Online order configurator from hoist maker

14 May 2019


German hoist manufacturer Liftket has added an online configurator to its website, to enable customers to design a tailored electric chain hoist.

The tool also instantly generates complete documentation with technical drawings, says Liftket.

Various parameters can be freely defined, or selected from standard measures; these include working load, lifting height, lifting speed, power supply specifications, type of suspension and, if applicable, trolley type, trolley speed, and flange profile and width. The configurator integrates all Liftket series.

Open to customers and unregistered users, the service allows users to export data as a PDF file, as well as requesting a quote, which is emailed to them within a few minutes. Users can then place orders or a sales request referencing the quotation number. The unique ID enables sales staff to automatically access all configuration data, which helps to avoid errors.

The tool is designed to make order placement much faster and easier to handle in comparison to manually filling out conventional order forms, says Liftket, as well as making it more simple to manage and file quotations. Quotes can also be easily shared with other departments, such as engineering and procurement, adds the manufacturer.
