The new "lite" project management solution 

Do you need a new or a better project management tool?

Do you need a project tool that integrates seamlessly with different systems?

Do you need a project management tool that has everything you need without the surplus features you wouldn’t need to use?

Do you need a cost effective, easy to use, simple to implement project tool?

Are you an SMB with project management needs but without the budget to invest in bigger Project Management tools that often require other additional tools to operate optimally?

From our experience of working with over 850 SMBs, we have identified that sometimes SMBs need a project management tool that is truly tailored to their specific needs. Big enough to do what you need but small enough not to cost the earth to buy and implement.

The need to invest in one of the bigger tools that are available can sometimes limit SMBs in acquiring the project management tools that they need. Often Project Management tools have features that are surplus to requirements. If your business is looking for an easy to implement and install project management tool, then read on to find out more about Cloud9’s Project Lite tool.

Many of our clients have their customer, sales and project delivery data in different places, meaning their teams are not communicating and lack a single view. Project Lite eradicates this issue as it collates data from different sources into one place no matter what CRM you are using.
