Pegasus Lighting Debuts Mobile Website

Pegasus Lighting Mobile WebsiteBEAVER FALLS, PA, May 13 – As smartphones continue to become an integral part of the shopping process, consumer data proves mobile-friendly websites are increasingly valuable. In fact, a recent study from Google indicated that 79% of smartphone owners use their mobile devices to shop, whether that involves researching a product, comparing prices, or making a direct purchase.

On April 27, Pegasus Lighting launched a mobile version of their e-commerce website ( The lighting retailer presence in the mobile space is surprisingly sparse. Pegasus Lighting saw an opportunity to offer online shoppers the convenience of a site designed specifically for smartphones while still providing the full feature-set from its main website. This includes extensive product information, product reviews, FAQs, and a dedicated Help section.

The mobile site is especially valuable for Pegasus Lighting’s many repeat business customers, who are often in the field. These customers can log into their accounts, check order statuses, review past orders, and place future orders all in the palms of their hands.

The announcement comes a year after the launch of the company’s Lighting Library app, which has received positive reviews among professionals and consumers alike. The free iPhone app offers a glossary of over 100 everyday lighting terms.

As Seen on TV: Our Xenon Light Strip

Have you ever seen a cove lighting installation in action?  Our xenon low voltage strip was featured on the DIY network TV show Rescue Renovation!  The episode features a young man who bought his first home from 1000 miles away.  Needless to say, it turned out to be quite a “fixer-upper.”

In this clip, you’ll see the Rescue Renovation team coming in to help.  They use the light strip behind crown molding to accentuate the home’s original cove ceiling.  View the video after the jump! (more…)

The NEW Pegasus Lighting

Pegasus LightingIn case you haven’t heard, our new website launched yesterday morning!  We are extremely excited about the redesign.  To those of you who weighed in on the initial design templates a few months ago: We incorporated many features into the site based on your feedback.  To those of you who haven’t seen the templates at all: We would love to hear what you think now!

Here are just a few things you can expect to see from now on at Pegasus Lighting…

  • Improved Product Images. Check out our Xenon Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights to get an idea of just how detailed our new images are.  You can view up to 15 images for each product and you can even zoom, rotate and pivot many of the images.
  • A Sleeker Design. Our font is bigger, our pages are wider, and the overall look is cleaner – all in an effort to make the site more user-friendly.
  • Top Navigation Bar. We moved our navigation bar to a drop-down menu on the top of the site.
  • A Smoother Shopping Experience. Three new sections will appear while you are shopping: Related Items, You Might Also Like, and Recently Viewed Items.
  • Product Reviews. Every product page will feature a tab showing 1-5 star ratings and written reviews from other customers.

Let us know in the comments section: What do you think of the new site so far?
