The Professional Services industry is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the UK. In the past 20 years, firms have expanded to meet the demands of this flourishing, knowledge-based services economy. So it’s no surprise that many ambitious Professional Services firms have outgrown the systems they originally set up to support smaller-scale operations.

Why Xpedition?

At Xpedition, we understand the challenges Professional Services businesses face in managing project financials. Most finance systems aren’t designed to cater for project or resource management. Instead, firms use separate applications, like Excel or a standalone project management solution. Data in the finance system does not reflect true, real-time project costs and revenues. This constrains Professional Services firms’ productivity, ability to grow and outperform their competition.

As one of the UK’s leading and trusted Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central implementation partners, we’ve partnered with industry specialists Progressus to provide a leading, all-in-one solution that’s purpose-built to meet Professional Services organisations’ needs for efficient project and business finance management.

Combining sector knowledge and leading solution expertise, we engage quickly with your business goals and priorities. We can help you optimise and integrate operations and processes within an all-in-one finance and project management solution.

The outcome: a powerful, comprehensive financial and project management system that streamlines business management and delivers immediate and accurate decision insight and reporting across your entire business.

FAQs

What type and size of company is this solution for?

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is perfectly positioned for the mid-market. We have a diverse range of clients, serving anything from a handful up to hundreds of users. The solution is designed for organisations with any type of project management requirement. This could be fee-earning projects for your clients, or internal projects (such as office design or IT system rollouts) where you want to plan, budget and track costs, time spent and revenue from those projects.

How much does it cost?

User licences start at £6 a month for a finance view and approval only user, and £13 for a project time and expense entry user. As this is a cloud-based system, you pay per user, per month. Unlike an on-premise system, there’s no need to pay for hardware and infrastructure, nor upgrade and maintenance costs – it’s all included within the subscription. You can flex up or down on demand, so you only ever pay for what you need. Initially, you pay for Xpedition’s consultancy and implementation services to get set up. Then, if you want ongoing user support, we can provide that for a monthly fee.

Which users will benefit most from using this solution?

  • Project team: quick, simple, time and expense entry on any device, minimising time on admin tasks and maximising billable time.
  • Project managers: easily and quickly set up projects and get an overview of the health of each project. Check costs and revenue against budgets, invoicing, resource allocation and work in progress reports.
  • Finance: full visibility of costs incurred by the business as well as revenues. Accurately predict cashflow based on billing against projects in real-time, with no duplicate data entry.
  • Business managers and leaders: make informed business decisions quickly, knowing that they are based on up-to-date and complete data and reports.

How long does it take to get the solution up and running?

It obviously varies for each client as every organisation has different requirements, but Microsoft Dynamics Business Central is purpose-built for rapid deployment with a vast depth and breadth of functionality available out-of-the-box. You can expect the implementation of a new project and finance management solution to take anything from 3 months upwards.

We can also deliver all projects end-to-end 100% remotely. Watch our video to find out more >
