Project Ally was created by an architect, Lesley Paiva, to help design professionals manage their business with ease. Design professionals depend upon Project Ally to simplify their work, save time and promote accuracy.
Lesley recognized the need for Projecy Ally while she was an intern architect. After graduating with a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech, she was shocked and disappointed to discover how little time architects are able to devote to design; information management takes up at least 90% of an architect's time (or, at least, it seems that way). Luckily, in 1994 she happened upon a copy of Filemaker Pro 2.0 and decided, "Hey, a database would save us a lot of time and help us stay organized. And then I can spend more time on design!" Now she wants to share her knowledge and continuing efforts with you.
