Challenges faced by the procurement team

Lack of visibility of supply-side operations

Professional services suffer from insufficient visibility of supply chain activities, a key reason for cost escalations.

  • Get the real-time insights you need to prepare highly accurate estimates and identify potential per-element costs for your project to ensure it stays within budget
  • Recognize potential risks, assign a value to the financial impact of each risk type, and develop plans to preempt, reduce, and eliminate such threats
  • Track project progress in real time with clean at-a-glance dashboard views of multiple project metrics (workload, progress, idle time) to stem the menace of cost overruns

Need to optimize billable hours

High revenue leakage, resulting from legacy data capture processes, is leaving the C-suite uneasy.

  • Modernize your time-tracking with a performance dashboard capable of visualizing key KPIs – e.g., utilization, yearly revenue and overheads per billable resource, profitability at firm/project levels
  • Precisely clock the time your resources spend on core income-generating activities (versus routine administrative tasks) to ramp up productivity levels in the near-term
  • Leverage AI/ML algorithms to more precisely work out the talent pool size and skills needed on a project to ensure optimal allocation of scarce resources

Devising portfolio strategies

Tough call: Devising portfolio strategies to ride out market volatility

  • Weigh up every single service offering in the portfolio to ensure the most favorable allocation of people, time, and money to improve profitability and rankings
  • Embrace the inorganic route to expand into promising markets and regions with high market-growth potential in the mid-to-long term while tallying up costs and risks
  • Discover ways to curb spends on lackluster offerings with low or negative returns and which constitute an unjustified drag on resources
