Dynamics 365 for Project Service Automation (PSA)

For organizations that aren’t looking for a fully integrated Professional Services ERP solution (Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations), Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation (PSA) is an end-to-end project and resource management solution for firms delivering customer-facing, project-based services. Dynamics 365 PSA empowers sales and delivery teams to successfully engage customers and deliver billable projects on time and within budget, by helping you plan, estimate, and quote projects, schedule resources to optimize utilization, track and approve project tasks, time and expenses, enable internal and external team collaboration, and monitor key project and resource related performance metrics.

Project-based contracts - Project-based contracts relate quotes and orders to project plans, financial estimates, labor pricing, and billing arrangements, like time and materials or fixed price. The contract highlights key metrics, including profitability and feasibility.

Project planning - Visual project planning and estimation includes predecessors, automatic task scheduling, and views of sales and cost information for time and expenses. You can use the resulting plan in quotes and project contracts.

Resource management - Resource information includes the skills and proficiencies of your workforce. You can view and filter resources based on skills and availability, so you can assign the right people to the right projects. You can also track resource utilization and forecasting metrics.

Time, expenses, and collaboration - Team members can use the web or mobile apps to record time and expenses for multiple projects. Managers can easily approve new entries while understanding the financial implications of the newly-approved items. All team members can collaborate with an Office 365 workspace created for their project.

Project billing - Project invoices reflect the terms of the contract and the approved work and expenses. The financial impact of project work, including costs, unbilled revenue, and invoices, are recorded for use in analytics and integration into financial systems.
