Professional Services Automation
There are some business questions that are as relevant today as they were in the past: What am I selling? Where am I selling? Who will buy my product/service? What’s the best way to reach my market? How do I delight my customers while remaining financially healthy?
While these are universal business challenges for any organization, professional services organizations differ in one unique characteristic – their product is their people and they need to leverage people, process and technology to grow and be successful.
