The ErgoBloc LC KT can be configured online

Completing an inquiry and an actual order for a Krones machine online with just a few mouse-clicks? You can do this now in the Krones.shop!

What we’re talking about here is the ErgoBloc LC KT – a Krones wet-end block for the Chinese market. This space-saving miracle-worker subsumes all the machines required for stretch-blow-moulding, labelling, filling and capping. This ErgoBloc LC KT was launched on the Chinese market in October 2016. Since early May 2018, the new capability has been up and running! Our Chinese clients can configure it themselves to suit their own wishes with just a few mouse-clicks and in only two steps.

My colleague from the shop’s management team, Jasmin Heindl, handled the project together with the BT BCT Product Management Department and Sales. “Hitherto, it had been regarded as inconceivable to offer a new machine for our clients in the online shop in addition to spare parts. So I’m all the more delighted that an initial idea has become a genuine innovation for Krones AG and the B2B segment.”

Any client interested can choose here between different quality assurance measures, bottle versions and layout variants. Following successful configuration, the client receives a non-binding quotation complete with pricing. This is forwarded immediately to our internal Chinese product specialists.

What’s special about it? Within a mere 24 hours, our specialists will get in touch with the Chinese clients, and will clarify individual requirements by email or telephone. The online configurator can be used by both logged-on registered users and new clients not logged on.

What does the future hold?

There are already ideas for using the configurator to order other Krones machines as well! The configurator will very soon be available for our European clients, too.

So there are some exciting developments ahead!
