Before we dive into the world of interior design project management software, it’s important to review your company’s current procedure. Answer the following questions…
- What is your current system?
- How much time are you spending reviewing and organizing your projects?
- What’s working?
- What isn’t working?
- Do you keep messy notebooks?
- Are you and your team on the same page?
- Are all of your projects meeting expectations?
- Is there an easier way?
- Do you go home with headaches?
Sometimes, it can be hard to find any rhyme or reason to the way interior design firms handle their project management, and without the proper system, one wrong turn can demolish months of your hard work. It’s tough when a lot of your businesses success relies on you being out of the office and “in the trenches”. What I can tell you is, the most successful firms ARE absolutely using project management software and hyper-organized systems (sometimes totally customized) to stay on time and on track. It’s how they set up the framework to take on more clients and keep the money train rolling in!
It’s important to note that this is not a comparison, but a guide. Each have their own unique features, but we can help you choose one that best fits your budget, firm and personality.
