Konecranes has updated its efficient search engine, the Crane Advisor. The browser-based tool lets users find the ideal crane system for their project in four simple steps. It intuitively inquires about requirements such as industry, maximum capacity, span width, and class of use.
Crane Advisor was first launched in English in September 2017, and already has more than 4,000 users across the world. Konecranes recently updated the tool to include multiple languages. The intuitive user interface of the Crane Advisor also works with all devices, such as smartphones, tablets, or desktop PCs.
“More than 4,000 visitors have already tried our tool in only a few months,” said Mark Goringe, Konecranes Industrial Service Area Director, Mid-West Europe. “We also want to continuously expand the choice of languages. For example, we are currently planning a Spanish version. Other languages will follow.” The tool is already available in French, and Chinese, German, Russian, and more.
In addition, Konecranes STORE launched online in diverse countries with more than 100,000 products, from electric hoists, to rope guides through to complete hoist gearboxes. Moreover, relevant instructions for use are available in various languages.
“We are constantly improving our STORE – right now we are working on introducing payment by card in Europe,” added Goringe.
