For an individual stair company to create and purchase a drag and
drop stair design tool such as StairArtist®, it would require an
initial investment of over $20,000.00. The estimated cost
includes paying for a software developer, a graphic artist, a
photographer, a web developer, baluster and newel samples,
photoshopping staircase images, and the cost of putting it all
together. The cost of something like this is out of
the price range for most companies.
Not only have tools like this been unaffordable for most companies
in the past, but the project of putting it together is extremely
time-consuming. Such a project rarely takes less than
six months to put together, and some companies spend years, only
to receive a tool they still aren't completely happy with.
You no longer have to worry about managing the creation
and development of a software tool, when your focus should be on
what you do best, and that is selling stair parts.
Adding a stair design tool to your website has never
been easier or more affordable.
, it is much easier for your customer to
visualize what he or she is buying. Your sales
team no longer needs to provide drawings for your customers.
The time required to close a sale is therefore greatly reduced.
You and your customers can create entire portfolios of
staircase layouts, and see them side by side, by sharing StairArtist®
constructions on Pinterest pin boards. This will
allow you to close deals more quickly.

Your customer can spend his or her own time, without the aid
of a sales person, creating stair layouts that give him or her
a better idea of what he or she is buying. This reduces
the amount of time your sales personnel need to spend with
your customers, thus lowering the cost of each sale.
Because you no longer need to provide sample staircase layouts in
your catalog, the cost of your catalog is also reduced.
If you are a small operation and do not have your own catalog,
gives your customer the feeling he or she is dealing
with a much larger organization, giving you greater credibility.
In addition, you will receive free and powerful Internet marketing
through social network sharing of staircase layout constructions
that you and your customers perform. Social network shares
that you and your customers create can and will be shared repeatedly
by others, giving your company increased exposure.

It is often necessary for your sales personnel to travel to the home
of your customer. Many times, that sales person will take
samples of stair parts with them. If your customer does
not like those samples, several such trips may be required.
With StairArtist®, this travel by members of your sales team is
StairArtist® effectively automates your showroom. There
is no longer need for warehouse personnel to fetch parts and
lay them out on the floor for your customers to only respond,
"No, let's try this instead." Set up a computer
in your showroom, make StairArtist® available on it, and pay
less for physical showroom space.
Because StairArtist® makes it easy for your customer to visualize
stair patterns, he or she is more likely to be pleased with
the products you sell to him or her and install in his or her home.
