Ensuring a Seamless Project from Start to Completion

Dynamics CRM Project Service Automation

Once the customer has signed the contract, it is imperative to every project team, that everything runs seamlessly from the start, through to completion.

If problems start to creep in from resource overview and external contractor management, through to planning and billing errors, then all the progress made with securing the future client relationship is under threat – as is profitability.

Project Service Automation allows you to run your project-based business more productively by bringing people, processes, and automation technology together, through a unified experience. This starts before the contract is won, by allowing you to provide a comprehensive costing that is both competitive and profitable.

After that, resource management, team collaboration and tracking time and expenses become key components in the process. Once Dynamics 365 is then plugged into Power BI to offer deep and meaningful insights, but in a clear and visual way, the business benefits become really transparent.
