Our clients are increasingly tech savvy and, to better serve them, Furnitureland South has embraced mobile technology to create a shopping experience that is unprecedented in the furniture industry.
Jamestown, NC (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Furnitureland South is excited to announce the release of an innovative, new iPhone® app designed to revolutionize the furniture shopping experience at the world’s largest furniture store. Whether clients pre-shop and plan their visit online at furniturelandsouth.com or begin their project in-store, they can easily access valuable shopping information and create a secure, personalized environment for storing information and images of their favorite home furnishings with the ease and sophistication of the iPhone.
Notable features of the application include guided navigation of more than 1.3 million square-feet of showroom space, and a robust product search that will quickly locate specific furniture items displayed in either of Furnitureland South’s two showroom buildings or the 300,000 square-foot Outlet Center. Clients can use their iPhone to scan Quick Response (QR) codes displayed on furniture and accessories to pinpoint their exact location, or save detailed product information and photos to a personal Wishlist. Shoppers can also use the iPhone’s camera to take their own photos and add them to an online Photo Album, or contact their expert Design Consultant with a simple touch of the screen.
“Our clients are increasingly tech savvy and, to better serve them, Furnitureland South has embraced mobile technology to create a shopping experience that is unprecedented in the furniture industry,” says Jason Harris, Executive Vice President. “We believe that the iPhone provides us with a unique opportunity to put better tools and more information in the hands of our customers and sales force alike.”
The new iPhone app is just one in a series of technological enhancements being adopted by the mega-furniture store. Furnitureland South’s newly re-launched website features an advanced product search that will sort and categorize items based on price, manufacturer, room, or style, and also includes a live feed to the company’s growing blog, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook pages. Additionally, in an effort to provide a more paperless buying environment, Furnitureland South will soon offer digital contracts and catalogs for consumers to view and approve on the iPad®.
The Furnitureland South App for iPhone is available on the App StoreSM and can be easily downloaded to the iPhone or iPod touch®.
