Dmitry Kornyukhov

Easily one of the best project management tools for freelance translators

2019-07-19

Protemos is a free tool that knows how to tackle the common project management pitfalls of freelance translators.

Pros

This tool was clearly designed by someone who is passionate about project management and know real pains of freelance translators.

Cons

The tool could benefit from integrating with 3rd party API, for example would be great to use Stripe to accept payments for invoices that Protemos creates.

2018-05-14

Better organized, faster project management.

I certainly appreciate the User-friendliness, the reactive customer service and the reasonable price.

Protemos has been a very suitable solution for our needs!

2018-05-22

Faster turnaround times while preparing the quotations and efficient vendor management.

Pros

Our team has easily adopted to Protemos since it has a user friendly UI. Protemos team also provides excellent support and they are very responsive to our request for customizing the system in accordance with customers needs.

Cons

It would be better if we could customize some of the templates (e.g: quote, invoice) without contacting to the developers team.

Bernardo Pereira

Overall, it´s a great system that fulfills all my management needs.

2018-05-25

All my management needs are fulfilled at a very competitive pricing!

Pros

Whether it´s project or job creation, invoicing, statistics, etc. the system has it all.

Cons

There´s really nothing to point out on what I like least about this software, except for the fact that I have some issues when importing a CAT log file from Studio, but this has to do with the version I use and this will be sorted out in the next versions.

.), basic project management tool, clear invoice list with what's coming at term what is overdue, clear project list, easy to manage.

Response from Protemos


Dear Oksana,

Thank you for your feedback.
As for mobiles, about 1 year ago we reworked UI for mobiles: https://protemos.com/news/version-1.22-released.html.

So currently it works much better on mobiles than at the time when you registered.

Best regards,
Volodymyr

Cons

The financial information model is not fully adapted to taxes in Spain, but Protemos´ support team is working to solve this :)

Protemos review

2018-09-13

I am very satisfied with using Protemos. Even a free version for freelancers has everything required for managing projects and invoicing.

Pros

What I like about this software is: 1) Integration with Proz; 2) Export of information to Excel spreadsheets; 3) Customer-friendly interface; 4) Availability of versions localized to other languages.

Cons

What I like the least is the necessity to insert e-mail addresses of new clients, which is not very convenient as I am concerned that the software will be bothering them by sending anything.

Cons

Some features are not readily available, however developers listening to users and integrating them as required.

Project management and invoicing with Protemos

2018-09-13

My admin and invoicing system used to be a bit of a headache, Protemos makes it easier to find things and it is quicker to do the invoicing.

Pros

It is easy to use and since it is online, I can access it from any device that is connected to the internet.

Cons

I find the invoicing and reporting functions a bit awkward to use at times, my clients want their invoices done in different ways and it would be nice to be able to customize the invoices more.

excellent tool for independant finances

2018-09-13

Thanks to Protemos, I can master my budget and plan my projects more effectively.

Simple, intuitive and powerful accounting system

2018-05-22

Easy and intuitive process of accounting on translation projects

Pros

It's powerful enough to cover all our accounting needs, yet is simple and intuitive both for managers and freelancers. The system is constantly improved and development team is very sensitive to our custom needs.

Cons

We still lack some functionality - some routine processes could be further automated, however the system is constantly improved and developers do listen to our queries.

Why we at Ludejo work with Protemos

2019-04-16

. - Protemos gives a daily and monthly monetairy overview of the projects in a logically divided way, which is for a leader good data to manage the company and drive it into the wanted direction.

Pros

. - onboarding new staff is very easy, as Protemos isn't hard to learn to use, while at the same time the software is extended enough for our business. - we don't get all kinds of heavy stuff we would never use. - the responsiveness when it comes to needs we have expressed to the Protemos-team (and the speed they implemented the features to fulfill those needs).

Cons

- in the beginning, when we started to work with Protemos (2017), there were some features we didn't have, which we did need.
