Moving to a Unified Project Solution

How to approach your journey to a more productive project enterprise.

Moving to a Unified Project Solution

Moving to a unified project solution is not an all-or-nothing proposition. That is why we suggest approaching it in two steps that can be accomplished in phases.

Your first step toward a unified project solution is bringing project financials into your ERP. Many companies use Excel or another cost management system to run their project financials and get a thorough understanding of their portfolio budgets, forecasts, and earned value analysis. Bringing that process inside your ERP eliminates errors and delays in reporting. Cost control becomes more efficient and effective. Getting started with this first step is the most important.

The second step in your journey to a unified project solution is bringing project operations (planning) inside the ERP as well. This final step unifies everything so it all works seamlessly together in real time. For example, changes made to the project schedule are automatically reflected in procurement, the payment plan, EAC, and cashflow projections.

ADEACA makes it easy to get started by providing you with a comprehensive project financial solution to achieve the first step. This first step consolidates project accounting and cost control processes, laying the foundation for eventually integrating project operations.

The second step of our vision we know is somewhat controversial to many in certain industries because of long traditions and reliance on a preferred planning tool, such as Oracle Primavera or Microsoft Project. However, while Primavera (as well as Microsoft Project) is a great tool for planning, it’s lack of integration and process enforcement does nothing for project financials or top leadership who need to understand the operational and financial sides of the business simultaneously.

As ERP technology progresses, the next big productivity gain for project industries is the ERP expanding its domain over all aspects of projects and morphing into what we call a Unified Project Solution. This will bring the industry on par with 90% of all other industries regarding the use of enterprise wide systems.

Our vision is to fully integrate project financials and operations into the ERP and thereby provide the best solution for your company overall. To that end, ADEACA provides practical solutions to help you move closer to a unified project solution:

  • ADEACA ONE utilizes project management best practices so your managers will be familiar with the tools included and easily adopt the system. You will achieve practices on par with or superior to Oracle Primavera or Microsoft Project.
  • ADEACA ONE also allows you to easily export into Primavera or Microsoft Project format so you can interchange your data with customers and partners without difficulty.
As a result, the journey to a unified project solution does not have to be as long or difficult as you may imagine.
