"Never before have I purchased a software that had SO much after-sale support. I am so impressed with the amount of teaching your company provides to ensure customers are getting the most out of the product! I purchased mine several years ago, and due to a faulty computer with repeated crashes, I have yet to really explore the software, but I recently bought a new laptop and installed my software (thanks to the help of RNK's great Helpdesk team) and I'm looking forward to rewatching the tutorials while sitting in front of my machines. Thank you again for a fantastic product with SO many creative possibilities inside!! "
Make it a great day!

"Just a note, I have owned many software’s through the last twenty years. Floriani is the best and easiest to use. But one of the most important and best part, is the one line videos. I have purchased so many programs and have had no lessons or support with. I live in a rural area. Now I have finally gotten software that my dealers teaches and if I can't make the classes I can go on line. Thank you!"

I wanted a software that will do it all from opening designs, editing designs to creating designs. I also wanted a program that was easy to use, have great customer support and didn't charge every time there is an update. The added bonus is the 5 free designs a month! Each time I have submitted a ticket (hasn't been many:)) the response time has usually been within 24 hours or less. The virtual events that have been on-going since the pandemic have been great and thank you to those who host them for free and taking time out of your busy schedules to allow us to have access to gaining expert knowledge. The Floriani Forum has also been a great resource as you are able to ask questions and also go back and search for topics that you may have the same questions about. The on-line videos are awesome as you can always go back and replay if you need to understand something that you may have missed. Thank you to all the Educators who share their vast knowledge with us and hopefully someday soon we can all get back to in-person events which are really great to be there for hands-on learning! Before I close out this review, I want to thank everyone at RNK/Floriani for providing us with wonderful easy to use software and fantastic products! Glad to be part of the Floriani Family!

I also have several embroidery programs over the years and Will tell you Floriani beats them all! It is the only software you should have hands down. More training,videos and lifetime upgrades to say the least. Classes for training every month for free, more content then you will ever need. I'm sorry many years ago at a show I made the wrong decision no going with FTCU. Henry

I have tried other products however in my view this one is hands down the best product on the market. Within a week of loading the product, I was creating designs by following the tutorials.

I just got my software, but waiting on my new computer to load it on. Can't wait to use it. So impressed so far with the on line tutorials - giving it four stars for now, but will revisit when I actually begin to use it myself. My husband has as specific design for a cap in mind, so I'm anxious to see if I can pull it off.

I just love, love, love this software. I am new to the digitizing world and Floriani is by far the best program I have seen. It's easy to use and all my finished embroidery projects look very professional. All the support and education is Phenomenal. I highly recommend this program to all embroidery enthusiasts (of all levels) looking for an easy, powerful program to take their embroidery skills to the next level!
