CounterSketch Update: New Curated Collections
I am excited to introduce the newest feature to CounterSketch®: curated collections. This new feature gives the user autonomy to create the collections that they know will sell in their area.
Currently, there are over 2,495 library models in CounterSketch. Never in the history of the software have we had so many different styles to select from, and each month we add more. While variety is the spice of life, with so many choices, it can sometimes be challenging to find the design you want.
With this in mind, we’ve given users a way to highlight styles that are relevant to their customers. Curated collections allow users to merchandise a selection of library models so that they can easily find the styling that is most relevant to their market.
Here is a brief description of how curated collections works:
Select Your Styles
Begin a search in CounterSketch using categories or filters to find the models you want. Use the session picks checkbox to select the styles you want to include. Once you have selected all of the relevant library models, choose the “add marked designs to portfolio” option and name your portfolio.
Create a Design Tile
Once you have selected the styles for your collection and added them to a portfolio, create a tile for your collection. From the preferences, menu choose “edit design tiles.” Now you can add a new tile to your Start screen that will feature your selection. You can select the shape, size, and title of your tile. Then select an image from stock images or add your own.
Access your collection
Browse your curated collection by clicking on the design tile you created to access your specified models. The collection shows in the search screen, with the title in the breadcrumb and tile image in the header.
Now that you know how you can create as many collections as you wish!
In addition to creating tiles that will link to collections of jewelry, you can also create a tile that will connect to:
- Web Address: your website to share images of past custom creations
- Stuller Showcase: other Stuller product that meets the customer’s needs
- Open Another Program: a point of sale software or just a calculator, so you always have one available
- Stuller Prototype Collection: a specific group of products
CounterSketch gives you options and simplifies your custom design process. Give your customers choices for the next custom design, either from the entire library or just those curated styles that you know will speak to them. Once you have completed the design, submit your order, and our CAD/CAM services team will handle the rest.
