What you see is what you get
This particular sales statement is the most convincing and reassuring way of presenting your products. Classic communication can highlight your product range and its diversity of options can create interest. But to help you deliver on your initial promises and drive your customers further down the road towards becoming buyers, product configuration tools can accelerate the buyer journey.
Making the customer boss - and buyer
Give all the power to your customers by introducing seamless and easy-to-use product configuration options that can showcase your customizable solutions and product variants in real-time. With the limitless possibilities of customization, configuration, or interactive product building, your customers can create and visualize their favorite versions of your product offerings.
Whether your products require complex configuration or your available product variants need to be visualized together in a particular environment, product configuration software solutions offer high flexibility in the tool’s possibilities. Get tailored solutions designed around your business rules and your customers’ demands.
What is product configuration?
Product configuration is, in all essence, a software tool that can help you to transform key parts of your time-consuming business processes into a more effortless and interactive sales process. Traditional product inquiries transform into seamless, auto-generated visualizations of a complete and specific combination of various components or a product structure that realistically showcases the final product or solution.
You can use product configurators to guide your customers towards narrowing down features and cosmetic design, which ultimately can help accelerate the decision process and confidence in their choice.
A paradigm of mass customization
Customization is king today. No matter what product you offer and what market you operate on, your customers demand choices. Product configurators can enable mass customization for you and your customers. The systems can be designed to match your business and your customers’ desire to freely pick and display different product versions in real-time regardless of complexity.
Product configuration: A win-win solution
Getting started with product configuration
As you know, technology is evolving. As a result, your buyers today have much higher expectations about how you as a brand communicate and expect a brand they can trust, both visually and verbally. Each of our 3D visualization services is designed to empower you to achieve remarkable results for your company. Our strategic partnership together can help further guide you along the right path to mastering the ever-evolving digital possibilities.
Creating best practices for product configuration
Designing a product configurator requires defining and maintaining configuration rules to create a fully functional design tool that can be more than simply a cool gimmick operating in an isolated silo. Instead, it should become an integrated channel that drives sales and communicates with anything from manufacturing to databases and other central systems.
With the help of our product configuration experts, our collaborative project will take you through an entire in-depth process from idea to execution to set you up for success with product configuration. Our goal is to provide you with a definitive tool that matches your needs and follows the best configuration processes. Here are some of the best practice offerings that our team of in-house specialists can incorporate into your production configuration solution:
Entertain and educate
Entertainment and education are the main keywords for creating successful product configurations. Your customers should stay engaged while using your product configurator and be able to easily access all necessary information about the product when presented with each alternative.
Offer seamless 360° views
A realistic 360° showcase of the customized product can offer a complete view from every angle as if the customer were at the store. Therefore, a 360° display can be highly effective in creating a true-to-life reflection of the customized product, which can help further nudge your customers towards a purchase decision.
Switch out or start over
Your customers are likely looking to explore your various alternatives and will therefore not end up with their preferred visual and feature design first time. Therefore, switching out different colors, materials, or components should be easy and intuitive.
If a complete do-over is what they want, then your product configurator should be able to quickly reset the configuration process. Your customers may also be interrupted in the customization process or may simply not be ready for purchase. Why not let your customers save their configuration progress to let them easily resume at a later time?
Stay on track
Assist your customers by displaying each step in the configuration process to always let them know what stage they are currently on. This feature can also make it easier for your customers to jump back and forth between each step to arrive at a confident and final conclusion of their favorite edition of your product.
Are some choices more expensive than others? As your customers try out different combinations of your product, the final pricing may vary. The product configurator can incorporate dynamic pricing of the complete product and each chosen alternative to be fully transparent towards the customer during the entire configuration process.

Cadesign understood where we wanted to go instantly.
Project managers were super professional, and respectful, and showed us respect for being a high-end brand and what it requires. With other suppliers, it takes longer to understand who we are, and how detailed and cautious we are about our look, the material, and the feel. Cadesign understood where we wanted to go instantly. That was very comforting to me and made it easy to start out quickly.
Choosing a location from Location Library is a shortcut to make a lot of pictures in a short time but show off many different products with many stylings in great quality. We got so much positive feedback on the pictures - the surfaces look very real and it lives up to the quality and perception of our products.
It's also a source of inspiration, it shows the creative thoughts and details that you ordinarily would not get. The location we chose has wooden beams and it gives you that extra layer of something that looks nice and very personalized.
We found out about Cadesign and their new Location Library service which fits us like a glove. Now, we have access to a variety of environments, each one flexible and enabling us to show our fireplaces in a multitude of settings at a reasonable cost.
On top of that, each project runs smoothly and quickly which gives us the opportunity to plan the production satisfactorily.
