Why CFOs are Putting Services and Finance on One System with FinancialForce PSA

Date: Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT There are no CPE Credits for this Solution Demonstration.
Services businesses are frequently characterized by a lack of real-time visibility into project pipelines, profit margins, expenses and billing. With less than optimized people, process and technology combinations, simple questions around margins, staff utilization, and forecasting can be difficult if not impossible to answer quickly and accurately. This leaves finance organizations in a real bind and unable to deliver information and results as we are accustomed.

Join this event featuring the SVP of Finance at Avid, Tony Callini, as he discusses how Avid raised the bar on efficiencies by putting his services and finance teams onto a cloud-based PSA solution integrated with Salesforce CRM. See how service and finance teams are better able to meet goals, make smarter decisions and increase profits when working in the same system and collaborating in real-time.

In this event you will learn:

  • The importance of timely, relevant and accurate data quality for professional service management decisions
  • The impact of establishing and regularly monitoring key performance metrics such as utilization and realization
  • The role of finance in project management and how FinancialForce PSA captures and automates the processes
