STYLEPARK VILLEROY & BOCH
Anyone planning a bathroom knows: the devil is in the details. That is why Villeroy & Boch offers a comprehensive and free online service that saves time, money, and hassle: “We want to make it as easy and quick as possible for architects and designers alike to work on bathroom projects,” says Constantin von Boch. All services can be found at a glance on the professional portal of the sanitary specialist, where all information and data on the products such as technical drawings, references or brochures are available. The portfolio also includes 2D/3D and BIM data. “The project specification tool helps you plan your projects and compile product information such as the right product dimensions, available colors, recommended retail prices, etc.” explains von Boch. In addition, 2D/3D and BIM data can be retrieved and an image database is available for use underpinning an individual mood board. Subsequently, the project specification can be sent to the client or customer in the guise of a digital sample folder.
Further, the Villeroy & Boch app is ideal for appointments on the construction site, in the showroom, and generally when you are on the move. It allows you to display all the important information such as current prices, dimensions and installation instructions right on your smartphone, tablet or computer. “This means you can, for example, configure the desired product features with your customers, and immediately check whether the article is available at our warehouse,” says Constantin von Boch. Augmented reality tools also replace physical color swatches and can help present different variations of color combinations virtually right in the bathroom for which it is intended. One convenient feature is that the app also works without an Internet connection; once the data has been downloaded, it can be retrieved offline at any time.
In the case that even more illustrative examples are needed for sales and installation, the VIAcademy from Villeroy & Boch offers further product and installation videos. The sanitary specialist also actively offers commercial and technical training courses at their VIAcademy. In addition, it is possible to reserve dates for online lectures and book classroom trainings. The service also includes a training series certified by the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). The monthly newsletter is likewise a convenient way to read up on interesting information from Villeroy & Boch: “The Newsletter is a source of the essential information, like novelties launches, V&B events invitations, exhibitions, references, how-to articles and more,” says Constantin von Boch. With its diverse range of offers on the professional portal, Villeroy & Boch provides an all-round service for architects, interior designers, and technical planners, creating a useful combination of digital services and physical events.
