Testimonials

Compared to other potential vendors I was working with, Catalyst Workplace Activation was extremely attentive and offered far more insight and options that the others. My decision was made for two reasons: which company paid more attention and was more eager to win my business, and which company offered the best product (both in look and function). Thank you for everything!

Schnitzer West - Madison Centre

Working with Catalyst was great. We had an awesome team that was very thorough and knowledgeable about the products, kept us within budget, and delivered the furniture on time.

April Brixey, Schnitzer West

The team that I have been working with for the last 4+ years is amazing! When I have to do a build-out, and we have done many, my last worry is the furniture portion of things. They love the work they do and it shows! Our designer always communicates well and tries to get everything we need into all our spaces comfortably and it always looks amazing! Our account coordinator is a superstar! He is consistent, communicates well and always keeps me updated. I feel fortunate to work with such a wonderful and highly qualified company as Catalyst. Everyone is always so pleasant and ready to help from the designers to the install crew and everyone in between.

Hope Morris, Regional Senior Office Administrator Parametrix

Catalyst volunteers employees and a truck to move our gear for our fund-raising event and it is done with the same care and consideration a company would give to its highest-paying customer. Thank you! Your employees are a pleasure to work with. It made me think that Catalyst must be a good place to work.

The visit to the showroom was fun and I enjoyed the designer who had many ideas for our offices. The team leader was very attentive to our needs and checked in on a regular basis to make sure everything was going smoothly. I really can't think of anything that would have improved the experience. Five stars for this team!!!

Julie Marler, Marler Clark

The ordering process was easy, and the project manager was very thorough in double checking our order quantities, layouts and forming an installation plan. They did a great job adjusting our scheduling to accommodate delays in the construction schedule. Our lead installer worked with me on two of my projects this summer, he is an incredible asset to your team, and I cannot say enough about how thorough and helpful he was on all of the work he did this summer. He arrives on time and stays as late as needed to get the job done. He is also extremely organized and knowledgeable about the products he is installing. He completed the work ahead of schedule, made sure everything was right, adjusted well to changing timelines and safety regulations, and was always professional, even going above and beyond to assist teachers and with adjustments once they arrived on site. I appreciate their attention to detail and timeliness.

Taylor Krebs, Meany Middle School

At every turn, Catalyst has continued to prove responsive, and customer-minded focused on designing and delivering a great experience and set of products. I’d like to specifically call out the full Catalyst team for superbly navigating a confusing and layered order process. As we worked to bring all the orders together, the Catalyst team did an excellent job of communicating and tying the various orders together. We sincerely appreciated the extra effort to make the project run smoothly!

Our project manager was amazingly responsive to changes and requests! Our Move Manager was excellent to make sure Swisslog had what was needed when it was needed. She was very hands-on and involved through all phases of the move. Together they did a good job of getting things set up for a seamless job! The install seemed flawless. I did not have a lot of interaction with the crew, but when I did, our Install Lead was professional and took care of lateral file revisions on site. The whole team did an excellent job.
