We are a small new agency and are looking for project management software. We are based at different locations so ideally we want something on the internet which both of us can access. Translation 3000 sounds fantastic but seems to be aimed at freelancers. Project Open also looks good and is free. Can anyone advise?

They're from AIT (TO3000) and it's aimed at agencies.
If it is as good as TO3000, it should suit all your needs

JORG - from Infospeed Oct 3, 2006

We have been using JORG, a new software available from Infospeed. As an agency, we have found it incredibly useful. It is simple to use and easy to understand. We have been using it since February 2006 and have seen a marked increase in our admin efficiency e.g. invoices created at the click of a button, on top of clearer project management for the PMs.

I have been a fairly happy user of Translation Office for more than 2 years, but have missed a couple of features, for instance, I make several invoices at once and now I have to make a list of completed jobs on paper and then enter the invoice section of TO3000 and make the invoices. There's no way to see completed uninvoiced jobs in version 7. Now version 8 has been released and has - I think - solved this problem... but created an even worse one for me. I had the software and the database installed on a network drive because I use it from two different locations... but the new version has removed all network support.
If you don't have a network and DON'T need to convert from version 7, then TO3000 is proably a great option. But if you need to convert your version 7 data, there are plenty more nightmares in store. I fear I shall be looking for an alternative.
