Consulting firms today need to operate more efficiently than ever to remain competitive.
At the same time these firms are facing new challenges as they become
more virtual and dynamic in nature. Increasingly, employees are scattered
across offices or
working on a contract basis, and the size of these organizations often
fluctuates dramatically with
the business cycle.

And our solution's robust resource management and reporting functionality give managers real-time access to the key analytical metrics information needed to run their organization.
