I'm pleased to say we've seen tremendous benefits to our business using CMAP. It has assisted greatly in our ability to measure and manage our projects, thereby transforming our overall performance.

– Adam Sharples, Finance Director, XEIAD

CMAP has really switched our staff on. They feel they have more ownership of projects as they can see their dashboards and budget vs. actual performance. If a request comes in, their first thought now is ‘did we allow for that in the fee?'

– John Haynes, Director, IDP Group

CMAP is the only integrated project management solution, designed with architects in mind, that can grow and evolve as we do.

– Richard Holland, Director, Holland Harvey Achitects

Our project workers have really benefited from using CMAP, they can now see how much time they’ve been allocated to a project against the time they’ve spent on it, as well as how long they have left – that works really well.

– Mark Camidge, Director, Chaplin Farrant

We chose CMAP because it offered us the functionality we needed to run the practice, combined with a modern, user-friendly interface that our entire team can easily adapt to.

– Paul O'Brien, Associate, Carl Turner Architects

We were really encouraged by positive reviews from other architectural firms we spoke to, who could demonstrate how implementing CMAP had not only streamlined their resource-management, but had fundamentally improved their internal processes & procedures for the better.

– Fiona Scott, Director, Gort Scott
