VIEWS ON INSYNC
We were first introduced to Safe Enterprises through one of our brand INMARK. All the central furniture and panel wall were supported and manufactured by Safe Enterprises. Personally, I was really impressed with the quality, the end product, the prices, and the attention to the smallest detailing in the packing of the shipment. The idea they provided was really smart and really did compete with European standards. Based on our past experience with them, we introduced a different brand and a complete set of panel walls and we’ve already placed an order, which has been shipped to 5 new stores. Someone would think this is really a gamble, but for us it’s a matter of trust in their quality. I have been to their manufacturing unit and seen the samples and all their different models and it’s really, really impressive.See On Youtube
We are based in US and speaking at instore Asia, It’s great to visit the Insync Booth. It’s great to see quality & innovation come together within one roof and I am really impressed with the continued innovation and progress of the company in making world class products.
Integration of technologies in store solutions is inevitable today For example, in the context of store fixtures, when they are integrated with the smart technologies, they can actually help in efficient inventory management. SAFE was an early adopter of technology and they have definitely been ahead of the curve.
