Why your service organization should consider NetSuite SRP for growth and profitability
Enterprises in the service industry often struggle to remain competitive due to lack of insights and transparency into their business processes. Array of disparate systems and tools for project management, time tracking, invoicing, resource planning, and business intelligence hold such organizations back as they’re unable to gain actionable insights that may help them make well-informed decisions.
Since they’re using multiple disparate systems, IT teams have to spend a lot of time in managing such systems while enterprises end up paying huge sums in terms of licensing and maintenance. In order to succeed and stay competitive, organizations that are delivering billable work need a solution that combines work automation, project management, resource management, time tracking, finance & billing, team collaboration, and reporting, offering unified project delivery data.
Since the dollars involved in professional service delivery grow with headcount, the financial benefits of a well-implemented PSA (Professional Service Automation) solution are enormous. PSA solutions empower you with the tools necessary to track key performance indicators for your business. Furthermore, they accumulate insights in a way that can help you allocate resources intelligently to increase profitability and reduce costs.
According to recent research, investing around $200,000 in implementation and PSA software license costs, in five years, professional service firms can expect an estimate of nearly $23 million in increased revenue and reduced costs.
Among some of the available options, NetSuite Services Resource Planning (SRP) solution is considered as the most preferable choice since it offers everything that ITES or Technology companies need to flourish. With NetSuite SRP, organizations gain complete visibility into and control over the entire business. From identification of new opportunities to project delivery, invoicing and revenue recognition, NetSuite SRP has everything that a services business needs.
