Furnitureland South Selects Icovia Interactive Room Planner

Furniture World News on

Icovia, a leading provider of online interior design solutions for the home furnishings industry, announced that Furnitureland South has selected Icovia as its exclusive interactive room and interior design planning solution. The world’s largest home furnishings showplace, Furnitureland South’s is increasing its market share in an industry hit hard by the economic downturn. The firm credits the increase to a boom in website traffic, international buyers and client referrals. “Our website has become a vital tool for attracting new customers, particularly internationally,” commented Jason Harris, executive vice president, Furnitureland South. “For customers who can’t visit our showroom, we need to provide an online shopping experience that allows them to (realistically) visualize their interiors furnished with our products. Although www.FurniturelandSouth.com has offered its own internally-developed room planning tool for years, we have decided to switch to the Icovia solution because it is easier to use and provides more features, such as the ability to design in metric for our international customers. We also expect that using Icovia will reduce IT costs and improve the overall customer experience.” “Icovia welcomes Furnitureland South to our growing clientele of leading furniture retailers who have chosen to adopt Icovia over their own solution,” commented Steve Street, CEO of Icovia. “We have invested thousands of hours and over five years of research and development to create what is considered the industry’s online leading space planning software. Icovia provides the ability to provide a highly customizable shopping experience to customers while reducing total ownership costs.” For more information on Icovia version 5 visit www.icovia.com.
