High Point, North Carolina, is known as the furniture capital of the United States. It is also about 20 minutes from the Xtern office in Greensboro, North Carolina. Every fall, buyers and furniture industry professionals descend on hundreds of showrooms located in and around downtown High Point. This showcase of furniture, home accessories and decor, attracts visitors from all over the globe.
We are proud to create products used by some of the furniture industry’s biggest names. Our custom software solutions ensure that furniture manufacturers' operations run smoothly and efficiently. Though diversified across a variety of industries, our team does quite a bit of work for furniture companies and the run-up to October’s market is always a busy time.
Xtern created iPad apps for a high-end outdoor furniture company, two wall decor companies, and an upscale home furnishing company. Xtern also revamped the B2B websites for these companies and others, ensuring B2B functionality for manufacturers who sell to retailers/dealers who then sell to the public. Our expertise in the B2B space is crucial to the success of these manufacturers for whom B2C practices do not apply.
For the Xtern team, it’s really special to be able to create products that support a home-grown industry. Furniture production has been a vital part of the North Carolina economy for generations. And we are proud to help that industry not only survive, but thrive in the 21st century through the use of technology.
