New SitOnIt Seating ChairBuilder tool is designed for mobile use
Cypress, CA, May 12 2014 — SitOnIt Seating has developed an online quote generator designed to specify and visualize chairs on the go or on the spot. With ChairBuilder, users can produce a list price – complete with part number – with several easy clicks.
The ChairBuilder.com website is optimized for iPad and other mobile devices.
“This new product configurator features the most popular SitOnIt Seating collections” said Paul DeVries, CEO of Exemplis. “It allows the user to create their own customized chair in just a few clicks.”
ChairBuilder users can choose from all chair features and options, clearly seeing the cost of each selection. The tool makes it impossible to make an incompatible choice or select an unavailable option.
All carded fabrics can be searched and selected with a color swatch displayed on the screen for verification. The price includes the selected fabric grade. Once selected, the fabric is rendered on the chair for an accurate look at the finished product. In addition to list price, the full part number is displayed for easy ordering.
“Printed price books are complicated and can require significant time to configure a spec and generate a quote.” says Robert Morris, Director, Online Marketing for Exemplis. “Frequently, it can take hours or days to respond to an RFQ. ChairBuilder is fast, easy and designed for tablet use so the quote can be made anytime, anywhere: from the road, the customer’s location or at home after hours.”
Online configurators are not all the same. Some are positioned as a consumer tool and don't meet the needs of professionals. Other sites can configure a chair, but with limited options and/or textile choices. Many web-based tools cannot even deliver a visual image that matches the selections. Only ChairBuilder allows the user to generate a visual image, list price quote and part number for any chair configuration, along with a number of useful presentation aids:
- Accurate, high resolution front and back images of the specified chair
- A custom two-page product summary with textile swatch
- Dealer contact information and comments
- Download and save, or email a link
ChairBuilder is designed to assist SitOnIt Seating sales reps, dealers, project managers, and the A&D community.
The initial phase of the website is live now, and includes the Focus, Torsa, Amplify, and Wit collections. All models and all options are available for selection. More collections from the SitOnIt Seating portfolio will be available in the coming months.
