BUILD INSTITUTIONAL KNOWLEDGE

Sharing and building on collective expertise across your firm is easier when all your data is standardized. You will no longer have to rely on just one or two designers to retain all the institutional knowledge.

CATEGORIZE PRODUCTS

Group products according to different criteria: approved brand guidelines, sustainability scores, budgets, and more. Create catalogs designers and clients can choose from with just a few clicks.

NURTURE VENDOR RELATIONSHIPS

Calculate product volume and leverage past and future purchases for better deal agreements. Visibility across all your projects also allows you to order in bulk, so you can get even bigger discounts.

MANAGE APPROVAL PROCESSES IN ONE PLACE

Have managers approve product entries as ready to use in projects. Allow clients to approve product selections. And have architects approve value engineered product swaps. All in one place, using the same data.

KEEP UP WITH PRODUCT EVOLUTION ACROSS YOUR FIRM

Finding out a product is discontinued can take days — after you’ve already sent out a purchase order and the vendor informs you it’s unavailable. Avoid wasting time and simply mark products as discontinued or outdated, if necessary. Keep track of new versions of a product.

ACCURATELY PREDICT COSTS, TIMELINES, AND MORE

Look back on past projects’s data to predict how much the materials for a new project will cost, or how long it will take.

Fohlio is a powerful, intuitive, and easy-to-use FF&E specification software for interior designers and architects. Our interior design software, construction management software, construction estimating software — design-build all-in-one — is best in class, drastically cuts down on construction errors, and saves thousands of dollars’ worth of man hours.

Instantly extract product information from any website using our lightweight web clipper: no dragging and dropping, just a few clicks and your information is saved to your FF&E schedule. Build your product library every time you specify an item, and make it easily available to your entire firm. Standardization becomes easier, and so is staying on-brand and building knowledge.

Besides organizing FFE schedules, you can also create a mood board (or two, or however many you want), ask vendors for quotes, and compare prices compare prices, all in one dashboard. Switch views to organize your products by floor, room, item type, or supplier.

You have your favorite suppliers, tried-and-tested materials — you also remember that one material that worked so well for a client and that they fell in love with. And you want to use it again. Reusing construction materials and interior design FF&E is easy. You can search your product library by name, specs, and even project. Just select the item to save it to your current project — and all the information you saved before (like spec sheets, installation manuals, source, and more) will also be pulled and included.

Collaboration is also easy as pie: Decide what and how much you want to share with team members, clients, and vendors. Get trade discounts with ease. Make the interior design and construction procurement process quick and painless.

Generate PDFs with a few clicks, whether it’s a tear sheet, construction submittals, mood board design and presentation, and even construction site packets. Want to make sure branding is on point? Fohlio is so customizable that you can use your brand’s own logos, color schemes, and fonts.

Speaking of customization: You can set up your templates however you want (we understand that a lot of users are used to a certain way of organizing files and data), edit, delete, and add columns, and use whatever language you like.

Fohlio integrations make your workflow faster and less tedious. Turn all your Pinterest inspirations into full specs with just a few clicks. Keep track of construction costs and income, invoice straight from your punch list, and get paid faster — all with our QuickBooks integration.

If you think our product is great, you’ll be happy to know that our customer service is even better. We’ve got 24-hour chat support with real, live people. Schedule a demo any time and one of our customer success agents will be happy to show you around, get your started and set up quickly, and show you all the nifty things you can do. We’ll even do data migration for you so you can easily jump into using our specification and mood board software.
