Project Insight Pays-off

INCREASED REVENUE

  • "Before using Project Insight, we were 'guess-timating' how many hours were spent on client projects. After our implementation of Project Insight, we found that we reclaimed an hour of billable time per week. Studies have shown that one hour per week of lost billable time equals $10,000 per year, per person. So, we are definitely billing more revenue because of Project Insight!"
    -Performance consulting & training design firm
  • "Before Project Insight, our compliance of time entry was 60%. Now, after implementing Project Insight, our team has an 85% compliance rate for time entry. This means we are capturing more billable time which translates directly into revenue."
    -Interactive advertising & marketing firm
  • "Our billables are much more accurate with Project Insight than with the previous tool…Process improvements and accountability, Project Insight has also helped improve accountability. We had one resource who was using 80% of his time on administrative tasks, so we corrected those things."
    -Financial services company


LESS WASTED TIME

  • "Before Project Insight, it took me two days to enter my time for the month. Now that I enter time at the task level as the task is completed, it takes me five minutes a day."
    -Oil exploration tool company
  • "Before Project Insight, our code release meetings ran over two hours long each week. Because we now track our code changes in tasks, we only have to meet 15 minutes each week."
    -Software development company
  • "We meet every year in Hawaii to plan for the following year. Usually, we have to bring in many resources and managers for a period of three days. With Project Insight, we didn't have to bring everyone and the planning took a half a day."
    -Astronomical observatory
  • "Project managers used to spend 50% of a week chasing project status, now we spend minutes. In addition, our development managers find it much more efficient to make estimates based on actual data."
    -Software development organization
  • "The traditional method of updating tasks had consisted of passing a spreadsheet around to collect comments. Network engineers now update all essential information in Project Insight prior to weekly meetings. Because all information is ready and up to date, meetings that used to be one hour long have been reduced to 15 minutes."
    -Communications company


IMPROVED MORALE

  • "Before Project Insight, our resources could not tell us how much work they had to do. Now, everyone can see what needs to be worked on, [and] …we're able to handle projects that, historically, were considered impossible. We've improved employee morale through measured execution of tasks."
    -Software development company


RIGHT SIZED RESOURCING

  • "Project Insight helps with resource allocation… If we've got a developer that's on three projects, with 90 hours of work, we know it is not going to work. That's a capability that we didn't have before."
    -National furniture retailer
  • "By tracking time in Project Insight, we can budget and forecast the right number of resources for the coming year."
    -Retailer


R&D TAX CREDITS

  • "One of the things that attracted us to Project Insight was the resource allocation and the ability to capture hours. The tax law in California has requirements about tracking R&D hours and—if they meet certain criteria—the company qualifies for a tax credit. With Project Insight, we're able to gather all the data on the hours that are being worked on for R&D projects, submit them, and receive the tax credits."
