Meyer GmbH

Meyer GmbH distributes forklift attachments, forks and lift tables. As a full-range supplier, the company offers all products centrally from a single source. Spare parts for the MEYER and BOLZONI AURAMO brands are stored in extensive central warehouses in Salzgitter and Korschenbroich. In addition to the sale of new equipment, the scope of services of Meyer GmbH also includes the purchase and sale of used equipment, repairs and the rental of attachments. In addition, the company provides a large decentralized service technician network.


The initial situation

In order to be able to offer end customers with different forklift models suitable accessories, the employees of Meyer GmbH and their sales partners used a complex Excel spreadsheet.<br/> In addition to the correct model selection, the spreadsheet could also be used for price calculation and a calculation for dimensional and attribute changes for different tine lengths.

After the quotation parameters were passed on to the end customer, Meyer GmbH employees supplemented them with schematic drawings and photos of the fork positioners and sent the collected information in the form of a pdf quotation.<br/> As the integration of updated data was difficult in addition to the strong personnel commitment, Meyer GmbH sought optimization here.



The solution

Based on mockups, the requirements for an interactive price list were first defined in workshops. After the conception phase, the actual implementation of the web application began.<br/> Besides the integration of the business logics from the Excel spreadsheet and the setup for 4 languages, a complex user administration was created and attention was paid to a manufacturer-dependent branding of the user masks. The technical realization was done using PHP, Javascript and PostgreSQL.


> Consulting and workshop implementation.

> Technical and functional conception.

> Interface and application development.

> Server setup

> Design & deployment of database and transfer of data.

> Maintenance and further development



The result

With the help of the new web application, Meyer GmbH's sales partners will be able to find the right accessories for their customers' forklift trucks directly online. The interactive price list ensures the constant availability of up-to-date data. This enables the sales partners to make reliable statements on prices and delivery times without time-consuming consultations.<br/> Since the offer is generated in pdf format directly in the online tool and calculation details as well as schematic drawings and photos are integrated automatically, there is no need for a separate request to the employees* of Meyer GmbH. These are continuously informed about the quotation process by an automated email notification.

With the interactive price list, TRIOLOGY GmbH, in cooperation with Meyer GmbH, has created a tool that can generate and send quotations with reliable information in seconds - a clear competitive advantage that will soon also be used for sales activities in the Netherlands and France.
