HAT Contract and SiS Ergo Launch HomeWork: A New E-Commerce Website for Dealers
Free and Customizable, Website Provides WFM Furniture, Delivery and Installation Solutions
HAT Contract and SiS Ergo, leading workspace ergonomic brands of parent company Innovative Office Products (IOP), announce the launch of HomeWork, a new e-commerce solution that helps commercial furniture dealers provide work-from-home furniture, delivery and installation needs for their customers.
Available to dealers at no charge, HomeWork is an easy-to-use B2C website. Dealers, their customers and end-users can purchase an array of HAT Contract and SiS Ergo home office products. They can also add additional complementary products or services, such as white glove in-home installation, if desired. Dealers have the ability to set their own pricing and brand the website with their own company name, logo and other information. All products featured at the HomeWork site can be shipped directly to any residential location within the United States.
“The pandemic has forced all of us, including our dealers, to reevaluate how we do business,” said IOP Vice President of Marketing Libby Ferin. “With millions of workers across the country asked to stay home, we wanted to help our dealers since most are not equipped to ship product direct to home locations. This B2C website solution means they can now better compete against other e-commerce sites while delivering contract office-grade product to the home. Our dealers are our lifeblood. We’re pleased to provide this turnkey solution to help them capitalize on WFM business opportunities.”
Gary Spangler, senior account manager at Interior Investments, LLC., a market-leading dealership serving the Midwest, is using the portal for his clients. He commented: “We are always looking to capture additional business by being a valued partner to our clients. HomeWork enables us to do just that. It brings exceptional product, delivery and billing at a price point the worker from home can afford – all through a simple and easy to use website.”
HomeWork’s product assortment meets the needs of any home office setting. The offering allows users to choose how and what products best meet their personal workplace needs. It contains mobile, adaptable and fixed workspace solutions. This includes SiS Ergo’s M Series Nesting Table, a multifunctional mobile workstation; the Winston Workstation, a retrofit solution that turns existing tables or desks into a sit-stand ergonomic workspace; and HAT Contract’s Mid-HAT height adjustable table. Accessories include mobile storage units, monitor arms, desk lighting and power modules.
The onboarding process for dealers is quick and easy. After determining which home office products they’d like to offer on their customized site, dealers receive a test site within two-to-five business days. Their fully functional, customer-facing web portal can be activated shortly afterwards.
HomeWork comes on the heels of HAT Contract and SiS Ergo’s Safe Spaces initiative launched this spring. Safe Spaces is comprised of two distinct collections: The Office Collection and the Home Collection. Product solutions for the Office and Home collections were selected for their quick-delivery and easy set-up. They also address the needs for health and safety. The Home Collection features an array of solutions that give end- users choice and control for how and where they want to work at home.
Dealers seeking more information about HomeWork can contact their local HAT Contract Sales Representative or SiS Ergo Sales Representative. More information about both brands are available at www.HATContract.com and SiSErgo.com
