Plan to Act!


Use pre-made templates

We've included over ten new templates which can serve as a model to help you build your own projects, or you can customize them to suit your own needs

Budget and cost-track projects

Keep the project on track with basic budgeting and cost tracking. Then compare your estimates to actual budget spends and time consumption

Assign tasks to your team

Identify problems and potential solutions then optimize resource management and accountability with clear roles and responsibilities

Enhanced gantt charts

Set dependencies between tasks so date changes are automatically updated for an entire project plan. The Gantt chart opens in a starter schedule for new projects by setting today as the start date and assigning a Four-day duration to each task
The only
project management tool
to work with

Calendar integration

Keep everyone notified about what and when things need to be done or any changes in schedule. Plan your activities in Project KickStart, and then "push" those tasks directly to Act!, while choosing the contacts & users on the fly!

Import contacts

Added flexibility in getting your contacts and resources into the application. The ability to import your coworkers, partners, or vendors from Act! CRM means less time with copy and pasting, or inputting those resources manually.

Project KickStart is a real confidence builder. You sit down with it, and in about 30 minutes, you can put together a very impressive project plan and schedule. Nobody believes it's that easy until they use Project KickStart for the first time. After that, they're converts.

"All too often, though, we find ourselves overwhelmed by our impending tasks and cannot figure out WHERE to start. Project Kickstart makes this dreaded task a snap! By prompting me to identify obstacles, and offering the opportunity to assign people to tasks, it turns chaos into a plan."
R. Henderson - President, Biocon

"Project Kickstart is perfect for brainstorming sessions. It's easy to use, and helps define goals, organize thoughts, and identify all the dependencies and sub-projects that you didn't realize existed until management and end user groups began their brain dumps."
