Project Business Automation Provides What You Need Out-of-the-Box

Avoid costly customizations and lengthy professional services engagements with Microsoft partners.

PBA is built from the ground up to manage and control your business processes as a project-driven company.

Implementation partners and other solutions cannot provide this comprehensive business system. However, they will promise that they can with enough time and resources to modify Dynamics for your business. They may also encourage you to implement Dynamics in “phases” and save the project requirements for later. More often than not, they never get to those phases.

As a result, you are left with a glorified accounting system, not a project business system.

PBA is the only comprehensive business system built for project-based companies using Dynamics 365.

PBA is a process-first business system, designed to support project-based business processes from start to finish. Everything is built form the ground up to be integrated and support the next step in the project lifecycle.

Solve Your Business Problems

"My ERP does not support our project-based processes."

ERPs are financial systems originally built for discrete manufacturers and distribution companies. Projects are an after-thought for most ERP vendors.

"We use spreadsheets everywhere in our processes."

You use spreadsheets because you don’t have your data in one place and/or you don’t have a system that can help you analyze it.

"Our project estimates are not accurate, consistent, or timely."

Your quotes don't represent what is actually required for a project. As a result, you lose deals when you over-estimate and lose money when you under-estimate.

"We don't have a good way to track costs once the project starts."

You cannot track the costs of operations because they are not directly tied to your financial system.

Only Project Business Automation can help you solve all of these problems and more with Dynamics 365.
