Dear Studio Designer Subscribers,

Studio Designer was founded nearly 30 years ago on a singular principle: Provide a project management and accounting platform that handles interior designers’ essential business needs to allow them to focus on the creative aspects of their work.

With that we are pleased to announce three exciting changes:

First, we are excited to announce that effective as of May 1st, our free email and chat support is being managed by a dedicated in-house team. The hours will remain the same (9:00 a.m. ET to 5:00 p.m. PT) with a service level agreement (SLA) of three business hours. You’ll notice the new email and chat support is more intuitive and easy to use. We have been working on this transition for a couple of months and believe it is in our users’ best interest to offer these services from our dedicated in-house team.

Second, Studio Designer is proud to let the design community know that our development team is also being transitioned in-house. We have hired experienced developers who are all based in the United States. For subscribers, this means that we will be more nimble than ever in enhancing the Studio Designer platform. Which leads us to…

The third change: Studio Designer 2.0 is coming soon. How soon? Our first pilot users will be using this new platform in early June. We are hosting a conference for our outside consultants in mid-June, and plan to start transitioning accounts in July. You will be hearing more about this soon. Studio Designer 2.0 is a completely upgraded platform—based on the version you use and love today—with lightning-fast load times, streamlined with intuitive screens, tool tips throughout, and enhanced security.

With my decades of experience in the design community, I take great pride in Studio Designer and am happy to connect with you to discuss these exciting changes.

Sincerely,

Keith Granet
Studio Designer CEO
