Web-based Multi-Project Management solution with low introduction and operating costs

A solution like KLUSA has to do more than simply meet the functional requirements: it also needs to be easy to integrate into your IT landscape and economical to operate.

As it is a web application there is no need to install it on the individual user PCs. Web application and database are administered centrally. The administration of KLUSA is exclusively conducted via a web GUI.

Several adaptable connectors are available to help you integrate KLUSA seamlessly into an ERP environment.  These connectors guarantee data exchange and synchronisation of personnel data, costs, expenses or allocation data with SAP or other systems.

KLUSA is a fully web-based multi-project management solution. The scaleable architecture can be economically deployed even in smaller access scenarios as well as to support large businesses with 1,000 or more project managers..

KLUSA Test Version
 

KLUSA - Free trial, No obligation!

The decision for the choice and implementation of a project management tool should be based on an in-depth analysis. To assist this analysis, we are providing a test instance on demand. After all, it is about a tool that manages important information, many employees have to work with, and that many times provides the data basis for major corporate decisions. Also, the IT that implements and maintains the solution has an influential word here. And In the medium term the investment costs are usually only a small part of the total cost of ownership (TCO) i.e. the expected use to be derived has to be justified in the light of the TCO. So wouldn’t it be great if you could test the software to its limits in daily business without having to buy a pig in a poke? Well, with KLUSA you can – right away!

  • A KLUSA test instance has the advantage a) of already existing example data (projects and roles), and b) the full functionality of KLUSAs Enterprise Edition is ready for testing.
