Project Management Tools Product Review- Projecker

Project-Management-tools-Product Review-projeckerThere are many tools available to manage projects within a business, to facilitate easy file sharing, communication, and reporting. However, there are not many tools which extend their functionality to the customers as well. When a customer approaches a business, he is doubtful whether the business has understood his requirements and expectation.

By providing a regular report to the customer it can be easily ensured that the project will meet his needs and if there is any rework, it can be done instantaneously. Projecker is a tool which allows proactive reporting to the customers and maintains transparency in the project management process.
