Deliver projects on time and within budget through streamlined planning

Project management is often a complex juggling act that involves managing crucial timelines, multiple resources and strict budgets. The larger your projects are, the more difficult they are to effectively manage, as there are more variables that could affect the profitability and success of the project. Access to historical data about past projects and future resource capacity is crucial to develop an effective project plan with realistic objectives.

The manufacturing and engineering industry is a dynamic space that is driven by fierce competition, resulting in rapid innovation. In order to achieve profit margin objectives, engineering and manufacturing firms need a comprehensive project planning system that streamlines, integrates and manages all variables. This will result in less time being spent on mundane administrative tasks, and more time on improving client satisfaction through successful project completion.

  • Choose the level of detail (simple to complex) to suit your project’s requirements.
  • Accurate management and billing through flexible, multi-level work breakdown structures and adaptable billing modes.


  • Depending on the complexity of the project, resources can either be assigned to the whole project, or to single activities.
  • Ensure that resources are available as and when you need them by gaining complete insight into individual resource capacity.
