The Upgradebox® project started in 2006. First it should just allow to find the correct legacy upgrade product. But soon it grew based on customer requirements and lots of additional features and functions have been added. Today we have a powerful cross-selling-tool with API data transfer- and HTML / PDF data sheet generating abilities to support any kind of accessory manufacturer.
Many manufacturers have their own web configurators / product finders but no one uses the strength and the cross-selling abilities of the others to improve the own presence.
The Upgradebox® is the world-wide first manufacturer- and distributor-independent productfinder for legacy systems.
It is not difficult to find websites providing data for current system generations. But the collection of legacy systems where the real upgrade demand appears is unique. Current systems are listed anyway, but the focus is to cover the post market's demand.
The Upgradebox® can easily be embedded in a website of a reseller shop and be connected to the shopping basket or the product information page.
The basic version (frame-in-frame with premium manufacturers and advertisements) is free of charge for distributors and resellers. The API (XML) version, several manufacturer / product add-ons and an advertisement-free version are available for a monthly fee.
