Improve Project Planning and Management with Armanino’s New Offering
Posted by Armanino Dynamics Team
Productivity is more than a buzzword. It’s about enabling your employees to do more in less time, essentially improving project margins and your bottom line. If you’re not investing in your firm’s future productivity, you’re not building a plan for growth.
Investing in productivity starts with having the right tools for project and resource (staff) tracking. A task that becomes cumbersome when you’re taking on bigger and larger projects but still trying (and failing) to manage them in spreadsheets and Word docs. Armanino has designed a solution to help improve project planning and management – and you may be surprised by just how easy it is.
Our recently released and easy-to-use system not only tracks projects, it also provides visibility into project margins. And, because our solution enables employees to set up a project in a matter of minutes, not days, we offer the ability to be more productive immediately. As a matter of fact, in less than five minutes your team can set up and start tracking time to their first project.
Our solution is also a great tool for managing your resources. Project Managers can easily view all resources working on a project along with their forecasted and actual hours. By having visibility across your project, you can determine which resources are staying within forecast and better manage to your project scope.
Here’s a quick look into how you can use our new Project and Time Tracking solution to help improve your project margins, better manage your resources and increase the accuracy of your billings:
Microsoft Outlook Integration – Users can easily track project hours and details directly within their Outlook calendars and lookup contacts in CRM without changing systems.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Integration – Project and Time Tracking is completely integrated into Microsoft Dynamics CRM, providing quick access to Project Forecasts and Reporting Views.
List of Active Projects – Project Managers can easily view all Active Projects and generate reports. Project details can be drilled into effortlessly and edited as needed.
Project Details – Project Managers can keep a watchful eye on budget forecasts vs. budget actuals to ensure projects stay within scope.
If you’re still using manual processes and tools to track projects and billings, consider the time savings Armanino’s Project Planning and Time Tracking solution offers by integrating with Outlook and CRM.
