CHALLENGES WITH PROJECT VISIBILITY
Avid’s previous system, NetSuite OpenAir, didn’t meet the company’s needs from a financial or operational perspective. The platform required large amounts of costly customization, and offered inefficient ways to manage resources, data, and billing. Lack of visibility into project finances, time cards, billing, and expenses consequently drove profit margins down. And because teams couldn’t generate granular reports for management, executives lacked the ability to make decisions based on global project data. As a result, because real-time project information wasn’t easily accessible, customer relationships suffered.
