Project Management

In order to achieve true collaboration, everyone working on a Project must have access to all the information relating to it to date, including the time spent, the time scheduled, and any related documentation. Don't stop using OpenCRM when the Invoice is raised, link all of that information to Project Management within OpenCRM and follow a Project through to delivery and complete the customer journey.

Projects

See the bigger picture

Track key Project dates including start date, target end date, and actual end dates.

Link the Project to the originating entities in OpenCRM including the Opportunity, Quotation, Sales Order or Support ticket, showing the bigger picture to your Project Workforce.

Manage Projects as best suits your business. You can filter Projects by a variety of fields, both standard and user defined, including status, priority, assigned user, or any combination of the Project fields.

Create a variety of different types of Project and ensure that the information specific to a particular type is recorded.

Manage your time

Outline the Activities required to complete the Project and track work carried out.

View the Project screen to see how much time, both chargeable and non-chargeable, has been recorded, completed or scheduled, how much time is left until the deadline, and how much time has overrun.

Communication is key

Broadcast your emails and SMS messages to everyone on the Project. Notify individual users keeping an audit of comments raised and responses. Output the Project description to a PDF and easily distribute this via email with a single click.

Activities

Look at it differently

Within OpenCRM you can set up custom views of your data, driving you towards the information that is important to you, at a time when it is important.

Activity views allow you to easily see which Activities are overdue: dates are displayed in red when the Activity is overdue, green when the due date is present, or black when the due date is set for the future.

Track your time

When you link an Activity to a Project, the amount of time recorded on that Activity is included in the calculation of the overall Project time. This allows you to track how long the Project is taking.

You can also set the Activity to be Chargeable or Non-Chargeable time, which will be reflected on the Project. Now you have the ability to easily create Invoices off the back of a Project that accurately reflect the time it took to complete.

Documents

Keep on topic

Do your projects generate a lot of external paperwork? Make sure everyone is on the same page using the Documents module.

Upload any and all associated Documents (or write them within OpenCRM using Document templates) and link them to the Project. Now you and the whole team always have access to the same information.

In the words of the world famous Kermit the Frog – ‘It’s not easy being Green’! We at OpenCRM are Green! so imagine my delight when I attended the recent North East Expo and the guys stood next to me were also green. They took the applause, however, as they also has a 6 foot frog with them. Talk about making yourself stand out! But why a 6 foot frog? As I walked amongst the various stalls and exhibitors I regularly heard ‘have you...

Always Record your Ac…

We have a long running (kinda sad) joke in the office. Whenever someone says that they forgot to do a particular job, someone will inevitably reply that they should get “some kind of system for that…maybe a CRM.” There’s always a bit of a sigh and a chuckle…I told you it was a sad joke. But the root of our vague amusement comes from the idea that, when we forget to do something, it probably is because we didn’t make a note...

Humanity seems to thrive on failure. The news pages are filled daily with stories of defeat, misadventure and mishap. Business launches that flop spectacularly or a tech invention that goes wrong - for whatever reason we love to read about that kind of thing. In fact, at certain levels we have come to expect failure. Sporting fixtures for our national team or the Eurovision Song Contest are occasions where we almost relish the prospect of not winning. But lack of success...

We’re always looking for ways we can improve the service we provide to our customers. Sometimes this is a little tweak to our product and other times it is a little adjustment to our process. Sometimes these process modifications mean that we need a new way of capturing information in our own OpenCRM system. Let me give you an example: a small number of years ago, we were finding that information about new customers wasn’t always being passed across to the project...

OpenCRM is designed to cater for a wide range of business challenges. Different clients tend to use the system for as diverse a range of problem solving as you could imagine – some will use the out-of-the-box system for general contact management whereas others like to focus on a specific function and carry out extensive custom work, designing this to meet their exact requirements. Working in the Projects team, I get to help these customers in reaching their goals for their...
