Always hunting for resources after a successful sales deal?

Many organisations ask for a better communication between sales and production but they lack successful means to it. Sales department’s greatest interest is to do business and get deals. Winning cases means usually making promises to customers while trying to balance between the capacity of own production and being able to give attractive offers. Those promises can set unnecessary burden to the production if the resource management is not transparent and controlled.

Developing project processes through a software

Change is something that should be noted in business and it touches – or it should touch all the parts of a company. One shouldn’t be afraid of change but be brave and explore what kind of opportunities it can bring along. Understandably, from the viewpoint of process development, change can sound overwhelming.

Many IT companies are used to purchasing information systems to various needs such as enterprise resource planning, task management, access control and project management. However, many organisations rely on Excels when it comes to project resourcing and when pondering about acquiring a new system, developing a solution by yourself becomes an advisable option alongside pre-build solutions. Sometimes ‘own work’ is seen as more affordable as purchasing a pre-build solution. But is this true? Will your self-developed solution become more affordable in the long term?
