The Contiflow can now be configured online!

Only recently, I posted a blog article about the ErgoBloc LC KT Configurator and announced that we would soon be rendering further Krones machines configurable online as well. And now the time has come – here’s the next machine that’s amenable to online inquiries involving just a few clicks: the Contiflow!

Inspired by the Configurator for the ErgoBloc LC KT and the idea of selling a complete machine online, the specialist department had decided to offer the Contiflow through the as well (for the time being only in Europe), thus opening up an additional sales channel for new-machine business.

What makes the Contiflow so special?

Thanks to long years of experience, Krones possesses a vast fund of accumulated expertise in the field of product preparation. Continual design enhancement – coupled with the empirical feedback from our clients’ projects – guarantees optimum performance values in terms of efficiency and accurate dosing. What’s more, there’s no additional CO2 consumption at the mixer during continuous production.

How do users ascertain the price?

Our European clients can themselves configure all three variants of the Contiflow to suit their wishes with just a few clicks und in only two steps:  the Contiflow 15, 30 and 45.

In addition to the basic machine, interested clients have a choice of optional extras, which are explained in maximally comprehensible form during the course of the configuration procedure. Following successful configuration, the client receives, as with the ErgoBloc LC KT Configurator, a non-binding priced quotation, which is immediately forwarded to our internal product specialists. Within a mere 24 hours, our specialists will then get in touch with the client concerned, and clarify individual requirements by email or telephone. The online configurator can be used by both logged-on registered clients and new clients not yet logged on.

The project was launched by Stefan Hoeller and Markus Zenger from the Units and Components Product Management Department. “Many of our clients put their trust in the outstanding capabilities of the Contiflow. With the configurator, we can quickly and easily give our clients a fast overview of warranted values and fit-for-purpose extras.”

My colleague from eShop Management, Jasmin Heindl, was involved in this project throughout. “The challenge with this configurator was the three possible variants with different prices. Since the go-live and the presentation at this year’s BrauBeviale in Nuremberg, we have already received two more inquiries for new-machine configurators. Next year, we shall be revamping both the design and the system’s architecture in the background, enabling us to offer our clients an even better user experience.”
