BENTONVILLE, Ark. – July 21, 2011– Today, Sam’s Club announced the launch of SNAP!office furniture through Samsclub.com. This is the first time a retailer has offered access to customized, commercial-grade office furniture to the public through an online source. SNAP!office offers freestanding desks, cubicles, credenzas, cabinets and bookcases utilizing the latest technology to provide customized solutions to Sam’s Club members simply and quickly, including installation. Pre-configured solutions are also available.
“At Sam’s Club we are committed to offering our Members complete office furniture solutions, that will save them time & money,” said Jesse Floyd, Sam’s Club. “With this solution, we see Sam’s Club becoming a presence in the commercial office furniture market servicing small to mid-sized businesses through our Business Members.”
Not only can Members pick their furniture online, they can also work with a representative to design it utilizing 3D graphic technology. As the design is refined, cost and installation information are updated in real time, providing an optimized solution that fits the member’s budget. Most projects can be designed in less than a half hour. The completed design is then available for checkout on SamsClub.com, with all the order information transmitted directly into the manufacturer’s business system.
SNAP!office products are manufactured to the member’s specifications via a high speed assembly operation and delivered to a member of SNAP!office’s nationwide, uniformed installation service, who will deliver, install and remove all packaging materials.
After ordering, Members will receive their new furniture in three weeks from the time of checkout. Total cost will be 20 – 40 percent less expensive than through traditional dealers because of the strategic, direct relationship with the manufacturer, the level of technology involved and the build-to-order capability.
The SNAP!office furniture line is designer inspired, offering coordinated finishes, fabrics, laminates and trim colors. To learn more about SNAP!office, visit samsclub.com/snapoffice
