Projects could basically be about anything: from building a new house, to setting up a new marketing campaign or building a new website from scratch.

In Teamleader, a project could be the next step once a deal is accepted: the actions you take to live up to what you promised to do in your quotation, but it could also be an internal project.

A project grants you the option to easily schedule tasks and meetings while keeping an overview of the overall progress, to monitor the use of the allocated budget and to draw up detailed reports. Thanks to our revamped project planning module, you can even spread the workload within just a few clicks.

Each project visualizes its profit by giving an overview of the costs you've incurred in relation to the revenue of the project. Read more on profit margin on projects!
