American Home Shield (AHS), one of the nation’s leading providers of home warranties, has launched a new web site specifically for users of smartphones.

The mobile site’s content and ‘look and feel' caters to users of smartphones such as the Android, Blackberry, iPhone, or any mobile device with a web browser such as the iPad. It is designed specifically for the mobile experience, meaning it is easy to navigate using any mobile internet-enabled device.

“None of our major competitors have anything like this,” said Tony Roy, director of digital strategy for American Home Shield. “Today’s homeowners and consumers are busier than ever, and this release provides a convenient way for them to connect with American Home Shield or learn more about home warranties.”

Smartphone users who type ‘ahs.com’ in their browser users will be directed to the mobile site where they can be connected directly with American Home Sheild customer service, request a free quote, view frequently asked questions about home warranties, and more.

“The focus of today’s mobile site is to make it easier for our customers and prospective customers to reach us no matter where they are,” said Steve Burnett, senior vice president of sales and chief marketing officer for American Home Shield. “In the future, not only do we want to allow transactions on the site, but we’d like to add content for new products as well as for real estate professionals, contractors and others.”
