You learn something new every day, or so the saying goes right? Well, did you know MillerKnoll invented the cubicle? We’ll take credit for when you drop that one at the next social gathering. It’s not just the cubicle though, MillerKnoll has been innovating and creating “problem-solving designs that are as beautiful as they are useful” for 108 years. We love that value proposition, have you ever created a beautifully crafted workflow? Some of them are frame worthy as they are insights drivers. Headquartered in Zeeland, Michigan, MillerKnoll has manufacturing facilities in the US, China, Italy and the UK, and serve customers in over 100 countries. Designers of the Aeron office chair and Eames lounge chair, MillerKnoll is no stranger to innovation, which is why the team turned to Alteryx when they needed a platform to help them solve the issue of gathering, cleansing, merging & analyzing data across multiple, disparate sources and systems in a streamlined and scalable fashion.
After being introduced to Alteryx via a colleague, Allison Lucas, Manager of Global Operations, Business Intelligence, got to work launching a pilot program across MillerKnoll. After creating one workflow which saved her 8 hours a month, Allison took the Alteryx show on the road demonstrating the possible use cases across supply chain, sales & marketing & finance. Recruiting 70 MillerKnoll teammates across the enterprise and setting up a 3- month pilot, the team built an internal COE.
