Smart Integration with eCommerce Websites

Smart Integration with eCommerce Websites

Many cabinet and furniture retailers who are selling online are starting to look more interested in already made solutions, more exactly software that provides the ability to integrate a 3D interior planner into an eCommerce platform that they already use.

Levels of Integration

Most of retailers are already using known e-commerce platforms and they just simply need a sort of integration. They would not want to change to a different solution, they would prefer a sort of plug-in option or an API gateway that would help them to introduce in their web shop a 3D interior design application. Of course integration could come in many forms and is hard to completely standardize the entire implementation process and probably it would be better if it’s distributed through an API and retailers could customize it per their needs based on some already standardized features.

Lowering the Development Costs

This way you can significantly reduce costs instead of replacing entirely the solution with a new dedicated one. After a more close analysis, seems that most software companies are making these integration very complicated and expensive. Basically is not integration is rather they provide a full eCommerce solution for your business niche (in our case the K&B market or anything related that an interior planner would help engage customers) and then they charge you an enormous amount of money for various customized features.

Plug-in Type Of Integration

Innoplanner solution is by having plug-ins for known eCommerce platforms such as: Magento, WooCommerce, Opencart, PrestaShop, etc. Most of the competitors they didn’t do integration rather they built everything from scratch and they charge a fortune and we suspect they are not very effective in comparison with the known e-commerce platforms. Why we would build a Cart from scratch when there are already out there very powerful eCommerce solutions built and we just connect with them through plug-ins?

More faster, more affordable and more advanced approach plus most of the retailers already are using such standardized platforms and they are not willing to invest again in other Carts for their web shops.

Innoplanner in the Manufacturer & Retailer Business Relationship

Innoplanner in the Manufacturer & Retailer Business Relationship

Innoplanner has been design to make interior design more flexible and affordable for both retailers and importantly the manufacturer.  Retailers have a number of solutions, both good and bad, Manufacturers have roughly the same style of costly solution whereever they go. Innoplanner recognised the need for a more dynamic, flexible and productive way for manufacturer’s catalogs.

Innoplanner’s manufacturing module has been designed from the ground up to use the latest technology to provide powerful advantages at a realistic cost.

Living in an age of hand-held devices and a powerful internet Innoplanner provides great advantages to the interior design industry.

Catalogue Content Management System for Manufacturers

One of the many advantages that Innoplanner provides is the Manufacturer Module. The Manufacturer Panel is a Catalogue Content Management System (CCMS)  for any sort of cabinetry, accessories, appliances, sanitaryware, i.e. products manufactured.  

In simple terms manufacturers can manage their own product catalogs and can include any of the following:

  • Pricing
  • SKUs
  • Stock Levels
  • Discounts
  • Descriptions and detail
  • 3D models
  • Dealer networks
  • Ordering

…and many more functions.

For the first time, manufacturers have control, they can easily update real-time, any time they want, their product catalogs together with all the product’s relevent information without being totally dependent on the third party software provider. Also, there are interfaces to  connect their data with ERP software such as SAP and others.

The Most Up-to-Date Catalog Database in the market

Manufacturers always require up to date catalogues including all the product detail. They have a whole supply and sales chain dependent on them, from retailers to customers and installers.

Quotes, plans, designs and notes need to have the latest information to be able to sell the latest or promotional models, for pricing accuracy and to improve the sales cycle. You can show, sell and quote with the latest information.

Your Retailers and Designers will no longer have to wait for delayed catalogues, work with out of date models and spend selling hours download catalogue updates and patches at a frequent interval.

With InnoPlanner, both manufacturers and retailers enjoy a huge advantage. the most up to date content – increasing sales accuracy and efficency for all concerned parties.

Easy Access for your Retailers/Dealers

Retailers have a problem with the constant flow of updates that required frequent downloading updates and patches? Having to check for, or wait for the latest version and detail? From product numbers, to description to even shape? This added cost is hidden overhead and delay factors in getting your products to market. 
Innoplanner moved the entire design and ordering process online. Access the interior design software from any internet browser or device.

The best thing about Innoplanner is that the software is not limited to one device and you can access your account wherever you may be. The account works on a monthly or yearly subscription, without the hassle of  licenses, USB keys, etc.

Big Data and eCommerce Projects – the Open Information and API

Once you have a rich content centralised database with your manufacturer catalogs, the possibilities are unlimited. This data is available for a wide range of uses including user/lead generation, showroom presentations, feed into eCommerce websites and ERP systems.  

Developers can manipulate and use the information within the database for even greater  efficiency using radily available tools such as APIs for developers.

Meet the New Industry Standard

Meet the New Industry Standard

Everyone in the interior design industry especially in the kitchen & bath market understands the importance of having a 3D rendering to show the homeowner. A 3D rendering is a powerful sales tool that allows the homeowner to see what their new interior design is going to look like. For a small company a 3D rendering makes them look more professional and gives them a tool to be able to compete with the big box hardware stores. If it generate designs along with quotations even better.

InnoPlanner is a drag-n-drop professional 3D interior design web service and is built to simplify the process of cabinetry manufacturers to publish a catalog and share it to their dealer networks faster and more affordable through a fully modern cloud-based system that can be accessed from everywhere, anytime.

InnoPlanner is not a desktop version, doesn’t require installation and the main access point is through an URL terminal. Is the alternative to the desktop kitchen and bath design software’s on the market today that cost thousands of dollars to purchase and hundreds per year in added fees. Because InnoPlanner runs entirely on a cloud system, it doesn’t require a lot of processing power to operate as it uses mostly the server resources. The entire data is stored online which makes ideal for franchised or dealer-based operations with large number of representatives. Retailers can create 3D designs, access manufacturer catalogs and issue orders using any device that has internet access including tablets. For manufacturers we provide a Content Management System to upload/publish and manage their catalogs along with the required documentation and support. Not only this, Innoplanner can integrate most of the ERP/CRM systems found on most manufacturers for a complete linking with their internal operations. The app can be also be used for other purposes other than cabinetry, like home renovation, real estate promoting, shelf planning and many other. innoplanner-macbook-pro1-1024x5482

Instead of spending thousands per year in upfront cost our dealer has the option of a month to month subscription or annual subscription, a fraction of the cost of the desktop software. Because the entire system is hosted in a server, we manage to significantly lower the expenses on maintenance that reflects in the subscription fee.

The interior design software is developed by Digital Artflow. Currently we are seeking business and catalog partnerships to distribute our solution wordwide.
