How To Make Time Recording Easier With Project ERP

Timesheets. A thorn in the side of every professional services firm and worker alike. From the company’s point of view they are fundamental when it comes to reclaiming that all important revenue. From the employee’s point of view, they are a tedious process that distracts them from the job they love. With your business’s profitability at stake, you’ll want to do whatever you can to encourage accurate time recording at your firm. But what steps can you take to get your employees on board?

1. Communicate the facts about lost time

2. Provide your staff with the tools they need

3. Consider mobile compatibility

4. Encourage cultural change with project-based ERP

 

You may have already tried these tips for improving your time recording processes and still feel you are losing the battle when it comes to timesheets completion at your firm. If so, you may need to consider taking things a step further at your firm by igniting cultural change. An ERP system with built in project functionality could help shape behaviour and win your staff around to taking time recording more seriously.

Giving your employees access to a single dashboard that relates project based information with operational data will install a greater sense of accountability. Employees that are able to see firsthand how omitting just an hour of time can affect the profitability of their project – and in turn the prosperity of the company – will be more incentivised to act. This could be the catalyst you need to really ease timesheet pains at your firm.

Case Study: Eppstein Uhen Architects

Leading Architecture Firm takes Business to the next level by moving to Deltek Vision

With more than 140 employees and $24 million in 2007 total revenue, Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) is a thriving architecture firm serving corporate, healthcare, public, retail and senior living markets.

When the company’s growth clearly warranted the implementation of a client relationship management (CRM) system, they attempted using a homegrown solution through Outlook. But to make it work they had to manually transfer project and client data into an accounting system to pursue opportunities and even track basic client information.

Eppstein Uhen once again looked to Deltek for a solution. They learned that Deltek Vision, a fully integrated solution that combines a complete project accounting system with an integrated project management and CRM solution, provided all of the functionality that Eppstein Uhen had been seeking.
