Problem or Opportunity
Industry issues: 1) Today, many manufacturers have their own catalog site, but not all. Manufacturers do not publish prices in the public domain, and if they publish prices, then in the online store of the factory. 2) When there are no prices, a price list is needed to understand pricing, and the factory gives representatives and sellers access to price lists separately. Accordingly, there is no convenient and quick popularization of goods from the manufacturer and seller to a private client. 3) Stores and showrooms convey information to the end customer only in person or pointwise. The selection of interior items takes place in the format of viewing photos, without prices and filters, which today is not informative and takes a long time. The client knows his budget, but does not know the prices, as he views the products in the format of pictures, does not receive complete information for quick analysis. 4) If the online store of the factory has prices on its website, then it is a direct competitor to the seller himself. 5) If the manufacturer has its own website, but does not have prices, then the end customer cannot find a dealer in his region who will tell the prices. there is no complete information about points of sale. 6) It is important to partner with reliable companies. Each supplier has its own format for accepting orders and maintaining availability (CRM system, website, Google Sheets, a group in the messenger), it takes a lot of time to fix an order. 7) The end client, turning to the interior designer, in fact, may not implement the project. Designers most often draw expensive furniture, which in fact is difficult to acquire (or does not exist at all). With rare exceptions, a catalog with an acceptable budget is taken as a basis.
