Can We Write a Customer Story About You?

Typically each month we feature a story about one of our customers and how they are using our software. We are taking a break from publishing stories this summer while we prepare more.

If you would be willing to be featured in a story, please let us know. Our only requirements are that you use and like our software! Big or small, cutting-edge buildings or standard commercial design, we enjoy sharing all of our customers' stories.

The story process involves a 20 to 30 minute phone interview and then a chance to review the story before it is published. Reply to this email if you are interested.

If you look forward to our monthly customer story, use this month to review the archive of customer stories on our website.

New Wishlist Requests

Below is a list of recent ideas on our wishlist. 

Customers regularly share ideas about what they would like us to add to the software. What we don't know is how many other people are interested in the idea. If you see something that looks interesting to you, vote for it. We prioritize features based upon the number of votes and the difficulty to implement. Knowing whether other people are interested in an idea or not helps us know if we should spend development time on it or on something else.
