Gerino Fanara is head of the XCYDE agency in North Rhine-Westphalia, based in Wuppertal.

Mr. Fanara, looking at your profession, the timber trade: How do you perceive the "will to digitize" within the industry?

The timber trade industry is in the midst of digital transformation, and the desire for digitization is clearly noticeable here, as it is throughout the building materials trade industry. Many manufacturers have already developed digital solutions. The only problem is that these are often isolated solutions that are still not used enough by the trade. What I am missing is a holistic concept. A concept that is equally beneficial for all players and that provides universal answers to questions such as uniform article creation and data preparation or suitable interfaces to the enterprise resource planning system.

Yes, customers have long lived, thought and acted digitally. They want to be able to inquire about, order or select materials regardless of time and place. Web stores and material selection platforms are appearing and changing the construction and real estate landscape. Anyone who recognizes the signs of the times can use innovative sales channels for their products and build loyalty with existing customers or tap into new target groups. However, this also means that those who do not do so will miss the boat and make themselves and their products increasingly invisible. And that will almost certainly be more expensive than implementing digital solutions.

With PORTER, we take a holistic view of real estate material selection. We combine many of the “isolated solutions” mentioned above into a coherent whole. All relevant players – from the manufacturer to the dealer to those responsible for material selection – come together on our platform and act synchronously accordingly. This ensures maximum efficiency. Efficiency that we also successfully ensure through the targeted use of future technologies such as artificial intelligence – for example, in determining quantities and areas – or interactive real-time applications for photorealistic inspections in new and existing buildings.
