As companies look for spaces that feel bespoke, a designer’s job is getting harder. They’re spending many hours looking for inspiration, tracking down details from numerous manufacturers and scanning sites for unique statement pieces. Facilities and real estate teams are also spending increasing amounts of time trying to coordinate efforts across a wide range of manufacturers and schedules. Listening to designers and clients describe how time consuming these frustrations can become is what inspired a team of people at Steelcase to ask, “How can we leverage technology to provide easy access to diverse products and create a streamlined and reliable ordering and delivery process?” Their answer is Steelcase Marketplace, a new online platform for easily sourcing and specifying products from a curated collection of over 3,000 options from 50+ brands. Add the expertise of the Steelcase Operations team and complex projects just got a lot easier.
