Partnership Overview

What started as a 30-day CMS migration has blossomed into a fulfilling partnership of platform management, digital marketing, strategic guidance, and so much more.

Background

KI, a contract furniture company, manufactures innovative furniture and movable wall system solutions for educational, university, workplace, and government markets.

They differentiate themselves in the global marketplace by personalizing products and service solutions to each customer’s specific needs through their unique design and “Market of One” manufacturing philosophy.

A Client-First Approach

KI believes that knowing their customers will help serve them better.

They listen. They observe. They understand that each customer has unique needs. At Diagram, we couldn’t agree more. From the beginning of our partnership over 10 years ago, we have made it our mission to understand KI’s customers, competitive marketplace, manufacturing process, data systems, and culture.

Over the course of our partnership, we have taken the time to get to know the individuals and processes that drive KI’s business, including marketing, sales, IT, manufacturing, human resources, technology partners, designers, and customers. With a shared vision, we continually offer strategic solutions that improve and expand KI’s global digital footprint.

Growing Together

KI initially approached Diagram because they were struggling to launch their site on a new Content Management System (CMS) platform.

Their site had significant performance issues and they needed to go live in less than 30 days. Diagram accepted the challenge, reworked the entire code base to streamline data flows, improved speed, and met the critical go-live date.

Our philosophy has been the same since that initial project: We do whatever it takes to help KI achieve its business goals. Over the years, this relationship has grown and expanded to include platform migrations, microsite systems, SEO/SEM, digital marketing, and more. As an extension of the KI technical and marketing teams, we provide both strategic guidance and daily support on all digital initiatives.
