Moving beyond traditional sales presentations and CRMs, businesses are turning towards interactive sales tools to enhance their sales processes and drive results.

Driving Sales with an Interactive Sales Tools

An interactive sales tool is a digital solution that allows businesses to showcase their products or services in an engaging and interactive way. It goes beyond traditional sales materials by incorporating features like 3D interactive product showcases, dynamic content, and personalised experiences.

These tools assist businesses in effectively communicating their value proposition, capturing the attention of potential customers, and ultimately driving sales.

Examples of Custom Built Interactive Sales Tools

Custom-built interactive sales tools offer a range of features that differentiate them from standard sales materials.

As experts in bespoke software development, we have developed a number of custom-made interactive sales tools across different industries, and both the Reza Hygiene Interactive Sales Tool and the Diversey Sales Explorer Tool demonstrate different features that have elevated the sales process.

In the Reza Hygiene example, the interactive sales tool allows customers to virtually explore the company's product offerings. Users can interact with 3D models, view product details, and even visualise how the products would fit into their own environments.

Key to the success of the Reza Hygiene Interactive Sales Tool is the 3D environment that acts as the navigational structure of the sales platform. It's instantly more immersive and engaging for customers and, by adopting VueJS technology, is compatible across browsers and integrates into Reza Hygiene's quote builder software, also developed by Toru Digital.

Reza Hygiene's bespoke CMS enables them to update products, specifications and create new 3D environments for showcasing their products. This gives Reza full control over the content, enabling them to create customised ‘cities’ for corporate clients including McDonald's and Rochester Midland.

For the Diversey (part of the Solenis group) Sales Explorer Tool, we developed a comprehensive platform for sales representatives to access product information, presentations, and other resources in real-time, enhancing their ability to engage with customers during the sales process.

With a complex product offering, one of the key objectives was to make the search experience highly visual and engaging. Our solution was to take inspiration from Google Maps and develop a widget that combines simple search filtering options within a 3D environment.

The bespoke sales tool also had to work across multiple languages and integrate with Diversey’s legacy tech infrastructure.

Following an initial roll-out for F&B (Food & Beverage) products and services, the Diversey GPS sales tool is now being deployed across the wider Solenis group, providing an immersive sales explorer tool for thousands of products.

The next update will also include AI integration for a smarter, more personalised experience.
