Q: Why isn’t there a trial version?

A: As the design tool is so easy to use and generates salable documents which adds real value to your business and with such a small subscription fee it didn’t seem that important. Watch the video and use it, any problems email us and we will look into it for you.

 

Q: What if my loudspeakers or other preferred products aren’t in the database?

A: Even if your loudspeakers aren’t yet in the database you can still manually add some small details, which will allow the design tool to crunch the numbers.
The advantage of the database is it will bring the manufacturers tech specs through into the PDF at the finish.
You can manually input figures for lumens and loudspeaker sensitivity making it possible to provide a very comprehensive design.

 

Q: What does the subscription give me?

A: The monthly subscription gives you up to 30 designs per month and a one-off yearly payment gives you 365 designs per year. Each month that you remain subscribed and pay the £60 GBP monthly subscription payment you will receive 30 uses for that month. No uses are brought forward to the next month.
Contact us for your company’s logo and details to be entered into the documentation providing really professional personalised documentation for Subscribers.

 

Q: What if I don’t do 30 designs per month, why do I need that many?

A: When we do designs we tend to produce more than one set of specifications. We juggle screen sizes, loudspeaker models and projection systems until we hone the design with the least amount of intelligent compromises.

That is what makes this tool special; it allows a really interactive design process in minutes.

 

Q: Why is the pricing set this way?

A: The pricing was set, as a direct result of understanding exactly what this tool generates. What can usually take days and days can be done in just a few minutes. It can help make any company deliver the very best documentation as part of the tender or pre-tender process as well as adding real value to the design process. We feel that once you use it, you’ll love it. It really does catapult users into a whole new level of documentation and professionalism. It isn’t software that you need to set up - it works online, in real-time; it works great and works from the start. In minutes you will have a full set of design documents that would otherwise take days.

 

Q: What does the future hold for “TCD”?

A: We will be adding more and more manufacturers as well as acoustic treatments and seating configurations. If we have a road map we are trying to be realistic on when those features will be delivered. As it is a web based design tool, all of the updates are part of the subscription process, there are no “new versions” you will always be on the newest version.

 

Q: How will the tool add value to my business?

A: You will be able to create designs and as a result of those designs accurate tenders and BOM’s. Those designs can be added to your quotes with a margin, like every other product or service you deliver.
You could also sit with the client and show how the system will be delivered in a matter of minutes.

 

Q: What if there are any issues, who will help me?

A: We are absolutely committed to making this design tool a real industry changer. If you contact us we will try to return your emails within 24 hours, not forgetting that this is a global design tool and there are time differences.
