PeopleSpace Reinvents the Outdated Office Furniture Manufacturer/Dealer Model, Places Customer Experience at Center of New Operations

Apr 30, 2019

IRVINE, Calif. | April 30, 2019 - PeopleSpace, the West Coast leader of workspace strategy, office furnishing solutions and custom architectural products has reinvented the decades-old furniture manufacturer/dealer model. By placing the customer experience at the center of its new operations, PeopleSpace offers clients a technology-based process and dedicated project teams. PeopleSpace streamlines and integrates both short and long-term planning, design and purchasing solutions for their spaces.

For decades, businesses facing office design and product needs were subjected to a complex network of furniture manufacturers and dealers requiring negotiations with several separate sales teams.

“By shifting our model to center on a comprehensive customer experience with a single corporate point of contact, we can better support businesses in creating workspaces that seamlessly adapt to their changing employee needs and support the culture, performance, retention and recruitment of their most important asset,” PeopleSpace CEO Jesse Bagley said.

A Best-In-Class Experience from Start to Finish

PeopleSpace has created a proprietary six-step design and procurement process that integrates both short and long-term planning, design and purchasing while addressing the most current industry issues. The PeopleSpace process integrates best practices, technology, tools and innovations to enhance the business space-planning experience from start to finish, and [comprises]:

Building on nearly 20 years of experience in workspace planning, PeopleSpace is changing the paradigm with the new customer-centered model that transforms the way businesses plan, design and execute workspaces. The company has been named a Haworth Best in Class partner for the past several years and has the unique distinction of having Haworth as an investor. This means PeopleSpace has full access to Haworth’s industry-leading research on human well-being, and the impact that workspaces have on employee cognitive and psychological performance.

PeopleSpace has launched a new website, and its four showrooms boast the latest advancements in workspace visioning technology, including AR/VR integrations, live design capabilities and a database utilizing AI that allows customers to create custom floor plans, design intent and budgets.

“This is just the beginning,” Bagley said. “PeopleSpace represents a fundamental shift in how businesses will plan, design and bring spaces to life for the next generation of employees.”
