Spare part catalogs

Customer examples: Spare part catalogs

Since 2018 the demand for spare parts catalogues with visual parts selection has been increasing.
More and more companies want to provide their customers with an easy way to order spare parts via digital catalogues.
Whether this is done via online shops or catalogue software, the goal is clear:
customer loyalty and efficient processes in the procurement of spare parts.
A few simple examples can be found here. They are all based on the possibilities of the .svg file format.
But the possibilities of the Composer are even more diverse. Talk to us, we will explain to you how the data can be processed
in Composer, how additional meta information can be added or how it can be transfered to online shops.

This spare parts catalogue is the oldest we have produced for a customer. The representation is rather classic, because the representation of the parts lists on the individual pages corresponds to the generally represented form, similar to that on paper.

In order to provide the user with easy and above all fast direct access, the display starts with an overview of all pages. So you can jump directly to a desired page.

As long as blue hotspots are displayed, you can jump to another display. Individual parts have green hotspots. If you click on it, a mail will be generated. Here, for example, the article number could be entered directly. Alternatively, a link to a shopping cart would also be possible here.

This example was developed as a basis for decision-making for further steps. Therefore, the individual pages are structured differently. Thus one recognizes fast which possibilities can be processed.

  • So you find the classic representation with a parts list and callouts that simply contain numbers in circles.
  • Alternatively, the callouts are displayed directly with the corresponding information (article number and description). A classic parts list display is therefore not necessary and the user can directly see which part receives which information. Via a shopping cart symbol a corresponding link can be set for further processing.

This example was the basis for a training to show the numerous possibilities for a spare parts catalogue.

  • Text buttons are used as jump addresses. Partly combined with images to select an assembly.
  • The quantity information on the Callouts is possible as soon as the components have been provided with parts list information.
  • Here, too, both representations with and without parts lists are used.
  • Manual hotspots with links tot he next page or sublevel are color-coded (e.g. blue or red) when the mouse pointer is touched.
  If the display is enlarged, the window can be moved by moving the mouse over the green bar.
