Projector offers an enormous amount of functionality for driving your day-to-day business operations. But at the end of the day you also have a need to look back over operations and get a look at the big picture. Projector reports are where much of this information is derived from. Analyze hundreds of data points, roll up months or years of operations data and quickly get a look at your organizations past health, current health and future positions. Then use Projector's report scheduling and distribution features to keep your entire management team in the loop and projects on target.
