WEATHER GUARD Driving Revenue with DriveWorks Pro 3D Configurators

WEATHER GUARD is Driving Revenue with DriveWorks Pro

WEATHER GUARD, a WernerCo brand, is an industry leader in truck and van storage equipment, including truck boxes, drawer units, shelving, cabinets, and racks for trucks, vans and utility vehicles. Their products allow for more oragnized trucks and vans for greater productivity, whilst providing superior protection against break-ins and weather.

Before Implementing DriveWorks

Previously, WEATHER GUARDs customers would visit their site searching for van products. Using a 2D configurator, they would determine the right fit and customised combination of products.

However, this solution wasnt keeping pace with users requirements, and adding new vehicles and van products to the system became difficult to update.

The number one priority for WEATHER GUARD was that the configurator had to be 3D, in order to provide an extremely realistic viewof an installed van product package. Secondly,long-term sustainabilitywas a must.

It was also essential that the solution was developed in a way thatintegrated with other business systems. Specifically, WEATHER GUARD wanted to be able to leverage data within their Product Information Management (PIM) system, allowing seamless additions of new SKUs or vehicles.

Now, WEATHER GUARD are using DriveWorks software, not just as an engineering automation tool, but to drive sales and also generate more revenue than ever before.

Success Metrics to Measure ROI

WEATHER GUARD has not only built an engineering tool but also used the functionality inside DriveWorks to create a highly successfullead generation and sales toolthat allows stakeholders to know exactly how much revenue is coming through the configurator to measure ROI.

The company is relying on DriveWorks toincrease completed configurations,boost distributor referralsanddrive sales – anticipating afive percent increase in annual sales as a result, at the time of implementation.

The speed of DriveWorks is critical because it enables distributors to get a lead within minutes and allows us to see when the prospect was contracted, quoted and closed

Reduced Engineering Time

WEATHER GUARD have dramatically reduced their engineering time, saving at least one full day of labor per configurator request received. Using DriveWorks, requests are now immediately sent to a distributor for follow up, and the company has gained visibility into the complete lead lifecycle. Previously,a user-submitted configurationwould take up to three days to be assigned to a distributor.
