Their proactive adoption and development of sustainability practices for +40 years has ensured their catalog contributes to a large number of green building standards.
Kimball International Customer Service and Product teams were burdened by increasing number of requests for product sustainability data.
Their Sales teams also needed a single, well-organized source of easy-to-access digital product information in order to efficiently and effectively communicate their product offerings.
Kimball brand's design community partners were seeking faster ways to document product contributions to rating systems.
One web-based tool, accessible directly from all Kimball International brand websites, that streamlines sustainable decision making across a wide variety of product data while giving greater marketplace visibility to Kimball International's sustainable offerings.
The new service allows anyone selling or purchasing Kimball International furniture products to search, select, evaluate, compare and document the best sustainable products for their project needs.
Additionally, the expertise of their customer service and field sales teams was ramped up to directly handle inquiries with minimal training.
