Dassault Systèmes’ HomeByMe for Kitchen Retailers platform offers a fully online business model that allows customers to choose from a selection of kitchen cabinets and design their kitchens online without having to visit a physical store, the release stated.

“As a purely online company, providing an easy-to-use, web-based user experience was essential,” said President Jeff Robertson in the release.

It will help consumers highlight potential planning and design errors in real time, offer customized options, propose design alternatives and ensure up-to-date products and pricing along with collaboration with its designers.

Customers can create and modify door styles and colors, accessories and custom options according to their needs and budgets and make faster decisions based on 3D renderings of the expected finished look, the release stated.
