At present, industries aspire to increase their radius and provide services on a global level, simultaneously raising their profitability. To attain these aspirations industries often face a very hard time.
It’s certain that every industry struggles through these hardships to meet their targets. But this is most common to the industries that are in the field of providing professional services.
The elemental essence of this industry is constantly increasing competition in the market. This causes organizations to infuse the best business solutions, forecasting and analyzing near future requirements, and optimize costs with respect to the competition.
For this reason, exploring persistent revenue generation opportunities becomes very vital to survive and stay ahead of the competition.
Every complexity of a professional service organization can be managed very efficiently, with a modern business application. Right from the client’s project management to finance management, every minute details can be handled better with the right solution.
One such solution is the cloud-based ERP system. Many professional service companies might not be aware of an ERP system or are just assuming that this system is suitable for only manufacturing industries.
It is true that most of the ERP system companies have developed their software keeping manufacturing companies in mind. But this exceptional technology offers a wide range of functionalities, that can be implemented to the professional service sector as well.
The professional service sector has a selected set of requirements than the manufacturing industry. However, important functions like accounts, finance, human resource, sales and purchasing are common to all industries.

ERP system proves to be a helping hand in this situation by implementing various capabilities along with automation to the process. There are various such features of ERP that can help the professional service sector to a greater extent.
But to solve and find a solution to the challenge, first we have to understand it.
What are the challenges faced by a professional service sector? How it can be overcomed?
1. Lead generation to lead acquirement.
Many professional services providing organizations fail to use the required software to maintain a lead, right from the inquiry stage to the final stage of conversion.
Organizations need to have all the info related to leads like their geographical area, the likeliness of converting, position in a company and various other parameters.
Lack of the above knowledge will act as a wall in the path towards lead conversion.
An ERP system is capable of managing this data, and provide a complete analysis of the data beneficial for lead acquirement. So you carry out the follow-ups of your lead with ease based on the data provided by the system.
2. Saying bye to manual tasks.
Most of the industries are unaware of how much time they are loosing to manual tasks. This unaccounted time invested in the tedious manual process could be invested somewhere more productive.

A cloud-based ERP system is one such system that can eliminate all the manual processes of the organization. These will allow the organizations to take effective decisions leaving the spare time for quality research.

You must be familiar with the saying “To be present at the right place and at the right time”. Well, it’s true and could be applied to your organization.
To identify where to compete, how to choose and use the right tool for your organization justifies the saying.
Many organizations opt for a CRM system and have seen a significant increase in their business. Although the CRM system proves beneficial to the organization, using it alone is just not enough.
