Updated: 27 March 2024

A little over a year ago, we launched Programa 2.0 to revolutionize the way designers manage their projects and specify products. Today, we’re proud to see our vision becoming a reality, with almost 1,000 designers in 30 countries relying on Programa as their go-to solution.

With intuitive tools and powerful features, designers can now manage their projects and specify products with ease – and in 2022, designers specified almost $400,000,000 of products with Programa.

At Programa, we’re on a mission to simplify and streamline the global architecture and interior design industry. Our platform will streamline every aspect of a project, from managing projects to procuring products, unlocking efficiency gains that allow designers and brands to accomplish more with less effort.

2022

Last year, we released dozens of new features to help designers manage their workflow and get more done with less effort. We shipped hundreds of improvements across our platform, making Programa 2.0 faster, more powerful, and easier to use.

We introduced the first generation of our invoicing tool, offering an easy-to-use solution for creating and sending invoices directly from your Schedules. Our integration with Xero further streamlined the invoicing process. Our Schedules feature received a major upgrade, with improved speed, power, and ease of use. And, with the introduction of our Procurement tool, keeping track of payments, deliveries, quotes, and orders has never been easier.

International users also benefited from our upgrades, with the introduction of new currencies, imperial measurements, and other key improvements. All of these upgrades are a direct result of your feedback and support, and we’re grateful to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of designers around the world.

2023

This year, we’re setting our sights even higher, taking designer tools to the next level while also enhancing our core tools such as Schedules and Pinboards. In February and March, prepare to experience the future of design with the following releases:

Purchase Orders

By popular demand, soon you’ll be able to create and send purchase orders in seconds, directly from your Schedules. No more copying and pasting into other tools, with Programa you’ll be able to prepare and send a purchase order in less time than it would take to log into Xero. Plus, you’ll be able to send reminders and see when your purchase order was opened by suppliers.

Take control of supplier engagement like never before with the ability to send reminders and monitor when your purchase order was opened by a supplier.

We’re introducing a new level of customization to Pinboards. At your request, we’ve added the ability to resize and crop images to enhance your visual storytelling experience. Get ready to elevate your design presentations with Pinboards.

What’s next?
