New Global Style Validation (GSV) feature to help streamline how dealers order products
LAVAL, Quebec, Sept.14, 2015 — KraftMaid® cabinetry, one of the nation’s most well-known and respected cabinetry brands, is pleased to announce a new enhancement to its 2020 digital content catalog to streamline product selection for designers. In collaboration with 2020, the world’s leading provider of applications and enterprise solutions dedicated to interior design, space planning and furniture manufacturing, KraftMaid Cabinetry is the first manufacturer to offer its digital content catalog with the new Global Style Validation (GSV) feature to its dealers.
The GSV feature provides a new interface and adds intelligent rules-based validation to the global style and pricing selections that guarantee the correct product combination when a designer submits his/her order to KraftMaid. For example, when the designer selects the desired wood species for the cabinetry the application will only offer the door styles and finishes available for that selection. With the built-in logic of GSV, the user will not be able to order an invalid combination.
“At Masco Cabinetry we strive to keep all of our brands at the forefront of innovation,” stated Scott Wilson, Director of Customer Data, Masco Cabinetry. “2020 is the industry leader when it comes to kitchen and bath design software and we were pleased to be able to collaborate with them to bring this time-saving feature to our KraftMaid dealers. We plan to deliver this feature in other brand catalogs over the coming months.”
2020 and KraftMaid have worked closely on this new enhancement and the KraftMaid GSV catalog has been thoroughly tested during development by kitchen designers. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The new catalog streamlines a designer’s workflow and improves customer satisfaction with its speed and focus on validated product configurations.
“2020 is continually looking for ways to improve the design process for our users,” stated James Wilson, Director of Content Product Management, 2020. “By teaming up with forward thinkers like Masco Cabinetry, we are able to get valuable insight into what the users need, work through new concepts and deliver industry-changing enhancements.”
