Project Management Features:

Detailed Project Management Budgeting

Project managers can choose how to track performance of projects to budget, ranging from a basic summary of hours to a more complex revenue budget, time-phased by week, and broken down by activity. Project delivery teams can also track performance based on burn rates or cumulative spend, budget consumed to date, or projected performance at completion.

Projector PSA in project management enables users to clearly see the difference between being under budget versus behind schedule, by showing spend to date in real time, as well as what objectives have been accomplished with that spend.

Projector can also define “thresholds” on budgets that will trigger automatic email alerts to warn when projects are at risk of going over budget. These answers provide the opportunity to make adjustments before it’s too late.

Project Staffing/Resourcing

Projector’s SmartMatch resource scheduling algorithm looks across multiple factors to identify the best-equipped resource to manage a project. Project resources can be identified based on specific attributes, such as “required,” “preferred” and “acceptable” qualifications. This presents a more accurate depiction of which resource(s) could successfully complete a given project task.

SmartMatch then balances those attributes against the flexibility within a resource’s existing bandwidth. It ensures a resource has the capacity to complete and deliver a quality project on time and under budget.

Project Management Workspaces

The Project Management module provides project delivery teams and clients with secure access to virtual project collaboration areas. These project workspaces offer keyword search, version control, issues tracking, risk management, and many more features to help virtual, geographically dispersed teams collaborate together to ensure the successful delivery of their projects.

Projector’s client portal helps professional services organizations get paid for their work faster by giving clients instant access to issued invoices, due dates, and payment status.

Advanced Project Management Task Tracking

Projector’s project management software application creates bottom-up hierarchical project plans that describe individual tasks, the resources assigned to them, timelines, and deadlines, displaying them as Gantt charts or simple task lists based on users’ personal preferences. Once tasks are created in Projector, they can be modeled using complex dependencies with leads and lags, assigned, and displayed online with due dates to the the relevant staff. Projector can also easily import and export Microsoft Project plans if desired.

Project Managers are freed from unnecessary busywork by automating timesheet and task status collection. Projector uses this information to help quickly assess the state of entire projects based on measures such as performance to budget and schedule, or using earned value metrics.

Projector also quickly becomes a rich reserve of historical information with continued use. Team leaders and managers at service organizations or consulting firms can lean on this data to plan future projects more accurately.
