(Havertys) has selected Icovia® as its exclusive online interior design and space planning solution.

Commented Ed Clary, Havertys’ Chief Information Office and Senior Vice President, Distribution: “The Icovia room planner is an essential service our customers clearly need. The customer's purchase decision can be a long process. Many factors, including the placement of the furniture in a room setting, are very important to them. We considered building a planner but decided on Icovia because it is not only the top-tier room planner, but also based on the tight website integration possible with their system. In Icovia we have a seamless integration that makes the use of www.havertys.com and the Icovia planner an easy operation for any customer.” He continued: “It is common for our salespeople to send plans to a customer and vice versa.
