Contract-2-Reference- Projectmanagement with SpiceCRM
Once the opportunity is won and the contract is signed, quite often a project has to be set up. SpiceCRM offers you the possibility to relate a project directly to an account and opportunity and structure this project according to your requirements.
The way a project team is structured can play a major role in how it functions. SpiceCRM supports a work breakdown structure so that the team’s work can be organized into manageable sections. Split your project in WBS and track effort per WBS.
Project management is, as one can say, the coordination of tasks and differnt individual activities. SpiceCRM supports you in task management for the whole project as well as in activity planning and tracking on each WBS level.
Execution along the process is one part. Equally important is the capability to gain insight and analyze the process. This helps to drive performance in the project team and keep up to date about the milestones. Useful reports support the individual as well as the management.
