The expanded health care product offering is just one way CWI Medical has worked to update its website and enhance the user experience for its customers. The company is rolling out several new features, including an upgraded menu and site navigation; a guest checkout system to allow non-members to purchase items online; a product review system to allow members to review and rate the site’s product offerings; and expanded shipping options to allow international shipping to customers in Canada and Puerto Rico. These features will be available in the first week of February 2014.
