The Aqua Builder
Aquaglide Europe are a distribution wing of the successful Aquaglide brand. Aquaglide is a leading manufacturer of Aqua Parks and Inflatable water pieces worldwide.
Aquabuilder was developed in late 2019 as a solution to an outdated sales system. Sales representatives (reps) selling aqua glide equipment were selling and showcasing aqua glide equipment to potential customers through pictures and spreadsheets. This was a time consuming process which provided no real visual aid to the clients consumer as to how the finalised Aqua park would look.
Required was a piece of software that enabled reps to build a digital aqua park with 3D park equipment. This would to be used as sales tool for both potential leads and existing clients. The software had to add up the cost of each piece of equipment of the park and the required anchor amount and depth for each piece. The rep needed to be able to save the parks that would be built and use them as a reference at any point of a sales process.
What we needed to acheive
This was a total design and build of something that did not exist. This software would be totally unique. The challenge list was endless. Brainstorming would be key and clear and concise communication with the client was essential.
- No software had been produced before
- Easy to use UI
- Park Builder in 2D
- Click to render in 3D
- Responsive for iPads at shows
Our solution allowed the user to build Aqua Parks like lego. Piecing each part of the park together effortlessly in a 2D space. The user can rotate, move and join many pieces together and save their build. They can show this to their boss or share online with anyone they would like. At the click of a button the software allows the park to be rendered in a 3D space to give a unique view for the user. It really is a sales tool like no other.
Aqua Builder is as unique as it is successful. In such a short space of time (a matter of months) it has been responsible for close to 1 million dollars worth of Aqua park sales and is now used by reps worldwide from Germany, the UK and USA. The software was recently used by Aquaglide and Yachtbeach at the Dusseldorf boat show in Germany which has led to an increase in the number of sales of Aqua park clients. As the builder has been developed to be efficient, fast and responsive alongside being visually pleasing it speeds up the sales process. One customer of the Aqua Builder said he could not imagine trying to sell without it.
