Closomat is aiming to tackle the issue of helping end-users to understand how their assistive equipment will look with a new tool it has launched.
The specialist bathroom supplier has launched an online configurator on its website for its flagship wash-and-dry WC, the Palma Vita.
The Palma Vita tool follows from the piloting of a similar facility for Closomat’s Asana wall-hung unit.
By clicking on the various accessories available, specifiers and clients can see what their new Palma Vita toilet will look like and how each option would benefit them. The tool also provides a cumulative price.
Robin Tuffley, Closomat’s marketing manager, said: “When you add up all the variations available for the Palma- different douches, seats, supports, height, operating mechanisms, there are almost 150,000 permutations.
“The new configurator tool helps ensure the toilet be ‘spec’d’ to a client’s exact needs, and they appreciate how it will look, enabling you to validate customer expectations.
“Such customer interaction and involvement is increasingly standard in home interior design.
“In our commitment to customer care, it is logical to extend configurator technology to enable clients to see the detail of their toilet, particularly when you bear in mind we spend on average three hours a week using our loo.
“To our knowledge, we are the only manufacturer of assistive toilet technology to offer such a facility.”
