Consulting and Enterprise Content Management
Global Office Furniture Systems
Teknion is a designer and manufacturer of office furniture systems and workplace interiors. Its products include panel systems, desking systems, case goods, seating solutions, architectural products, tables and collaborative spaces and storage products among others.
Teknion’s sustained growth as a global office systems powerhouse was being jeopardized by outdated technology and business processes that negatively impacted operational costs, hindering its ability to expand its global operations and to capitalize on emerging market opportunities.
The company lacked the technical means and processes to enable its sales and marketing channels to access key content and to ensure the relevancy and accuracy of that content. It also lacked the ability to properly support and service internal resources and clients, and the platform through which it could control the timely creation and distribution of information to dealers and sales teams globally.

Transformative Futuring Vision
Enginess’ enterprise futuring consultants worked closely with Teknion’s teams to gain an intimate understanding of the company’s operational processes and a thorough grasp of its technological challenges.
Our research led to the creation of a compelling future vision for a globally-connected enterprise, and to the emergence of three strategic areas of focus necessary to empower the Teknion global business model: First, a unified digital asset and content management process and platform to create, store, manage, and distribute Teknion’s large asset repository of more than 32,000 digital assets and 200,000 architectural schematics; second, a customizable, global delivery strategy for geographically specific content; and third an internally-managed, globally-connected platform to make accurate and consistent content instantly available to partners, sales channels and customers, in real time, wherever they are on the planet.
