March 13, 2019 in Use Cases

Some might feel that Netflix is the perfect hobby. That’s not the case for Lars, who prefer to fix cars when he’s not in the office. Working on about 5 cars at the same time, the paperwork usually stack up. That’s why he is a frequent Correlater.

Back when Lars was still a man in his youth, he owned a beautiful ’67 Mustang. A couple of years ago, he stumbled upon a used and pretty worn out version of the exact same car. This sparked the interest in veteran cars, which made him jump on it and bought the old wreck.

Suddenly you’re facing an endless hunt online for the right furniture. This sends you into a messy situation with hundreds of tabs in your browser and no way of organizing everything.

This was a problem Lars and Maria faced when they decided to redecorate their home. They got bored of a mass-produced home and longed for a retro style that was hard to find these days.
