Interior designers and project planners need all the tools they can use to make projects simple and clients happy. ProjeX from FCI London aims to make life easier
Managing some design projects can be intensely difficult. Some platforms aren’t intuitive, others tie you in to certain brands, others are difficult to share with clients. A new one aims to ease all these pain points for interior designers…
Every interior design project is different. Different requirements, different client expectations and, of course, different solutions. While there’s a wealth of design software that will help you visualise layouts and draw up blueprints, there’s a paucity of platforms for populating those layouts with furniture.
The shortcomings are numerous – brand-specific platforms that don’t let you stray off-piste, lack of shareability and functionality. ProjeX from FCI London aims to tackle these problems and help interior designers to work in a smarter way that makes project management not just easier, but more profitable.
A user-friendly platform
At the heart of ProjeX is usability. It aims to help designers manage the scope of each project with ease and to keep all their ideas in one place. By doing so, it will provide a one-stop shop for your work, rather than relying on numerous Google searches, countless bookmarks and more.
It’s intuitive to use. Once you’ve agreed your project and initial designs or layout with your customer, you can create a new project and start adding furniture to your grid. There are pre-loaded templates to use, or you can create your own. Divide your project into different rooms or offices and you can then browse tens of thousands of projects in the FCI database. But that’s not all…
ProjeX is also brand agnostic, allowing you the freedom to go beyond FCI to choose and save furniture ideas that you love. You can plug these images into different mood boards and save into different categories for easy reference.
The feature-rich platform has different degrees of shareability. You can let your client just see what you’ve chosen, edit or have full access – they can also have their mood boards to help you see what they’re envisaging. The tools help you to identify scope creep early on in a project, manage your shopping lists and boost productivity as it’s an all-in-one solution.
There are also budgeting tools so you can see what items cost, what you’re paying for them, what you’re charging your client and what the profit margin is. It adds up to a cloud-based, multi-device tool that opens up a new world of interior design planning. Find out more and get free access for a year with the exclusive reader offer at FCI’s website.
