Clerestory, the first kitchen and bath design software to generate proposals in hours instead of days, announced the public launch of its technology that will allow designers to seamlessly adjust prices, track revisions and perfect the proposal from submission through final approval. The software categorizes more than 200,000 of the latest kitchen and bath products ensuring designers have access to the right pieces for the right client at the right price. Clerestory’s unlimited storage allows designers to store all of their clients, proposals and projects in one place so they can maintain an accurate history and focus on profitability.
“It was a fall night in 2019 around midnight. I was knee-deep in a proposal for a client with multiple spaces. Thirty hours [were] spent pricing materials and setting up proposals — copying, pasting, and trying not to forget a part of the shower system that would bite us down the line. I thought to myself, ‘there has to be a better way,'” said Scott Trainor, founder of Clerestory. “From there Clerestory was born. We are delighted to offer something that takes the tedious work out of creating proposals, allowing designers to save time, reduce mistakes and increase profitability.”
The benefits of Clerestory are fourfold, allowing designers to:
- Save Time: Clerestory takes the time-intensive work out of generating proposals with tremendous polish and customization.
- Improve profitability. Clerestory allows designers to visualize profit during proposal creation, giving them the ability to estimate returns in real-time. Users can also create and save multipliers, giving them insight into which vendors offer the most profit on each product.
- Simply Workflows: Choose from hundreds of thousands of products to adjust prices and track revisions.
- Reduce Mistakes: This sophisticated software not only ensures designers order all of the necessary parts, but it also reduces the number of errors – keeping the budget on track.
Clerestory works with more than 30 of the biggest brands in the kitchen and bath industry Kohler, Brizo, Delta, Gerber, House of Rohl, Top Knobs, Marazzi, Crossville, Waypoint Cabinetry, Shiloh Cabinetry, Cambria, Silestone and more.
“Clerestory is easy, accurate and reliable,” added 25-year industry veteran Julie Priddy, president of NKBA, Baltimore/Washington chapter. “Not only does it allow me to deliver the most polished proposals in the business, but the software is adaptable so I can make product and pricing adjustments thus tracking profit margin changes in real-time. Time savings and accuracy in our business are significant – both are accomplished with Clerestory. Get ready to be wowed.”
