Using Envision Throughout the Entire Buying Process For Akel Homes, Envision addresses three important areas of the new home design process—pre-sale ideation, filling the gap between contract and the first design appointment, and improving efficiency during the appointment itself. "Envision literally became our design center, open 24/7, allowing our home buyers to shop when, where, and how they want," said Mr. Akel. "And even post-pandemic, Envision is a tool we can't live without." Pre-Sale Ideation During the pre-sale period, home shoppers can browse master plans and see the different selections available. This gives shoppers a preview of options and relieves the pressure once they get to the design studio to understand their tastes and preferences better. This feature is especially important for Akel as they cater to a large number of out of state, relocating buyers who can't visit in person. Filling The Gap Envision is also the bridge, keeping Akel home buyers engaged and interested between contract signing and their first design studio appointment. This was especially critical over the past year when there was a surge in home purchasing, and design center appointments were delayed due to unprecedented demand. Improving Efficiency A buyer simply needs to create an account, shop via the intuitive manufacturer menu, and either save or favorite their selections. At any time in the future and at their own pace, whether it's at 2 pm or 2 am, they can come back, evaluate their choices and make changes. Once it is time for their design studio appointment, Akel has noticed how much smoother and faster the in-person meeting goes because of the pre-selections made through Envision. As Mr. Akel says, "People hate doing homework but this is the kind of homework they like to do." "Envision literally became our design center, open 24/7... Envision is a tool we can't live without." © 2020 Builders Digital Experience, LLC. All rights reserved. CS-Akel Homes-0521 B U I L D E R C A S E S T U D Y | A K E L H O M E S
