Empower Your Remote Workforce with Vantagepoint
As the traditional office shifts to a more remote, mobile and virtual environment, companies are becoming more agile at providing the right tools and resources to meet the rapidly changing demands. With the right tools, your teams can improve productivity and increase collaboration regardless of physical location. Whether you are new to Vantagepoint or have been part of the Deltek family for a long time, here are a few tips and reminders to help empower your remote workforce with Vantagepoint.
MOVE YOUR BUSINESS TO THE CLOUD
As businesses have more remote workers than ever, teams need to have all the tools and systems available to deliver projects from anywhere. If teams can’t get connected or project details aren’t accessible, projects get delayed, deadlines are missed or invoices go unpaid and companies can’t afford those disruptions. By moving to the Deltek Cloud, your company can enable mission-critical business processes from any location. With increased security, flexibility, scalability and support, your business can focus on what you do best - deliver exceptional projects. If you aren’t running your business in the cloud, now is the time to make the move.
COLLABORATION IS KEY
With project teams dispersed, it is critical that teams can continue to collaborate on projects regardless of their physical location. Knowing which projects to work on, what tasks need completed, when projects are due and other project intricacies, teams need to be able to work together seamlessly and feel confident that they are working from the same version of the truth. Collaboration is more vital than ever and Vantagepoint keeps your remote teams connected. Vantagepoint empowers project managers and resource managers to proactively manage employee assignments, create accurate project plans and notify employees of upcoming or changed project assignments. As project requirements change and evolve, you can ensure optimal utilization to keep projects on track.
PROJECT AGILITY AND FLEXIBILITY
As project requirements and client demands change, you need to feel confident that you know what teams are working on so you can easily adjust or pivot. Keep remote workers focused on the right projects so you can keep projects on track regardless of where team members are located. Vantagepoint delivers a single project command center so you can not only plan for successful projects, but have the tools to adjust mid-project to keep projects moving forward and keep teams informed. Project managers should also be monitoring project profitability and expenses to keep schedules and budgets on track to make sure teams are getting paid for the work they deliver.
Now is the time to take advantage of workflows and notifications so project managers can easily share assignments, deadlines and budgeted hours from any location without having to wait to coordinate schedules for project meetings. Vantagepoint gives you the ability to be more agile and responsive to your changing client demands.
MAINTAIN CASH FLOW WITH PAPERLESS ENVIRONMENT
Maintaining cash flow is always a priority, but can be a challenge with a remote workforce. Now is the time to take a look at your financial processes and make changes to move from a paper-based process to a paperless environment. Don’t let stacks of papers hold up your billing processes or prevent you from getting paid. Now is the time to take advantage of mobile timesheets and expense reports so employees can easily track time and expenses and quickly upload electronic receipts from anywhere so you don’t have to wait for paper copies to reimburse staff. Then, approvers can review and approve timesheets, expense reports and supporting documents remotely to keep the process moving.
With Vantagepoint, approvals go beyond just time and expense. Project managers can complete draft invoice approvals digitally, taking away the need for stacks of papers, time-consuming physical mark-ups or other delays. And, for the finance teams, take advantage of credit card reconciliation to easily download statements and assign to individual expense reports to expedite reimbursements, eliminating the lag of paper statements. Companies can also take advantage of automatic bank reconciliation to eliminate waiting for, reviewing and reconciling off paper statements. Vantagepoint allows you to reimagine your financial processes and eliminate the paper-laden processes to replace them with paperless, expedited workflows to help remote workers and streamline your cash flow.
