KeyedIn Projects offers all the benefits of PSA software, within a broader solution that also supports team collaboration and executive reporting. You can select which processes you want to automate, and customise steps within them.
By automating a host of core processes involved in service delivery, KeyedIn Projects helps cut the time spent on everyday project admin and accelerate tasks such as financial reporting and billing. As soon as certain user-defined thresholds are reached, the next stage in the process is triggered – whether that’s creating an invoice or sending instructions to a specific team member.
As well as offering comprehensive time and expense recording, capturing the latest information about every task, KeyedIn Projects gives project and program managers the ability to act on the knowledge: escalating problems, implementing changes.
By gathering every detail about every project in a single solution, KeyedIn Projects helps you analyze which processes are causing delays and where resources are being under-utilized or over-stretched. You can then optimize the project by introducing process changes to address these issues.
KeyedIn Projects supports multiple billing types including time & materials billing, fixed price billing, capped billing, milestone billing, advance billing and repeat billing. The system is highly configurable, and supports ad hoc invoicing as well as complex chargeability calculations.
By providing a single, consolidated view of every task, status, cost and deliverable, KeyedIn Projects empowers program managers with the information they need, in the way they need it. Whether that’s simply tracking risks, benefits and overall progress across inter-connected projects, rapidly drilling down to identify potential issues or analyzing the precise detail of individual tasks within individual projects, KeyedIn Projects offers a range of tools to improve project governance and enable early intervention to avert project failure.
To keep track of a multi-project program, you need standard reports and indicators that make it easy to monitor progress. KeyedIn Projects allows you to introduce and (where necessary) impose standardized ways of working, such as templates for reports, so you can scrutinize every detail in the way you need to.
A seemingly innocuous change in one project can derail a wider program. When change requests come in, KeyedIn Projects makes it easy to assess their impact. Identify exactly who and what would be affected, and how. Then model different scenarios and options to find the least disruptive solution. Then, easily update program documents within KeyedIn Projects: enter data once and it’s rolled out across the whole program.
Introduce new ways of working that make a tangible difference to project and program success. From automated billing to customizable alerts to more usable timesheets, KeyedIn Projects helps you make simple but effective changes across the business.
KeyedIn Projects not only provides you with the management dashboard that helps you see what’s going on across each project, it also gives you the ability to act.

You can see what’s happening where, and when, and understand exactly how the project is progressing against the plans you made.
Keeping track of time and budget is an essential part of project management success. KeyedIn Projects includes an intuitive time recording tool, with flexible timesheets, that means there’s no excuse for your team not submitting on time.

KeyedIn Projects integrates seamlessly with other enterprise software, including ERP and CRM, eliminating duplication of data entry. It also provides intuitive web-based project collaboration features, that ensure the whole team has access to the information they need, and offering a forum for discussing and resolving issues.
You can set up your own alerts for the risks that matter most – and when things change, KeyedIn Projects help you adapt. Move a deadline on a task, and the rest of the project documentation can automatically update too, including to-do lists and individual schedules. Less effort, more impact.
With KeyedIn Projects, portfolio managers use exactly the same management tool as the individual project managers they direct. That means it’s far easier to share information, make informed decisions about the prioritization of programs and projects, make go, no-go stage gate decisions, or decide when and if to reallocate resource across the portfolio – as well as maintain a clear view of the bigger picture and where necessary drill down into the detail.
This results in enhanced reporting, increased responsiveness and a richer understanding of the potential consequences of every change in project scope.
From providing a controlled start-up process, to supporting you in balancing short, medium and long-term projects across the portfolio, KeyedIn Projects facilitates strategic alignment – in project selection and in delivery. You can see where delays or changes jeopardize the achievement of strategic goals and targets, and respond.
In project portfolio management, you constantly have to make decisions about priorities across multiple projects: do you shift resources to keep project A on track at the risk of delaying project B? KeyedIn Projects helps you make informed decisions about where your priorities should lie, based on a full understanding of the consequences across the whole portfolio. It also helps you look into the longer term, identifying whether existing resources could cope with additional projects. If not, you can decide whether to recruit, reallocate or reject the opportunity.
A seemingly innocuous change in one project can have a significant impact on the entire project portfolio. When change requests come in, you can analyze their impact using KeyedIn Projects – seeing exactly who and what would be affected, and how. If you decide to accept the scope change, you can easily update project and program schedules within KeyedIn Projects: enter data once and it’s rolled out across the whole business
To keep track of a multi-project portfolio, you need standard reports and indicators that make it easy to monitor progress. KeyedIn Projects PPM software allows you to introduce and (where necessary) impose standardized ways of working, such as templates for reports, so you can scrutinize every detail in the way you need to.
Before KeyedIn, we worked as three separate groups—engineering, operations, and customer installations. KeyedIn was huge for us in allowing us to bring in engineering projects that handle product releases, operation projects that would be maintaining our existing platforms, and then customer projects that were ongoing and fast-paced. Before we had no way of tracking that. KeyedIn’s dashboards allows us to see each one of those areas separately or all at once.
KeyedIn helps us deliver more projects on time. Our techs can see their priorities and can tell where a request falls on the priority list. Response from senior management has been exceptional—they can go in and run a real-time information on the projects.
