Real movable walls industrialist, leader of the French market, Algaflex defines itself as much as a manufacturer as a services supplier provided with a solid customer culture. The creation of a BIM objects catalog by Polantis has helped Algaflex strengthen its relations with its clients.
“The people at Polantis listen, they strive to give us solutions and respond to our demands. They managed to get us to understand today’s market needs in spite of the sheer complexity of BIM”
Polantis responds to a very contemporary need at Algaflex and it’s an important tool that enhances sales. When we go and visit architects at their practices, we always refer them to our CAD and BIM objects catalogue online. When you come to think of it, an architect or any specifier of AEC products – spends 10 hours a day in front of his CAD or BIM software… And this is where you want your products to be present. We see this especially with young architects, now that they can use our products inside their software they can terminate the planning phase of their projects faster. They then use the same models to mount their CGI in a way that always seems to seduce their clients. The BIM objects Polantis have created for us are so intelligent that it is now very easy for an architect to demonstrate how our products can section spaces and volumes within the project by creating a series of perspectives demonstrating the possibilities. This allows any hesitant client to see immediately the advantage of our movable walls solutions.
Paper catalogues still are a very important tool for communication but now, ours are equipped with a DVD containing our full CAD and BIM objects catalogue. The work on the DVD was also done by Polantis. The architect will always want to see and touch the product using a 2D / 3D and BIM objects in his project is the next best thing. Polantis took special care to reflect the proper materials we use so when architects render our products they get a “real” feel of the product.
We’ve also opted for the possibility to feature our CAD and BIM objects on our own website thanks to the special cloud solution that Polantis offers. This is a great tool to transform visitors into leads.
In sum, the people at Polantis listen, they strive to give us solutions and respond to our demands. They managed to get us to understand today’s market needs in spite of the sheer complexity of BIM. We’re very happy and satisfied of their professionalism.
