Blue Giant Create Parts Configurator for Their Worldwide Authorised Dealers & Sales Team Using DriveWorks

Blue Giant Equipment Corporation were founded in 1963 and initially specialised in the manufacture of dock levelers and hand pallet trucks.

Since then the company has grown rapidly with the addition of innovative technology, expanded product offerings and worldwide manufacturing and distribution facilities. Their renowned product line includes: dock levelers, ground-level lifts, vehicle restraints, intelligent dock controls and a diverse range of material handling products.

A Configuration Solution

With over 8 million product combinations, Blue Giant were in need of a more simplified configuration solution.

They now use DriveWorks Pro to power ConfigureBLUE, their online parts configurator for use by their worldwide Authorised Dealers and Sales Teams.

The configurator is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and removes the confusion and learning curve often associated with configuring a solution from catalogues.

ConfigureBLUE is tied directly to Blue Giants internal manufacturing response planning (MRP) system and typically a quote will be received via email within seconds of configuring a solution.

Generating Documents

By using DriveWorks, ConfigureBLUE generates 2D and 3D drawings and models to the customers exact specification and the drawing package is received within minutes of the request.

We use DriveWorks for quoting and approval drawings for almost 160 teams and 530 users. We also use DriveWorks for production part component generation for various product lines and a whole bunch of other great stuff! – Christopher Zona, Manager – Systems Automation.

DriveWorks World

Members of the Blue Giant team regularly join us at our annual technical training event, DriveWorks World. Not only do they participate in our training sessions, they also present to other attendees and share their success.
