Accessories Enhancing Your ProSoft Experience

Accessories: Enhancing Your ProSoft Experience

When you have the hardware and software figured out, the next step is to add whatever accessories you need to really optimize your workflow.
The right accessories can turn a mediocre workspace into an efficient, creative safe haven. We understand the importance of accessories in creating an efficient workspace. Accessories like monitors, monitor arms, keyboard and mouse combos, and battery backups contribute significantly to a productive environment and workflow optimization.

At ProSoft, we understand that the right accessories are crucial in creating an efficient, comfortable, and productive workspace. Our range of accessories is carefully selected to complement and enhance your ProSoft experience, ensuring that every aspect of your work environment is optimized for success.


Our bestselling monitors are the 24″ HP P24H G4 Monitor and 27″ HP P27H G4 Monitor.

These monitors offer ample screen real estate, which is crucial for design professionals working with complex layouts and detailed visuals. The 24-inch and 27-inch screens provide a spacious canvas for your projects, reducing the need to switch between windows and improving workflow optimization.

These monitors have high-resolution displays so that every detail of your design is crisp and clear. Every perfect choice and little mistake is clearly displayed on the screen. This precision is vital in design work where the accuracy of colors and details can make or break a project.

Monitor Arms

If you want to move your monitor more easily, make your workplace more ergonomic, or set it at a nontraditional angle, location, or height, then a monitor arm is just what you need. At ProSoft, we have the Dual LCD Monitor Arm and Single LCD Monitor Arm for you to consider.

These monitor arms are designed to provide maximum flexibility and comfort. Ergonomics is part of the design. These monitor arms allow you to adjust the height, angle, and position of your monitors, reducing strain on your neck and eyes during long hours of work.

Monitor arms also help with workspace organization. These arms help create a more organized and clutter-free workspace by elevating monitors off the desk. An organized workspace enhances productivity and contributes to a more professional and aesthetically pleasing work environment.

Keyboard and Mouse Combos

For a joint purchase of a mouse and a keyboard, consider our Logitech MK550 Wireless Combo or MK320 Wireless Combo.

Both combos are designed with ergonomics in mind. The MK550, with its cushioned palm rest and wave-shaped keyboard frame, offers comfort for prolonged use. The MK320 provides a compact, efficient design for smaller workspaces.

Both models boast long battery life, have 10 reprogrammable keys, and have music controls for those who enjoy listening to music while they work.

These wireless combos reduce clutter and offer a range of functional keys and shortcuts that enhance efficiency. The freedom of wireless connectivity allows for a more flexible and comfortable workspace setup.

Keyboard and Mouse Combos

Software Considerations

At ProSoft, we sell hardware to do your work on and software to do your work with. When it comes to design, hardware and software compatibility affects efficiency, product quality, and the mental energy of the designer.

Along with computers for designers, ProSoft sells software for designers, including products by Autodesk and Bluebeam.

At ProSoft, we understand that the software you use for your design and engineering projects is just as important as your creative vision for a project. Because of this, we advocate for the powerful combination of Autodesk and Bluebeam software. These tools, each remarkable in their own right, synergize to create an efficient, intuitive, and comprehensive workflow.


Autodesk has long been a cornerstone in the world of design and engineering software. Known for its robust suite of tools like AutoCAD, Revit, and 3ds Max, Autodesk offers solutions that cater to a wide array of professionals — from architects and engineers to designers and animators.

Autodesk software is renowned for its versatility. Whether you're drafting intricate architectural plans in AutoCAD, modeling complex structures in Revit, or creating stunning visualizations in 3ds Max, Autodesk provides the tools to bring your visions to life.

A key strength of Autodesk is its ability to facilitate seamless collaboration. With cloud-based solutions and integration capabilities, team members can work together efficiently, regardless of their physical location.


While Autodesk excels in the creation and modeling aspects, Bluebeam Revu is the perfect partner for the documentation and review stages. Known for its PDF creation, editing, markup, and collaboration capabilities, Bluebeam Revu is a favorite among professionals who deal with extensive documentation and project reviews.

Bluebeam Revu transforms how documents and drawings are managed and makes creating, editing, and annotating project files easier. Its intuitive interface allows for quick adaptations of PDFs, an essential feature in fast-paced project environments.

Bluebeam also includes collaboration features. These features, such as Studio Projects and Studio Sessions, enable teams to collaborate in real-time, providing a platform for efficient communication and timely feedback.

ProSoft’s Software Suite: Where Autodesk’s Precision Meets Bluebeam’s Collaboration

When Autodesk and Bluebeam are used in conjunction, they form a formidable duo that covers virtually every aspect of the project lifecycle.

Using these two programs together helps projects grow easily from design to documentation. The journey from an initial design in Autodesk software to the final project documentation in Bluebeam is seamless. This integration ensures that data and quality are maintained when transitioning between different project stages.

Using Autodesk and Bluebeam simultaneously creates a streamlined workflow for your projects. Combining Autodesk’s powerful design tools and Bluebeam’s efficient documentation capabilities results in a streamlined workflow. This synergy not only saves time but also enhances the accuracy and quality of the final output.

The integration of Autodesk and Bluebeam software represents a holistic approach to design and engineering projects. At ProSoft, we believe in empowering our clients with the best tools in the industry, and this carefully crafted combination is a testament to our commitment to excellence.

Whether you are working on a small-scale design or a large engineering project, the Autodesk-Bluebeam duo is equipped to handle your needs with efficiency and precision. Embrace this powerful synergy and watch as your projects transform from mere concepts into tangible, high-quality creations.
