Every project manager wants to ensure that their project runs smoothly, completes on time, and within budget. That’s their job. For those keen to excel, however, project profitability is the supreme goal. Now there is project management software with finance expertise available
Ensuring your project delivers value for the time, effort, and resources invested helps your business maintain a competitive edge. Unfortunately, factors such as scope creep and low employee utilisation can easily skew the outcome. Particularly when real-time finance data is hard to access.
Projo helps redress this balance. Unlike traditional project accounting where a quote is issued at the outset and passed to finance to bill on completion, Projo is software with finance expertise and embeds accounts functionality directly within your project management platform. Helping you track profitability every step of the way and that’s why we’re excited to launch Projo as a new service offering.

How can Projo help?
Let’s take a look at the key Projo features designed to help you assess and improve project profitability.
Get the full picture
Taking a top-down view of resources, utilisation rates, and accounts provides a bird’s eye view of project profitability. Projo delivers this long lens approach, letting you view all projects from a single screen. With access to the full picture, you can identify risks easily and take corrective action in real-time.
Plan in detail
Careful project planning helps you organise the various elements of your strategy and prioritise tasks. With Projo, you can set milestones and project tasks with clear start, end, and due dates. Visibility on current completion status helps manage project progress with a Ganntt chart for every project to help you easily plan and track progress.
Control project profitability
With full invoice and expense tracking, project financial status is easier to monitor and analyse at any point in the project lifecycle. A clearer view of profit margins can help you understand growth, revenue, and overhead costs, providing information on overall profitability that will inform your future business choices.
Simplify resource management
Resource planning requires extensive preparation. Projo helps reduce that burden with a clear view of availability and resource capacity. Assign project tasks onto a resources calendar to schedule time against a specific project. With multiple views and filters, the resource planner offers vital information on resource utilisation and capacity. So you can see what skills are available and when.
