Chief Unveils the Next Evolution of its RackBuilder® Online Rack Configuration Tool
Chief's web-based RackBuilder® application has been upgraded with new user-friendly features that make building complex rack solutions easier than ever
Weert, Netherlands (APR 2012) - - Chief, an industry leader in mount, rack and interactive solutions, is launching the next evolution of RackBuilder®, its intuitive web application for configuring Raxxess® Series rack solutions.
RackBuilder gives customers the ability to visually configure their custom rack solution and then generates a load diagram that can be used for building a solution. After gathering customer feedback, Chief has implemented new user-friendly features that make the application – RackBuilder 2.0 – easier to use and more powerful than ever. Upgrades include:
  • Smart logic and real-time notification about accessory compatibilities
  • An upgraded, streamlined interface
  • A 3rd party components compatibility database
  • Drag-and-drop editing
  • The ability to save a library of configurations
  • Access to MSRP pricing
  • A SpecBuilder™ automated collection option that gathers all necessary DWG, CAD and related documents
"The new RackBuilder tool provides a lot more functionality for our customers based on their recommendations,” said Rob Zurn, product manager for Chief rack solutions. "Built-in notifications alert the user if an accessory or third-party component won’t work in the chosen rack, or if you run out of U-spaces during your build. The application then allows you to easily go back to the previous step, swap out your selections and keep building. Based on customer feedback during development, this type of logic and flexibility is essential and we’re excited to introduce it.”
