Betech

Introduction

Betech are Dunedin’s only NZ-owned and operated engineering supply company. They work alongside many local businesses supplying them with their bearings, tools, power transmission, welding, pneumatics, lubricants, abrasives, and safety equipment.

If you are ever in the position of thinking, 'What I need is a thing that does this', give Betech a call and they’ll help you figure out exactly what you need.

Creative Brief

When Betech came to Turboweb, their existing website was quite a number of years old. It had been an okay design for the time, but that time had come and gone.

What Betech needed from their new website was a way for customers to really see the huge range of stock and supplies that they dealt with. They wanted to make it easy for customers to contact them with any questions or request a quote. And they wanted their website to feel like their business – friendly, professional, hard-working, and up for a bit of banter now and then.

Website

With over 85,000 items in stock, the “Services” part of the website is where Betech really gets into the nitty gritty of what they do. Turboweb arranged for professional on-site photography for Betech’s site, and the resulting footage of the warehouse and showroom makes these pages shine.

Betech also wanted a Resources page for their site, and the Simple Web Manager's Downloads module was perfect for this. This module allows the website owner to upload documents like PDFs and display them in a gallery for people to browse. This means that Betech has got a way to share sales catalogues with their clients, as well as somewhere to upload handy documents like safety data sheets or other resources in the future.

One element of the site that Betech is using well is the Latest News feature. This module comes standard with every Turboweb website build, but it is sometimes hard for business owners to envisage how to use it. Since their new website went online earlier this year, Betech have added two news items to their site, keeping that front page looking fresh and giving their clients more insight into their company and what they can do. It doesn’t need much: just a great photo and a sentence or two is all.
