Projector is available on a monthly subscription basis starting at $15/user. We calculate monthly subscription fees at the end of the month based on the actual number of users, optional services, and integrations used for that month. There are no activation fees, termination fees, or minimum contract terms, so you're always in control of how you want to use Projector and for how long.
No matter which module or modules you choose, Projector provides foundational layers for each one to provide visibility, control, and integration.
Projector's Visibility layer includes a powerful analytical reporting engine that lets you design and create reports in Excel pivot tables, allowing you to perform ad-hoc analysis on the data without requiring an advanced degree in quantitative analytics. When combined with Projector's e-mail alerts and interactive dashboards, you'll always have an up-to-the-minute, accurate view of how your organization is doing.
The Control layer manages workflows and user permissions, giving you the ability to control who is allowed to do and see what and when. Full audit trails will show you who actually did what and when.
Our Integration layer allows you to integrate Projector with the other critical systems your organization uses. Whether you take advantage of Projector's pre-built interfaces to applications such as QuickBooks, Great Plains, SalesForce, and Microsoft Project, or use the web services to build integrations with other systems, Projector's open architecture provides the advantages of best-of-breed thinking with fully integrated systems.
Pragmatic tool for professional services automationMatt22nd of February, 2013 16:07
For companies that either need more than ad-hoc software to manage professional service projects or that have sophisticated requirements but don’t want the cost or complexity of an all-embracing suite, Projector is a compelling choice. Its feature set delivers the advanced functionality needed for project forecasting, planning and management. Its simple interface makes it easy to use, not only for individual end users but also for people in finance, management and the executive suite. The results speak for themselves. Companies that use Projector have better utilization rates than people who use competing professional services automation tools (76% versus 72%) and much better results than companies who don’t use anything (and manage to achieve just 66% utilization). This is worth an extra 1.3 months a year of billability for every resource, easily justifying the cost of a system like Projector. Given Projector’s competitive price, companies can achieve a rapid and substantial return on their investment and address the most pressing business issues facing professional services firms. In short, the critical path to success runs through Projector.
Making Your Professional Service Firm Work in Difficult TimesRakesh Sharma18th of January, 2013 11:40
I liked Projector because it combines multiple aspects of project management with resource scheduling and accounting. It turns all the microscopic, day-to-day activities involved in managing and delivering projects into enterprise-level perspective about the health of the organization as a whole. Instead of trying to be all things to all people, Projector PSA integrates with third-party solutions to achieve focus and simplicity. In turn, this enables employees and management to focus on tasks and initiatives that really matter. Whether or not your organization actually does a lot of fixed price work, Projector brings the focus, the discipline, the visibility, and the automation to let you get the most out of your resources and more specifically your PS team.
Wish we had moved to Projector earlierJim Hennessy11th of September, 2012 14:53
As CEO of a small consulting firm (~50 team members), we knew we had long outgrown our spreadsheet-based methods for team members to report time and expenses, and to generate invoices. After spending over a year evaluating options to migrate to, we made the move to Projector and completed a migration within 2-3 weeks. The system has totally transformed our operations, and excited our team members and customers. Team members highlighted our switch to Projector as one of their top "satisfiers" in a recent employee survey - they love it. Customers have responded to the improvements in our invoices. However, the visibility into our current engagements and resource utilization has been the most important achievement for our management team. The dashboarding and flexibility of reports and real-time visibility has been incredible. The problems with historical records that we found as a result of the migration pointed out the risks & issues that we were not even aware of with our previous "platform." We have complete confidence and audit-ability of our records now. Needless to say, we are satisfied and enthusiastic customers of Projector!
