in-store sales compared with last year.
IKEA is a global home furnishing brand that lives in the hearts of many people. IKEA business idea is to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low, that as many people as possible will be able to afford them.
Thanks to the app, the customers can plan a session at the store or remotely. All the IKEA departments were transformed to prepare online orders, which were delivered with the click & delivery service.
Their sales process was optimized and automated for orders of kitchens, bedrooms and other departments. The app that we developed includes frontend and backend integrations with IKEA systems and it’s being used across departments by IKEA in 8 stores in 3 countries and 4 languages.
Covid hit IKEA out of nowhere as a huge challenge but also a great opportunity to launch new projects in the matter of hours or days.
Their main sales channel – IKEA stores for face-to-face meetings with customers, had to be transformed in a matter of days to completely remote digital meetings with potential customers. The staff was used to working in excel, emails and calendars which was causing miscommunication issues and a lack of effectiveness.
IKEA gathered the restrictions that were in place from all countries, so that we could program the app in a way that would agree not only with the legal requirements, but also with the IKEA environment. The issue was that IKEA had fragmented communication across multiple channels which we needed to unify in a single platform. The new platform digitized team workflows across 3 countries.
