This often gives you the flexibility to also increase your margins. The Kit Builder 3D product customizers’ advanced tools can deal with very complex products and customisation requirements, any product can be customized to your exact requirements.
3. Increase engagement, brand loyalty and social sharing
With many stores closing it is harder and harder for brands to truly interact with their customers, but a product customizer can do just that.

In return this increases your brand reach and encourages others to also engage with your site. Kit Builder works links to social media platforms at the press of a button making it easy to share.
