The new Roomle Configurator Interface
Roomle worked closely with its customers, gathering ideas and incorporating improvements into the new configurator. The result: a smart configurator interface with numerous new options that makes configuration with all parameters and structural elements even easier and more structured, while adapting to the needs of the user. A new mobile interface streamlined with desktop usage as well as new content features like smart sizing options, grouping of configuration options, intra section search and filter options round up the new product release scheduled for first week of June 2020.
*Configurator PRE-RELEASE for selected customers
You were exclusively selected as pre-release partner being able to test the new configurator interface, configuration options and integration into your e-commerce platforms before everyone else. It´s important to note that we are still in the consolidation phase of our new configurator product which is going to be rolled-out globally first week of June 2020.
Focus of the joint pre-release phase is to have you on board - giving active feedback on the usage, integration, functionality and performance - for introducing a top-class configurator product with an active proof.1. Pre-Release version - What has to be considered?
You are part of our pre-release program, this means you are testing a "beta version" (still in consolidation and active development) of our new configurator user interface. We are developing a highly dynamic and flexible product and therefor it is in the nature of things that part of our implementation might still change due to your feedback and special needs. Therefore we cannot guarantee that there won´t be any breaking changes.
This could mean that you have to slightly adapt the embedding on your side once again when we release our final product. We try to make sure that any final changes can be realized quite fast and in an efficient way on your side - documented with a clear guide.
Please be aware that you will not have access to the same feature set like in the old (current) configurator product from the beginning. For example, you will only have access to a reduced set of skinning options in the new interface*:
- customization of colors of navigation elements (buttons, boxes)
- hide / show buttons (e.g. AR, part list, show product dimensions, ....)
Most of the upcoming features can be delivered by automatic updates that do not require any change of the code of the embedding e-commerce destination. But some features won’t be deliverable with automatic updates. We will inform you ahead of time when this is the case and what needs to be done on your side.
The documentation is also not finally complete. So please do not hesitate to contact us in case you are missing any functionality you used in your current implementation.
* The new Roomle configurator interface is designed as open source project. This enables you to design individual interface layers or slightly adapt our template in an efficient and fast way using the Roomle Configurator SDK.
2. E-Commerce Integration - How does it work?
In order to change from the current version to the all new configurator version you have to fully change the embedding code in your online destination. This means you have to fully integrate the new configurator from scratch into your platform.
