A Custom Instant Quoting System

Overview

L-1 USA LLC, a leading manufacturer of laser-cut tubes and pipes, previously relied on manual methods to generate estimates for their customers. This process was time-consuming and inefficient, leading to slow turnaround times. L-1 USA approached falcani to develop a custom web application that would automate the estimate generation process and improve the overall customer experience.

Our Solutions:

falcani developed a custom web application with two key features:

Customer Interface:

This user-friendly interface allows customers to:

  • Create accounts
  • Upload 3D STEP models of their desired tubes or pipes
  • Receive instant estimates based on pre-defined pricing structures
  • 3D Model Visualization

Admin Dashboard:

L-1 USA administrators can access a comprehensive dashboard that displays real-time information on customer estimates, including:

  • Model details
  • Pricing calculations
  • Estimate statuses
  • Materials library
  • Users and their discounts
  • Internal accounts
  • 3D Model Visualization

Behind the Scenes:

The core of the application leverages the power of C++ and OpenCASCADE Technology:

  • Automated Model Analysis: Uploaded 3D models are automatically analyzed to recognize shapes like round, square, rectangle, angle, oval, sheet, channel, and beam profiles.
  • Instant Price Calculation: Extracted data from the model analysis, such as principal dimensions and volume, is used to automatically calculate accurate and instant estimates.

Benefits for L-1 USA

The custom web application developed by falcani offers L-1 USA several key benefits:

  • Enhanced Customer Experience: Customers receive estimates instantly, improving satisfaction and reducing wait times.
  • Increased Efficiency: Streamlined workflows free up valuable time for L-1 USA staff, allowing them to focus on other priorities.
  • Improved Accuracy: Automated calculations eliminate the risk of human error in manual estimates generation.
  • Data-Driven Decisions: Real-time insights from the admin dashboard provide L-1 USA with valuable data for informed business decisions.

Why are we telling we used C++ and OpenCASCADE?
