Online platform iFurn further expands its digital product data offer
The provision and use of product data has never been easier than with the iFurn online platform: Fitting manufacturers or sales organizations upload their product data via a cloud and make it available to users on the platform for download.
This data can then be used not only for planning and sales, but also for production. Some of the main suppliers are already making their data available via iFurn, and more should follow in 2020. This means that even more designers worldwide can benefit from optimized processes thanks to digital data, and suppliers are also supporting digital furniture production.
In future, all components of a piece of furniture will be able to be digitally processed. As a cloud service, iFurn offers a simple way to provide fitting data digitally and thus supports the digital workflow in furniture production.
Suppliers can provide a broad portfolio of data in digital form - e.g. connectors, materials, fitting systems, lighting and built-in devices. The product data is prepared by iFurn in a comprehensible way and attractively presented on the platform, also in several languages. Pictures and videos show design and function, while complex product connections are shown via features, accessories and product dependencies. The output of the data includes editing, logic and functions.
An online assistant, which filters, sorts and lists the searched supplier data, enables users to access the product data quickly and easily. They save the data or download it directly into their design. The supplied data can be used independently of the system, as the downloaded data records can be converted into more than 30 CAD formats. All common CAD systems are therefore compatible with iFurn. In addition to the design data, the user receives all material information for an economical realization, such as drilling patterns and production lists. The stored surface information enables the creation of photorealistic images of a piece of furniture.
Users can access iFurn not only via the platform on the Internet, but also via the imos iX software in which iFurn is integrated. In the design and planning programs of imos iX 2019, the fitting can be presented in animated form in addition to design and execution.
Suppliers improve their customer service with iFurn. Their product data including visualization and processing information is easily accessible and available 24/7. Users can easily optimize their processes thanks to their digital data. Product adaptations can be imported at any time and users are actively informed about them.
Experience iFurn at the ZOW 2020
At the ZOW in Bad Salzuflen, iFurn will be presented together with imos at booth B021 in hall 20.1.
