What is Professional Services Automation
Professional services automation is especially beneficial for professional services organizations that provide a specific service to their clients. These organizations typically utilize a project management tool, but often need tools to track time, expenses, profitability, revenue recognition and more, which is why a specific software tool is needed. When discussing professional services software, you will often hear it referred to as professional services automation (PSA), Services Resource Management, ERP for Professional Services, or Project Portfolio Management (PPM). PPM has a slightly different meaning than the others, as it is often driven more towards internal IT groups or internal project groups with a focus on capitalization of the overall project.
