Integra and Integra Research Launch Web Based "Build To Order" Product Configuration Tool

Websites allow customers to choose the ideal module configurations for the Integra DTR-10.5 AV receiver and Integra Research RDC-7.1 AV controller.

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (1/26/05) - Integra and Integra Research have launched web -based build -to -order product configuration tools that let consumers select among a variety of state -of -the -art audio and video modules to custom design the Integra DTR -10.5 A/V receiver or Integra Research RDC -7.1 A/V controller. Both products have nine card slots that address a variety of audio/video processing and interconnection capabilities and choices. Each customized receiver or preamp is assembled and tested at the company's facility before it is shipped to the dealer.


The two Build To Order web pages are at integrahometheater.com and integraresearch.com.

"The ability to customize the configuration of a receiver in this way is entirely new to the industry," said Eric Harper, the Integra, Integra Research, and Custom Installation Product Manager. "The Build To Order system allows dealers and consumers to purchase only what is needed for the particular application, while at the same time making the process as simple as ordering from an a la carte dinner menu at a fine restaurant."

Upon reaching the Build To Order page, the customer is asked for their email address and zip code. Once they have given this information, they are taken to a configuration page that lets them select the cards and options they want included on their custom unit. With each new selection, a rear panel photo is updated in real time to reflect additions, providing a visual indicator of the build configuration. When satisfied, the user simply clicks the submit button.

When a project is submitted on the site, a unique custom build number is issued for the user's project, and retained on file for reference by dealers. A confirmation email is sent to the consumer with this build number and a list of local dealers who can implement the purchase. In order to get pricing information and possibly purchase a unit, the consumer provides the build number to a dealer. The dealer can use that number to determine the price and place the order for that exact configuration.

Integra and Integra Research design and manufacture products that are designed to meet the needs of high -end audio/video enthusiasts and custom audio/video systems installers. Systems integration and convergence technology protocols include RS -232, A -BUS, IR and on -board Ethernet for network connectivity and TCP/IP control.
