1) Search using the graphically prepared product category
An example: You are a manufacturer of kitchen appliances in a wide range of variants. Now one of your customers needs a spare part for a slicer. To help your customer quickly find the right spare parts catalog, he can choose the optical search method: Using an upstream tile view, your customer navigates from the higher-level product family to the corresponding product group to the right product. By clicking on the corresponding product, your customer is taken directly to the spare parts catalog for the slicer he is using and can identify the spare part he needs.
Catalog creators have complete flexibility in dividing up the individual categories. It is thus possible to insert logical intermediate levels, which greatly simplify navigation for the end customer or service technician.
It becomes even more descriptive if you use corresponding images in addition to the product categories.
