I am designing a company website for a software company that has been around since 1995. Their current software is horrible and outdated, and so the company is in the process of creating a completely new, web-based application to replace the old one.
I have created a website page for the new software, and my boss wants to add some (B.S.) statements about the company directly on the product page, which relates to the business they had with the old software.
I worry that the lines about the company are not only ineffective, but confusing to put on a product page that is for a brand new product.
Introducing a brand new software that does [abc task]!
About Company: Company has supplied [abc task] software for 21 years! Company is the 3rd largest supplier of software for [abc task]!
I am unsure about the idea of adding info about the company to a product page- can't say I've seen any such thing on any competitors page - especially since it doesn't relate to the product in any way.
Is this actually a beneficial addition, and if not, are there any arguments against I can present to my boss?
