"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.

"Great Platform!"

Comments: Great, I've also had great customer service when I've had questions,

Pros: This has been a huge time saver and organizer for my interior design business. I love the mood boards and the way I can pull everything straight from a website and add it to my design while keeping track of the budget. Then when I present to the client, the interface is easy and professional.

Cons: I am waiting for the floor plan feature! I can't wait so I can do that with my mood boards all in the same place.

"Excellent for decoration projects"

Comments: Effeciency and one spot to keep everything. I love how esdy it is to use and also how quickly you guys come back to me when I have a question.

Pros: I love the way the 2D materials board looks so professional when I pull it down into the client presentation. This is the main reason for me using the software, presentation to clients and theese of use with the shopping list for my clients. I'm also just about to launch e-design and the systems questionnaire is brilliant for this.

Cons: I currently use SmartDraw and woudl like to be able to draw floor plans here. I've seen the new software coming but the plans look more basic than what I can achieve in smartdraw so I hope in time this can be improved. I also like the idea of 3D rendes but with the actual pieces for the design, this may come later also. I think the shopping list would be better over less pages, they take up too much room and so it doens't look great. Maybe a table format with at least 6-8 items per page.
