How can your organization benefit from this tool?
Manage your WIPs in real time
Timesheets integrated to the accounting system allow partners to review the status of their accounts and the time that has been accumulated as work in progress. This information is calculated in real time as staff members enter their hours.
Easily create invoices based on your clients’ preferences
Mix and match invoicing templates to meet your clients’ needs. Select specific templates, rates and invoicing based on the type of service. Distribute the amount against current mandates and WIP.
Manage the utilization of your resources
Budget your staff’s potential billable hours by month and then compare them with actuals to have a more accurate view of their performance levels.
Integrate business development activities
Get the intelligence you need about your current client base to find up-sell and cross-sell opportunities. Link email and marketing campaign activities to your accounts so that your partners are aware of the information that they are sent and the events that they have been invited to.
Review the profitability of your different services
With structured project accounting software, you can pull reports on the different services offered by your organization as well as by department or division. Slice and dice the information to analyze the health of your firm and discover new business opportunities.
Manage client groups and accounts
Gain business intelligence in regards to the connections of a particular client. By having the ability to create client groups, partners can review their entire portfolio and profitability or drilldown to a specific client.
Benefits for every user across your organization
Improve cash flows and reduce the number of write-offs. Time is billed faster, which reduces the risk of disputes regarding invoicing charges. Have better visibility into the profitability of your different services and operations with mandates that are automatically allocated to the appropriate accounts as soon as they are signed.
Make your invoicing process faster by reducing back-and-forth communications between the billing team and your partners. Managers can review and adjust time, totals and comments directly into the invoicing module, eliminating the need for your billing team to re-enter the information sent to them. Also, fewer adjustments are required since the timesheet is integrated to the financial system. As such, the mandates are available in the timesheet so that time can be coded to the appropriate account.
Mandate codes already exist within the timesheet application, so staff members don’t need to look around to figure out where they must enter their time. Contact and client information is centralized, which makes it easy for them to access and update the information, ensuring that everyone has access to up-to-date details.
Integrating your applications within the Microsoft platform reduces the time required for future updates and migrations as the information and tools are based on the same technology. Fewer customizations are required, facilitating upkeep and increasing reporting possibilities.
