Services Resource Planning: How Integrated PSA, CRM, and Financials Can Transform Your Services Business

Enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and professional services automation (PSA) are all part of a standard software system for many companies today. But for project- and service-driven companies, an emerging type of software is making things easier to combine the most important elements of these solutions to support the whole bidding-to-billing lifecycle. Services resource planning (SRP) provides the basis of a system covering everything from initiation and planning to resource management, execution, and closing of projects and services.

Services- and project-based organizations make up a larger part of the business landscape today, as the economy has become more service- and project-driven in recent years.
