proRM increases the project efficiencies in the day to day operations of consultants, thanks to targeted resource planning and reduced project associated risk. As a result of the intuitive and project based recording of hours, performance and outgoings, users enjoy a full overview of the status, costs, and results of all projects in real-time.
