3D configurators are the perfect platform for facilitating a frictionless relationship with customers from prospect to sale. Most of our clients use our 3D configurators as their primary point of lead generation and sales. By highlighting the configurator with a Call to Action (CTA) such as "Design your Own Shed," they capture the designs, quotes and orders from customers at all hours of the day.
We have also seen salespeople use our configurators with potential customers, either in person at a physical retail location, over the phone, or online.
Finally, it's possible to use our configurators internally as a way to place and manage orders between dealers and manufacturers.
An exact replica of your real-life buildings. 3D configurators are meant to get your buildings sold, not overcomplicate the buying process with confusing features and messy UI. As a result, IdeaRoom's configurators are not endlessly customizable. We guarantee configuration, not one-off development projects that take months to implement : )
IdeaRoom has a robust library of features and functionality that supports roughly 95% of all building styles and options. It's easy for us to represent you styles, pricing and basic building features.
Sometimes, complex features and customization are needed (think corner porches with complex railings and wall footprints). That's ok! This may just take a bit more time to code into your configurator.
On rare occasions, clients ask for an advanced custom feature that is not currently supported on our platform. At IdeaRoom, we are dedicated to growing with the industries we support, so when enough vendors ask for a complicated feature (think cupolas), we lay out a roadmap and get it developed.
For the most successful launch, we recommend getting a simplified first release done as quickly as possible so that you can start learning from your customers. The faster you get online, the faster you will start seeing the benefits.
Don't worry about minor details. Represent the key elements of your inventory. We've found that customers don't care about the little things, and that the more options you present the more delayed a consumer's decision making process is likely to be. Keep it simple!
You can have a configurator in as few as three weeks. The speed of your project will depend on how communicative you are with your CS agent and the complexity of your product line. All subscriptions will begin no more than 2 months after the agreed upon onboarding start date.
Things that can speed up the onboarding process are clear-cut price sheets, compiling lists of required changes in one place, and a general understanding that we are building you an online sales tool (not a carbon copy of your physical lot).
A lot! Any issue that prevents you from selling successfully online is flagged as "critical". We will respond within 24 hours to anything that prevents customers from using your configurator.
We're also here to help provide ongoing updates to styles, pricing, and other business needs as they relate to your product line. Depending on level of effort, we can generally add or remove options to your configurator within 2 - 3 weeks.
