Electronic information delivery — through digital magazines, e-newsletters, Websites, RSS feeds, etc. — is essential to the modern business world. Global and instant availability via the Internet has made information accessible, useful, and impactful in a way as momentous as the advent of the printing press. SMT is redesigning our Website, smtonline.com, to better fit you, our readers. While we engineer this Website, we’d like to hear what you want.
We’ve organized our technical features into focused categories, where you can find an article about lead-free rework easily, and click straight from that article into a section about cleaning residues from lead-free assemblies. All the while you’ll have recent news and product releases updated daily and accessible throughout the Website. The goal is to make information as easily accessed as if you had editors sitting with you, suggesting an article to meet your needs.
SMT usually polls its readers about industry challenges, such as lead-free, or business direction, such as capital equipment investments. Today, we want to know how you use the Internet, and what you’d like to see on the new-and-improved smtonline.com. Click through to our survey, “What do you want more of on smtonline.com?” and let us know what you want. We’ll keep the survey open through to the launch date of the new SMT Website, incorporating as many of your suggestions as possible. Got an idea for the site that isn’t on the survey?
