Our extensive project experience guided us in building a solution that reduces a non-profit's pain of dealing with change.

Are Project Problems Bogging You Down?

Employee requests help with projects
  • Staff assigned to lead projects don't know where to start.

  • Project teams "wing it" when doing projects.

  • Constant conflict between team members on how to proceed.​​

  • Project status is difficult to understand.

  • Project results don't meet what was expected.

  • Commitments are missed, and costs and schedule increase.

  • Projects seem never to end.

We've learned that the items above are not problems. They're symptoms.

Are Your To-do Lists Unmanageable?

  • Are you expanding your non-profit?

  • Are you or will you be implementing a new service?

  • Do you need to apply for a grant?

  • Will you be adding new Board members?

  • Do you need to update your website?

  • Are you or will you be doing a fundraiser?

  • Will you need to onboard new employees or volunteers?

  • Do you need to create or update your strategic plan?

We've learned that the items above are not
action items. 
They're projects.

From a Recent User:

"I especially like its built-in “smart templates" - which starts me off, then holds my hand every step of the way. This software helped me stay focused on accomplishing my goals and offered unobtrusive reminders to the events that needed attention. I also like how it allowed me to pull in other team members, allowing a more collaborative approach to assignments.

Project-Assistant software stands out as a complete package, rich in content, tutorials, and guided work-flows.  Although it's designed with the beginner in mind, it's certainly more than just your average "To-Do" list. PA doesn't skimp with functionality and content and once you get the hang of it's unique user-interface, you're on your way to accomplishing your goals. "
