Episode 101 Show Notes
The office furniture industry desperately needs more e-commerce solutions. We need to break down the lines of competition and start collaborating in a way that benefits not only us and our businesses, but also our customers. Both Kurt and Matt of No Mondays are working to do that with their innovative platform and solution.
Kurt and Matt both entered the office furniture space through the lens of marketing rather than sales. Through helping brands to reinvent themselves, they realized that one of the issues within the industry is how much we compete against each other rather than unite to elevate.
After years of working together and the challenges of the pandemic, they both realized that one of the most crucial pieces missing from the industry is a reliable e-commerce platform that connects the consumer, the dealer, the designer, and the independent rep.
So they sought to create it themselves.
No Mondays will revolutionize the way we interact with our customers and with our partners within the industry. Are you ready to step into the future of the contract interiors industry? Then listen in to learn more.
