What are Project Smart Summaries?

Project Smart Summaries leverage generative AI to generate a concise, accurate summary of your project. Whether you’re dealing with lengthy reports or complex datasets, Project Smart Summaries distill the essence of project information into digestible insights.


“The Project Smart Summary feature is easy to set up and use. The summaries are accurate, and the information is divided into sections so you can quickly find what you need. I think our project managers and owners will find this feature very helpful.”

– Terry Sanderford, Fluhrer Reed PA, Early Adopter Participant

Contents at a Glance: The Essence of Project Smart Summaries

Each section of the Project Smart Summary includes actionable project-centric insights designed to aid with informed decision making, profitability assessment, risk identification and performance tracking.

Overview: find pertinent project information all stakeholders need including the project status, stage, location, primary client and key project employees that you may need to reach out to regarding project deliverables. Included as well are two subcategories detailing the project’s upcoming milestones and the active phases and tasks.

Financial Health: a financial synopsis for awarded projects provides a clear view of financial aspects enabling project managers to proactively manage a project’s financial health.

Measure project progress and productivity by comparing total compensation with earned revenue and revenue backlog.

Assess the liquidity and cash flow of the project with billed and accounts receivable metrics. These are also beneficial in understanding client payment patterns, essential for managing credit risk and evaluating payment terms.

Profitability and percent complete help determine the project’s progress and financial viability, while the estimate to complete revenue information draws your attention to future forecasting requirements and resource allocation tasks.

Pursuit Summary:  prioritize in-pursuit projects by assessing the likelihood of winning these projects with a review of the pursuit summary information. The estimated fee, probability and weighted fee information included in this section helps provide a realistic financial projection of the opportunity.

Recent Activities: stay updated with the most recent developments by reviewing the five most recent activities of the project. Review the recent activities to schedule and plan meetings with stakeholders and follow up on activities necessary to move the pursuit forward or keep the project on track.

Plan Summary: keep track of the plan schedule and labor estimate at completion information. You can also review information regarding top employee resources based on the highest estimate at completion hours, which is crucial for resource planning.
