Do you know what a glorious time we live in? We can have our groceries delivered, get someone to drive us somewhere from our phone and Kim Kardashian is getting grandmothers out of jail. Amazing times, right?
Now, if we look way back to the olden days, by that I mean the early 2000s, running your design business meant you'd have reams of paper stored underneath your printer, product catalogs coming out of your ass and file folders piled on your desk hidden by 17 swatches.
All of that was crazy but we haven't even touched upon the fact that you still wanted to get digital with your business so you'd draw your floor plan in one program, render it in another program only after you'd photoshopped the products that you were going to put in your rendering.
And thennnnnn, you'd put together some fucking spreadsheet with a list of products, create an image of that spreadsheet to insert into your design package with all of your images you created just to turn into a PDF you could send to your client.
We don't live in those times anymore because you've got options for getting digital and organized without using 84 different programs.
Today I'm talking about the difference between Mydoma and Designfiles. So let's get into it, shall we?
Designfiles is an online interior design platform. Mydoma is a client and project management software. They aren't exactly the same and depending on how you go through your own design process, one platform may suit you better than another.
Let's start with Designfiles. Here's an inside look at what's you see when you're logged into your account.
With Mydoma, here's an inside look at what's you see when you're logged into your account.
DesignFiles let me know that they have a lot of full service interior designers using their platform for their local and larger projects. They also continue to add new features all the time to their platform.
Mydoma has more features than DesignFiles at this time and you’ll need to determine which is the right one for you.
Below you'll find a comparison chart of Mydoma VS. DesignFiles...
I hope that this has helped you to figure out which software you can use for your interior design business depending on what deliverables and what you need to manage.
You should give both of them a try and see which one helps you to streamline and make your design process go smoothly.
