Door entry and access control solutions specialist Videx has launched its renowned Product Builder application online. The digital variant includes all of the features contained in the original CD Product Builder that enables the end user to create an access control solution meeting their needs in an easy-to-use format.

Commenting on the move, Rob Sands (technical director at Videx UK) explained: “The online Product Builder is both desktop and mobile friendly and can be used with any browser on Windows, Android and Apple iOS devices and with any size screen.

Key features of the online Product Builder include a dashboard where users can see their current and previous builds. They can create, view, edit and then print a PDF of their build. The online version provides a very simple six-step wizard to build any type of system and create a parts list with prices, parts descriptions and images.

Sands added: “Users can also customise printouts and PDFs with their company logo and address, set discount structures and mark up prices and also stipulate what systems they prefer. The tool provides a tailored experience for each user.”
