Why Firms Are Switching From

Excel

To Monograph

Here are some more of the reasons design firms have shared for why they’ve chosen Monograph to power their business.

Monograph vs.

Excel

what's right for me?

Great question! We obviously think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer:

Excel spreadsheets are great at documentation, but Monograph turns all your data into visual reports so you can understand where you're from project management to firm profitability.

Built specifically for design professionals, Monograph is a practice operations platform that replaces many tools for your business, including your project planner, timesheets, real-time budgets, forecasting, staffing and much more.

The best platform choice comes down to what’s most important for you.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one platform that makes it simple to run your firm, has world-class customer service, and is easy to use whether you’re just starting out or growing fast, then we built Monograph just for you.

If you don’t mind manually inputting data on spreadsheets, or spending time looking for that one spreadsheet, we encourage you to give both platforms a try and decide for yourself!

Another thing to consider is where you expect your business to be a few months from today. We value simplicity and transparency. Both Monograph's simple plan and Excel’s plan give you a data tracking solution for $45/mo per person and $6.99/mo, respectively. However, if you want to see a full picture of your business, you might be paying for additional tools as your firm grows.

Meanwhile, Monograph's one and only plan, which includes all of our platform features, costs only $45/mo per person with free training and onboarding.

Our advice: You'll still need spreadsheets for other parts of your practice like programming or documentation. But if you need visibility into your firm profitability, budget management, and team alignment, then Monograph is for you.

After all, your success is our success and we're ultimately here to help you build a better practice.
