With dozens of global sales locations and hundreds of global distributor locations, our old way of listing everywhere you could find Samtec was getting a bit cumbersome.
This new version of our locations page puts this application on a page of its own and upgrades it from a text-based version to a fully interactive map, complete with geo-IP lookup features, as well as search and filtering features.
New Locations Search Features
The first thing you’ll notice about this application is the huge full-screen interactive map.
The map is clickable, draggable, and features essentially all of the features you know and love about Google Maps.
As long as you allow browser location tracking, (don’t get mad that the map won’t find your location if you don’t), you’ll start off with the map centered where your IP address resolves. Typically, this is pretty accurate, unless you’re using a proxy connection.
To prevent from overwhelming the user, the map will start with Samtec Sales and Manufacturing locations, so if you’re looking for anything else, you’ll want to use the filters on the left side.
In this area, you’ll notice several helpful features, such as categories and global regions of the world.
You’ll also notice that tabs other than the Corporate tab feature dropdowns that will allow you to select a state or province, as well as filter by Sales, Distributors, or both.
Within these areas, you can also click on the shaded cells to move the map to that area.
There is a small amount of information listed on the search panel itself, with the remainder listed inside the pin on the map.
Just use the tools on the left to zero-in, and then click the pin that applies to you. It’s as simple as that.
