"Design Files is my online assistant!"

Comments: The team is amazing! They are constantly striving to be innovative with Design Files and take feedback seriously. There have been so many updates and new features since the initial launch of the site and with every change, the program gets easier to use. It is extremely professional and worth every penny!

Pros: I love Design Files! It is so helpful to have everything that I need to send professional concept packages to my clients. The web clipper makes it easy to grab images, information and pricing for any product online and the editing features allow me to control what I want my clients to see. The new room rendering application is great to show clients what their space will look, with the actual pieces. This is extremely helpful from a visual standpoint and so much easier than photoshop.

Cons: The only con that I have is I would like to be able to create invoices for my clients. Hopefully this is coming soon...

"Best Company EVER"

Comments: Honestly, I've never had customer service like this since becoming a designer, and even rarely throughout my 25-year hotel career has anyone been this customer-focused. A lightning-fast learning curve, excellent snipping tool, beautiful mood boards, product list with pricing, color option, quantity, project-specific client notes, mood boards, space planning room setups, client onboarding, packaging & pricing ability, automation capabilities, and you can even take payments. This the Rolls Royce of what you need, but for the cost of a Ford. It provides you with everything you need to successfully communicate with your client, keep track of the project budget, create shopping lists, and effectively show your vision. These capabilities help to prove your value and worth, keep yourself uber-organized, and will make you look like a top-notch professional with a high level of expertise and beautiful client presentation. Stay on budget, stay on time, stay looking professional. PLUS, just about every retail product out there, is already in the system. All the stores you'd shop at anyway. And you can create mood board templates, so you're not reinventing the wheel every time. Seriously, do yourself a favor, and sign into this program. Your design life is about to become MUCH better. It's also super affordable for the Pro version, especially considering how robust this program is. You will LOVE it!!!!

Pros: Easy to use
Fast integration
Robust capabilities

Cons: There is no integration into 3D software

"User Review"

Comments: I love making pretty design boards to present to my clients and having easy correspondence with them. Doing mostly e-design services, I present the items and my customers purchase on their own. Because of this I have not used the invoice feature and would love for Design Files to pair up with a well known affiliate link company so designers can make a bit of $ in affiliate sales.

Pros: I love that it is easy to use and that the customer support is very responsive.

Cons: There are many times that I am using the Design Files shopping vendors and I drag an item onto my board and it does not show up. Another frustration is when the shopping gallery has "out of stock" items in it. I would love to see more vendors be available and the ability to narrow my search options by more than price, ie. finish, dimensions, customer rating etc. I would love to not have to keep all boards active in the program in order for the "shop it" link to work. Would be nice to download boards for myself and still be able to use those links when the board has been deleted.

"Overall a Game Changing Product!"

Pros: I find that the product is quite user friendly and easy to use. I LOVE the beautiful and professional way all client presentation documents are laid out. Am so grateful that the product list presentations are automatically generated as you create your moodboard/render. Appreciate so much the Photoshop like features that are built into the mood board software. LOVE that I can manually cut out photos and distort images.

Cons: These are some updates that would really be nice. Inclusion of these features would really help my business run more smoothly and efficiently, and these would help save me TONS of time. When adding products to a client project it would be nice if the page did not always jump back to the first page of products every time you add a product to the project. Would also be nice to have a way to bulk add products to a project. Wish you could search products by a category - like side tables, sofas, rugs, etc. A way to favorite products in the pre-loaded products section. Or a way to be able to add them to your own library.  Would really be great if the client did not have to set-up a login to Design Files to be able to access the presentations. My clients never remember the password they set-up and constantly have difficulty then logging in. Would also be great if there was a way to share the client presentations through a link so that this link could be included in an email, etc. Would LOVE a way to search for a color in the text editing portion of the moodboards by a hex code so that I could get my exact branded colors in my text. Would LOVE if there was a way to have more text editing functions in the design rationale section. Like bolding, underlining, italics, bullet points, numbered lists/outlines, etc. Would LOVE to see a Design Files app. I constantly need to pull up Design Files on my phone when I am out shopping, having a quick meeting with clients, etc.
