How do companies succeed in increasing their profits? One option is to improve productivity. In project work in particular, this depends on the management style of the supervisor. We will tell you how to do it anyway in this blog post.
According to a recent study, only 26% of all IT projects are completed on time. 28% are stopped prematurely and 46% exceed planned costs, fail to meet the go-live date, or never achieve the required level of functionality. Studies reveal that most German companies predominantly work manually on projects and still rely on Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook. Only 13% of the solutions implemented run in the cloud.
The situation becomes difficult when several solutions are worked on simultaneously, a common database is not available and every available resource has to be fought over. Lack of flexibility, poor communication in virtual teams and constantly changing priorities also lead to problems - regardless of the size and complexity of the projects. The good news is that there is a solution for every problem!
Many large companies have recognized that project success can only be guaranteed with an efficient, end-to-end solution. Key requirements include ease of use, reliability and seamless integration into the existing system environment. Aspects that Microsoft addresses with Project Operations.
For this purpose, Microsoft connects the two disciplines Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Companies are therefore in a position to map all project-oriented business processes in just one software package. This leads to
• higher productivity
• better resource planning and
• more transparency in all project areas.
With cost accounting and real-time project status, budget utilization is always in view and users can react quickly and effectively to changes.
Project Operations is the first end-to-end project management solution that integrates all processes end-to-end and is seamlessly integrated with CRM and ERP applications for this purpose. The solution is cross-departmental, so sales employees, project managers, accountants and the entire C-level can work with it.
