Project PlannerAerospace Company

I have some folks from another large company coming to our office next week to see how we are using Milestones Professional to create the cross-project links report. The report has been well-received internally here at Alliant Energy. Am also giving a demo on the same topic at our Madison chapter of MPUG (Microsoft Project Users Group) in the near future. So, you might be getting more business from others in this area.
