With more than 6 million users, of which two-thirds listed in the Fortune 500 companies book, Seavus Project Viewer™, the leading viewer for Microsoft® Project Plans (.mpp files), has been improving project teams performance worldwide for more than 15 years.
Seavus Project Viewer™ allows users to open and read .MPP files without the need to have Microsoft® Project installed on your environment for just a fraction of a Project license price.
The solution is intended for all project team members, managers, and other employees on corporate level who need to open and view project plans in the .MPP file format.
By limiting MS® Project licenses to planning personnel only, and providing all other employees with a project plan viewer, companies not only succeed in improving team coordination and performance, but they also save considerable amounts of financial resources and manage to optimize software costs on an enterprise level.

Accurate Project View
If you can see it in Microsoft® Project, you can see it in Seavus Project Viewer™ is what users say. The views available in the application are the same as the views available in Microsoft® Project and they provide an in-depth display of project information to all project stakeholders. Seavus Project Viewer™ supports all native views such as Gantt Chart, Network Diagram, Task Sheet, Task Usage, Relationship diagram, Resource Graph, Resource Sheet, Resource Usage, and several others.
Graphical Reports and Dashboards
The visual reports and dashboard features available in the application allow users to get a complete dynamic summary of the project plan through the creation of reports. Most of the predefined Microsoft® Project reports are supported along with a special formatting and descriptive overview of the project, project tasks, resources, and assignments. The graphical reports allow project stakeholders to read their upcoming tasks, find information about critical tasks, work, different costs and analyze the project progress to determine whether they are aligned with the project budget and timeline.
Seavus Project Viewer™ also features special add-ins and integrated functionality to better facilitate project collaboration and information exchange between project managers and project participants.
The Task Update feature is a special feature that allows project team members to easily collaborate with project managers by providing them with up-to-date information regarding the project task status they are working on, in the form of updated proposal. On the other hand, project managers can keep track of all of the assignments that are finished on time, manage the feedback from employees, and keep the project plan up to date.
The Skype for Business (previously known as Lync) also supports the project members in communication with each other while viewing the project plan.
