Visually design hospital environments and medical products with Powertrak 3D Product Configurator.
Minneapolis, MN- October 20, 2016 Axonom, a global provider of cloud-based visual configure-price-quote (CPQ) software, today announces Skytron, a leader in healthcare equipment and technology, selects Powertrak 3D Product Configurator to simplify the complexity of quoting and ordering medical products, and designing healthcare environments.
Powertrak gives Skytron sales professionals and distributors an interactive selling solution that visually communicates product attributes, simplifies product and room configurations, speeds design concepts, ensures accurate quoting, and enriches the engagement experience with healthcare planners and designers.
“Designing safe and productive healthcare environments is a complex process and significant investment,” said Craig Wassenaar, President at Skytron. “We’re investing in technology to help healthcare teams and their key stakeholders make better, more informed decisions prior to construction and installation.”
Skytron offers countless combinations of medical products and integration systems for hospitals and surgical centers. Its sales representatives and distributors work with healthcare teams to plan, design, and create custom solutions with a safe, flexible, and efficient layout.
To differentiate itself in the marketplace, Skytron placed an emphasis on the customer experience. “Our boom and light equipment have multiple points of rotation and functionality. It’s paramount that we visually showcase and demonstrate how our equipment operates in their footprint,” said Wassenaar.
The solution enables Skytron and customers to strategize and co-design room layouts by placing near-realistic, 3D models of Skytron products (tables, booms, lights, storage carts), and even third-party medical equipment into the virtual environment. When the design is complete, they can present to stakeholders for approval, generate a quote, and/or complete the order - in real-time.
Skytron distribution partner, The RHINO Group, welcomes the change from the industry’s traditional, protracted model. “Time is money,” said Jeff Kloster, Principal Owner at The RHINO Group. “Collecting room and equipment information, and then sending it off-site for custom 3D mock-ups takes too long. The new solution streamlines that entire process. It minimizes post-construction downtime due to overlooked functional issues, and keeps our customers delivering important patient services and driving new business revenue.”
Interactive room layouts with 3D visualization bring the environment to life. The Powertrak measuring tool and perspective “point of view” features help reduce workflow inefficiencies and poor equipment placement. “Ordering products and designing spaces without seeing the products in place is not practical,” said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom. “Successfully designing an operating room or a surgical suite layout requires maximizing space with strategic equipment placement and proper flow to ensure efficiency and safety.”
Belongie adds, "Skytron is leading the industry with design-to-order technology that helps the customer visualize, explore, and operate products in virtual environments. The next phase is to augment that experience with immersive virtual reality."
