When Kohler wanted to redefine how customers approach kitchen renovations, they called on Envisa to create a configuration tool to allow prospective customers to plan their kitchen design including sink, faucet, countertop, wall color, and cabinet selections.  The initial project was deployed as an iPad-compatible solution for designers at the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show.

The Envisa Solution

Envisa designed and developed an iPad-optimized custom configuration tool that served as a centerpiece for the tradeshow showcase of Kohler products and possibilities. The architecture allowed a limitless number of unique scenes to be visualized while integrating with Kohler’s web store backend systems. See the Kohler Kitchen Planner in action.

The Results

Dynamic Visualization of Custom Designs

The Envisa configurator solution provided a key asset to differentiate Kohler’s kitchen website from those of its competitors by allowing customers to envision endless possibilities with Kohler suite of products.

Full Back-End Integration for Seamless Data Management

The Kitchen Planner configurator requires minimal maintenance by product managers because all of the data is managed by the web store backend, thereby minimizing the overall cost of ownership.

Flexible Technical Architecture

The Kohler Kitchen Configurator solution optimized the ROI with a flexible, lightweight architecture that can be deployed on any of Kohler’s servers, and a configurator platform that can be used by other business lines in the future.

Rentgrow Develops Online Residential Screening Solution http://www.envisa.com/index.php/portfolio-items/rentgrow-develops-online-residential-screening-solution/ Mon, 02 May 2016 19:40:58 +0000 http://www.envisa.com/?post_type=avada_portfolio&p=15070

Yardi Resident Screening, formerly RentGrow, is a proven online tenant screening system that offers comprehensive renter background checks and credit reports so large property managers can make smart rental decisions and reduce loss from collections, evictions, and legal action. Rentgrow determined there was a void in the small landlord and independent rental owners market for tenant screening and so they turned to Envisa to develop a new online solution called Screeningworks.

The Envisa Solution

Envisa led the design and development of a custom eCommerce solution that enabled new landlords to quickly register with ScreeningWorks and then perform comprehensive online tenant screening.

The Results

Launched New Business Targeting Small Landlord

Envisa’s Residential Screening Solution enabled Rentgrow to launch a new business venture aimed at a new customer base: the small landlord.  The solution included implementation of Experian Precise ID for Identify verification and authentication for all new landlords signing up for the service.

Leveraged Existing Screening Tools to Maximize ROI

Leveraged Rentgrow’s existing backend systems that process background, eviction and credit checks by developing new, seamless interfaces for ScreeningWorks.

Delivered Fully-Integrated Tenant Profiles

Envisa developed a single, easy to read tenant report to aggregate information from Rentgrow’s backend systems to provide a single, comprehensive tenant profile to landlords.
