Why Mydoma NEXT & Why Now?

It’s no secret that the interior design business landscape has changed.

Client expectations and demands have grown and clients want information at their fingertips. Many designers struggle with keeping up and, as a result, remain in a very reactive place versus a proactive one. However, being reactive all the time is the fastest way to burn out.

Due to these growing demands, technology is no longer a nice-to-have… it’s a must-have. The old way of doing business with a pen and pencil or with clunky Excel spreadsheets, that you need to manually update, won’t cut it. Your clients want a platform they can access to get the information they want when they want it.

We’ve talked to hundreds and hundreds of designers over the years and we rebuilt our beloved Mydoma Studio platform to meet the demands of the market. We’ve improved core features to fundamentally change how you work today but also into the future.

And, that is what we’re launching today… Mydoma NEXT.

While this first set of features is only the beginning, we think you’re going to find Mydoma NEXT to be intuitive and beautifully aligned to your business. It’s a fresh and modern user experience but it’s also familiar. Existing users will recognize the core features but will appreciate how they come together in a much more harmonious way.

With all that said, we’d love to introduce you to Mydoma NEXT and highlight some of the new and improved features that we think you’ll adore.

Project Management

With Mydoma NEXT, you’ll get a full suite of time-saving tools so you can perfect your process and spend less time managing and more time designing.

Here is just a shortlist of the activities that you can manage inside of your projects:

  • Appointments
  • Files and media
  • Notes
  • Contract sign-offs
  • Proposals
  • Budgets
  • Questionnaires
  • And more…

 

The nice thing about Mydoma NEXT is that there are so many more customization options for your projects. Not only can you change the colour scheme (hello, fresh look and feel!) but you can also turn on or off project features to reduce visual clutter and only show what you need.

Speaking of customizations, you can also create custom statuses that best reflect your workflow and visually move clients through the design process.

We also heard you say that you needed to save even more time on the administrative side of your business so we created project templates. With Mydoma NEXT you can replicate projects with templates to create new projects that reflect your workflow in seconds.

Client Portal

Remember when we said that not being able to manage client demands was the fastest way to burn out? Well, with Mydoma NEXT’s client portal, you’ll be able to give your clients access to everything they need in one, easy-to-access place.

You can also invoice your clients with Mydoma NEXT and automate some of your accounting activities. You can set up an invoicing schedule to send clients a notification that a payment is due and invoices can be paid via ACH or credit card through the client portal. You can also record manual payments, too!

The best part about having everything in one place is that your clients will know exactly where to go (and how to find!) important communication around their project. Whether it’s sending estimates, contracts or messages, you and your client can have a single source of truth AND you can set healthy boundaries with clients in the process! (Goodbye rogue text messages at 1AM!)

"Mydoma Changed My Life!"

“[Mydoma] changed my life! Everything that I need is right there, all organized. And whatever my client needs, they can just log on and see it – it’s perfect. It’s really changed the way that I’m able to manage my projects.”

– Don Ricardo Massenburg Jr., DESiGN iNKREDiBLE LLC

Interior Design Packages

Mydoma NEXT also automates your discovery call process and streamlines the way you schedule and follow up with new clients. You can create and send proposals in seconds to reduce the friction of turning a lead into a client.

Honestly, you’re going to fall in love with the platform after you give the clipper a try.

Our product catalog has also been improved. You can sort, filter and search your custom product list to quickly find what you’re looking for and provide the info to clients in whatever way you wish!

Rendering

Realistic kitchen rendering in Mydoma

The Mydoma Visualizer is one of our most powerful features yet, but don’t let that scare you – because getting started with this feature isn’t going to require going back to school for drafting or rendering.

You’ll get the ability to show off your designs in 3D by simply dragging and dropping product, fixtures, and more into the room. Regardless of your experience with other drafting softwares or rendering in general, you’ll have the ability to create something beautiful that does your work justice – and blows your client away!

Not only can you create beautiful visualizations and renders with the Mydoma Visualizer, but by using VR and AR technology, you can have your clients walk through their new space as if they were there!

Mood Boards

Purchase Orders and Invoicing

Mydoma NEXT is going to help you eliminate manual accounting by generating proposals, invoices, and purchase orders right on the platform.

Our proposal feature will help you eliminate the guesswork when creating project proposals by enabling you to drag and drop your existing products and services to create a scope of work for potential clients. Then, get client approval with the click of a button!

You can also use your product catalogue to generate purchase orders for your projects. Send them directly to your vendor from Mydoma and track their status to keep your projects on schedule.

Creating invoices becomes a painless process with all of your products and services already loaded into Mydoma NEXT. Quickly and easily send clients a notification in Mydoma that they have an invoice due and save yourself the (awkward) conversations.
