CPA2BIZ DEBUTS REVAMPED SITECPA2Biz, the marketing and services portal of the American Institute of CPAs, has unveiled its next-generation Web site, a revamp that includes enhanced content organization and navigation tools, as well as less clutter and easier search capabilities.

The new design is the culmination of a two-year redesign effort, according to CPA2Biz president and chief executive Erik Asgeirsson.

The new left navigation bar allows a user to browse the site by type of product or topic, or view additional resources. Users can also compare products and CPE courses on the Web site, change the size of the site's text, e-mail an article to a colleague, and search the company's conference listings by topic, location or date. They also can purchase products from the site without being a registered user.

Asgeirsson said that CPA2Biz has made more than 200 free articles available on the site and hosts more than 100,000 unique visitors every month, with roughly 6 percent of those visitors making purchases. - Liz Gold
