Transformed TABC Website Offers Improved User Experience, Access to Public Records
AUSTIN — A top-to-bottom redesign of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission’s public website has gone live, offering users vastly improved search capabilities, the ability to download application forms, and quick and easy access to public information.
The new site, which launched today, is the result of a more than nine-month redesign process that relied on feedback from agency employees, state lawmakers and members of the alcoholic beverage industry. The site is also fully optimized for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, making it easier for users to access important TABC functions and information on the go.
“When designing the new site, we counted on feedback from the people who use the site the most — alcoholic beverage industry members,” TABC Executive Director Bentley Nettles said. “Their input allowed us to build a website that provides a vastly better experience for industry veterans as well as everyday Texans.”
The redesign is the first phase of several planned changes to the TABC website, Nettles added. Future updates will add increased functionality, including the ability to apply for a new TABC license or permit online.
“As the alcoholic beverage industry continues to modernize and reinvent itself, so must TABC,” Nettles said. “This website is another step forward in our mission of providing the very best customer service to the 29 million Texans we serve. I’m grateful to our team and our industry partners for all of their hard work in making the new website a reality. We’re especially pleased that the transformed website makes it easier to learn more about TABC assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m hopeful all affected businesses will use the site to take advantage of the many services we can offer.”
