by Tim Steingraber

DesignAlign is a consultation platform that generates budget estimation and streamlines the design process–saving valuable time for both you and your consumers. Now, clients can work alongside you to build their dream kitchen or bath and see their project budget every step of the way, in real-time.

When you use DesignAlign, all of your ongoing projects are consolidated into one, easy-to-use platform. It’s easier than ever to manage client information, discuss product options and design concepts, and build out a realistic budget that’s aligned to a client’s needs so they can make an early commitment before any formal design work begins. All while maintaining the transparency and interactivity that helps clients build trust in you and make informed decisions confidently and quickly.

Features built for your business.

DesignAlign’s leading-edge technology was designed with the help and input of kitchen and bath professionals, and is backed by tested and proven results. Whether you’re a designer, business owner, or manager, DesignAlign is built with features to help you quickly close more sales.

Get quicker client commitments with budget estimations: The heart of the platform is a budget estimation process that empowers sales designers with instant and accurate pricing. This collaborative pricing transparency, plus products and services, informs clients and builds their confidence in hiring you.

Your customized dashboard: DesignAlign’s customizable dashboard makes it easier than ever to pick up right where you left off—giving you a quick overview of your most recent contacts, project budgets, and opportunities.

The all-you-need customer opportunity database: Build a foundation for turning sales inquiries into clients with an unlimited amount of storage for documentation, photos, business letters, sketches, and more. With better organization and prioritization from the ground up, you’ll stay in the know and on track with what matters most, save valuable time, and convert more leads into sales.

Don’t forget the installation costs: It’s tough for clients to make a buying decision when they can only see a portion of the project costs. Whether you offer installation or not, having the numbers available —and better incorporated—cements your client’s confidence in the total project cost estimation as well as increases the opportunity for a “yes” decision.

Document templates customized for your business: DesignAlign uses a time-saving, template-based document system that is customized with your business branding for more consistent, professional, and operational documentation.

A platform built for you.

As a business owner or manager, DesignAlign spearheads your business by offering best practice insights, Good, Better, Best budgeting comparisons, and process tracking that’s informed by comprehensive analytics. It builds upon the necessary foundation that allows you to scale operations into multiple, highly profitable satellite showrooms. And you can focus to continuously develop a more sales-driven, client-winning team.

As a kitchen and bath designer, DesignAlign not only gives you valuable time back and enables a better work-life balance, but it also increases revenue simply by streamlining a more transparent consultation process. Your clients will feel more confident every step of the way, even before formal design begins. And you’ll start seeing a difference where it counts—in your bank account.

But no matter what part of the kitchen and bath industry you come from, DesignAlign saves you time. Its features can help quickly differentiate clients who are committed and ready to sign an agreement from those who are not, so you won’t have to waste your precious time on those projects that never come to fruition.

Don’t just take our word for it.

Joe Thomas of Custom Wood Products (St Mary’s, KS) said: “Our turnaround time on providing customer pricing was sometimes as long as 3 to 4 weeks. Today, we’re developing a budget on the spot. This results in higher project sales totals and eliminates the need to design without first being retained. We’re now tracking all leads and we have transparency in lead sources and closing ratios. This process and software works. Profits are up and our customer experience has improved.”

We have the analytics to prove it. DesignAlign can increase opportunity processing volume by 100%, closing ratios by 100%, and gross profit margin by 40%, and can reduce time to client commitment by 75%. Through pricing transparency and interactive client experiences, the platform can help you run a more productive showroom or design business.

From interactive budgeting to client communication management, and everything in between, DesignAlign makes your job easier and gives you time back in your day to focus on building your business and doing what you love most.
