A 3D configurator that automatically generates quotations.
COS (Complete Offering System) is a web-based software, linked to the product catalogue, which enables economic offers to be generated for Busway systems.
IAM needed to simplify, standardise and above all speed up the creation of economic offers, avoiding the use of complex technical CAD software.
Mònade has developed a web app that, through a 3D configurator, allows anyone to independently design plant lines, automatically generating the quote with the details of the products required.
The 3D configurator is the core of the project. The model is built with products from the catalogue that are compatible with the features of the selected line, automatically associated as the design is created. Joints - T-joints, L-joints, diagonal or terminal joints - can be quickly inserted and modified as required. Advanced features allow you to duplicate, cut or modify the path of already designed lines.
COMPLETE OFFERING SYSTEM
In addition to the 3D configurator, with COS the company also achieved the goal of digitising the product catalogue and customer master data, in order to have structured and easily accessible data.
The article codification has also been standardised, to make the catalogue management easier among different product families.
USER EXPERIENCE & USER INTERFACE
Such an ambitious software required a thorough UX/UI study to make it as easy and intuitive as possible.
In the 3D configurator, a layered sidebar allows all the elements of the drawing to be seen, while contextual menus, drag and drop and shortcuts make the necessary actions immediate to the user.
COS has considerably reduced the workload of the Engineering Department, which spends about 80% of its time on these study and estimation activities.
Thanks to an offer storage database, with a status assignment system, the company can count on a more agile activity management and simplify production planning and warehouse management with consequent optimisation of delivery time to final customers.
The COS software also has the possibility of being distributed to an external sales network, obtaining a more ramified presence in the market sector.
