RICHFIELD, Ohio — PCT is excited to announce that we have revamped www.pctonline.com with new technology to help our visitors streamline their social media use and provide them with a more interactive online experience. Here’s a quick look at some of the enhancements.

GIGYA. In response to the growing popularity of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, PCTOnline now includes Gigya social login, which allows our visitors to more easily share (and comment about) PCT content throughout the Web. Users can log onto PCTOnline via their preferred social media platform, then comment, like, or distribute any content on PCTOnline simultaneously across all of their social networks. To share content from PCT, simply click on the social media icons (such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn avatars) located within stories and/or multimedia content on PCTOnline..

More APP-accessible. The site now has more of a traditional newspaper look, featuring black text on a white background. Why did we choose this color scheme? We wanted to make the site more reader-friendly for our users viewing PCTOnline on handheld devices such as iPhones. Another design change was the addition of navigation bars to the left-hand column of the homepage. This makes it easier for PCT’s visitors to quickly access the website’s most visited pages.

The Pulse. Quickly find out what the pest control industry is talking about on social media websites by accessing The Pulse. Located in the bottom right-hand corner on the PCTOnline homepage, the Pulse includes tabs to PCT’s Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Expanded news coverage. PCTOnline has long been the go-to source for the best, up-to-date news coverage on issues impacting the structural pest control industry. Our newly designed website includes enhanced coverage that is easily accessible from the PCT Online homepage. The top five stories on the site now are illustrated with photos or images and even more news stories are categorized on the homepage.

Easier multimedia access. PCTOnline’s multimedia files — which include videos, podcasts, Webinars, slideshows — can now be accessed from the PCTOnline homepage. Simply visit PCTOnline's homepage and click on any of the three multimedia tabs (Videos, Sponsored or Podcasts) to find the file you are seeking.

We’d love to hear your feedback. Please send any comments to bharbison@gie.net.
