The Promys PM module is easy to use, powerful and allows Project Managers to plan, run and learn from their Projects more consistently and effectively.
TORONTO, ON, March 29, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Promys, a leader in PSA business software for technology solution providers, announced their release of easy to use and powerful Project Management functionality that provides PM's with real-time visibility into project cost against budget performance, provides early warnings for project over-runs, efficiently manages resources and skill sets and cycles implementation lessons learned back into the quoting process.
"Many of our customers are pretty sophisticated when it comes to their Project Management processes, but a good portion of them have also struggled with the complexity of some of the stand alone Project Management solutions in the market. Using a stand alone PM solution also makes it difficult to compare quoted estimates with mid-project actuals, coordinate procurement with service delivery and easily cycle implementation lessons learned back into the quoting process," said David Donnelly, VP of Product Development for Promys.
Promys Addressed Three Key Customer Challenges with our new Project Management Functionalty:
1) Make it easy to use: PM's can quickly and easily create project estimates and import those estimates directly into Quotes. Once the order is won the project inherits those estimates as the initial project budget for solution delivery. PM's can designate project tasks requiring specific skill sets and labor rates (Tech level 1, Tech level 2). Once the project start date is set, Promys even has the capability to auto-assign resources based on skill sets and availability.
2) Provide the key functionality of a stand alone PM solution, without the complexity: Promys worked very closely with our customer Project Managers to confirm the high value Project Management functionality that would make their lives easier, without making it complex and hard to use. The Promys PM module has Ganting (changes to the Gant automatically update the Project Schedule), skill set tracking, easy time & expense entry, milestone billing, user defined escalations and provides real-time visibility into project cost against budget performance.
3) Link the overall PSA business processes to the PM module: For most technology solution providers Project Management is one part of an overall business process (Sales, Procurement, PM, Invoicing) not a stand alone department . So having stand alone PM software, disconnected from the rest of their business process, doesn't make much sense. In Promys the Quoted labor estimates automatically tie back to Project actuals (including pre-sales hours). This gives PM's real-time cost against budget visibility and improves future labor estimating accuracy. PM's see real-time Product/Equipment delivery status in order to coordinate professional services delivery dates. Overall project profitability including hardware/software/product and professional services can be calculated with the push of a button. All related business processes are linked to Project Management activities, because it's all part of the same Promys solution and end to end business process.
John Breakey, Promys PSA founder and former CEO of Unis Lumin, a Cisco gold Partner adds, "We re-wrote Promys PSA from scratch over the last 3 years because we knew putting 'lipstick on the pig' wasn't going to allow us to take our customers to the next level. These enhancements to the Promys Project Management module make it much more user friendly and powerful, so that PM's will actually use it, and ties Project Management back to the rest of the company business processes, which allows Promys customers to run their businesses in a more coordinated way. That's another reason why Promys is currently one of the best reviewed PSA software solutions in the industry."
