City Furniture’s Retail Supply Chain Transforms the Customer Experience

Posted by Guadalupe Pagalday on May 10, 2018 10:11:17 AM

With HighJump’s flexible WMS platform, City Furniture increased accuracy and efficiency throughout its supply chain to create a seamless customer experience.

Florida furniture retailer City Furniture currently presides over 28 showrooms, one centralized million-square-foot distribution center, and a large (and ever-growing!) customer base. The company prides itself on its well-oiled supply chains, commitment to customer service, and efficient logistics.

In the past, City Furniture relied on homegrown WMS software that it could adjust as needed in response to shifting demands. Soon, however, it became clear that a more flexible and adaptive warehouse management system would be required to keep pace with the company’s growth.

I started writing this as I was flying back from our Elevate Users Conference, still energized from the experience. To help paint a picture, we had over 750 attendees from all of our product lines within HighJump, over 20 countries were represented and 120 different sessions were offered.

I want to start with thanking each and every one of our PROFITsystems attendees. It’s never easy traveling and putting the day-to-day work on hold, so we appreciate the willingness of so many to do so. I personally enjoyed meeting everyone and learning more about their operations.

Day one was full of mainstage presentations, starting with Chad Collins, HighJump CEO, highlighting 2017 and where we are looking to go tomorrow and beyond. Daymond John of ABC’s Shark Tank was the keynote speaker and delivered a powerful and inspiring message.  The day was rounded out with presentations highlighting product direction among the HighJump products and quite a few inspiring customer success stories and our 1st ever Customer Innovation Awards.
