IHFC Building Creates Searchable Product Database

Furniture World News on

A3 IT Solutions, a Greensboro-based technology firm, has been selected by the International Home Furnishing Center (IHFC), as their preferred partner in developing a new website feature to the IHFC website www.ihfc.com

In an effort to expand IHFC’s services, A3 is creating a dynamically generated Product Search database that home furnishings buyers can access year round to find different product information displayed by IHFC exhibitors.  The system will give retailers and designers the ability to search for products by specific price point, category, style, material, and/or finish.  IHFC is continuing to explore ways to provide their industry buyers product information on a year round basis, not just during their semi-annual markets. 

“We selected A3 for the product search project based on their extensive knowledge of our company and of the furniture industry,” said Lee Kemp, Vice President, Creative Services at the IHFC, “We feel that this functionality offers a strong, competitive advantage for the IHFC and will increase value for our exhibitors.”  

About IHFC: Opening in 1921, IHFC was the original showroom building in High Point and after 89 years of expansion remains the centerpiece of the world’s largest home-furnishings trade show that attracts more than 80,000 participants twice a year to 2,000 showrooms covering 11.5 million square feet. IHFC alone is home to 500 of the leading home-furnishings manufacturers, including 13 of the top 20 companies, and covers 3.5 million square feet.  

About A3 IT Solutions: In addition to A3’s web development expertise, the company provides a variety of services including systems integration, Level 1 PCI hosting, search engine optimization, and managed IT solutions.
