Easily set the date, time, and duration of your meeting and specify the time zone so the client knows exactly when to attend the virtual sales meeting

Enter the meeting URL of any screen share service (Zoom, GoToMeeting etc.) so the client can easily join the virtual meeting at the specified time

  • Choose Whether to Share the Project

The contractor can decide whether to share the project and designs immediately or whether to hold them back until the time of the meeting for maximum control over the sales process

  • Add Custom Messages

Add custom messages to let the client know how to access the virtual meeting or enter  notes about their project and design options

Privacy Law Compliance Opt-In

With ever-increasing compliance obligations required by privacy laws such as GDPR and CCPA, it is becoming even more important to notify your users about how their data will be collected and used.

Details of the New Feature:

Add a notification and opt-in banner pop up to your visualizer that is required to comply with GDPR, CCPA, “Cookie Laws” and other privacy legislation

3D Openings & Surfaces Customizer

Give your users the ultimate 3D customization experience by allowing them to edit the product type of openings and surfaces on their 3D models.

Details of the New Feature:

  • Easily Designate Openings as Windows or Doors

Sometimes a user may want to visualize a door where a window is currently located on the 3D model of their home (e.g. a sliding glass door that will replace a bay window). The 3D Openings & Surfaces Customizer allows the user to designate an opening as either a window or door so they can view and customize the appropriate product.

  • Customize the Product Type of any 3D Surface

Users can click on any surface to designate the product type (e.g. siding, trim, paint, or roofing, depending on what is available in your visualizer). This allows the user to fully customize their 3D model and view the right product on the right area of their home.

  • Simplify the Design Process for Your Homeowner Users

Homeowners can quickly filter by product type and color to simplify the options available to them and get them to a design decision faster.

  • Additional Flexibility for Contractors

Contractors can use the simplified product filtering to quickly design a project during a sales presentation or they can use the regular product category “drill down” to find the exact product line they need.
