Like the motor industry, the current contract furniture market is saturated with ‘me-too’ type products; on the face of it, such similarity should make comparisons when procuring office furniture easier. However, given recent economic fragility, manufacturers and their dealer networks have had to make cuts, but at what cost to the client? For years, the industry has worked hard on not just the development of their product portfolios, but on the levels of service they provide during the procurement process and importantly the degree of care post installation. With the convergence of technology and work styles across continents notwithstanding fierce competition and reduced margins, the diversity of the market appears to be reducing. Furniture suppliers have to offer more at less cost in order to compete - service, innovation, guaranteed continuity and flexibility are as important as ever.
