Your work is all about building a brilliant world around us. Making spaces and places that positively impact people’s lives. Whether you’re a director, partner, principal, practice manager, business manager, or senior project designer, you just want to deliver great architecture projects without your management systems getting in the way.
I’m a director, partner, or CEO of an architecture business
You’re steering the success of your architecture business. You want to drive it by doing great work, that shapes our world. We know the best way you can do that is by utilising your assets successfully. So, you’ve got two levers to direct your growth and profit:
1. Your employees
How can you track who’s working on what, and when, in real time? How can you see, at a glance, if a resource is being over-used? Or underutilized? How can you make sure employees you have available in the future match the capacity you’ll require?
2. Your clients
Which clients pay on time? Who gives you the most work? In which area of the business? Which ones tend to throw the most variations on their projects?
Our single focus is to put those two levers into your hands, in real time. Our software is built with and for architects, so we understand which features are critical to you.

A GUIDE TO GROWTH

Growing your AEC practice isn’t always straightforward, especially when you got into business to do design, not run a business. In this no-strings guide to business growth, we share 20 years experience of helping AEC businesses of all shapes and sizes grow.

I’m a senior project manager of an architecture business
You’re all about delivering incredible architecture projects and we know that means accountability (and KPIs) across almost every aspect of your practice. You look after:
- Project staff and budgets
- Collaboration across decentralized teams
- Progress reporting
- Schedules, deadlines, and resources
That’s a lot to juggle. You’re out there winning business and executing profitable projects, and we hear constantly about the need for tools to deliver on both counts. How can you see where your projects are at without them?
Our single focus is on providing those tools to allow you to monitor your projects, in real-time, across budgets, resource, and time — from anywhere, at any point, stage, or task in your project’s progress. Our software is built with and for architects, so we understand which features are critical to you.
