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 specification package takes 2 weeks, AP achieves it in less than two days.

SO HOW CAN AUTOPRACTICE HELP?
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.
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.
Connect dynamically with other systems - External SQL, ODBC/JDBC, XML, import, .csv
We believe the Lighting profession needs a shake up, yes we’re a leading industry in product innovation and there’s incredible software for photometry and 3D modelling and of course design, but we think it’s now time for easily accessible data. We are not talking about importing .csv BIM files, we mean live data from a Manufacturers product base. This surmounts to up to date information on prices, tech info, inventory and instant specification. So get on board and let’s start this revolution.
