Professional Services Automation & Changepoint Mobility
For services organizations mobility enables business success with anytime, anywhere access to enterprise applications. The mobile workforce that is empowered with simple solutions to capture and report on business critical data stays ahead of the competition. It is estimated that by 2015, the world's mobile worker population will reach 1.3 billion, representing 37.2% of the total workforce.1
More and more services, product management and IT professionals rely on mobile solutions to remain connected to their enterprise applications – where they want and when they want. Through the use of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets users have on-demand access to the data, tasks, and approval rights for which they are responsible.
Mobile consultants who track expenses typically want immediate interaction to enter expense information when expenses are incurred. This means that finance departments are no longer waiting days or weeks for project financial data speeding up the order-to-cash cycle.

For the service leader, an important aspect of organizational success is the ability of the mobile user to provide key organizational, revenue, and cost-based information in a timely manner. Executives thrive on having data at their fingertips and typically are mobile in management meetings, visiting customers, and engaging with others in the executive community.
Tablets have become your office on-the-go, replacing the old-fashioned paper portfolios. Executives using Changepoint can access enterprise data via their tablet for reporting in the form of dashboards, portlets and portals, as well as access for approvals and the ability to participate in workflow. Changepoint users also have access to entity profile information when trying to quickly drill down from a report or portlet or when searching for a key piece of information.
Ease of Connectivity to Changepoint
Changepoint can be accessed through various web browsers using only one single set of configured sign-in credentials. The PSA mobile environment features a simple and intuitive user interface, highlighted by a convenient home page menu. Changepoint’s mobile client is implemented easily and requires no additional licensing for existing users.
Ease of Use
Changepoint's professional services automation software provides a consistent and intuitive experience for users, featuring menu tabs that allow for quick navigation between key areas in the application. Information is displayed in a format that is easy to navigate and is native to the browser on the device, making it simple to create, edit and submit data.
A Framework for Customer Lifecycle Management
Changepoint's PSA software gives services organizations the necessary framework to gain insight into daily operations and drive efficiency across the entire enterprise. Changepoint’s mobile solution provides similar functionality, ensuring that remote resources are able to collect, approve and report on the information and responsibilities for which they are accountable.
More organizations are encouraging their services staff to utilize their own mobile devices at work. Changepoint’s mobile solution relies on the power of web browser technology to enable connectivity and does not require the installation of a native application. Changepoint users seeking mobile access can use multiple devices, including personal hardware, to remain connected to the data, tools, and processes they require to carry out their duties.
