Why do project-based businesses need an integrated platform?

Project-based businesses like yours have distinct needs. You want to understand which projects to pursue and how much to charge, manage your resources efficiently, ensure your teams are optimally utilized, monitor project progress and cost, and maintain a healthy cashflow by billing accurately and getting paid on time.

Now, you could be using a custom, homegrown ERP solution or disparate systems for project management, time tracking, invoicing, resource planning, business intelligence and collaboration, or even spreadsheets to manage these functions. In an IT environment filled with multiple systems, your data is residing in multiple tools, which are not connected, leading to a lack of a consolidated view of projects.

An integrated platform addresses these challenges by bringing together all your functions – project management, resource management, billing and invoicing, human capital management and time recording. Connecting these functions gives you an extra layer of visibility to help you make decisions based on real-time information from across the project life-cycle.
