Connect financials with projects, customer service, and more
We focus on business impact.
Running a services-focused business requires continual evolution. No matter how long the turnaround of your projects, no matter how many people you have around to deliver services, services-focused firms need to face a constant stream of challenges to deliver on client needs. It might be that you’re fighting off increased competition, expanding your service offerings to meet client expectations, or working to empower a remote workforce.
Whatever the specifics, from the finance department to the project managers, consultants, and support staff, your business needs to understand and adapt to the challenges that manifest themselves. As a services business leader, you know that it’s no longer simply about delivery, it’s all about improvement. You also know there are some key areas to focus on because they are critical for on-going business growth and success. We help our customers achieve critical business area impact by implementing solutions that provide visibility across the organization, access to business data in one place, and thorough business intelligence and data analytics for informed decision-making.
We consult to help you drive growth.
Service companies list “declining bill rates” and “drop in profits” among their chief concerns. If these are your concerns as well, your goal should be to help everyone on your staff be as productive and satisfied as possible. Profitability depends on getting the right people assigned to the right project at the right time to keep customers happy and billable hours high.
Everything a business does relates back to profitability in one way or another. It’s the mother of all metrics and drives improvements in sales performance, customer retention, cost control, inventory optimization, order management, supply chain management, workforce productivity, and more.
Reviewing trends in profitability as well as in comparison to industry benchmarks can help your services company understand the big picture in terms of business health. Comprehensive dashboards and performance reporting provide visibility and the ability to drill-down into the details you need.
How do your results compare with others in your industry? Is profitability increasing over time? What are the internal trends? Do you have service areas that are lagging behind? Is there too much inventory on hand? Are there service areas that are growing significantly?
Asking “Why?” for each of these questions can help you create a plan that targets opportunities for improvement. With that plan, you can begin to work on improving those areas and meeting or exceeding benchmarks.
Solving business challenges for owners. controllers. operations. sales. IT.
Companies whose main job is to deliver services have leveraged enterprise resource planning products that connect financial management with projects, customer service, and more, for decades. Built to provide visibility, increase margins, and facilitate workflows, ERP can deliver. But not every solution was created equal—nor was every ERP partner.
Inexperienced firms often miss the mark, and with something as critical to your business as ERP, that’s something you simply can’t afford.
