Why use a lot         ...when one will do!


Rather than using a suite of different apps

When your project information is stored in separate systems - multiple spreadsheets, documents and design software, finding, amending and archiving is never simple and certainly never rapid.

...why not use one that does it all

AP is the result of experiencing these very frustrations first hand - developed with the sole desire to streamline tedious paperwork. Where traditionally a full Lighting document package takes 2 weeks, AP achieves it in less than two days.

The Problem



Repeatedly entering the same data into

different Apps is not only time and energy sapping, it is also a process prone to error. 



Your project information is stored in separate systems - finding, amending and archiving is never simple.


You look at developing your own solution, but it's prohibitively expensive and demands too much of your time.



'Off the shelf' software doesn't do what you need, is not really relevant and does not link with current systems.

Our Solution


Comfort in the knowledge that data is always accurate and stunningly presented. AP automates everything throughout the BPM chain.



Data stored centrally, available instantly with teams working simultaneously on the same project or individually on any project.


Modify AP to suit your business model with tailored templates to match your

own brand identity.
