The client is a designer, manufacturer, and seller of modular carpets and resilient flooring, committed to be the world’s first environmentally sustainable and restorative company. The company has design and manufacturing operations in several countries across the globe, and offers dynamic sales and service catalogs for different markets, channels and countries.

Challenges

The company’s objectives were to

  • Reduce the high and increasing costs of sales
