I’m sold. I’ll be registering when it goes live and we can start pushing stuff into a pipeline for designs and projects in South Africa, and in effect, in the UK now! From my perspective, as someone who isn’t a certified electrical engineer, this just makes sense. Now, I not only have solid, robust and accurate documentation to supply all parties involved in the project, but it's easy as pie. It works from the tech side out and from the client side in, and I can customise it. Fantastic stuff.

The Lighting Designer is a game changing software. We currently spend hours on designing and developing reports that are specific to our systems. TLD generates integrated reports and engineering documents with complete details of lighting, electrical loads and controls - and all in just a matter of minutes.

Sawan Nichani, CEO, MacBee

Wow, it was a real privilege to be one of the first to see this new software for documenting lighting design and installation. It is well thought out and provides a ton of detail in the reports. I really can't wait to get my hands on it - it will save me days of work.
