Configura Wins Best of NeoCon Gold for Stage
Configura, maker of CET software, received top honors during NeoCon 2021 for its new software product, Stage, winning a Best of NeoCon Gold Award.
Stage is a web-based 360-degree product viewer that lets people visualize, configure and order commercial interior products online, from any device, in real time.
The solution can be used as an inspirational, sales and/or e-commerce tool by contract furniture manufacturers, A&D firms, dealerships, interior designers, sales representatives and, ultimately, by end consumers.
“We are thrilled that the industry is as excited about Stage as we are,” Configura Product Manager of Cloud Services Pontus Wallberg said. “The solution is incredibly easy to use and provides an opportunity to engage buyers very early in the sales process.”
With so many consumers now shopping online – and with heightened expectations for fast product delivery – Stage offers an efficient way for end users to specify office furniture online, without having to experience the product and finishes in person.
Stage repurposes product data from CET, which means manufacturers can manage their data for multiple tools in one location (historically, manufacturers would manage multiple tools and datasets – but Stage streamlines the process and eliminates the need for multiple tools and datasets).
With Stage, manufacturers can display their products directly on their website in an interactive way, making it easier to gain more qualified sales leads and reducing the back and forth with customers. Stage can be custom branded by the manufacturer and integrated with a given manufacturer’s e-commerce setup.
Stage supports such commercial interior products as chairs, tables, desks, white boards, lounge/modular seating, lighting, planters and more.
