“The app is a perfect extension of our customer promise,” said Brian Woods, CEO for Jerome’s Furniture. “Engaging our customers before, during and after the buying process ensures we exceed their expectations.

The new Jerome’s 3D room planner provides robust design tools with a fun and easy user experience, giving customers the power to create both simple and complex product assemblies with no skills or experience required. Anyone can now design whole rooms from inspirational photos, buy the pieces they like and share the results with family and friends through the app.

“It’s great to be working with a well-loved regional furniture retailer that values innovation and customer experience,” said Beck Besecker, Marxent’s CEO and Co-founder. “Jerome’s approachable and caring mindset made them the perfect partner for us.”
