Many businesses activities are carried out as projects. And when managing projects, you are constantly challenged by the expectations and needs of your customers. When you store your business data on a single, central platform, you can gain complete insight into your business activities. Your co-workers always have real-time project data at hand –from the moment a new project arises to invoicing and payment.
Your project organisation needs to stay in tune with customer demand. If your consultant sees a business opportunity with a client, you should be in an optimal position to seize it. This is easy when you have instant access to the history of your relationship with that customer, quotations and previous agreements. Because all data are centrally stored, authorised employees can access the most recent information at any time, from any location. You enjoy clear insight into your sales process, information is shared efficiently between departments, and you can offer your customers excellent service.
You need to know which employees are available for a new position, and you want to be able to select them according to their skills. In addition to good planning, you require accurate and effortless registration of billable hours, enabling project managers to pass on billable hours to accounts receivable. When your employees register their hours online, invoicing is faster and you gain immediate insight into project costs.
Good project planning requires staying within budget and earning a fair profit margin. When you have instant access to up-to-date information, you can observe escalations or deviations as they occur and take appropriate measures. And thanks to extensive standard reports and the opportunity to generate customisable reports, you can easily control planning.
Once work has been completed, you need to ensure reliable invoicing. Automated and structured billing processes help prevent uncertainties, errors and delays in payment. And by integrating the time registration process with invoicing, you speed up the entire billing process, from approval to payment.
