ACATEC Software GmbH

Achieving high levels of customer satisfaction and capturing new markets. ZARGES, the vertical access technology specialist, relies on the product configurator from ACATEC

ZARGES is part of the ZARGESTUBESCA Group based in Weilheim in Upper Bavaria. Besides a large range of standard products, the experts in vertical access technology also offer customised solutions. In this area, ZARGES relies on ACATEC’s product configurator – speedmaxx Enterprise.

Efficiency increased by several orders of magnitude

Weighty catalogues are a thing of the past as ordering moves to an online portal – achieving a significant gain for the marketing and sales departments. And a huge relief in terms of routine work for the downstream production department – creating capacity for innovation.

Automatic 3D visualisation on the web, multi-language capability, simple pricing and quotation creation make it possible. ACATEC’s product configurator makes it easier for ZARGES to market its range of ladders, bridges and mobile work platforms. Customers can select and construct the desired product quickly and conveniently using the configurator and see a 3D visualisation immediately. They can receive a detailed quotation with dimensioned drawings. The 3D model with the data for subsequent production is already prepared in the background, since the further steps in the process can now follow on automatically. The keywords here are CAD automation and ERP automation.

Good reasons for ACATEC

Customer convenience is paramount: 3D visualisation makes it easier for ZARGES’ customers to see what they are configuring. Incidentally, without having to finish configuration.

The second good reason for ACATEC: speedmaxx prevents errors. The interesting thing about the configurator is that customers are always asked for further details about their order in the correct context. All the necessary information is prompted for step by step and its plausibility is checked. Thirdly, collaboration between ZARGES and ACATEC is important – and it simply works.
