Buying a work van just got a lot more efficient–and fun.
Knaack Mfg., maker of Weather Guard truck and van equipment, now offers Vehicle Solutions, a software tool that makes it easy for buyers to select van storage and options and to see exactly what their finished van will look like from the inside out. Available at most Knaack dealers and on the company's Web site, the software features interactive 3-D graphics that walk the user through a step-by-step process for selecting equipment, starting with a base trade package and working through zones to view, select, and add (or remove) options and accessories as desired. Then, they can virtually walk through the design, zoom in and out, rotate, and change views.
When used at a dealer location, the software keeps a running cost total as components are added and removed.
Once the selection process is complete, the buyer can print the design and materials list or upload to a local upfitter for a quote.
