SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "The app has really helped my business," says Bonnie Joy Flamm, interior designer from Orange County, California. "Before my company had our own app, the process of engaging new prospects and new clients always relied on face-to-face meetings. Now my clients and I can collect design ideas and collaborate using the app, which helps me work better with my clients." The app, offered by Planese Inc., can be customized for each interior designer who can place their logo, information about their services and portfolio of their work into their app and offer it to their clients to use on iPhones and Android mobile devices.
The app features are useful to both homeowners and interior designers, including:
- A photo search, save and share feature, so homeowners can do the research they need and collaborate with their interior designer to refine their vision—all from their mobile device.
- The interior designer's portfolio, logo and contact information are highlighted in the app to build their brand and customer loyalty.
- A collaboration feature, where the homeowner can ask questions or make comments about each photo and the interior designer can respond.
"Bonnie's app was a real time saver for me, and a great tool," says Sherry Godfrey, resident of Orange County, California, and recent client of Bonnie's. "Before meeting with Bonnie and getting her app, I used Pinterest to find and save ideas but it limited me a lot. With Bonnie's app, I easily share and discuss ideas I like and to search all of Bonnie's past work to really understand the way she designs. Plus I can use my camera to photograph what I like, add my notes and share it with Bonnie. The app was great to help me get my ideas all in one place and easily share them to get started on my living room decorating project."
The app is powered by Planese, a pioneer in collaborative home improvement, whose mission is to help homeowners approach, plan and carry out their home remodel.
