New Release: Streamline Your Workflow with Vantagepoint
Streamlined workflows and enhanced visualizations are just two of the exciting ways the latest version of Vantagepoint will improve your business. The latest release includes numerous new features and enhancements that will make it easier for every member of your company to deliver projects.
Over the next several weeks, we’re going to take a closer look at several of the new features and enhancements, but to give you a glimpse into what’s new with Vantagepoint, here are the highlights:
Improve Project Management with Combined Opportunities and Projects
Vantagepoint delivers a single place to manage your opportunities/project pursuits and your active projects or engagements. With one hub for projects and pursuits, you can consolidate project information in one place to facilitate the creation, management and delivery of projects from initial conversation through project completion. Combining projects and opportunities simplifies project administration, eliminates duplicate records, allows project managers to easily monitor project performance and delivers complete visibility into the entire project in one place.
Increase Visibility into Your Business with Improved Dashboards
Your data is only valuable if it can be turned into business intelligence and actionable insight. With recent enhancements to the Vantagepoint dashboards, you can do just that. Vantagepoint dashboards now allow you to get more insight with new chart dashparts, conditional formatting and better ways to group, sort and filter your information. And, as a reminder, you can create multiple dashboards for users so they are configured to meet their specific needs, giving them instant access to critical client and project information. Vantagepoint dashboard enhancements give you more flexibility to create the view you need to effectively manage your business.
Create Impressive Proposals with New Proposal Creator
In a competitive market, your teams need to quickly develop impressive proposals to position your company to win and you can do just that with the new Vantagepoint proposal builder. The new visual proposal builder allows you to drag and drop images, pull project descriptions directly from project records, quickly create resumes and much more. Stay true to your brand with reusable templates, boilerplates and master elements. With the proposal builder, your teams can quickly and easily create the right proposal to win the project or engagement.
Streamline Billing and Invoicing with Accounting Process Improvements
One of the key tenets of Vantagepoint is to improve the user experience and billing and invoicing is no exception. With the recent release, there are numerous enhancements to the billing and invoicing process that will save time for accounting teams and shorten overall time from draft to final invoice. The Projects hub is the single place for all project details and now allows project managers to review and approve draft invoices directly from their project. Accounting teams have more information available directly from interactive billing, including billing fee information directly in interactive billing. Financial managers can also more easily analyze unbilled transactions and can easily email final invoices to multiple contacts. These are just a few of the enhancements that will improve cash flow for your business.
These are just a few of the key highlights for this release. You can find these enhancements and more in the Vantagepoint Release Notes available in the Deltek Support Center. Check back over the next few weeks to get a closer look at some of these exciting features from our product management team.
