No. You’re not locked into any long-term commitments. All plans renew monthly. You can close your account at any time. Save on our annual plans.
Do you offer a free trial?
The WorksThing system is used in hundreds of studios by thousands of people every day. If you do installs, it’s the most powerful platform you’ll find. To make sure that’s right for you, get your first 10 surveys free. Cancel any time within your first 30 days with no obligation.
What is the main difference between the plans?
Our ‘Chat’ plan adds live chat to your website so your team can field client enquiries and send proposals. Upgrade to ‘Teams’ to create private chat rooms, build Brambl websites and send email campaigns. To create surveys, installs and manage bookings, you’ll need the ‘Pro’ plan.

What access levels can users have?
There are four access levels available:
- Studio manager can create other users and change admin settings.
- Studio user can manage and place orders.
- Production operator can make and despatch work.
- Installer/Surveyor can accept bookings and create surveys/installs.
You can also add as many installers or surveyor users as you need.
You can manage each user’s permissions on their account.
What's the difference between a 'user' and 'installer'?
You’ll need a user account for each member of your team who processes orders, creates proposals or sets up installs. Create third party ‘installer/surveyor’ users (or for your own team) for people who only need to view surveys, share files and chat about installs.
Can WorksThing handle bespoke products?
Yes. WorksThing has different levels, depending on the level of control you need. Setup In-House Products if you’d like clients to be able to order online. Use Flexible Products to set free text descriptions, turnaround and pricing. Or create a Plan, with multiple parts and a defined path through your factory.
Features & Functionality
What’s reviewed in the FileCheck process?
When you’ve uploaded files, we check the page size matches what we’re expecting. If it doesn’t you can stretch or crop it to fit. Then we’ll run a series of checks, looking for problems with fonts, colours or unexpected layers. Get on with something else, then a few minutes later, your file will pass, be fixed or fail. And you can read why.
What is WorksThing used for?
Streamlining surveys and installs. Connecting your team with end clients, third party installers and surveyors. It’s a whole suite of tools designed for busy teams.
Who uses WorksThing?
The WorksThing platform is used by thousands of graphic professionals around the world. It’s used by entrepreneurs in England, studios in Scotland. Independent installers in Ireland. And workshops in Wales. The platform is always on. Our users chase the sun from Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Australia, New Zealand and America.
Is WorksThing suitable for small teams?
The more people in your team, the more WorksThing can help. If you’re a solopreneur you’ll find it useful. For every additional person you add, communication channels grow exponentially. The bigger the team, the harder it is to manage. And the more you need WorksThing.
Are Proposals included in every plan?
How easy is WorksThing to use?
We’ve designed WorksThing to be intuitive to use. Like all powerful software, it’s best to watch our online tutorials to master each module. If you’d like one-to-one or team training, ask us about on-site and remote sessions.
Do you provide any training?
Yes, visit the training room to find a library of short, easy to follow online tutorials.
Can I see the trade prices for your products before I sign up?
Take a look at the range on www.marqetspace.com – you can register for a free account to see prices. You’ll never pay more than these prices and many others have special pricing or promotions, only accessible to subscribers.
Who supplies these other products?
Your WorksThing account gives you access to trade pricing for lots or print, sign, display and promo items. These are made by specialist manufacturers, based in the UK and Ireland. Each product has a set turnaround.
Can I see stock levels?
Some products, like furniture, displays or hardware are held in UK warehouses. You can see whether they’re in stock with a live count and how many are arriving soon. Stock levels change throughout the day, so the only way to guarantee that it’s yours is to send your order to production.
Licencing & Legal
Can I share my logins with other people?
