SAN DIEGO – INSPI will present IO Closets, a web-based design and sales solution at the Closets Expo, April 28-29 at the San Diego Convention Center.

IO CLOSET is a closet configuration and management solution developed in collaboration with 3DVia’s HomeByMe for Retailers. It is designed to allow closet companies or their customers to create complete storage projects quickly and intuitively. The 100% web-based tool can be directly accessible on a closet company’s website or hosted on INSPI’s platform. IO Closet eliminates the need to install software on a desktop.

Using INSPI, a closet designer or consumer creates a 2D plan based on a space’s dimensions. From there, 3D visuals are applied, including storage modules, closet doors, and drawers, shelves, closet rods, etc. During the design process, Closet IO integrates business rules and has a complete project management stack. Thus, when creating a closet, the designer or consumer will only be able to assemble the combinations authorized by the brand, such as the minimum height to put a rod or recommended spacing between shelves. This intuitive feature speeds the design process and eliminates errors.

INSPI IO closet software

As the closet is being created, prices are instantly calculated, allowing the designer and the consumer to control and manage their budget efficiently. Once the configuration is complete, the seller's interface allows him or her to edit a quote, order the parts and coordinate the different vendors involved in the project including the manufacturer, deliverer, and installer. To help seal the deal, once the custom closet design is completed, the user can obtain a 3D photo rendering in real-time with instant HD images of the design project.

INSPI also offers for Kitchen, a web-based platform to design and sell custom kitchens available from OASIS Kitchens.
