Firms are looking outward to better support internal talent

Even in the digital transformation age, the professional services sector remains an industry that really depends on people. To remain successful, businesses have had to take a systematic approach to find experts and optimally allocate staff to projects.

This has led to more and more companies outsourcing core tasks, which has allowed them to gain new contracts and growth opportunities.

Poor control can lead to poor profitability

Hardly any other industry is as reliant on finding specialist employees to adapt to projects as quickly as in professional services. The already complex B2B services market is becoming even more demanding due to varying contract formats and long product cycles – not to mention the shortage of highly-skilled professionals.

In this landscape, only those who have complete control over all fundamental processes and automate as much as possible are able to survive.

Automate and control your processes to keep ahead in the B2B market

In the race to acquire top talent, speed and transparency are decisive factors. For projects to run smoothly, every step needs to be integrated – from the first meeting with the customer to the project billing.

Project planning, talent management and the analysis of project profitability, among other processes and tasks, need to all come together to enable the successful delivery of projects.

Become more efficient with integrated processes and real-time analysis


Order to cash

Standardise all processes from the order to the receipt of payment in a central, employee-accessible system, ensure that time tracking is correctly managed, analyse projects from resource allocation to profitability, and ultimately bill for your services more quickly.


Scouting and Recruiting

Better compete for and acquire top talent with integrated software solutions to match the skills you need with what is available on the job market, and immediately prepare contracts.



Be certain you’re making the right staffing decisions with access to information on employee skills and availability through a consistent talent base that comprises all employees and skills and supports effective project staffing.

Retain top performers and develop your pool of expertise in a target-driven manner with strategic personal development that takes a systematic approach and nurtures existing talent.
