What You Will Learn

As kitchen & bath designers and interior designers well know, the paperwork involved with creating proposals for clients can be time consuming. During this session, join Scott Trainor, as he discusses the different methods designers use to create their proposals, how they impact your client’s overall experience and decision making, and how streamlining the process leads to a faster turnaround.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how creating detailed and comprehensive proposals is multifaceted and highly dependent on the specific needs and goals of the user. In general, the kitchen and bath industry has struggled with in-house solutions to perform certain tasks and is not able to automate specific processes.
  • One of the primary objectives of using an industry-based proposal software like Clerestory in a professional setting is to increase productivity and efficiency by streamlining workflows and reducing the time and effort required to complete complex tasks. For instance, a proposal tool such as Clerestory can help kitchen and bath showrooms manage their operations more effectively by simplifying routine tasks and improving communication and collaboration among team members and clients.
  • Understand why, in addition to improving efficiency, a well-designed proposal can help designers achieve greater accuracy and precision in their work while saving time and increasing profits.
  • Learn why accuracy in proposals is essential for both time-saving and money-making purposes. When proposals are accurately crafted, they provide a clear understanding of the scope of the project, the requirements, and the deliverables, which helps to avoid misunderstandings and costly mistakes. 
Featured Presenter
Scott Trainor

Scott Trainor has been a kitchen & bath designer for 10 years and has spent a majority of that time handling pricing and estimates for his client’s projects. Kitchens and bathrooms have a lot of moving parts, and it was too easy to forget so many pieces, like a hand shower elbow or toilet supply line. After attempting every method of proposal creation under the sun, he created Clerestory as a tool for other kitchen & bath designers to make the process foolproof.
