Innate Integrates Projects
Large and Small
Innate Timesheets and Innate Resource Manager from Innate Management
Systems (www.innateus.com) are especially helpful if you’re juggling
multiple projects that range from small to large. You can use Innate to manage
the human resources who work on smaller projects in your organization and
are also busy on larger projects that you plan in Microsoft Project. Innate
Timesheets can group resources in various useful ways.

prioritize resource assignments. Innate Timesheets is tracking software, but
it offers more than Project does in this area. You can do productivity
comparisons across several tasks or projects. You can also tap into sophisticated
billing systems and integrate project information with accounting and payroll
systems in ways that enhance Project 12 budget-tracking features.
