Project is available in a standard as well as a professional version. The professional version includes extra features, such as tools for team collaboration and access to Microsoft's Project Server. Both versions allow users to keep track of every aspect of a variety of project types, including the ability to share and communicate between programs, trace task paths, and create graphical reports.
