May 10th | Vancouver, BC | Four Js scales burgeoning professional services business with Function Point automation software.
Four Js had been relying on spreadsheets and hand-written documents to support its professional services business for several years and the time had come to industrialize its processes. As the business grew, so it became increasingly time-consuming to obtain timely reporting of the Key Performance Indicators. The process of reporting work in progress, future resource needs, project status, profitability, and whitespace in particular needed improvement.
Function Point’s specialization in workflow and project management combined with Four Js’ need meant that a partnership was inevitable. Function Point software will be rolled out immediately in the US and Canada regions before worldwide adoption in the fall.
The key objectives of the project were as follows:
- Automate financial reporting, including revenue forecasts, accruals, and WIP reports.
- Forecast and anticipate workload and resource needs.
- Replace manually created statements of work with standard documents that could be synchronized with project schedules.
- Ensure streamlined time & materials invoicing that keeps track of all timesheets & expenses.
- Provide a worldwide dashboard of all key performance indicators easily accessible by executive management.
These goals have been met with Function Point’s all-in-one workflow management software.
“Our professional services business is growing rapidly as more of our customers look to eliminate technical debt from their applications. Our manual processes were quickly overwhelmed, and reporting became a burden. We have very specific reporting requirements and many of the solutions we evaluated in the market required customization. Function Point really fit the bill and will help us scale safely and profitably.”
