GreenPartners Web Site Enhanced
Syngenta Professional Products has recently enhanced its GreenPartners reward program Web site (www.greenpartnersonline.com) to provide a more-user-friendly shopping and ordering experience.
The Web site for the program, designed to thank customers for using Syngenta brands, now allows members to easily redeem their points for qualified rewards such as business tools, travel or donations to local associations.
The enhanced site is built much like an online store, providing members with 24/7 access to the program and their accounts. Upon logging in, members are provided with reward options and recommendations based upon their available point balance. For convenience and ease of use, fast order tracking, recent statement activity and donation guidelines are some of the new features associated with the new GreenPartners’ shopper-friendly Web site.
