Can a Product Configurator Help You Serve Your Clients Better?

Websites are the workhorses of marketing communications these days. They project your brand while providing vital info about your company and its products and services, streamlining customer service, and in many cases allowing customers to buy your products (not to mention their role in employee recruiting, investor relations, etc.).

But K1 Medical, a maker of customized surgical trays, is asking their website to do a lot more. Their clients, the surgeons themselves, like to have their surgical instruments organized in the exact configuration that works best for them. Each surgeon has their own preference for how their surgical trays are configured and for the surgical tools that go into them. In the past, this tray customization was done with the intervention of a customer support person at K1 Medical and involved a lot of back and forth with the client.

With the new EZ-Build™ configurator tool, surgeons can now go to K1 Medical’s website and specify the size and depth of their tray and the size, color, and location of the brackets that hold the surgical tools within the tray…all without the intervention of a customer support person. They can actually print out a rendering of their configuration and lay their surgical tools on top to confirm that they will fit. The surgeons can then save a draft of their configuration, specify the type of brackets used, and submit the customized surgical trays without the intervention of customer support if that is their desire. (Of course, Customer Service is always there if they’d prefer to work with a human being.)

By enabling their clients to configure the product they want right on the website…without human intervention…K1 Medical is actually saving money and serving clients better at the same time. A win-win if there ever was one.

K1 Medical turned to SFA Marketing to create the EZ-Build™ configurator tool and it was a great collaboration. Do you have a product line that lends itself to this kind of customization? If you do and you’d like to explore how a product configurator can be a win-win for your company let us know!

#HappyFriday! We are having a little bit of fun here at SFA taking the @adobe Creative Types Test. According to Adobe Create Magazine the test's goal is to shine a light on the inner workings of different creative personalities types in a way that might help us better understand ourselves, our creative process, and our potential. Here are our results! What’s your creative type? The Thinker: Driven by an insatiable intellectual curiosity, the THINKER makes the quest for knowledge and truth a lifelong pursuit. With all those big questions and abstract thinking, you’ve got some serious electrical activity going on in that brain of yours! The Visionary: You live in a world of infinite possibilities, preferring to see things not as they are but as they could be. The ability to see the spark of potential in everything and everyone, and to inspire others to see it, too. You’re able to guide people toward an invisible horizon with a rare generosity of spirit and strength of conviction. The Dreamer: The world is a place of beauty and magic in the eyes of a DREAMER. Where others see facts and figures, you see symbols, metaphors, and hidden meanings. Your greatest gift is your depth of sensitivity and empathy, which allows you to give voice to universal human emotions in a way that touches people on a profound level. The Innovator: The INNOVATOR sees everything through the lens of possibilities and progress, problems and solutions. Change may be scary for most people, but for you, it’s fuel for your creative fire. A pioneer and trailblazer, you’re here on this planet to light the way into the future. The Maker: Driven, focused, and dedicated to the creative process, the MAKER has mastered the art of manifesting ideas and visions in three-dimensional form. Society greatly benefits from the work of MAKER types, who develop the systems, structures, tools, and innovations that the rest of us rely on. . . . #workhardplayhard #fridayfun #creativeminds #mycreativetype #agencylife #marketing #capabilities #analytics #googleanalytics #marketinganalytics #marketingdigital #marketingagency #marketingtips #marketingonline  #marketingplan #marketingsocial

Promotional marketing is a business marketing strategy designed to stimulate a customer to take action towards a buying decision. No one is going to buy a product or service they haven't heard of, nor will they buy it from you if they don't know what your company offers. This is why a great promotion strategy is vital if you want to grow your business. Some companies use more than one method, while others may use different methods for different marketing purposes. Regardless of your company's product or service, a strong set of promotional strategies can help position your company in a favorable light, while opening the doors for future communication.
