A recovering economy and increase in competition means that firms have to be smarter about how they do business. This includes communicating with clients to ensure needs are met on both sides, tracking project budgets, and properly allocating resources so you deliver the best possible results even when changes occur. Deltek’s financial engine automates and streamlines time-consuming information gathering and data entry so you can keep projects on budget and on time.
Data replication from static spreadsheets and documents not only wastes time, but it erodes the integrity of information that should ensure project success. By implementing a common management approach to scope, schedules, resources, costs, risks, quality, and communications, you can bolster project profitability. Start to centralise and edit data real-time to effectively plan and manage projects.
With an increase in competition and limited time to devote solely to business development, the responsibility of finding, tracking and winning opportunities often falls on many shoulders. As a result, disjointed capture processes and overlapping data can become an issue. Deltek resolves these problems with top-tier integrated CRM, so you can increase your win rate and make a lasting impact on your Consulting Engineering firm.
In the Consulting Engineering industry, talent is at a premium. Increasing industry optimism and decreasing unemployment rates have caused employees to feel more secure in seeking new opportunities. As a result, businesses now need an intuitive, comprehensive way to find, track, hire and retain the best employees.
In an industry as competitive as consulting engineering, visibility into business processes is crucial to firm success. You should be able to see accurate information how and when you need it, so you’re able to make the best decisions on behalf of your business.
