Easy project management with project templates

Make quality assurance easy and streamline your company with our project templates, so you can spend your time on value creating activities.

 

Project templates; The ideal tool for project managers, who often run uniformised projects or work based on a specific model.

We have made it easy for you to maintain your project templates and make changes to them, when the need therefore arises. When you make changes in one of your templates, you are automatically asked if you would also like to update all or some of the projects, which you have created based on your template. In this way, you can update all existing projects with e.g. new services with just one click, and you do not have to update each project manually.

This is especially good for you, if you work hour/case oriented with your customer projects.
