3D configuration makes your products come alive

What is already an established standard for consumer goods is becoming increasingly important for capital goods as well. Existing and prospective customers value transparency more than ever, and want to know what they are getting right from the start. With a 2D or 3D visualisation integrated into your product configurator, you can easily fulfil this wish. Regardless of whether a prospective customer configures this on a laptop or tablet together with your sales team, or alone in the webshop, they immediately get a picture of their individual solution or product variant.

Benefits at a glance:

Understand complex products better

Visualisation simplifies complex configurations. Individual parts and components can be easily placed in a given space or casing using drag-and-drop. The product model generated can be interactively rotated, scaled and moved. Based on parametric 3D models, you can already see during product configuration how selected options and parameters visually affect the solution. Thanks to the defined rules of the configurator and integrated CAD models and data, the feasibility is also guaranteed at all times. Customer-specific tested products, systems or plants are thus created before the eyes of your customers.

Selling more successfully

Enhancing the configuration with a visualisation provides your sales force with a compelling selling point and creates individual customer experiences for all aspects of your portfolio. Real-time abstract technical data becomes tangible and understandable. And customer-specific solutions already start to take shape during the sales process. This creates trust and supports the purchasing decision, because the more convincingly and realistically you present your products, the more of them you will sell.
