Project 1 : BD Cloud
What started as an idea to digitize their enormous collection of fabrics ended into the idea of an in-/external platform, focussing on sales-support both B2B as B2B2C. In an agile and incremental way we designed and developed a platform where designers, sales, clients and their clients can collaborate and feel supported in their daily tasks. What can you find on the platform? A 3D product configurator, showing high-end digital visualisations of all fabrics allowing users to tweak within product-boundaries without the need for sample-production. A collaboration module to co-create mattress concepts and built powerful offers for clients. A tool for designers to import their new creations from the PIM system and provide them with attractive visual assets and all meta-data... The BD Cloud is only steps away from being a prime example of a fully integrated Industry 4.0 application, especially when connecting it with the production units.
Project 2 : Designer tool
Since the core of BekaertDeslee’s product range consists of semi-manufactured goods, visualisation was key in all the tools we developed for them. For the designers of each continent we created an online 3D mattress-builder, allowing them to re-build the products of their clients and show them the BekaertDeslee fabrics applied very realistic. Everything from bedboxes, borders, headboards, pillows, handles, zippers, … can be used to build an attractive 3D copy of an existing product for the end-customer. In close collaboration with the product developers, designers and clients of BekaertDeslee we made this tool as user-friendly and flexible as possible, making sure the output was so close to the real thing it would become a vital part of the design and sales-process in the future.
Project 3 : Add-ons & integration
As their trusted digital partner we are always co-creating add-ons and elaborations for the core tools, trying to improve various processes, tackling every business unit at a time. We try to stay flexible, not letting the bigger picture hold us back and we deliver proof-of-concepts very fast. On the other side the size and complexity of the company is a non-neglectable fact, so the long-term value and durability of digital solutions always needs to be taken into account.
