Cole-Parmer Stirs in Product Configuration with Artifi Labs
Since 1955, Cole-Parmer has been a leading global source of Fluid Handling, Test & Measurement and Biosciences products, instrumentation, equipment and supplies. Their products and instruments are used extensively in the pharmaceutical, life sciences, industrial, environmental, and food and beverage industries and their portfolio includes industry-leading brands.
Cole-Parmer offers a line of Stuart® brand magnetic stirrers, hot plates, and hot plates stirrers. For this line of products, Cole-Parmer wanted to offer a product configuration experience that allowed shoppers to choose options such as different surface materials and colors. The company needed a product configurator capable of allowing nonlinear configuration so that shoppers could choose different options at any point during the configuration process, and that could support real-time pricing so that when a specific change was made to a product where a configuration effect was added, pricing would automatically update in the shopping cart.
To configure its Stuart® brand products, Cole-Parmer chose Artifi Labs. Artifi’s configuration engine allows Cole-Parmer’s hotplates, stirrers, and hotplate stirrers to be configured in five different ways: type, interface, voltage, surface, and color. These configuration options can be selected in a non-linear path, allowing for over 3,000 product variants. Artifi also allows for real-time pricing so Cole-Parmer shoppers can see the price of an item change as it is being configured, in addition to product information being dynamically updated as well, improving SEO. Through Artifi, Cole-Parmer has differentiated itself in the biosciences industry as a company that offers a variety of configuration options for its products, empowering shoppers with more choices.
