How you can streamline projects and arrange the perfect team for each assignment.
Even in the digital age, the professional services sector remains a business that really depends on people. To stay successful, businesses have to take a systematic approach to find experts and optimally allocate staff to projects. But how integrated is the project planning and talent management within your company? And what about essential tasks, such as time tracking or analysis of project profitability?
With itelligence, you enable your professional services company to succeed in the highly competitive project market. Together, we develop an end-to-end, transparent process, with which you can find the ideal staff for the project, allocate the staff effectively, and, above all, secure your margins. Moreover, you can finally concentrate on what really matters: the next project.
There is work to be done if professional services firms are to succeed in the ‘new normal.’ They will need to rethink current business models, incorporating digital services as a recurring ‘as-a-service’ revenue model to ensure a stable revenue stream. They will need the ability to truly understand the sentiments and needs of both employees and clients in order to develop effective strategies to address demand uncertainty, talent supply disruptions and workforce constraints.
The path forward will require a new approach to digital transformation –a service-based approach that replaces traditional large-scale projects with a series of smaller projects that provide a quicker, smarter way to respond to changes in technology, your industry and your business.
We can help you create a dynamic technology roadmap designed to help you pivot and adapt quickly.
More and more companies are outsourcing core tasks. Service providers benefit from this by gaining new contracts and growth opportunities.
But the already complex B2B services market is becoming even more demanding due to varying contract formats and long product cycles – not to mention the search for suitable specialists. In this landscape, only those who have complete control over all fundamental processes and automate as much as possible are able to survive.
Are you finding it increasingly difficult to maintain an overview of margins and revenue when undertaking a diverse range of projects simultaneously?
If any of these things sound familiar, it is time to rethink your processes. We are there to help you.
The SAP S/4HANA Cloud Partner Packaged solution for Professional Services comes with a defined scope for professional services, enabling you to manage projects more efficiently with accurate insights into project cost forecasting, monitoring and timeline reporting. Your business can make data-driven decisions with predictive analytics, improve performance with real-time financial management, and increase efficiency through better visibility into operations.
Standardize all processes from the order to the receipt of payment and consolidate them in a central system for all employees to use. Innovative professional services solutions and support from itelligence enable you to do this.
You ensure that time tracking is correctly and consistently managed due to simple and intuitive functionality, which is also available via a mobile app. You can analyze projects, from resource allocation to profitability, and ultimately bill for your services more quickly.
Compared to professional services, hardly any other industry is so reliant on finding specialist employees so quickly and being able to adapt them to projects. However, the shortage of highly-skilled professionals is showing no signs of improving in the near future. In the race to acquire top talent, speed and transparency are decisive factors.
itelligence experts support you with integrated software solutions to match the skills you need with what is available on the job market, and immediately prepare contracts.
We are certain that your company has the proper talent and vital knowledge. But do you know who excels in certain tasks? Or who is available? And which colleagues work best together?
If you decide all of this based on a gut feeling, there is every chance that your next project may run smoothly – but there is a real risk that it won’t. A consistent talent base that comprises all employees as well as skills, and supports effective staffing of projects, offers you certainty.
Specialists are currently in short supply. That is why it is important to take a systematic approach and nurture existing talent, including both new and experienced employees.
Strategic personal development becomes a reality with itelligence. This enables you to retain top performers and develop your pool of expertise in a target-driven manner.
Behind many professional services companies, there is an entire series of legally independent units, often based in different countries. And while company executives want to see the figures for entire departments and projects, legislation requires a breakdown by country. This makes accounting complex.
You may even find yourself issuing more internal invoices than customer bills. Structure and automation are in demand. Our global team helps you simplify international intercompany transactions.
For projects to run smoothly, every step needs to be integrated – from the first meeting with the customer to the project billing. Our broad SAP expertise ensures that all of your processes can seamlessly function together. This is the case throughout the world, wherever you need us.
