Thern has expanded the crane website configurator tool. Now, allowing users to select from ALL Thern cranes while utilizing the Helioz zipCPQ™ configure, price, and quote solution. Dating back to the fall of 2020, Thern, Inc. partnered with Helioz Technologies to create an effective online shopping experience. Allowing engineers, architects, and end users to determine the best davit crane for their project. The Crane Configurator Expansion is a free tool that allows 24/7 access for users to customize any crane and produce a 3D model to incorporate it into their design to confirm fit and receive a ballpark price.
How to Use the Website Configurator
The configurator is a free, easy-to-use tool that is accessible in two ways. This tool is located on Thern’s homepage, www.thern.com, by selecting “Cranes” and the dropdown “Product Selector.” Using this method of access, the customer will enter critical needs. Specifically including capacity, hook height, hook reach, and length of the lift being performed.
This allows the program to recommend a range of products that meet the needs of the application. Once a product is selected, the user is redirected to the appropriate product page to configure a product.
For customers that already have an idea of what product may be the best lifting solution for them, the second way to access the configurator is to visit a crane’s product webpage directly and click “configure crane.” Either method walks the customer through configuring the crane, base, winch, and wire rope options. Both options make selecting a crane online a quick and convenient experience. In addition, Thern offers a video demonstration on the Thern, Inc. YouTube channel. Watch “Demo of Thern’s Crane Website Configurator” for a walk-through on how to use the 3D configurator.
Improving the Customer Experienced
Surely, the expansion of this tool to include all cranes that Thern manufactures allows the consumer to receive a 3D model of “their” davit crane in real time. The website configurator makes the online davit crane selection/buying experience a walk in the park. Undeniably, seeing what type of crane, winch, and wire rope options that best fit the project is guaranteed a win for everyone. Try it out today with any Thern davit crane!
