Q: Will all the online tools available on MiddleAtlantic.com be available on LegrandAV.com?
ANSWER: The most popular tools will be accessible through LegrandAV.com at the time of the transition. These include a new and improved 3D Rack Design Tool, and a Custom Rackshelf Finder. Links to the ViewPoint Designer, and the Wiremold and LundHalsey Configurators will also be accessible.
The following tools will be added to LegrandAV.com in the months following the transition: UPS Runtime Calculator, PDW Custom Power Configurator and the Thermal Calculator.
Next year, new experiences will be designed to view product inventory (currently called the Pricing & Availability tool) as well as generate real-time price lists (currently called My Price List). More information is provided on these in questions below.
Q: Why are you replacing the current Rack & Furniture Configurator?
ANSWER: We are evolving the digital experience with an enhanced Design Tool that will become the foundation to add other Legrand | AV brands at a future date. We are also working to improve many of the pain points of the current tool.
Q: How do I log in to the new Design Tool?
ANSWER: Your login for LegrandAV.com and the new Design Tool are connected. So, if you are signed into the website, you will also be signed into the tool.
Q: How will the new Design Tool be different from the current configurator?
ANSWER: One of the most exciting parts of the new Design Tool is the ability to configure Racks in 3D! We’ve also gathered a lot of feedback on the current tool and improved the overall usability, the process of configuring and have improved project management.
With the new Design Tool, there will be a slight change in finalizing a project. In the current tool, a quote is automatically generated when a user finalizes their project. In the new tool, the user will need to follow steps to initiate a quote. This will allow customers to include freight estimates for a more accurate quote.
One of the biggest changes is that technical furniture will no longer be part of the Design Tool. We’ve made the technical furniture ordering experience much easier on LegrandAV.com, and you will be able to configure those products right on the product pages within the site.
Q: Will all Racks and their compatible products be in the new tool?
ANSWER: The new Design Tool will allow users to configure the BGR, VWM, and SNE rack series at its launch. The DWR, SR, ERK, and EWR series will be added in the month or two following launch.
Most of the compatible products will be available in the tool with the following exceptions:
- We will not be adding products that are retired, will be retired soon, or are rarely chosen in the current tool.
- At launch, 3rd party components will not be available to add to configurations; however, they will be available early next year.
Q: What will happen to my saved Projects and Designs in the current tool?
ANSWER: For any Projects that you have in Draft mode, we encourage you to finalize these in the current tool before December 4th. Any projects that are still in Draft mode after December 4th will not carry over to the new tool.
After December 4th, we will be pulling all finalized projects out of the current tool and storing the information and downloads in a database. We will then import these projects back into the new Design Tool by the end of January. There will be a period of approximately 1-2 months before you will be able to see these past/archived projects in the new tool. We encourage you to save any of the downloads to your computer that you may need during that time. If you do need to get downloads from any of your finalized projects after the transition, you can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will be able to provide them to you.
Q: Can I access the Quotes generated from the current tool and new Design Tool in the My Account section of LegrandAV.com?
ANSWER: Yes, for any projects you’ve finalized in the current tool, or any quotes you submit in the new tool, you can view these at any time in the “Quotes” section of your My Account menu.
Q: Will I be able to change/edit projects from the current tool in the new Design Tool?
ANSWER: No, in the new Design Tool users will be able to access high level information and downloads only. You will not be able to edit any of these archived projects.
Q: How do I configure technical furniture products if they will no longer be in a Design Tool?
ANSWER: On LegrandAV.com, you can configure technical furniture right on the product’s webpage. For example, if you visit the C5 product page, you will be able to select the Style, Material, Wood Finish, Door Type and Vent Finish, as wells as choose options for Table Box Cutouts, Handle, Lock, Cable Grommet, Flip Side Shelf and Display Mount. Because these configurations will no longer be in the Design Tool, images on the product page will be a close representation of your selections but won’t fully represent the exact configuration.
Q: If the PDW configurator will not be available right away when the site moves over, how do I configure a PDW power strip?
ANSWER: We are working hard to ensure you will be able to configure a PDW power strip as soon as possible. However, there is a chance you may not be able to for a couple weeks after the site transition.
You will still be able to order or reorder any past configurations you’ve submitted. Please contact email@example.com for assistance.
Q: Since the Pricing & Availability tool will no longer be available, where can I find the inventory of products?
ANSWER: Each product page will show the current lead time for that product. If you need the current inventory of an item, please reach out to our customer care team through Live Chat and they will quickly be able to assist you.
Next year, we will be designing an experience where customers will be able to see the inventory and/or availability of all our AV brands and products.
Q: Since the My Price List tool will no longer be available, where can I find my price lists?
ANSWER: Once logged into LegrandAV.com, most customers will be able to see their price lists in the My Account dropdown menu. For some customers, you will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your lists.
Next year, we will be designing an experience where customers will be able to generate real-time price lists for all our AV brands and products.
