Breakdown of core features
Planning and budgeting
Rodeo lets project managers create fast and accurate budgets with a simplified interface. When users build a new project in Rodeo, they receive a prompt to start with the budget to connect all the steps of the project cycle. Additionally, the platform allows users to save setup time by copying the framework from another project. Users can copy only specific aspects of another project such as team, budget, phases, activities, tasks, and assignees, or copy the entire project.
With Rodeo’s user-friendly time cards, anyone in the team can log their time spent on each task to make sure projects stay on schedule. Using this feature improves the understanding of the projects’ progress, timelines, and profitability.
Estimating and invoicing
Users can create and send estimates or invoices to clients straight from the platform. Rodeo facilitates the customization of estimates and invoices with the company logo and details using a pre-built template. Alternatively, users can upload their own branded design. Rodeo supports the automation of invoicing processes by creating recurring invoices.
Rodeo enables project managers to view team productivity and detect issues through its intuitive reporting feature. Users can also create reports based on closed projects to deliver detailed insights and identify gaps that need improvement.
