TORONTO, Dec. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Changepoint, a leading provider of professional services automation (PSA) and project portfolio management (PPM) solutions, today announced the results of their implementation with Keste, an award-winning software solutions and development company. Keste selected Changepoint PSA to gain several key features in a single end-to-end package for increasing visibility across the entire organization including the ability to capture project data in real-time, relay data through customizable dashboards to stakeholders, and flag budget overages.
Focusing its business on the execution, delivery, and support of global enterprise software solutions, Keste relies heavily on their primary business asset – its consultants. The company depended on an outdated process of Excel and a time capture solution to monitor its resources, project status, and profitability until exponential personnel and revenue growth over a short period of time drove the need to scale to a more automated solution. Keste turned to Changepoint to deliver a system that could match their extreme growth curve, capture project data in real-time, and provide robust reporting and dashboards to departments throughout the business.
"We run our business end-to-end with Changepoint PSA, and the insights we've gained have changed the way we manage operations and people – our greatest asset – for the better," said Ken Judd, CFO at Keste. "We're able to view things objectively and make profitable adjustments regarding compensation plans, staffing engagements, and even recruitment approaches."
Since implementing Changepoint, Keste has been able to integrate each segment of their business processes throughout their global organization. The solution's intuitive user experience, global interoperability, and multi-currency functionality was able to drive immediate results. Users worldwide were able to immediately begin using the system for key items such as converting between currencies without losing data integrity. The company has also been able to leverage the data insights it provides to identify project overruns as they happen, reducing leakage and capturing potentially lost profits. In turn, Keste has been able to predict future overages by mapping them back to bottom line inefficiencies, which has helped to drive profitability through more effective project management. More recently, Keste seamlessly integrated its financial reporting system with the PSA solution and was able to eliminate double entries, saving them two months of work each year.
"Changepoint gives consulting services like Keste the capacity to manage projects distributed across global systems and gain invaluable insights that can be used to make critical operation decisions," said Mark Upson, President of Changepoint. "The results of Keste's implementation exemplify how our solution can assist companies looking to scale their PSA to match their growth and ever increasing business needs."
Changepoint is used by companies worldwide to optimize day-to-day processes across all aspects of business while maintaining top-line revenues and bottom-line profitability. To learn more about how Keste is utilizing the Changepoint PSA solution, you can access the full case study here.
