The Ivy Mobile App is a Game Changer for Designers
Ivy has launched its first-ever mobile app and it’s going to be a game changer for your design business.
Available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, the new app empowers designers to manage multiple projects in one place and on-the-go. Features include task management, real-time expense and time tracking, talk-to-text note taking and more. Using augmented reality (AR), the app also captures and stores, with its built-in room measurement tool, accurate project dimensions for designers to reference when selecting products for a room.
During client meetings, the app arms designers with up-to-date information on the status of all products selected – from proposal to payment to installation – and provides access to a complete product library from which they can view, add or assign new products to a project. Track current spend from the app, making meetings more productive and enabling decisions that stay within budget. Designers can also add products as they are sourcing in-person at showrooms, or at trade shows, by taking a photo and easily entering all the relevant product information right in the app.

Yes, the app arms designers with up-to-date information on the status of all products — from proposal to payment to installation. The app also provides access to the designer’s complete product library from which they can view, add or assign new products to a project. Best of all, designers can add products as they are sourcing in-person at showrooms or trade shows – they can just snap a pic and easily enter all the relevant product information right in the app.

Can designers sign up for an Ivy account through the app?

Are there features on the app that are not available on the web platform?
Yes, the mobile platform offers new features that are unique to a mobile experience. For example, the built-in room measurement tool incorporates augmented reality (AR) technology from Android’s ARCore and Apple’s ARKit, to sense the floor and provide accurate dimensions of a room.
