Background

Biohort was looking for an effective 3D tool to demonstrate the high level of customisability of its sheds and to enable customers and partners to configure them easily. With this tool, customers and partners should be able to navigate effortlessly through the multitude of options, from size to door variant, and design their individual shed. In addition, products from the wide Biohort range, including tool sheds and bin boxes, were to be configured in 3D on the website and viewed in their own environment using augmented reality. They were looking for a technology that would also improve on-site customer advice and enable a digital presentation of the products by the retail partners.

Challenge

Order all products out of a room plan

The challenge was to use a product configurator to herald the next stage of growth in sales and make Biohort's advice-intensive product range accessible to customers and sales partners europe-wide 24/7 at the point of sale. The aim was to strengthen and simplify the sale of accessories and complex modular product systems in addition to the sale of bestsellers. The aim was to ensure simple and intuitive configuration of the products as well as first-class display quality and a seamless user journey from product inspiration to purchase. The central questions were:

  • How can the customer's wide range of products be made available intuitively in every sales channel?

  • How can the customer's high-quality products be presented online realistically and in line with the requirements of a premium brand?

  • How can intuitive usability be ensured for end customers and retail partners?

Result

Biohort benefited from Roomle's many years of experience in the field of customised product configurators. Thanks to the Rubens 3D configurator, products such as garden sheds and tool cabinets can be presented in the online shop with the highest visualisation quality and speed. All details, materials and colours are clearly displayed, allowing customers to better visualise their products and make better purchasing decisions.
It is particularly worth emphasising that Biohort has implemented the integration of the Rubens configurator in an exemplary manner. Customers can move seamlessly from configuration to purchase, with error-free ordering guaranteed by the Roomle parts list and live price calculation. Through features such as direct product links and the ability to save variants, Biohort is implementing best practices for successful integration.
