App development and AI concept: Object Recognition enables easy recognition of series and identification of the right spare parts for Hansa.
Just add digital to Hansa__
Almato implements HANSAMATRIX, the product configurator for uncomplicated and clear bathroom planning, and the Hansa 24h Service App for iOS and Android. The scope of services of the two digitisation projects includes the user interface design with a focus on the creation of navigation concepts, wireframes and mockups as well as the technical implementation. In addition to the user experience, an important focus of the projects is on high performance and security.
HANSAMATRIX – Product Configurator
The Individual software enables uncomplicated bathroom planning via web interface. Various possible combinations of fittings for washbasin, bathtub and shower can be displayed in order to achieve an optimum and harmonious result. Installation aids can then be displayed, downloaded and the installation can be continued at any time via code.
The CGI approach (Computer Generate Imagery) is a particular highlight in the creation of the configurator. Almato creates the entire 3D location as well as the 3D models of the bathroom installation including the preparation of the CAD objects. The business logic of the configurator considers defined dependencies between the products and only provides the user with suitable combinations to choose from.
Hansa 24h Service App
The app (native for Android and iOS) allows installers to easily search the entire product range and associated spare parts of the Hansa product range via article number, product family or PIX code. In this way, users can display detailed information such as dimensional drawings or assembly instructions. All information can be downloaded or added to a watchlist. This also makes offline work with the app possible, for example in the basement or carcass. In addition, technical support via video chat (WebRTC) is integrated in the app so that problems can be solved together on site.
The Apps use the Almato Mobile Backend as a Service. A cloud backend that already provides functions such as identity management or push as standard. To ensure an optimal user experience, a product management system and a CRM system have been integrated. For a high-performance search, the project team relies on ElasticSearch.
Concept: AI for object recognition__
Using Almato object recognition, an intelligent tap recognition system is currently being developed. This should enable installers to easily identify already installed Hansa products and order possible complementary products as well as suitable spare parts directly in the app.
