Case Study: An online product design tool for customers to choose, design and order a product

Everlon Bronze is an Australian based company that produces custom-made bronze products, and was in need for an “Online Product Design Tool”. Their services cater towards delivering and giving customers the freedom to design their products, such as casting bronze plaques, commemorative products, bronze statues and memorial accessories.

Online Product Design Tool Benefits and features

Benefit and Feature

Intuitive Interface

The new system empowers customers and provides them with superior user experience. Clients have plenty of choice and the freedom to create and design bronze plaques best suited for their requirements. It is designed to be used by non-technical users who can easily design the plaques with creative usage of font, colour, images and motifs that cater to their cultural, religious and military needs. Other features include a library of products as well as drag-and-drop editing.

Simplifying the customer service process

Simplifying the customer service process

The web-based platform has standardised the process in creating immediate designs and can now show the price breakdown of the costs involved in the order. It also helps the clients to track the product and for staff to perform quality control as the product moves through the manufacturing process.

Improved Accuracy and Efficiency

The previous system required customers to send pictures of their desired product by email, which meant that images were often not to scale and were unclear for foundry staff to work on. This resulted in errors and rework. The new wizard has provided benefits to the foundry staff who have less clarifications and less instances of human error and rework.

Improved accuracy and efficiency
