You may use different tools like Excel, email, accounting programs, but they are still not as effective as any translation business management system created to keep all your records, files and data in one place and access it anytime.
If you are still not using any project management software for translation agencies, you are losing opportunities for your business. And if you invest a bit of your time to discover the TMS tools like Protemos, it will save you hundreds of your hours in the future. Even if your agency grows without using any translation management system, sooner or later you'll get a "black box", i.e. stop understanding what is happening in your company and won't be able to develop it further even by working huge hours overtime or hiring lots of people and building a bureaucracy.
Protemos is able to take a huge part of translation project management load from you by keeping and managing all your clients, translators, project, translation tasks, files, invoices, payments and business reports. Just try it by investing a bit of your time and asking us questions, and you'll see the change.
