HiB has recently signed a three-year agreement to feature on the Virtual Worlds professional CAD software.
This will mean that all retailers signed up to the programme will now be able to generate interactive simulations of HiB products, to exacting proportions, to be included in their design consultations.
Nathan MacLean, managing director at Virtual Worlds (seen here) said: “In this technological age, where consumers are increasingly seeking to ‘try before they buy’, our CAD technology is playing an increasingly important part of the retail dynamic in the KBB world. In fact, most of our retailers have seen a significant increase in sales conversion rates by offering consultancy in this way.
“As such, we’re constantly looking to increase our manufacturer portfolio to provide true-to-life replicas of all the latest market innovations. It is therefore fantastic to have HiB, a business of such a high calibre and excellent product portfolio, on board.”
Ash Chilver, sales director at HiB, added: “As a business, we’re always on the lookout for new ways to improve our retail proposition and we believe that Virtual Worlds will help customers to more adequately showcase our products in the various stages of the design process.”
