1It’s LAN-based, not Web-based. Why worry about the vulnerabilities of Web browsers and Web servers whenever you work with your important data? Projetex is installed on your own server and can be accessed via your LAN without any Internet access at all; you don’t have to depend on your ISP. However, it’s also possible to connect to it remotely when needed.
2 This translation agency-management software is extremely flexible. Custom user-defined fields and variables enable customization of most parts of the program. And it will look like it was developed especially for your translation business.
3 Based on a reliable database platform, which does not require any additional licensing, and powered by Microsoft SQL Server Express®, Projetex allows you to set up a database server on any computer in your network. Data is stored securely, and you can perform back-ups at short notice without stopping the server. The best thing is that you don’t need to pay hundreds of euros for it. Other software is much more expensive because it includes the cost of the database licence in its own price.
4 Allowing secure concurrent access of multiple workstations, Projetex works with multiple user accounts while enforcing highly customized individual access rights. It also allows for manageable access to every area of the database. This guarantees that all your data is secure and that data can only be viewed by people you assign appropriate rights to.

All your projects and client- and vendor-related files are stored and automatically organized in a logical folder structure created with a single mouseclick. All your corporate workflow documents can be stored for future reference using fully customizable RTF templates. This saves a lot of time and you have all your files structured in the right way as well.

All of them are structured in a straightforward and intuitive way.
14Detailed filters with various time and status spans allow users to filter project records by various conditions. Colour highlights are available for current projects and jobs.

19Projetex’s invoice-management system means that you will never forget a single invoice or payment again thanks to the program’s advanced invoicing and payment features. Projetex allows you to keep tabs on overdue invoices or completed jobs that have not yet been invoiced. Furthermore, discounts, tax and different currencies are all supported. You can even use the built-in templates or create your own custom documents.
20 Projetex offers a searchable client database in which you can enter all the important information about your clients: contacts, project managers, files, projects, assignments, marketing information, prices, quotes, invoices and payments.
