The Problem: Generating proposals consumes a large number of unbilllable hours of resources and consultants. While critical to winning new business, the current approach often results in wasted hours and potentially inaccurate estimates. Most consultants and project managers use their own spreadsheets, which have no automated way to pull in project history and rely on the specific experience of the consultant building the spreadsheet. Once a project begins, all the information in the spreadsheet must be manually entered into the system in order to track the project time and expenses.
Our Solution: A next generation proposal tool that is as easy to use as a spreadsheet, is informed by previous work, and automatically sends the information from the estimate to the project management and accounting system.
Key Benefit: Reduced un-billable hours, reduced risk of underbid proposals, improved overall project performance
Project & Task Management
The Problem: Project management tools are highly under-utilized in this industry, despite their proven value to increasing project performance and company profitability. When used, they are often not fully utilized and not deeply tied to other systems. Most of the scientists and engineers [on staff] have little formal project management training and often underestimate the value of these tools.
Our Solution: A deeply integrated project management platform that is easy to use and highly flexible to the unique workflows of your industry. The system makes it easy to set up and modify projects. It also easily connects other related information including documents, time + expenses and collaboration.
Key Benefit: Improved project management tools and methodologies result in higher utilization, project performance and project profitability
The Problem: Scheduling and managing people (and equipment) can be a difficult task. Trying to maximize your team’s utilization is difficult to do with with all expertise requirements, time off and more. And things ALWAYS change. Spreadsheets, shared calendars, white boards and email are the mainstay of keeping your operation running smoothly.
Our Solution: An easy-to-use and flexible scheduling and resource management system that flexes to your needs.
Key Benefit: Improved utilization, easier scheduling.
Time & Expense Tracking
The Problem: Tracking time and expenses is an administrative burden that no one enjoys doing. This lack of enthusiasm results in inaccuracies, more administrative headaches trying to track down missing information and in many cases billing mistakes.
Our Solution: A system that allows the user to easily enter time and expenses the way that works best for them.
Key Benefit: Reduced administrative burden, more accurate time and expenses and generally happier employees.
The Problem: Clients often demand custom invoices from technical consulting firms. Most systems do not easily allow for customization (and require the use of other tools (e.g. excel) to generate the invoices. This results in administrative overhead, a frustrated accounting team and potentially an increase in days sales outstanding (DSO).
Our Solution: A system that provides the ability to pull in the level of detail, is easy to edit and highly customizable. Firms can create templates for each client to manage the format of each clients invoice.
Key Benefit: Reduced administrative burden, happy office managers/accounting and reduced time to collect receivables.
The Problem: The basic approach to document management hasn’t changed in 40 years (aside from adding accessibility via the cloud & mobile). Folders are the cornerstone for organizing documents and version control is managed through ‘system’ naming conventions (e.g. document_v1.pdf, document_v2.pdf). But folders are mutually exclusive and naming conventions are easily (and often accidentally) not adhered to. Users often rely on search to find their information. Most project management solutions perpetuate these issues rather than try and solve them. As a result, information is difficult to find and difficult to manage.
Our Solution: A system that allows your team to manage and share documents in line with how your business operates and simplifies revision control.
Key Benefit: Eliminate wasted time looking for the information you need and eliminate difficult to manage server storage.
Mobile & Field
The Problem: Consultants spend a considerable amount of time in the field. As a result, much of the administrative work they do requires them to enter information in a timely manner (data collection, time and expenses) in order for it to be accurate.
Our Solution: A mobile solution that brings together the calendar, tasks, time and expense entry, project tracking features and data collection in one place.
Key Benefit: Increase productivity and improved accuracy and timeliness of data entry. Reduced administrative burden and happier consultant.
Contact Management & Sales
The Problem: Most technical consulting firms find new business through referrals and word of mouth. Few have formal sales tracking tools or processes in place for managing these referrals, lengthening the sales cycle and potentially risking losing business. Contacts are rarely managed across the organization, so it is often difficult to know who to contact at a client for a specific project, for example. And when contact information changes others in the organization might not get updated.
Our Solution: A system that allows firms to establish, track and manage their sales process in the context of the other work they do. A centralized contact management system that connects external stakeholders with the prospects, clients and projects they are associated with.
Key Benefit: Improved productivity and increased sales.
The Problem: Most firms use a variety of tools to manage their business and don’t want to be locked in to one specific piece of software. They also wants those systems to ‘talk’ to one another, to avoid double entry of information and increased administrative burden. The major systems used in firms today do not easily integrate (if at all).
Our Solution: A system that easily integrates with other software most often used by technical consulting firms.
Key Benefit: Clients are afforded the flexibility to choose the system that best meets their needs without increasing their administrative burden.
The Problem: Most accounting teams of growing consulting firms are forced to perform A LOT of manual reporting. Even integrated accounting systems do not deliver the flexibility or ease of use modern accounting teams demand. Plus, you rely on the consultants and program managers to get the data needed into the system, which can often be difficult with these older, hard to use systems.
Our Solution: A truly flexible reporting system that makes it easy to get the reports the leadership team needs to manage the business. Plus, you get more real time information because it is much easier for your team to use.
Key Benefit: Makes your accounting team’s job easier and gives them time back.
