Building Stronger Customer Relationships Using ConvertCalculator and Shifter Static

Hiromi Ito | May 14, 2020

When you think of a calculator, math class might be the first thing that comes to mind. But a calculator, when integrated with forms, can also be a powerful tool for building relationships with your customers. The internet is a wonderful place, but cold and generic interactions can result in your customers feeling like they’re interacting with a cold, impersonal machine. Giving customers something to interact with not only drives engagement, but also gives your customer a more personal connection to your brand. Adding a calculator to your site can do things like allow your customer to get a quote, discover savings, calculate pricing, or fill out an order form. A calculator can take a simple contact or checkout form and transform it into a customer touch point that builds trust by showing that you understand your customers needs and provides your customers with a clear and data driven argument for purchasing your products,  One solution for creating such a calculator is ConvertCalculator.
