Gulistan Carpet is a premium manufacturer of fine medium to high-end carpets since 1924. The company has more than 380 employees and operates facilities in Aberdeen, North Carolina. Gulistan Carpet supplies its merchandise to big box stores, distributors and dealers in the United States and Canada.

Business need
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, Gulistan Carpet wanted to create a more modern, dynamic, flexible customer portal that would enable it to stay ahead of the competition.

Gulistan Carpet worked with IBM Business Partner® Royal Cyber Inc. to use the logic of the company’s existing applications to create a more intuitive and full-featured customer portal.

Usage of the portal, which enables customers to enter orders and get timely information via the web, increased by 50 percent just one month after it was launched.
