Avoid project cost increases and schedule slip
There’s no such thing as a project that goes perfectly to plan. Every day brings new challenges and schedules change constantly, which makes it extremely difficult to manage and allocate resources effectively. For companies that get resourcing wrong, there’s certainly a lot to lose. Project costs increase and schedules slip, eroding your margins and damaging your customer relationships. Staff satisfaction can drop – especially when some teams or talented individuals feel they are overstretched, while others believe they are under-utilized. To protect against these risks, professional services firms need a constant, real-time view of not only on-going project status, but also long-term resource usage.
