site has grown tremendously over the past three and a half years, however regardless of this progress, few customers have recognized the complete breadth of this web site.  

We’ve helped to deliver this breadth to the forefront by incorporating dropdown menus in our navigation that assist make clear simply how far the rabbit gap goes, because it have been. 


For instance, for “Related Instruments & Tools,” slightly than simply having a stationary button that customers press that directs them to a full itemizing of our merchandise, there’s now additionally a dropdown menu that reveals classes, which will be useful for instance at a high-level the breadth of product line we provide with One-Key compatibility.  

“Why One-Key?” Touchdown Web page and Redefined “Why One-Key?” Pages 

The subsequent stage down within the web site construction, “Why One-Key?”—the place we clarify on a deeper stage not simply what One-Key’s, however why customers would select to make use of it—has additionally been refreshed. 

“Why One-Key?” Touchdown Web page 

To start out, we’ve added a touchdown web page for this part of the web site, which, just like what the homepage does for the entire web site, we talk about at a excessive stage what might be mentioned in every of those subpages.  


Previous to this, the “Why One-Key?” pages have been all served up by way of an interactive menu, the place particular person icons “e.g., ‘Stock Administration’” could possibly be clicked and the web page would serve up the contents of these pages. Whereas this earlier iteration supplied fashionable web site performance, it didn’t provide a transparent pathway from the high-level info of a easy touchdown web page to the extra in-depth content material every subpage would talk about. Consequently, some customers weren’t even conscious that the buttons have been clickable.  

To repair this, we’ve created a transparent path:  

“Why One-Key?” –> “Why One-Key?” pages (Accessible Development Software program; Device and Tools Monitoring; Related Good Instruments & Units; Information & Integrations) 

“Why One-Key?” Pages 

After reviewing our consumer suggestions and collective soul looking out, we decided the previous model of the web site to have too many pages than have been obligatory.   

Aligning with what our One-Key advertising and marketing management crew has decided to be priorities, we’ve lower down what as soon as have been 5 pages to now 4 pages.  

Previous “Why One-Key?” pages 

  1. Crew Administration
  2. Locations Administration 
  3. Device Monitoring 
  4. Digital Stock 
  5. Related Instruments 

The content material of the 2 former pages, “Crew Administration” and “Locations Administration,” has been reworked and included all through the brand new model of the location. We felt that these pages, whereas their content material is true, don’t necessitate particular person pages, however slightly, their content material higher serves a leaner web site construction.
