      Educational Institute Launches New Website for Hospitality Training Programs

      March 2013, Orlando, Florida - The American Hotel &  Lodging Educational Institute (EI) launched a new website on March 26, 2013.


      The mobile-friendly site, at www.ahlei.org, features a fresh look and feel with easier navigation to help visitors find hospitality learning solutions, training programs, and professional certification information quickly and efficiently.

      The new site includes updated social  media features and an automatic translation tool with more than 60 language  options to enable EI's global customers to browse the website in their own  language.  It also features a new "Articles" section with detailed content about EI programs and information of interest to  the hospitality industry.

      Customers who had previously set up an  account with EI's online store will need to renew their registration and account information to order products from the  website's new e-commerce platform.

      "Building  the new site gave us the perfect opportunity to take a hard look at what our customers' site needs were and how they were using the current websites, so we  could create an enjoyable and more streamlined customer experience. Using new  technologies and design practices, namely responsive web design, we feel we  have done just that and we are very excited about the launch," said Joshua Sumption, CHS, CMHS, EI's chief technology officer.

      The  launch of the new website, which offers quick and easy access to essential information about EI's products and services, is part of  the organization's ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and availability of information to members and hospitality professionals worldwide.
