Home refurbishments, be it for any type of residential development, are at an all-time high.
On one hand, this is due to the impacts that the ongoing pandemic Covid-19 has brought to the world, which forced all of us to spend more time at home, and which consequently, made us elevate our homes adjusting to our new needs. On the other hand, there is always dynamic movement when looking at the rental and property market in every country worldwide, and with every new tenant or landlord, there is requirement and desire to give the new home that personal look & feel.
With increased demand for home refurbishments, so is the demand for kitchen and furniture solutions, be it imported or locally produced solutions. This is particular true for the heart of every home, the kitchen. Whilst existing kitchen showrooms are flooded with potential customers and new kitchen showrooms are opening up everywhere, more and more business owners and managements are required to find solutions to manage expectations.
What is the solution? The solution is kitchen-finder as your B2B service partner.
Many companies of different sizes look outside their organization for their staffing and service needs. This is particular true for businesses in the Middle East given the existing salary and employment structures. Therefore, why should kitchen businesses be any different? Outsourcing the kitchen design process to a team of experts can help boost kitchen sales and boost profitability, whist giving sales teams the additional time to focus on what they should be doing, selling!
Here are some of the key benefits of outsourcing your kitchen design process:
Achieving double-digit sales growth on annual basis requires skilled and sufficient manpower, good process management as well as having the general infrastructure to do the business. Imagine you can reduce your operating costs including all required provisions and liabilities for design staff, whilst giving the sales team a helping hand increasing their output of quotes leading to more sales? At kitchen-finder, we work hand-in-hand to support kitchen businesses and sales teams in Africa, Middle East and Asia to increase their sales & profitability with our design service.
Separating functions and outsourcing part of the sales process will support overloaded sales consultants, who are very often asked to consult, design, sell and process potential orders as part of the job description.
Outsourcing your kitchen design process gives the sales team flexibility and the extra time to focus on existing as well as new prospective leads instead of ‘wasting’ time at the desk. In addition, it is always more affordable than building your own in-house team, especially looking at the Middle East with employer obligations in terms of insurance, allowances and end of service benefits.
Designing kitchens is a complex undertaking and is sometimes even considered and art. In-depth product knowledge, “on-site” experience as well as an external perspective can be of great advantage when realizing the consumer’s dream kitchen.
Outsourcing your kitchen design process allows you to exchange knowledge whilst giving customers a new perspective and sales teams new inspirations. At kitchen-finder, we deliver technically feasible and beautiful designs that are presented in form of a high-quality design output package.
We understand that every year, sales are expected to go up. At kitchen-finder, we work with sales teams to create a collaborative relationship that benefits all involved. Rather than “replacing” a sales team, our approach is to allow sales teams to use their time more efficiently.
Making a sale starts with a great introduction, a great consultation and a great design. The problem is that many kitchen showrooms don’t have the resources to handle all of their leads and respective design requests in a timely manner. What happens when a customer has a unique or complicated design or no one can render the design quickly on the spot?
At kitchen-finder, we process high volumes of professional kitchen designs quickly, usually within 24 hours, at max. in 48 hours, and on request, on the spot. We ensure that your sales teams, just like your customers, receive initial and revised renders on time to keep them engaged and motivated.
While there are many advantages to outsourcing your kitchen design process, any outsourcing project can also come with its challenges and it can take a bit of time until all runs flawlessly.
When outsourcing any type of service, it often includes a fair share of communication. In order to prevent being lost in translation and / or any important points being missed, we developed a unique communication process, whilst using tools such as email, instant messaging (WhatsApp), and video calling (Zoom) to clarify on any possible other questions.
There is a certain level of trust that comes when outsourcing your kitchen design process. At kitchen-finder, we have over 50 years of combined industry experience in designing kitchens.
We have designed kitchens for the most luxurious residential villa developments all the way to most economical township developments. We believe that each client is unique, and we also believe that our in-house design team will be able to translate each of your sales team’s requirements into kitchens where design meets function.
