Re-Think Scope Development
Build a Library of Best Practices
Effortlessly transform proposals into a versatile library of templates that can be combined, Lego-style, to create new proposals tailored to your needs. Our intelligent solution automatically dissects, reschedules, and reassigns templates and prior proposals to different departments or locations while recalculating costs using up-to-date rates and inflation factors. This innovative approach streamlines the proposal creation process, saving time and resources while ensuring the most accurate and relevant information is incorporated into each new project proposal. Templates can also be configurable, enabling a Services or Project-based CPQ.
Build a Project Knowledge Base
With every project you deliver, meticulously capture time-clock and time-card data to establish a robust knowledge base of prior performance history. Continuously enrich and reuse this invaluable information to inform future estimates for similar work, enhancing accuracy and consistency across projects. This systematic approach not only helps refine your estimating processes but also empowers your team to make well-informed decisions, ultimately driving increased efficiency, productivity, and success within your organization.
Connect People Around a Single Source of Truth
Connecting people around a single source of truth and incorporating workflow processes are crucial when scoping and estimating a project. This approach ensures that all team members access consistent, accurate information, fostering collaboration and reducing misunderstandings. Streamlined workflows guide the team through each phase, maintaining accountability, and promoting efficient communication. Ultimately, this unified method supports informed decision-making, optimizes resource allocation, and increases the likelihood of project success.
Top Down Planning to Set Yourself Up For Success
Adopting a top-down planning approach that incorporates "Price to Win" and "Design to Cost" strategies is vital when scoping and estimating a project. This method aligns the project's objectives with budget constraints and client expectations, ensuring competitiveness in the market. By focusing on these strategies, teams can identify cost-saving opportunities and make informed decisions, ultimately delivering a high-quality project that meets or exceeds the client's requirements while staying within budgetary constraints.
Designed on SAP HANA for Organizations Running SAP
Our solution takes full advantage of SAP's robust HANA database. It is natively integrated with SAP to reuse master data already maintained in SAP, such as resource pools, BOMs, items, routings, vendors, etc. At the same time, we leverage and reference your rich transaction histories sitting in SAP, such as quotes, contracts, purchase orders, and production orders, to anchor estimates in reality.
Even long-time SAP customers still have non-SAP data sources critical for the bid & proposal process, such as DOORS, Primavera, and Salesforce. Don't worry; we've got you covered.
We have added flexibility to fit your specific landscape and security requirements regarding deployment. The solution is architected to allow for several deployment scenarios, such as directly in your S/4 HANA instance, in an on-premise HANA sidecar, or the cloud, all the time being ITAR compliant.
