Episode 08: PSA: The Missing Link in Your Resource & Project Management Strategy

From Arc 3: Modernizing Service Organizations Through Automation

October 9, 2023 | 12 minutes

In the second episode of arc three, Sean Docherty interviews Nana Gregg, a Certinia expert, Salesforce MVP, and Diabsolut Solutions Architect. They discuss how PSA solutions, and Certinia PSA in particular, help with resource and project management, as well as business insight.

Key takeaways
  • Separate people and business units with their own processes and tools (often spreadsheets) are common in professional service organizations
  • One major benefit to a PSA solution is that it centralizes data and gives a better view of both the “big picture,” as well as individual teams; it also helps create standard processes and a standardized experience for clients
  • The ability to personalize a PSA solution to fit your organization’s needs will further benefits and ROI — because it impacts the data that goes into and comes out of the solution
  • Understanding resource capacity is one of the most difficult parts of resource management, but it’s something your PSA solution should offer tools to help with
  • If you’re using the Salesforce platform, having a PSA solution that can take advantage of all the updates Salesforce offers is one way to improve your ROI and take your resource and project management capabilities further
