MARIProject

Project management and professional services automation

With MARIProject, small and medium-sized businesses can comprehensively control their projects. Manage everything from calculation, planning, resource management, purchasing, time recording and billing, to analysis and reports.

MARIProject helps you to calculate projects economically and edit and evaluate projects up to the current day, without losing time transferring data to other systems. While you are planning resources and capacities in the Gantt view, MARIProject automatically adds the relevant costs and revenues. In addition to a flexible module for recording time and travel expenses, the solution includes a web-based support desk for the efficient processing of software tickets and service dashboards for on-site customer service, e.g. product maintenance.

The solution integrates with SAP Business One to provide a clear view of the economic success of your projects. Crucial data is available at your fingertips via flexible reports, which are easy to design. For this reason, MARIProject with SAP Business One is the optimal solution for project-driven small and medium-sized businesses.
