Protemos Overview

What is Protemos?

Protemos is a business management solution for agencies and freelancers within the translation industry. The solution can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud and allows users to manage projects, deadlines, files, documents, invoices, payments, finances, and more from one platform. Agencies can use Protemos to manage their database of clients and translators, manage rates, and assign jobs, whilst freelancers can view their orders, create and send invoices, and track payments.

Within Protemos, agencies can manage their clients within one central database and view details on job history, payments, rates, and more. Projects can be setup and assigned to translators, and users are able to define a deadline date for each project. The Protemos system also includes a vendor database and vendor self service portal so that vendors can manage their jobs and define costs. Invoices can be generated within the system and both freelancers and vendors can view payment statuses in real time. Protemos facilitates report generation so that users can gain insight into metrics such as income, profit, productivity, and more.

Nice accounting tool for freelancers

Protemos is great to accommodate freelancing work. Simple, efficient, easy to use. It is doing what we need. They are becoming larger now, to accommodate agencies. Let's hope they don't become too large for freelancers...

Easy and intuitive process of accounting on translation projects

Pros

It's powerful enough to cover all our accounting needs, yet is simple and intuitive both for managers and freelancers. The system is constantly improved and development team is very sensitive to our custom needs.

Cons

We still lack some functionality - some routine processes could be further automated, however the system is constantly improved and developers do listen to our queries.

Protemos is great to accommodate freelancing work. Simple, efficient, easy to use. It is doing what we need. They are becoming larger now, to accommodate agencies. Let's hope they don't become too large for freelancers...

Pros

Easy to navigate, stable data handling, multiple useful options for small businesses dealing with international clients (currencies, etc.), basic project management tool, clear invoice list with what's coming at term what is overdue, clear project list, easy to manage.

Cons

The way the client's contact info is displayed, it's not following the north american setting I am use to. There is no option to end payment fees in the payment received. The reports need more work as well, to be able to get a detailed report for tax income purpose. The report doesn't allow to see notes or comments, which is where we must enter payment fees at this time. Their invoice is not really configurable. The filters by date doesn't work very well when we want to see the money coming in within the next weeks, for instance. The contact info addition in a cient's file is also a bit awkward, we often need to reenter the contact of an individual, even though it already exist as main contact (no drop down for existing name).

Pros

I like most about Protemos, that it is free for our suppliers, so we can work with as many people as we need to and do not need to buy licenses.
I also like a lot, that it is very user-friendly and intuitive. Furthermore, it is really easy and quick to implement it and set it up.

Cons

I would like the integration with Smartcat to be deeper.
Another thing is, that you have to enter the primary user and cannot select him as contact person for the projects and therefore need to enter the same person again as contact person.

Pros

- the excellent communicative skills of the contact persons at Protemos.
- the intuitive way Protemos is shaped.
- onboarding new staff is very easy, as Protemos isn't hard to learn to use, while at the same time the software is extended enough for our business.
- we don't get all kinds of heavy stuff we would never use.
- the responsiveness when it comes to needs we have expressed to the Protemos-team (and the speed they implemented the features to fulfill those needs).

Cons

- in the beginning, when we started to work with Protemos (2017), there were some features we didn't have, which we did need.

better workflow management, improved payment cycle, eye-bird view of my business

Pros

Protemos is undoubtedly the most user-friendly Translation Management System (TMS) on the market today. Not only does it cater the needs of small or mid-size LSPs, it is also perfectly suitable for freelance translators who are in need of a capable TMS for project management and accounting. The development cycle of the platform is fast and the Customer Support team is super responsive. Protemos has become a must-have tool in my from-quote-to-invoice workflow. Highly recommended!

Cons

I hope the platform would be localized into French. Also, I wish for a more flexible template customization.
