Professional Services Automation, or PSA, software is a tool that functions as the platform for your project and resource management needs. A PSA solution works as the foundation and main hub for all of your business activities.
PSA software will often seem more complex as it usually includes all aspects of project management, resource management and scheduling, capacity management, budgeting, business intelligence and analysis. Thus, the PSA tool is based on the philosophy that one solid foundation is better than several separate systems.
As the name implies, using a PSA as your business platform will allow you to automate certain aspects of your business and making good use of data available across departments and functions.
