Chief® Launches MOUNTBUILDER™ – The Industry’s First Online Product Configurator for Building and Specifying Mounting Solutions

mb01.jpgMinneapolis, MN. — (May 2008) – www.chiefmfg.com – Chief Manufacturing, the industry leader in projector, monitor and flat panel TV mounting solutions, is excited to announce the launch of its latest web innovation – the MOUNTBUILDER™ Product Configurator for Projector and Flat Panel Mounts and Accessories.

MOUNTBUILDER is an online tool that will revolutionize the way mounts are selected and specified. Users go to the Chief website and walk through a logical sequence of steps for building a mount configuration that visually appears before them on their computer screen. Drop distance and weight capacity are automatically calculated as parts are added. The parts list also builds and offers users the ability to change or add parts and quantities. The tool allows users to log in and create a password so they can save configurations for proposals or future jobs.

Key Features of MOUNTBUILDER:
• Visually builds an installation
• Builds a parts list
• Auto-calculates weight capacity and drop distance
• Saves configurations for future use
• Creates a PDF with image for proposals
• Includes Chief’s Easy Bid Spec Form

The Chief Web Development team created MOUNTBUILDER in an effort to further ease product selection, bids and ordering for Chief customers. The 8-month development cycle was challenging, but also exciting for the team.

“We are often told by customers that we offer so many mount accessories and applications that it’s hard to know which accessories to choose for each application,? said Laurie Englert, Director of Marketing. “With the goal of making this easier for the customer, the team went to work and came up with this incredible concept. We’ve shown it to customers and they are thrilled to get a visual tool of the many different options.?

Historically, Chief leads the industry with innovative tools, including its popular MountFinder™ Manufacturers Cross Reference Database that is updated daily and has the largest selection of flat panels and projectors in the industry.

MOUNTBUILDER currently offers a selection of Projector Mount configurations. Future phases will include modules for flat panel wall mounts; Carts and Stands; Monitors and Totally Custom Solutions. User testing will conclude the week of May 19th, with the launch planned for the end of May.
