Spider Project is an integrated tool that includes everything that is useful for advanced project, program and portfolio management. Spider Project Professional allows users to create any number of project portfolios, to use any approach to project prioritization, and to calculate portfolio schedules, taking into account project priorities, dependencies between activities of different projects, as well as all resource, supply, and financing limitations.
