We developed a web-based product configuration platform that helped Hawa Sliding Solutions transform the CX while reducing cost and time to market. Find out how we did it.
They recognized the issues and translated them well into a WebApp. They managed to improve the solutions compared to the one we first thought about. The way they were able to organize the project structure was of a huge value!"
Hawa Sliding Solutions is a Switzerland-based global market and technology leader for sliding systems on buildings, in buildings, and on furniture. They needed a new product configuration web application as the existing solutions were outdated and no longer matching their business needs.
We conceptually designed and developed an innovative web application that improved their business processes and enabled them to work in an agile and cost-efficient way.

In 2017, two sister companies: Hawa and EKU integrated into Hawa Sliding Solutions. Both companies had separate databases and product planning applications. As a result, Hawa Sliding Solutions needed a new planning tool that would help them introduce their merged and reorganized products to the market.
Additionally, each time they wanted to add a new product family, Hawa Sliding Solutions had to make a costly investment in external software development services.
To propose the best possible solution, we carefully analyzed all the associated business aspects and use case scenarios. Our engineers invested a significant amount of time and effort in a deep understanding of the product development specification.
For example, our engineers learned about AutoCAD and studied the ways to digitally read, analyze and process the .DXF files. It allowed us to map out an alternative solution, that was more comprehensive compared to the one Hawa Sliding Solutions had originally requested.
The complete dedication and commitment of our engineers were met with the flexibility and open-mindedness of Hawa Sliding Solution. This synergy allowed us to create a customer-centric application that transformed their sales and marketing-related business processes.
As a result, we developed a new product configurator platform. It allows Hawa Sliding Solutions to autonomously create a product configurator for each new product family and make necessary changes and updates dynamically. The user experience was simplified and improved, offering their clients and partners a new range of practical features.
- Autonomous creation of a configurator for each new product family
- Dynamic changes and updates
- Intuitive interface and automated processes
- No manual data entering
- Automatic generation of customized planning documents
- A sales feature that connects resellers with clients
