Inspiring story behind Longbell
Our story of how we started Longbell, nurtured it & made it as a great solutions provider in interior design industry.
Where it all started?
Krishnakanth. While doing my MBA in campus placement I joined in interiors company called customfurnish.com. After working 3 years there I found most of the online companies are charging more to the customers in interior designing category. Quality of materials also not so good. Delivery timelines are very bad. Not a single company is fulfilling their commitments. Customers don’t know when they get interiors done.
What was lacking in the market?
Companies will take all the 100% of payment before they dispatch the material. Customers are in fear whether they will get materials their home or not. I observed interior designing is very growing market, people wants good service with good quality with affordable price.
My next action plan
I explained all the details to my friends Sumanth, Jitendra about interiors field, about growing market. About what is the problems customers are facing? Before we decided to start a company we have executed few projects to get full project experience. We have executed about 5 projects which had come very well. In that time we had built more contacts with Vendors, Manufactures, Installation teams, all the teams related to interiors. We have visited number of interior showrooms. We got enough knowledge to start an organization.
Then we decided to start a organization which is customer service oriented, We decided to give good quality material, Modern designs, Good finish and most important committed timelines. We are delivering within 25 days after the designing all the competitors are taking minimum of 45 days. Our payment terms are very flexible. We are taking last 50% payments after delivery the material to the flat so that customers are very happy, they don’t have any fear about our service.
My friend Sumanth used to work for Banking Sector. Jitendra used to work TATA. All are MBA classmates.
How big are we now?
Currently we are having team of 5 designers, 4 sales team, and 15 members installation team. Overall 25 member team.
Finally we made it! We saw smiles from our customers
The whole purpose of starting interior design started materializing and started getting happy reviews from our customers as below
It had been a great working experience with Longbell. Highly professional and efficient team. Quality of the work is exquisite. The best part about them is they understand our expectations, patiently listen to our ideas and make it work out as planned. They efficiently managed the timelines and finished the task within the given deadline of 2 weeks. Highly recommended.Yusuf Serki
