Professional Services Need LeanAs a project-based industry, all professional services companies suffer from massive amounts of waste due to inefficiencies that arise from siloed operations, systems and data. Disconnected processes and poor visibility into project performance results in inflated costs with unnecessarily large buffers and slack to account for these inherent inefficiencies.
In today’s marketplace, professional services firms have to deal with any number of pressures, including multiple regulations and policies, tighter budgets and faster timelines. To be competitive and remain profitable in this global business environment, you must monitor key performance drivers, deploy innovative business models and continually improve your service offerings.
Companies in the professional services sector need comprehensive lean professional services automation software that integrates all relevant processes within the organization, including project control, purchasing, human resources and finance as well as billable hours and budget administration.
Your Business is Projects
Traditional manufacturing boosted productivity tremendously by adopting lean and MRPII together in the early 1990s. These changes broke down the organizational silos and transformed the industry. We can apply this same model to professional services, using a fully integrated ERP to facilitate a lean transformation in your organization.
By adopting a lean approach, you can:
- Remove Inefficiencies - Align your organization, work faster and respond to changes more effectively.
- Improve Decision Making - Increase visibility to identify and react to risks early before they manifest into bigger problems.
- Increase Accountability - Gain control over your processes, stay in compliance, and learn as an organization.
