Enhancing User Experience with Interactive Calculators

User Experience with Interactive Calculator

As competition continues to stiffen among Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) selling goods and services online, user experience can play a critical role in converting leads into customers. Differentiation is key, too, and often times you need to take that extra step to ensure that visitors to your website understand the value they’re getting as customers.

Approaches to improving user experience vary, but many of them require substantial IT knowledge or costly investments, both of which might pose problems for SME owners as far as accessibility is concerned.

Our team has addressed this dilemma with Calconic, a custom interactive calculator builder. The idea is relatively simple but it’s extremely cost-effective and can be a real game-changer in terms of user experience and subsequent conversion rates.

Calconic let’s you build and integrate calculators of all types into your website for customers to use.

Why use interactive calculators?

Having a visually appealing and interactive calculator is an effective way to engage customers and give them timely and accurate access to information about prices, potential savings, delivery costs, the amount of a given product they might need, and so much more.

Giving potential customers access to precise data and numbers empowers them to make informed decisions and can ultimately facilitate their shift from shopping cart to checkout.

Moreover, interactive calculators can be used to process orders and payment, help simplify and even automate parts of your sales work, produce quality leads, and cut down on the time you spend interacting with leads that aren’t really interested in your product or service in the first place.

In addition to enhancing a website’s user experience, Calconic makes building a web calculator super easy. You can build and add your interactive calculator to your site in a few simple clicks using the drag-and-drop editor, customize its look so it integrates seamlessly into the design of your website, and choose from a wide range of options to build anything from a basic to a more complex web calculator.

If you’re not exactly sure what kind of interactive calculator you want, or need some inspiration to get started, Calconic already has tons of ready-to-use templates that can be added directly onto your website or be further customized to suit your particular needs.

What’s more, Calconic’s web calculators look great on both mobile and desktop websites, and can either be embedded on a specific page of your website or appear as a pop-up – you decide.

Again, it’s a relatively simple solution, but its effectiveness and value, together with the seemingly endless possibilities customizations allow for, can make it an integral part of almost any website.

One of the most important factors that makes Calconic such a dynamic solution is the team behind it. We are committed to our product and do whatever we can to support our customers and help them build the perfect calculators for their websites.
