Software Description:

Forecast is a cloud-based Project Portfolio Management solution, which makes you able to plan, budget and run projects predictably, and profitably.

We use machine-learning capabilities to predict, and estimate the unknown values you deal with on a daily basis as a project manager. Reports are generated automatically in real-time, and are available on both project-, and business level.

This should all make you able to execute better, and more intelligent business decisions for your organization.

Software Description:

This software consists of four base modules, which are available in each package—as well as the free version. The modules included in Zoho Projects are Tasks and Milestones, Documents, Project Calendars, and Meetings and Forums.
It lets the people in the project communicate easily, discuss ideas and stay updated with the latest developments.
The solution is suitable for businesses in any industry. Although project management departments will get the most use out of Zoho Projects, the platform can actually be used by employees in a number of positions or roles within a company.
