Keurig has recently unveiled a new design for Keurig.com. It's fresh. It's clean, and most importantly it's really user friendly. We love the comparison wizard, and the store locator is also really well done. Congrats on the big relaunch of Keurig.com and check out the highlights below.

New Keurig.com highlights include:

  • New look and feel that reflects the Keurig brand.
  • Enhanced search allowing consumers to easily find their favorite K-Cup® portion packs by refining their search by options such as brand, roast and type highlighted visually through beautiful K-Cup artwork or by using the keyword search at the top of every page.
  • New comparison tools: Use the new drag and drop brewer comparison wizard for a side-by-side comparison of brewer features and specifications to find the perfect fit.
  • Store locator: Positioned within the site to make it as easy as possible to purchase Keurig products online or at thousands of retail locations in both the U.S. and Canada.
  • Consumer engagement tools including product ratings and review, and a social media share bar integrated into the website to streamline sharing consumer product passion on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels.
  • Fun and interactive experience: Visit the Explore area to review and print delicious recipes, view product demos, indulge in love letters from fans and learn about seasonal offerings (Note: Make sure you look for the “tree”!)
  • Improved loyalty program: Keurig’s Coffee Club program awards 1 point for every K-Cup purchased on Keurig.com, starting with the first order. There are now expanded ways for the more than 1 million online members to redeem points and it is easy to trade in points for 50% off a selection of products.

Keurig Unveils Newly Re-Designed Keurig.com

New Website Makes Finding Keurig Products Easy, Dynamic and Fun

READING, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Keurig®, Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. and the leading dollar sales brand of coffeemakers in the U.S, today unveils its new website, reinforcing its brand positioning as the leader in coffee brewing and single-cup brewing systems.

“The new site transforms the Keurig consumer experience online for our more than 1 million monthly visitors”

“The new site transforms the Keurig consumer experience online for our more than 1 million monthly visitors”, said Tammy Hegarty, Keurig Director of Consumer Direct and Digital Marketing, “and makes it easier for consumers to explore the Keurig brand, learn about and shop over 250 K-Cup® portion pack varieties including gourmet coffee, tea, hot cocoa and other specialty beverages while comparing and contrasting an array of Keurig single-cup brewing systems to discover the products that are perfect for them.” The new site also makes it even easier to engage and participate in the community of Keurig enthusiasts with social sharing tools.

The creative vision and function that a new website demands can seem overwhelming without the collaborative thought of strategic partners.

“We had the pleasure of working side-by-side with both Brand Content and Competitive Computing (C2), to make our dream a reality,” Hegarty noted. “Brand Content’s mission was to innovate and convey a multi-channel brand experience with the clear intention of capturing the undeniable presence of the Keurig brand in stores, on television, in the office and at home while C2 had to skillfully integrate these objectives into a functioning, scalable and intuitive e-Commerce product. Clearly, their contributions were successful.”

“It was important for us to introduce a revitalized design that seamlessly complemented the Keurig brand. Simple, elegant, fresh and intuitive are among the attributes we worked toward as we developed the site,” said Doug Gladstone, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Brand Content. “We felt that Keurig.com should reflect the Keurig brand and be the hallmark of the brand in the interactive space. The newly launched Keurig.com clearly embodies this.”

Carolyn Edwards, CEO of C2, commented, “The integration of content management and e-commerce technology enables Keurig to provide its customers a rich, multi-brand shopping experience. It was a delicate dance between function and aesthetic that allowed us to help create a website that can scale to meet the needs of the growing company while still staying pace with advances in on-line technologies.”

The new site design strengthens Keurig’s long-standing leadership position in both customer service and e-commerce. In fact, Keurig has greater than 90 percent customer satisfaction ratings on its top models. In May 2010, Keurig was named the #5 e-tailer for customer satisfaction by the ForeSee Top 100 Online Retail Satisfaction Index.
