The PumpSelector as a comprehensive communication platform
The advantage for potential pump buyers is obvious: Suitable pumps from different manufacturers can be selected according to specific selection criteria. And to ensure that the request and quotation procedure remains clear, the entire communication takes place in the impeller.net customer portal. All manufacturers are contacted separately and all consulting processes are bundled at a central point. Besides, all offers use a uniform database, which makes it possible to compare them directly with each other.
The central storage of all communication processes is also a considerable advantage for manufacturers, allowing sales and management to keep track of open processes. Pricing, including discounts, can be edited directly in the portal. The quotation is generated as a PDF file and sent directly to the customer in the portal. Due to the possibility of creating different consultant accounts, sales transactions can be assigned to individual employees. This ultimately benefits the potential buyers as well, since they are assigned a personal consultant.
Thanks to the additional languages - French, Italian and Spanish - a wider range of customers can be reached in the respective national language. The availability of the new languages extends across the entire portal and is included in both the PumpSelector and the Magazine sections. Articles that do not exist in the respective language are made available as machine-translated versions. As a result, advertisements, company profiles, calendar entries and vacancies can also be booked in any of the available languages.

"In the coming weeks, we will continue to work on enhancing user-friendliness and gradually add new functions to the offer," comments Jens-Uwe Vogel, Managing Director of VSX - VOGEL SOFTWARE GmbH and publisher of the impeller.net Internet portal. "With the pump encyclopedia, we also want to provide the user with a broad know-how on pump technology and give practical tips on design. In addition, the section of the event calendar is being revised".
