The Story

Founded in 1900, ABC Meubles creates high-quality made-to-order furniture. The brand manufactures locally in France and sustainability is at the heart of what they do. Their products are made with the health of both the planet and their consumers in mind. They use solvent-free water-based varnishes (which limits volatile organic compound emissions), durable sustainable wood, and new generation green panels.

ABC Meubles’ boast a diverse range of products to furnish the entire home. The brand’s design team continually create new displays of ideas and product variations for their eCommerce site. Potential customers can choose from around twenty colors and finishes for each product.

Challenge

Due to the fact that they have so many different options available ABC Meubles needed more ways in which customers could see different furniture variations in real living spaces. Integrating User Generated Content into their site was the ideal way to fulfill this need. 

“We were already sharing our customer’s photos but only on our blog. We also wanted to use them on our eCommerce site and in particular on our product pages. We had a lot of positive feedback and questions from our customers about these photos. We therefore decided to fully integrate them into the experience of our eCommerce site. Customers need to see how our products actually look in real life.”

Solution

User Generated Content posted by ABC Meubles customers is vital because it provides other potential customers with inspiration as to how they could customize the furniture they wish to purchase. 

As customer content is a key way in which the manufacturer communicates and helps to convert its potential audience, ABC Meubles needed a state of the art User Generated Content platform with which to collect, organize and analyze this crucial piece of their marketing puzzle. That’s where Photoslurp came in.
