We started using Ivy a few years ago, it has helped our processes become so much more efficient in communicating with our clients and our vendors. We tested about three other similar platforms before landing on Ivy. We chose Ivy because of their ongoing innovation, improvement and an intuitive user experience. Thanks Ivy for an amazing product we love using every day!

When we have new members of staff join, the first thing we do is set them up on the Ivy tutorials. Within a day of watching the videos they are able to jump straight onto the system and feel very comfortable. For me there is no better system that can create the perfect proposals for our clients. Also, our proposals are consistently the same across all our design team which for us is really important for our brand. Trindade and Bird would highly recommend Ivy to any other interior design companies who are looking to have an organised business.
The feature I loved the most after the product clipper is the fact that I could send all the proposals through the software directly to the client and they could accept or decline each individual product simply by swiping on the ‘Accept/Decline’ button. Ivy has made the whole process very smooth and the proposals looked very professional and extremely easy for the client to make their decisions.
Having Ivy launch in the UK has been exactly not just what our studio needs but what the industry needs! A piece of software that can produce a professional feel from start to finish and make running every project a breeze. It allows my designers and office staff to work collaboratively to keep our projects on budget and on time. We couldn’t imagine running a project without it now.
Ivy changed my life! This system helps me run my business so much more efficiently and effectively. Everything I do for my clients and with my suppliers can be tracked, recorded, attached, invoiced…. you name it! The support I receive from Ivy is second to none when any issues arise, and I really do not know how I would run my business without it.
I’ve used Ivy now for over two years and still love it. It makes my life so much easier, especially when I’m sourcing, and it also keeps track of the (sometimes complicated) finances with each project. It also just looks so much more professional when presenting a client with a proposal or invoice. I couldn’t recommend Ivy highly enough, and have already shared it with many designer colleagues!
Ivy has helped significantly streamline my systems and processes and allowed me to seamlessly share project details with my team without having to constantly be the point of contact with my team, answering questions they can now find the answers to on Ivy.
Before Ivy we used spreadsheets and sent never-ending emails between clients and suppliers. We over-ordered pieces or ordered the wrong thing (oops). Mistakes, we made them all. It’s so much harder to make a mistake with Ivy as it streamlines so many processes. We save time and increase profitability.
Ivy is more than a suite of productivity tools, they enable and bring together the design community at large. Meeting, listening and learning from other leading designers reiterated and cast light on items true and new to Design Shop. The Ivy team has been there since our on-boarding and continues to look forward for ways to help us improve our business be it software or community, they’re all in.
It was so fun attending the first Ivy Academy. I’m pretty computer savvy but it was so helpful to see in person from the Ivy team how Ivy intended to be used… it ensured that I was on the right track. I also got some really good tips and tricks that I have since been using and have made things so much easier and quicker.
