Having come in to the monument business with no prior training, I have found the GOLD Online Designer to be extremely user friendly and I was able to start designing monuments immediately. My customers have found the monument planning process to be a much more simple and pleasant experience than they had thought it would be. They enjoy being able to participate in the creation of their memorial. Many times I am able to show them things they had not considered, such as vases, polished margins, porcelain portraits and different colors of granite, with a simple click of the mouse, resulting in an upgrade I may not have introduced otherwise. I have no doubt that I have been able to close sales more quickly because my customers love the GOLD program we use. They love being able to take a color print of their monument home with them.

Cumberland Monuments is a small memorial company where artwork and memorial design is still completed by hand. The Tecstone Gold Online Designer has been a great tool in working with our customers. It is affordable, easy to use, and is a great way to offer customers a preview of their memorial prior to purchase. Families appreciate being able to view customized designs with their personal information. It saves them a trip back in later to see a hand drawn layout, and eliminates one step in our design process allowing for a much faster turn around time. The Gold Online Designer has become quite an asset to our company.

Earlier this week we downloaded your Design Tool trial program for our monument company. As we started to get familiar with it, we had a family walk in that wanted to order a monument. Within minutes we designed the monument the family wanted on your program and they decided to buy. We were able to price and get an approval from them immediately. The designer was able to give the family and us an exact idea of how the stone will look. GOLD will be extremely helpful in the future with our monument company and we are glad to have come across such a useful program.

GOLD Online Designer is without a doubt a great convenience for our families. Whereas it used to take a week to get a rendered proof back for them, (requiring them to come back to our store) they can now see and make changes, and approve it instantly. It’s speeding up our closing time significantly – usually the same day!

Literally, since we started using the online designer, our customers have been most impressed with our ability to interactively take part in a masterpiece being designed right in front of them for their loved one . They can say what they would like to see or change, no longer waiting days (for a proof) only to find that it’s not really what they like or had visualized. After this the only thing they say is which type of payments do you accept! Thanks so much for this awesome program.

I cannot say enough about the GOLD Online Designer and the companion designer book. Just yesterday a family came in uncertain of what they wanted. I had them look through the design book and they found a design that fit “their parents” perfectly. However, they wanted their parents monument to “stand out ” and to not be a common Gray Granite memorial. So, with a click of one button they fell in love with the beautiful movement of American Black Granite. In a matter of seconds I was able to show the family two completely different monuments and make the sale!

Tecstone’s Gold Online Designer Program is very simple to use. The proofs you make are detailed. Not only can you print, but you can email the design as well. The families I have shown the program to have had nothing but good to say about it. I feel fortunate to be using Tecstone’s Gold Online Designer Program.

I have no doubt that our sales are continuing to increase because of the ease and convenience that Gold delivers. As a monument company in it’s infancy, my husband and I have found many positives with our subscription to Gold. Gold gives our families the chance to really have input into the initial design right off the bat....using Gold, we have eliminated multiple revisions.

The experience with submitting to Tecstone and having it delivered the way we wished, has gone very smoothly. The whole team over there has been very helpful in getting what we and the families want right. Using Tecstone’s GOLD Online Designer we know everything we show a family is going to be available for sandblasting and that saves us time. And because you guys are competitively priced as well, it greatly increases your chances of getting more of our business in the future.
