Strengthen Contract Experiences and Optimize
Growth Through Project Service Automation
Project Service Automation (PSA) is an Extension of Dynamics 365
Designed to Address the Following Top Five Challenges
Sales cycles require more efficiency than ever and require a great deal of customer interaction when developing proposals or quotes for customers demanding an array of services.
Services, Sourcing & Vendor Selection Process
Organizations have challenges managing the selection process for RFP’s, Statements of Work, Proposals, and Quotes.
The transition from quoted work agreements to a workable timeline and execution strategy is often a disjointed process. This requires a much better conduit from quote to execution in order to progress efficiently.
Resource Availability & Allocations
Matching resource specific elements of the project to people with the proper skill sets and availability increases the utilization/efficiencies of resources.
Project Management & Costs
Lack of visibility to the financial performance (e.g. profitability) of a project could lead to overspending, budgeting issues, and even project setbacks. Visibility to costs (e.g. labor and expense), revenue, and tasks status allows for the appropriate insight into the performance of a project and improved service delivery.
