People can’t hire you if they don’t know about you. So how do you get your business, product or service in front of decision-makers? Marketing, PR and good-old-fashioned sales. But what’s the right mix? What’s the right message? IntentPR’s Molly Klimas helps clients with a strategic approach to communication. She’s worked with Configura since 2008 to help build awareness of the company’s solutions to global audiences. With a deep understanding of Configura Extension Technology and the benefits it brings to multiple industries, she can help Configura Partners build awareness of their own products and services in the expanding marketplace.
In the Pacific Northwest there is a phenomenon called a convergence zone. This is created when two separate storm systems collide. In this zone the weather becomes unstable. When making the transition to CET, turbulent situations can occur as different software collide. Konvergent Solutions helps to ease the transition by personally assisting furniture dealers and manufacturers with the correct tools necessary to help them work more effectively and efficiently. By giving designers the correct tools earlier in the process, this allows them to be more creative and gives them an advantage during and after transition.
SILENT T CONSULTING
Silent T Consulting assists commercial interiors dealerships with the adoption of technologies including CET and its Extensions. Silent T Consulting specializes in improving the efficiency of the design and sales processes to driving higher profits for the dealership.
The company has developed a process that enables each dealership to assess their current level of CET competency. Using this, Silent T Consulting then prepares a customized plan to achieve higher levels of integration.
Specification tools, electronic catalogs, and product configurators are just a few examples of the e-tools users want and manufacturers are investing in. Techbox Collective is a dedicated platform for discussion and education about commercial interiors e-tools. No matter your experience level with e-tools, the community provides a space to ask, learn, and share information. The open lobby is for shared conversations between manufacturers, developers, dealer designers, and subject matter experts. Dedicated channels provide groups the attention to coach through specific topics and provide actionable resources to assist through the journey. If Google cannot answer your question about commercial interiors e-tools, Techbox Collective can.
THE DESIGN POP
Every organization has limited resources. Small dealers may not have the training budget that larger ones do. Some manufacturers offer training, webinars, or other services to aid our industry, while many others don’t offer anything. Either way, contract designers need training, best practices, and a community of knowledgeable individuals to be successful. The Design POP was created as a platform to serve, educate, and inspire the entire POPulation of contract furniture designers.
