FinancialForce – Services Resource Planning
If your Services business is still using legacy on-premise ERP systems, you’re likely to be suffering with two major problems. First, they were built before the cloud was developed using old technology, so they are often very complex, difficult and costly to maintain. Second, they were originally designed for product-centric manufacturing companies, so they don’t fit the needs of a customer-centric Services business that needs to be flexible, agile and able to rapidly respond to changing customer needs.
What you need is a modern digital services resource planning, or SRP solution, that brings your front-to-back office together with one set of seamless business processes across the company; one that’s able to bring all of your customer, operation, and finance data together in one place, offering you a 360 degree view of your entire business.
You’re probably already using Salesforce to manage your marketing, sales and customer opportunities, and you maya be using it to manage all o your service case and field service work orders as well.
