Get a behind-the-scenes look at how Trelleborg Sealing Solutions operates. -By Jan Sklucki
The blending of digital and offline is revolutionizing how business is carried out in all industries and market segments. A rush to innovate and take advantage of newly developed technologies draws together the best of both worlds, offering unique and futuristic experiences that exceed the capabilities of a purely digital or purely concrete experience.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has been involved in creating and using digital tools as soon as the concepts were possible, and in 2019 launched its ground-breaking and industry-leading Virtual Tour.
Any tour has restrictions on where you can go, such as hazardous or dangerous areas and active production floors. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions thought that using new digital platforms, it could allow its visitors access that wouldn’t usually be possible.
“We wanted to find new ways to re ally show our customers how we work and what we’re doing, with a deep dive behind-the-scenes of our facilities,” says Konrad Saur, Vice President – Innovation & Technology at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. “Some areas are just not accessible during tours, and perhaps there are particular reasons a customer can’t get to a facility physically. It’s not necessarily a replacement for a site visit, but certainly an enhancement – permitting access beyond what’s usually possible,”
Visitors are guided around the facility by a ‘digital moderator’, a chaperone to help you to build your own personalized tour, focusing on what you want to see or interact with in a 360° virtual environment enriched with additional digital content. For the most important topics, extra help is needed to explain the subject clearly.
“Our experts feature prominently throughout the tour, speaking on a wide range of topics and offering their unique insights. These focus on our innovations and where we can apply our expertise as a company.
If a customer is interested, extra webinars are available for even more detail on selected topics. And, if any questions remain, customers can live chat with experts who are on hand to answer any other queries – a feature completely unique to this kind of platform,” says Holger Baur Director European Marketing & Communications at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has a lot to show, with a huge breadth of products and knowledge in many applications, and the tour provides a unique way to get up-close in an interesting fashion. Taking the tour allows you to not just see innovative products and materials but go inside state-of-the-art R&D laboratories and Trelleborg facilities.
