    Nice Articla Hemant – great cost saving opportunities with both Housatonic and Moos project viewer!
    We’ve been using Seavus Project Viewer for years now, (also available as an online app) and it really allows bigger control for team members – it really beats saving project plans as PDF and sharing it with the team if you know what i mean 🙂
