Bull Outdoor Selects Powertrak 3D Product Configurator

The Company

Bull Outdoor Products Inc. is a leading innovator and manufacturer of quality branded products developed and designed for the outdoor living marketplace. Its products are sold to customers in specialty retail, hearth, hardware, appliance, building materials and the building trade throughout the US, Canada, Europe, South and Central America.

Bull is committed to providing the most complete line of premium products at the best value in the industry. Specific product categories include grills, cart grills, grilling accessories, rubs, sauces, fire features, outdoor kitchens and their components.

The Pain

Headquartered in Lodi, California, Bull Outdoor Products manufacturers and designs outdoor kitchens, grilling carts, fire features, and bar islands. With over 900 dealers and 2,000 points of distribution worldwide, the company recognizes the importance of simplifying and streamlining the opportunity-to-order process for its dealers selling Bull BBQ products.

“We had invested in a flashy, upstart quoting and ordering solution but eventually found it too demanding to maintain, lacked scalability, and wasn’t easy to train new dealers on how to design and quote our outdoor kitchens,” said Frank Mello, VP Sales and Marketing at Bull Outdoor Products. “When the company suddenly seized operations, we were left holding the bag. Fortunately for us, this served as a launching point to reinvest in our dealer network and reinvent how customers buy our products.”

The Search

To differentiate itself in the grilling marketplace, Bull Outdoor Products put an emphasis on the customer buying experience. The company evaluated a number of visual 3D product configurators that demonstrated mobility and scalability, but Bull’s executives also placed a heavy emphasis on the vendor’s core focus.

“Our business is rapidly growing and we’re continuously adding new products to our product line, so it’s paramount that our vendor is here to support and grow with us for years to come,” said Mello.

Bull Outdoor Products selected reputable software provider, Axonom, for its advanced Powertrak Product Configurator’s ability to deliver an easy-to-use visual configuration solution designed for dealers and retailers to work closely with customers and virtually guide them through the designing, quoting, and ordering process.

When the design is complete, the dealer can present a printed copy of the kitchen, generate a quote, or complete the order – in real-time, all in front of the customer.

Expected Benefits

“Powertrak is a win-win for both dealers and customers,” said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. Customers have the power to customize, price, and buy their very own outdoor kitchen, meanwhile dealers can ensure that prices and configurations meet Bull’s standards and specifications.”

Mello adds, “This solution will strengthen customer loyalty, enhance existing dealer relationships, and expand our brand into new markets. The combination of delivering first-class products using the finest materials and offering an intuitive configuration, quoting, and ordering solution so simple, compelling, and error-proof, our dealer’s adoption rate will be high and customers will enjoy their ordering experience.”
