|Do you manage
engineering or prototype production projects? Do you install
or service the products you manufacture? If so, the Sage MAS
500 ERP Project Management solution can keep your project
managers informed and equip them with the tools they need to
profitably manage these projects.
By implementing this robust solution, you will enable your
project managers to easily assign resources to projects,
track actual versus estimated costs through project
completion, and generate detailed estimates for customers.
Projects can be based on a fixed price, by accounting for
time and materials, or a combination of both options.
Moreover, Project Management can be integrated with
Microsoft Project, so you can leverage the strengths of both
products to gain a comprehensive tool for managing all
tasks, resources, and schedules.
Another Project Management feature that is particularly
important to manufacturers is the ability to manage a wide
variety of project types. This flexibility can significantly
decrease project management costs by eliminating the need
for multiple project tracking systems. In addition, six
GAAP-compliant profit recognition methods enable you to
control profit recognized over each period, resulting in a
well-managed revenue stream.
Beyond its ability to manage manufacturing projects, Project
Management also boasts a series of tools designed for
businesses that install or service products. Time and
materials can be instantly expensed throughout the
installation or service processes. And Sage TimeSheet can be
implemented to facilitate remote viewing and updating of
