Gather overview

What is Gather?

Gather is a project management software that enables interior designers to remotely access digital resources and collaborate with team members on a centralized platform. Users can store company materials, files, or vendor details in a built-in database and export specification sheets or reports in PDF format.

Businesses can use Gather to create furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) specifications, sort products into various catalogs, and filter selected items based on name, area, type, status, supplier, or manufacturer. It offers a Chrome extension Clipper Tool, which helps designers capture ideas or images from vendors’ websites and organize them in visual boards. Administrators can also handle budget calculations by tracking discounts, mark-ups, taxes, and shipping charges of products.

Interior designers can receive automated alerts about upcoming project deadlines, enabling them to streamline follow-up processes with vendors or stakeholders. Gather allows users to upload files to the platform and enables customers to ‘like’, ‘dislike’, or ‘approve’ items. The software also helps users facilitate collaboration across teams via commenting, messaging, and real-time chats.

The perfect presentation and purchasing program for designers

When I set up shop as a interior designer a friend recommended Gather software to me and I found them on facebook. Its an excellent program I found. I was able to pull furniture, accessories and lighting for clients. I was able to build my finds into professional presentation binders or PDFs via email and give them pricing on the items. You are able to add specs like size, color and how many. Now if you buy from market or shows you can add markup to the pieces and the clients have the option to buy directly from you or retail from the vendor. The clients are able to give their input, say yes or no. Then I as the designer can make selects and options prior to finalizing build and pricing. No interior designer should be without this program. I love it!!!

Pros
It was easy to log, to build sheets and easy for your clients view and approve. The cost is reasonable and you have someone to talk you through. I love how you can use the gather extension to pull in different pieces from any vendor from the web. Very handy to build presentations and tear sheets.

Cons
I really don’t have a con. The pricing is good, the software is solid, the customer service could a be a little bit better. Thats all it a great tool for designers!!

The challenge of providing great customer service as an interior designer is that it can be death by details. Having a single place that stores each detail about a specification, gives me a thumbnail image of each item, allows me to see how we're using our clients' budgets and each logistical detail that may come up from specification to installation has been tremendous. When we began using Gather to create invoices seamlessly in Quickbooks, I was in heaven.

Pros
I've been lucky enough to use Gather since it was in it's beta phase and love the many ways it's evolved. What is most helpful about the software is the ability to see all elements of an interior design project at once, whether you're managing the logistics of an order, determining how pieces look when assembled together, need to quickly reference a detail regarding the specification, or the client needs a budget update. All of this is easily accessible and straightforward.

Cons
I can't say there haven't been things I didn't like about the software but the Gather team is so responsive to feedback that they've never lasted long.

Gather allows me to work on projects anywhere, and is now our primary collaboration tool within our business and our primary presentation tool for clients.

Pros
It allows us to communicate with our busy Silicon Valley clients about individual items 24 hours a day. They love the control and feedback options they get, and we love minimizing meeting time and arriving at decisions more quickly. This way we can handle more clients at a given time, which makes us more profitable.

Cons
Because they're improving all the time, there are occasionally little clunks with certain functions, but customer service is phenomenal.

It is nice that you, as a user, can shape futures by providing an opinion with always received with respect by creators.

Pros
As a visual person(as most of the clients) I appreciate the most the look of Gather. Time-saving options, like a picture and product details clipping, are wonderful. Proposal ready in seconds, invoices, vision board... I like that I can get easily in touch with the program creators and get answers and help. As a small bussines owner, I respect and appreciate the work that representative are doing and wish them all the best.

Cons
The program still needs some work, like a mobile app. Hope, the creators will gain enough budget soon to jump to the next level.
