Bid on more projects
Better pipeline management means more opportunities to bid. Take advantage of this by creating and sending proposals to the best prospects more quickly.

Enhance client satisfaction
Project managers can assemble more qualified project teams by searching the skills and experience database for desired qualifications. By integrating with the sales pipeline in Opportunities, this process can begin before a deal is even closed.

Employees can communicate preferences on work type, location, and career development goals, so managers can more easily match employees with their preferred projects and identify training and development needs.

Project management

Collaborate on projects for on-time, on-budget delivery. Real-time collaboration in Projects lets teams maintain current and accurate project status, so managers can proactively identify and resolve issues that threaten the success of an engagement.

Deliver projects on time and within budget
Team members can update project status from any computer with a browser and Web connection, so the project plan provides an accurate snapshot at any given moment. Managers can view project status through Gantt charts or use task completion reports to identify and drill down to tasks that might be at risk. The result is an improved project completion record, more satisfied clients, and reduced non-billable work.

Increase client involvement
Deepen your relationship with clients by giving them access to project status reports. Gantt charts, exceptions reports, and project status summaries give clients information they need to remain involved and comfortable with project progress.

This enables project teams to collaborate online, track time to specific projects and tasks, and integrate project planning with resource allocation.
