Previously, DubaB8 handled product information in a number of different systems: In ERP, in different folders, and in a separate image database. The various locations made it hard to find product information and duplicate data was often created because of the lack of overview. At the same time, it was difficult to see what data was actually missing. To gather all information for promotions and offers and for advertisements and product data sheets was time consuming and cumbersome.
THE PRODUCT CONFIGURATOR ENSURES OPTIMAL PRODUCT PRESENTATION
DubaB8 has built an advanced product configurator that works in collaboration with the Perfion
PIM system, the ERP system (Lawson M3) and the CMS (Umbraco). Perfion
handles the many data and images that the user can choose from and click on in order to see the product with the desired components (eg. various table legs, tabletops, bag holders, etc.). With the product configurator, DubaB8 can show the customers images of all the 15,600 billion different tables that can be created by combining the 20,000 table component images stored in Perfion
Henrik Mark Mogensen, Executiive Director – COO at DubaB8 explains:
Our vision was to make our business much more scalable and this has been achieved. It would have been impossible to generate the desired growth without the digital service platform that the Perfion
PIM system is part of.
When we installed Perfion, the most challenging task was to design the product configurator, so that it would also be easy to maintain. It is a complex task to make fully integrated product configuration function, but this works perfectly. We got a simple solution for a complicated task.”
DUBAB8’S SALES ORGANIZATION BECOMES MORE EFFECTIVE WITH THE DIGITAL SERVICE PLATFORM
DubaB8 has a clear expectation that Perfion
will add to a significant efficiency improvement of the sales organization and that the lead time will be reduced by several days. In future, far less time will be spent on making offers and orders, because the sales representatives can place orders online with always correct and sufficient data instead of sending emails back and forth between all the parties involved. With the digital service platform and Perfion, errors in offers and orders will be virtually extinct.
In the future, even more information will be stored in Perfion, including:
• Test certificates and ecolabels
• Further product specifications
• Info about related products
• Even more product and lifestyle images
An integration to the company's BI system, QlikView, is also on the wish list.
is a tool that is intuitive and easy to work with and it does not take a lot of training. The Perfion
system's flexible data inheritance and configuration options also make it easy to create and load new data.
PERFION PIM AS A KNOWLEDGE SHARING SYSTEM
Within the entire organization of DubaB8, Perfion
serves as product database and is a powerful tool for training new employees because all product information is available in one place.
