The Leadbox core website team is excited to announce the release of 5.2 for the Leadbox website platform!
This release includes:
Let’s take a look!
While we do live in a mobile first world, we must not forget that many people still look for vehicles on desktops. Theme 3 optimizes for desktop view by taking advantage of the landscape orientation of desktop and laptop screens.
Theme 3 offers a stacked, sticky side navigation (rather than a horizontal top navigation) and allows for full width content to fill the entire screen.
This allows Theme 3 to fill the entire screen with content while still maintaining a constant location for navigation.
Fear not, while Theme 3 is optimized for the desktop viewing, we have retained our mobile viewing optimization as well.
Inspired by Erinwood Ford, the new vertical filter allows shoppers to preview some filter options before selecting. This makes it easier for shoppers to quickly get to the top options.
Every filter now has vehicle counts beside each option. This allows shoppers to see how many vehicles match that description before they click on it. By doing so, we create a faster search experience for the shopper.
The core payment calculator has been redesigned to promote easier reading. While the fields and functions of the calculator has not changed, all the input fields have been moved to the left hand side and all of the calculated results have been moved to the right hand side.
By making these changes, we streamline and improve the shopper’s experience with the calculator.
Next release we are continue to focus on UX and polish.
We are looking into how to add more functionality for dealers to see a shopper’s browsing behaviour by adding some shopper centric items.
We’d love to get more suggestions. If you got some please provide your feedback here:
