MultiMedia, CD-ROMs and Visualization Tools

An interactive CD-ROM or online visualization wizard can be an excellent compliment to your existing marketing strategy and sales tools. With a MultiMedia application, you can demonstrate concepts that may be difficult to communicate through printed materials. You can also showcase your entire product line, allowing outside sales representatives a powerful, convenient sales tool.


FlatwareMedia Designs developed a MultiMedia CD-ROM sales tool for YardFX, a manufacturer of custom designed garden buildings in Canada. With a click of the mouse, users can configure their own building, changing models, colors and options to display over 73.8 billion combinations!


Variation 1

YardFX is a manufacturer of custom designed garden buildings in Canada. They have recently expanded into the US, setting up dealerships in many states.

Variation 2

Each dealer can display approximately 6-10 buildings on site. There are 22 models to choose from, each with multiple door and window styles available, as well as several color options for each feature, shingle choices, etc. In total, there were over 73.8 billion possible combinations! YardFX was faced with a unique challenge: how do you demonstrate the variety of options available, and show customers what their new building will look like before they order?

Variation 4

The solution? FlatwareMedia Designs (as HCS) developed a CD-ROM which allowed customers to pick and choose their options, and view their new building instantly. Sales associates could then print out a list of specifications and a picture of the model for the customer. A generic version of the CD is available which omits prices, or dealers can order a customized version with their own price calculations and contact information included.
