People who are looking for a vehicle to handle their transport task these days first look on the Internet. For this reason, Mercedes-Benz has been offering all its truck customers the option to gather information about vehicle solutions using the Truck Online Configurator (TOC) for many years. The TOC has now been further improved and made compatible with the latest digital devices. The Truck Online Configurator is available at https://toc.mercedes-benz.com/ex/.
Configuration always starts with selecting a model series. Further information about the vehicle and equipment features can be accessed easily within the configuration process.
The following options are available after completing the configuration:
- Download of the vehicle configuration and the technical data
- 360-degree exterior view of the desired vehicle from four different angles
- Designing the three defined paint areas for cab, ornamental grille and detachable parts with the help of a sample selection of 18 colours for each.
The configuration can be sent directly to an authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer to establish contact. As a result, the TOC assists in the buying decision process and helps prepare the next process steps. The sales associate can now contact the customer for preparing a concrete quote.
The new TOC has a responsive design, which means it takes the format in which the user wants the desired information displayed into consideration. This responsive design also ensures an optimised display on mobile devices by adapting to their requirements profile. Information displayed side by side on a laptop across the entire width of the screen is automatically split vertically and the content is displayed at the bottom of the page. The same applies when using the TOC on a smartphone. This preserves the functionality of the web page and all information is accessible quickly, easily and in way that is user-friendly – independent of device, operating system and format.
With the latest version of the TOC, Mercedes-Benz provides interested parties on all mobile devices with a fast and easy overview of which products are suitable for the transport task at hand and establishes contact with a sales associate.
