Time saving program!
Kommentare: I have had more leads turn into proposals, which have then turned into bookings. This was my number one concern. I would get a lead that would then fizzle out because I had no way for clients to fill out an online questionnaire. With the form section I was able to create a simple questionnaire that leads could fill out on their computer or phone easily. I can then automatically create a proposal for them based off of one of my templates.
This has been the best decision I have ever made for my business! Not only does this program save me time and energy, but it looks professional and is easy to use. My clients love it as well! The entire process from start to finish with my clients is now seamless. The proposals look clean and modern and clients can e-sign the proposal once they approve it. letting me know that they would like to book. No more guessing if it was received or not, or if it was even viewed. This program has been a lifesaver! I have booked more weddings than ever before and I still get to have a life!
I wish I had more time to explore the program more in depth. I'm discovering new things every day that are great tools. Luckily the Curate team has been fantastic about answering questions or concerns and the onboarding sessions were super helpful to get started.

Big fan of Curate!
Kommentare: Excellent. I love that the team is always soliciting feedback, and works to implement it to make a better curate. You guys are awesome.
We're long time users of Curate (and have tried out several of the competitors), and have always been big fans of the platform. Curate is easy and intuitive to use, both for the florist and for the client. We appreciate the ease with which we can create a proposal and the flexibility to make customizations. Curate has a polished look that sets us apart from our competitors. In fact, we consistently hear from clients that our proposals just looked better than our competitors.
A couple of ideas:1) delete the pre loaded mayesh product. The stock images aren't great, and the pricing is incorrect for our market. 2) would love a more corporate looking template. Cleaner font, more minimalist design. 3) I would L-O-V-E an e-commerce arm of curate. Currently we use floranext for e-commerce. For florists who do events and retail, it's clunky to have 2 different platforms. 4) Would love a curate ap...especially for our breakdown crews to check in inventory.
The Biggest Time-Saver You Could Hope For
Kommentare: I have loved using Curate and would recommend it to business of all sizes. Another great thing about the software is the wonderful support team that comes with it. They are always up for a quick chat and questions are answered so quickly. That seems so rare these days.
Curate not only streamlined the many processes we used to book clients, but it did so with a beautiful, sophistical, and professional presentation. Before Curate, writing and customizing proposals, chasing down clients to sign pdf contracts, and collecting and processing payment were three completely separate systems - and they ate up so much time. Having one clickable button for each entire event was so organized and streamlined. Using this software really elevated the look and feel of my business. I can't pick a single favorite thing about it... but maybe it's the time saving bit.
I always wished I could add an additional fill-in section to the contract so I could collect clients's credit card info to keep on file. The software does let you create a form to do this but it is sent separately, so clients would easily "forget" to fill that out. If it was part of the contract and had to be completed to be submitted, we could keep that info as a backup plan for those more "easy-going" clients.
Way too much money for what is provided
Things started off great! After trying Caterease, which felt archaic in comparison. Though the pricing was about the same as Caterease, the functionality and UI were better so I transitioned over to Curate. They were a small company, and very receptive to my feedback and needs, and quick to implement some of the suggestions I had. I got to know the [sensitive content hidden]
, and was even asked to be a customer testimonial to their venture capitalists when they were expanding. Then changes started. The once easily-navigable UI started getting clunkier. Things stopped working as well as they did before. Their updates were more like bugs. All the while, I'm still paying $3400 a year for degrading software. Then, as I mentioned above, I stopped receiving inquiries. Noticed after a few days that business wasn't coming in. What's wrong, I asked? Apparently, there's an annual quota of inquiries they allow into your account. Once you've hit that quota, you have to pay them more! They literally turned off my business and essentially shut my business down without notice or hesitation, and PUNISHED me for being successful. Absolutely unacceptable, and I found another software (Honeybook!) that same day, and transitioned within a week. Saved myself $3000 a year, and have had zero regrets or complaints.
Curate had an attractive and professional UI that made our previous software obsolete.
The fact that they charge you per inquiry/file you create. I was paying $3400 a year for their service, and you get a limited amount of inquiries with your subscription, I believe it was 200 new inquiries. Even if you have to decline the inquiry, it counts towards your quota. So, as a caterer with a busy summer, I could get 10 inquiries for 1 day and only be able to accept 2 of them, but now I've used 1/20th of my annual count for a single day's worth of inquiries. Want to add more? It's going to cost you $200 more for 100 more slots. I moved to honeybook, and pay 1/10 of the annual price for unlimited inquiries. Shame on you, Curate.
Curate Has It All!
Curate is all encompassing and has everything you need from start to finish. I use it to create proposals and forms, accept payments and contracts, create recipes, keep track of flower orders, etc. It's great to have everything in one place and have everything organized.
Curate is amazing, but it is a little pricier than I would like to invest. It has a lot of features, but maybe too many for what I was needing.
