With the shift from conventional business models, we are seeing a significant change in how companies are being operated. Organizations that solely relied on a brick and mortar outfit are now betting on an online business model more than ever. Pivot Furniture, StickerYou, and Endy are three of those Canadian companies that have harnessed the power of the web and disrupted traditional industries.
Pivot Furniture has disrupted the furniture industry, StickerYou has disrupted the printing industry while Endy has managed to disrupt the mattress industry. In this article, let’s see what these companies are doing so differently, that makes them stand out from the crowd.
Pivot Furniture ‘Pivot Subscription service’ is truly a game-changer in the furniture industry. While IKEA may have simplified the way we shop for furniture online, Pivot Furniture promises to take things a step further.
Instead of buying furniture, Pivot Furniture lets you subscribe to a set of furnishings at a relatively low price. The company also does fast delivery and does the furniture assembly for you. You can subscribe to a piece of furniture for a duration as little as a month.
If you are someone who comes up with new decorative ideas every so often, this subscription model may work for you. This service is excellent for people who are moving around the country for a short period. For instance, a student who is moving to a particular city for a year or so will benefit from renting fashionable decor.
And in case you fall in love with the set you initially subscribed to, Pivot lets you buy it. The best part is that you won’t have to pay the full retail price when you decide to keep the furniture. Pivot Furniture will deduct the subscription cost you already paid from the retail price.
It would be nice if the company would lower its Delivery and Assembly charge to make their subscription service a complete home run.
Toronto-based sticker company, StickerYou, is a major disrupter in the printing industry. The company which started life out as an eCommerce website over a decade ago, now also owns the largest sticker shop in the world.
This Canadian sticker company lets you create custom stickers, decals, roll labels, temporary tattoos, and more, in any size and form. You can make use of StickerYou’s proprietary online custom sticker tool to create truly unique custom design stickers in a matter of minutes; it’s that easy.
Unlike many sticker companies which require you to buy custom stickers in large quantities, StickerYou lets you design and purchase a single piece custom sticker if that is what all you need. Sweet, isn’t it?
StickerYou produces all the stickers locally using an advanced manufacturing process. This is an impressive feat when you consider that several sticker companies outsource a lot of their work.
StickerYou is a global leader in the custom-print business and ships their entire line of stickers and other die-cut products world-wide.
And if you feel the need to see all the quality of the stickers and the different designs in person, you can always visit the company’s Sticker Shop in Toronto.
The company does the research and design first, and then they select the best material for their mattresses to begin the manufacturing and distribution process. What’s so impressive is that they do all of this in-house.
Endy doesn’t own a brick and mortar retail outlet, which helps them in their efficiency. Overall, Endy has reduced overhead costs that allows them to deliver world-class products at a fraction of the price when compared to premium brands.
In addition to that, you get a 100 nights risk-free trial. If you don’t find the mattress comfortable, Endy will pick up the mattress from your home and give you a full refund. If you decide to keep it, it’s worth noting that the mattress comes with a 10-year warranty.
Endy doesn’t only sell Mattress, but also bed accessories like Pillows, Sheets, Duvets and of course, Mattress Protectors.
With over 100,000+ mattresses sold across Canada (with amazing customer reviews), it’s safe to say that Endy is doing an excellent work selling mattresses online.
We can’t wait to see what these companies will do next in 2020.
