Not so long ago, the most common way to make a metal building purchase was by driving to visit a brick-and-mortar dealer or stopping at some roadside display which featured all of 3 or 4 metal building options. The selection wasn’t always that great, and your ability to customize your building sometimes left something to be desired. But fast-forward just a few short years, and the nature of the light-gauge steel structure industry in America has changed significantly. There are now more manufacturers and dealers than ever, and customers also have more options than ever for getting their own custom steel structure. Demand for metal buildings continues to increase across the country, and the industry has become increasingly competitive as well. Customers’ expectations around building quality, customizability, and customer experience have increased as well. More than ever, you need a way to help your metal buildings business stand apart and succeed. One of the best investments you can make is in a capable online 3D Building Estimator that your customers (as well as your salespeople) can use to create their own custom building design.
A 3D configurator is exactly what it sounds like – it’s an easily-accessible digital tool that allows anyone and everyone to create their own custom building designs. Configurators like these have become commonplace across the wider construction industry, but for a long time there weren’t any great configurators that were specially-designed for the metal buildings niche. A couple of years ago, Cibirix set out to change that by working to develop a proprietary 3D Building Estimator which would be perfectly crafted to suit the special needs of metal buildings dealers and their customers.
So, what sets our 3D Building Estimator apart?
At Cibirix, we understand that some of the keys to business success revolve around increasing profit margins, decreasing cost, serving more customers, and giving your customers as pleasant and as painless of a shopping experience as possible. And we’re happy to report that when it comes to important measures of ROI like these, our 3D Building Estimator really delivers!
Customer relationship management (CRM) tools provide a platform to help you seek out and track new potential customers, while also offering greater capabilities for personally engaging the clients you already have. CRM software gives your sales team a way to log communication touchpoints, manage leads, and offers valuable data to your marketing team for generating more effective campaigns.
If you’re a business leader who’s trying to assess the ROI of implementing a CRM for small business, consider this – effective CRM solutions give you the ability to optimize advertising for targeted lead generation, increase your conversion rates, and thus boost your revenues! The right CRM software also offers a more effective system for communication and follow-up, resulting in higher levels of customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. What would that be worth to your business?
Cibirix is a digital marketing, branding, and web design team that serves clients in many industries, but we really have a special place in our hearts for metal buildings businesses. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to develop the best 3D Building Estimator in the industry, and that’s why we continue working to make it even better every day. But our 3D Building Estimator isn’t the only way we can help your business grow!
Another challenge that all metal building dealers face is figuring out how to manage leads, respond to questions, improve conversion rates, and manage customer relationships more effectively. Many established dealers have tried using some open source CRM tools to address these challenges, with sometimes less-than-optimal results. Well, we’re happy to share that Cibirix has also developed a CRM tool just for you! Sensei is the first CRM software to be custom-designed for the metal buildings industry, and those who have already adopted it are seeing immediate benefits. And what’s even better is this – our 3D Building Estimator is completely compatible with the Sensei CRM, and the two can be integrated together seamlessly!
