Webinar Recording

The CFO’s Guide to Supporting and Enabling Effective Professional Services

Date: Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT There are no CPE Credits for this Solution Demonstration.
Many companies depend heavily on Professional Services (PS) to support the sale, implementation, and ongoing support of their product line(s). From the office of the CFO's perspective, this has significant impact to revenue, expenses, margins, and most of the company’s operations.

Recent research is clear that the majority of companies offering Professional Services are leaving substantial money on the table due to under-utilization of human capital and poor project performance.

This webinar will provide a helpful and actionable guide for finance leaders and their organizations to better understand the drivers of PS performance, best practices in execution, and specifics of how they can support and enable the PS team’s mission.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Identify key economic drivers of PS businesses
Recognize expenses associated with PS businesses and how to address/minimize them
Identify measures and metrics to use when measuring, reporting on and understanding PS businesses
