In the lifecycle of every business, there comes a point where you need to take the leap and invest in business enabling technologies. But when is the right time?
The power of Project Service Automation comes from the fact that your Sales and Delivery team are working in the same system, using the same inputs for quoting as well as the ulimate management of the resulting project. Your sales team will be able to collaborate with your delivery team to build realistic costings for potential projects. They're working from real data, like resource costs, resource availability and effort required. No more guesswork. And no more finger pointing between sales and delivery as to who caused the project overruns.
Up until now, you've probably cobbled together a number of tools that get the job done ... for the time being. Timesheeting software, a project planning tool, a costing spreadsheet, a collaboration platform, a CRM plus some of the functionality of your accounting system. But, the problem is, they don't talk to each other. You're doing double (or triple) entry and that just causes errors and wastes time.
Say, you've got a team working on a major fixed-price contract. Margins are tight. You can't afford overruns. Project Service Automation gives you the real-time oversight to tightly manage projects like never before. At any time, you can see how much time you've 'burnt' on the project, how much you've invoiced and whether you're on track to make the margins you're expecting.
