Case Study

When a Leading American countertop manufacturer called on us to take their Business online

Moving a 66-year-old manufacturing company to the digital realm is a daunting yet prestigious endeavor

Client pain points

Change is hard. Companies that are well established in the past stick to tried and tested methodologies. Adapting to the current digital era is a big change. Creating brand positioning in the online virtual world needed a game plan unlike any other.

  • The company was unsure about where to start about their business requirements as they were used to traditional methods of working.
  • Forming a digital brand identity and forming visibility was not in their business requirements.
  • Moving from an old system that used pen and paper for tabulation and business purposes was highly inefficient. Most of the competitors had moved away from this regressive model. A complete overhaul was necessary to move forward.

How Founding Minds adapted to a foreign technology

Countertop technology is primarily a western style of horizontal workspace. It can be present in kitchens or other food preparation areas, bathrooms or lavatories, or in certain workrooms.

Issues

  • The design team was Southern Asian and had gaps in their understanding of the countertop design style. They visited the offices for a hands-on comprehension before commencement of product design.
  • Rigorous back-and-forth communication was of paramount importance to understand business process and requirements.
  • Understanding their traditional model was time consuming and labor intensive.
