5 ways our 3D Planner will boost your business
In the competitive business environment of today success depends on going that little further for customers. This can take many forms. But one of the most important of these is in making the purchasing decision a little easier to make.
Luckily, for any business that is involved in balustrade design whether in the domestic or the commercial sector, our 3D Planner is an essential tool that can do exactly that. We developed the software working in close collaboration with experts in the field. The result is a piece of software that is essential whether you’re an architecture practice or a suppler and fitter of balustrades.
But it’s more than simply a handy business tool. Our balustrade design software will help to secure more sales and make the whole process from designing and quoting to invoicing a smooth process that relies on minimum effort and input to be successful.
There are five clear ways that the 3D balustrade planner will make a tangible difference to your business – and they’re as follows.
Generate more leads
Leads are the lifeblood of any business, but getting them isn’t always so easy. However using our balustrade design and quoting software goes a long way to help.
That’s because, unlike suppliers who rely on systems that aren’t as automated as the 3D Planner, anyone using it can provide quick and accurate designs. So customers looking for a relatively frictionless solution to their balustrade requirements will be more likely to be attracted by what you have to offer.
One of the key drivers for this is the fact that the 3D Planner is easy to incorporate into a website offering a very useful tool for anyone looking for balustrade solutions.
What’s more, it also offers the opportunity to capture personal details for any potential customers who want to use the system. So even if they don’t go all the way through to actually placing an order this time you will have an email address for any future marketing activity – as long as the appropriate GDPR procedures are followed.
It’s also a very strong selling point to include in all marketing material whether you’re using online advertising, targeted email or direct mail or even cold calling to generate more leads.
Clinch more sales
Of course, leads are really only useful to you when they go on to secure more sales. But 3D Planner is going to help here too.
Anyone who has ever worked in the balustrade design and selling field will have experienced sales which seemed to have been progressing well but somehow failed to make it over the line.
Often this is because the customer can’t quite visualise what the final result of all the planning is going to look like or are unsure about the final cost.
Because the 3D Planner will show exactly how the design will look and put it into the context of the building in which it’s going to be installed, this provides a greater sense of confidence for the customer. And, because it will also generate an accurate costing, this will be another deciding factor leading to a successful sale.
Add to this the ability to tweak the design quickly and easily, even using different finishes and materials, and it all adds up to a very effective way to convert leads into customers.
Save your business time and money
Automating the design process is obviously going to save huge amounts of time that would otherwise be taken up physically working out the layout and cost of the planned balustrade. That means more time can be dedicated to pursuing new leads and serving the needs of existing customers.
That much is obvious. But it’s the other features of the 3D Planner balustrade design software that can also save considerable amounts of both time and money.
For example, within the program it will also provide a running quotation of the cost, changing and adjusting it as alterations are made to the plan. It can also be set to automatically email the quote to customers, a process that would otherwise take valuable time to prepare and send manually.
Similarly, it can also handle automatic invoicing once the installation is complete, again saving the time it normally takes to prepare and send out bills.
Often, it’s the extra services that a business can offer that makes it stand out from its competitors. They also add value in the eyes of customers. By its nature, the 3D Planner achieves this in the service that you can offer and it can also do this in other ways now.
One of these is the fact that it adds a very valuable tool to include on a website giving customers an accurate indication of what both the design and the costs are going to be for the finished project.
Plus, its design is adaptable so it can be changed to match existing brand identity and brand colours to fit seamlessly into the surrounding site as a straightforward plug-in with no need for expensive or time-consuming redesigns or programming.
Save on training costs and time
In developing the 3D Planner we worked closely with industry experts, following their advice on the features it would need to include. One of the most important considerations was to make it simple and intuitive to use.
As a result, minimal training is needed and this means that the software is ready to be used almost as soon as it has been installed. When the downtime needed for staff to undergo training can cost a business a considerable amount, so this is another key advantage.
The best way to really appreciate just what a difference that the 3D Planner balustrade design and quoting software can make to your business is to see it in action for yourself. So we would be pleased to meet and show you it being put through its paces.
We would also be able to answer any questions that you might have and give you a rough indication of costs. So, for your personal demonstration, just contact us today and start planning for how the 3D Planner can help to build your business.
