Managing your operations shouldn't involve guesswork.
Alongside taking care of your core service offerings, you're also tasked with juggling the day-to-day management of your operations. With various schedules, budgets, expenses, and invoices across multiple projects, the questions and unknowns can quickly pile up...
Take control of your data
Format Projects helps you track project data from proposal through completion to keep your team synced and to build helpful metrics for reference on future projects.
Put your data to use
With previous project already being tracked in Format Projects, write that next proposal with detailed metrics to pull from. No more guesswork!
Make informed decisions
Track how your office is growing throughout the year and confidently plan for new hires and new projects.
Tailored to your operations
Get started for a single base fee that only increases as you add employees and expand your operations.
For when you've just left your full-time gig and are getting started on your own.
+$10 /month /employee
For when you begin to scale up your operations with additional employees.
We built Format Projects specifically for architects, engineers, and designers who operate project-based small businesses in the fields of design and construction.
Format Projects allows you to track projects and the growth of your business at more of an operational level rather than a day-to-day task-based level. That said, it also offers tools, such as hours tracking, which can be used in your day-to-day workflow.
Unlimited. Our plans do not limit how many projects you can have at any one time, so you don't have to worry about additional fees every time you start a new project.
If you have the Sole Proprietor plan, only one, but as soon as you start to hire employees, you can upgrade to the Small Office plan to add employee user accounts for an additional fee per month per user (up to a max of 20). This way, you only pay for additional users when you know your office is growing.
Yes! When you upgrade to the Small Office plan, you gain the ability to create roles within your office, which you can use to assign restrictions to certain users. Don't want your summer interns to have access to project billing? Only want Principals to be able to create new projects? No problem.
At the moment, only employee user accounts are available, though we are planning to implement client and consultant accounts with their own dashboards in the near future.
Absolutely. You will only ever be charged by the number of active employee user accounts you currently have set up for that month.
Format Projects was created by Format Architecture Office in Brooklyn, NY. We started our own architectural office several years ago and quickly realized we were guessing at many of the estimates we were putting into our new project proposals. We began developing Format Projects as a way to manage our projects and to help use the data we had obtained from completed projects to inform our operations.
