From our Development Laboratory
PROAD is the most popular software in the project business - and to keep it this way, we develop new features almost daily, streamline existing work flows and tune the design. Our target is to provide you with the smartest, most contemporary and intuitive software on the market. We therefore regularly share information with our users and get reputable technology and UX-experts on board as our "sparring partners".
Not every idea can make it into our releases and many minor improvements seem unspectacular at first, but in fact contribute to more straightforward and uncomplicated operations. We would like to present you with the most important product news and previews.
In PROAD, your productive time is defined in addition to your contractually agreed working hours. This is the time you should typically spend on chargeable projects. With the new "Productivity" widget, you can now see your personal productivity score at any time. The widget determines your individual productive time from the master data, deducts sick leave and approved holidays in the period under consideration and thus represents your personal target value for productive time. This is the number of hours you should work as billable time per week or per month. Your actual value is determined from your time recording entries, i.e. the number of hours you have worked on client projects (and if desired also on projects for prospects). Your productivity is calculated from the ratio of both values and displayed as a percentage in the widget.read more

Until 31 January 2022, a "XRechnung" will still be created according to the version standard valid until then. In order to be able to create a valid "XRechnung" from 01 February 2022, a previous update of PROAD is absolutely necessary.read more
