Although Chizel is a market leader in the domain and is known for high quality products, there was scope was simplification in the quote process. Due to the high cognitive load the main functionality of the app, which was to order 3D objects in different materials and colors, was not prominent enough. As a result, the user flow was slow moving and it also lead to high operations cost.
- To make the main functionality (placing order & getting quote) more prominent.
- Increase trust in the prototyping and process through creative design ideas.
- Remove the multiple mailing steps as made the process lenghty and time consuming.
- To reduce the overall clutter of the files and different screens without compromising on the content and information.

Chizel has a complicated business model involving man, machine & materials across the supply chain. In one meeting Brucira understood our need of auto-quoting system and with its intelligent design thinking, we solved the problem for once and all. The cycle is now cut down to 3 days instead of 7, we save 40% on Ops cost. Per week we are now able to handle 6X more contracts. Above all our B2B customers love it. Refreshing and professional!
