Keep resources off the bench. Handle time and expenses from anywhere. Track business performance.
CMAP runs on live data, with timesheets, personal expenses and purchases invoices always visible.
This real-time awareness enables you to identify issues (e.g. resourcing projections exceeding the PO value) and take action before it's too late.
The Story So Far feature uses actuals to date plus future resourcing data to tell you where your project is headed and what it's likely end margin will be.
Over time, CMAP helps you to understand where you're profitable and gives you the tools to adapt and scale.
From a contacts directory, through lead and opportunity management, CMAP assists your business development efforts.
Key functionality includes:
Importantly, this is all assisted by industry-specific job costing functionality not found in standalone CRM's, where the fee is just a number you punch in.
CMAP's HR module enables you to capture the skills & experience of your resource pool and use that data when making resourcing decisions.
The drag & drop Workload Schedule tool allows you to assign users to projects and make quick changes e.g. swapping out one user for another.
What's more, your resourcing data fuels revenue projections, informs the likely end margin of the project and helps you to track to hit the PO value.
CMAP keeps users up-to-speed on the areas that matter to them e.g. project workers with resourcing, project managers with performance, finance with billing, etc.
Points of note include:
Tracking time and expenses is the absolute core for a consulting company, but most systems make this painful and
CMAP makes it easy (a) because it's so straightforward and (b) as you can access from anywhere on desktop, tablet or mobile.
The CMAP Go smartphone app is available on iOS and Android devices and is packed with useful features e.g. taking photos of expense receipts and uploading them to your claim, completing your weekly timesheet and processing sales-follow up activities.
CMAP’s HR module gives you all the tools you need to better leverage every member of your team.
Every member of staff has a People Profile that allows you to see their client and project experience by pulling in their timesheet data.
Through the use of custom data fields you can also add other market experience, as well as things such as languages and skills, so you’ll always have the best people on the job.
Documents such as appraisals and contracts can also be saved against each profile. Plus, there’s space for general files too – employee handbooks and return to work forms for example.Learn More
The add-in enables you to:
Projects can be run as time & materials or fixed fee engagements.
Budgets can be built in a variety of ways e.g. quoting days against roles directly in the Fee Estimator, or using the Resource Schedule to resource-out the project and use that data to build your budget.
Choose from centrally approved rate cards or create project-specific rate cards, if required, in whichever currency you'd prefer to run the project in.
Compare the cost and sell rate of time and third party costs to calculate the projected margin the project will yield.
