    Manage permissions easily. Bring in outsiders into your private office chat system as needed. Remove them when the project is over. Keep track of what is shared with whom. Keep track of who is working on what file.

    Keep track of the issues in your projects. Open up the issue system selectively to your clients and consultants. Track who in the office is working on which issue in which project

    TAD and these Architects Desktop servers arose from a company (Syncspace) started by an architect (Sabu Francis) He has been dilgently working on using computers for architecture since 1989. He won the 1991 Special JIIA award for Architectural research. He is the author of TAD, the world's first space-based BIM software. It allows you to design right from early stages onwards

    We are very empathetic to architects lives and their way of working. You will find that we truly understand both the subject of architecture as well as its practice

    The cloud servers we have carefully created for architects contain all that is needed for running any architect's office anywhere. It has both trusted open-source software as well as software written by us, to help you in file-management, people- management, private chatting for your organization (No more whatsapp groups)

    It even has the server component of TAD Designer; which you can put into use the moment you are comfortable with TAD (soon to be released). With TAD Designer you can even design with fellow architects over the Internet. It is our ambition to support an open source design movement in architecture See
