What a pleasure it is when a pursuit of particulars ends positively. Such has been the outcome of 360’s lengthy search for a comprehensive, cloud-accessed, project management solution for professional services firms that makes as much sense for the lower end of the market as it does for those organizations with many more users.
WorkBook Software is a bit of a miracle find for 360, for the scores of boxes it means we can check off on our professional services clients’ wish list. Built with Microsoft Silverlight and designed to reside on a Microsoft SQL Azure database, WorkBook complements our existing Microsoft product line up magnificently.
It’s one of the reasons 360 Visibility, sitting atop an extraordinary 15-year track record of ably servicing professional services firms, has secured a strategic partnership arrangement with this brilliantly endowed software package. With it, we get exclusive distribution and selling rights in the North American market.
WorkBook—an all-in-one financial management, pipeline management, project management, resource planning, time/expense solution— handles a range of work-related processes, from CRM and new business acquisitions, to resource handling and mileage allowance. It was released in 2000 and today services clients in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, England, Russia, Bangladesh and Vietnam.
The system has among its most useful features a cleverly designed executive dashboard that offers C-suite players easy access to instant company overviews. With full financial reports at their fingertips, managers enjoy quick-hit snapshots of corporate performance that highlight what they’re doing right, along with areas for improvement. More than that, the software offers high-end guidance on how to most optimally utilize an organization’s limited resources.
Accessed from the cloud and tailored specifically for professional services firms; WorkBook targets professionals engaged in such market segments as marketing and communications, taxation and auditing, architecture, engineering and management consulting. The software is extremely scalable and will enable companies from a few users to several hundred users to invest in a solution that will very capably support their growth.
Thanks to an intuitive web interface, built in Microsoft Silverlight and based on Microsoft SQL Azure, WorkBook’s implementation template can quickly and completely detail, document and describe all business flows and business areas within a market segment. And for those customers mindful of the investment they’ve made in the Microsoft Dynamics business system for monitoring their corporate financials.
