Integrated Project Management

With the right CRM, you can incorporate project management that brings your staff, vendors and customers together. Project management tools allow you to establish your baseline and critical paths, identify milestone dependencies, and manage your resources.

Save time by capitalizing on the information already available to you in your CRM when you implement a full suite of project management advantages:

  • Seamless collaboration: Use communication tools, including social media, to keep your team in touch with clients and vendors.
  • Project planning tools: Tasks, milestones and resource management allow you to break down complex projects into comprehensive workflow blueprints.
  • Task workflows: Send each day’s task assignments automatically to the right team member or vendor and track progression toward each milestone.
  • Gantt charts: Understand the dependencies of each significant project milestone to ensure resources are available at the right time.
  • Critical path tracking: Gantt charts also allow you to identify the critical path and baselines to ensure your team is meeting the most critical milestones.
  • Time tracking: Log billable and non-billable hours with timesheets that automatically generate client invoices.
  • Issue tracking: All projects encounter bumps in the road – get immediate insight as issues arise and understand how delays flow through the entire project.
  • Budget and cost tracking: Monitor any variances between planned and actual costs to manage overruns before they happen.
  • Document management: Keep all project documents in one place, so your team can access and collaboratively work on the most recent version.
  • App integration: In addition to integrating with your CRM, the right project management system allows you to plug in the most commonly used tools, such as Google, Slack, GitHub and Dropbox.
