OpenAir Key Features

Project Management

Constantly ensure the maximum profitability of your business’s projects. OpenAir’s cloud-based platform makes it simple and seamless for you to update and manage your company’s small and complex projects. Regardless of where you are or what browser you’re using, you’ll be able to guarantee each project is completed efficiently and delivered on time. As a company executive or project manager, you can ensure each project’s success every time because you’ll be able to update and comprise reports for each project’s status instantaneously, as well as view each project’s dynamics in real-time. You’ll also be able to model “what if” scenarios to improve pricing, billing rates, staffing, and overall project effectiveness, allowing you to better communicate project financial considerations and statuses to your clients.

Resource Management

Improve how you manage your resources located across the world, while ensuring the success and profitability of your company’s projects. When using OpenAir’s resource management feature you’ll never have to wonder whether your current resources are allocated for the appropriate projects at the right time again. You’ll easily be able to assign, manage, and update resources for projects based on the needs of each project, employee skillsets and experience, availability, and up-to-date project timelines.

Project Accounting

Closely and effortlessly oversee a project’s accounting and revenues throughout every stage of the project with OpenAir’s flexible project accounting capability. Ensure each project is delivered on time and within its allocated budget by thoroughly monitoring its revenue streams, expenses, and billing. Keep all your financials better organized by separating revenues by their different types and originations with OpenAir’s advanced revenue source recognition. And, use automated billing to safeguard your incoming capital and keep your clients satisfied.

Timesheet Management

Generate comprehensive timesheets easily from anywhere. Whether you’re in the backseat of a taxi on your smartphone or on a laptop in your office, you can use any device to access and generate timesheets with advanced time management capabilities. OpenAir’s time management capability integrates with its project management capabilities and tools, yielding unified and all-encompassing time reporting per project, for each project stage, individual project tasks, and more.

Expense Management

Effortlessly track every type of expense with its required documentation with OpenAir’s expenses management feature. Organize expenses by billable and non-billable hours, business-initiated appointments, and customer-facing events. And allow each of your employees to enter their own expenses from their mobile devices, whether they have an iPhone or a device that’s powered by Android. When you permit your employees to conveniently enter their own hours and upload photos of their receipts, you also ensure timely billing cycles and reduce the amount of needless and preventable mistakes and investigations your operations and billing teams must handle. Because the OpenAir expense management feature is integrated with the project accounting and project management features, you’ll also always know exactly what project each expense must be allocated toward, which ensures each expense is allocated to the appropriate client in the appropriate currency every time.

Professional Services Dashboards and Reporting

Provide everyone in your organization with direct access to critical data and information with OpenAir’s self-service dashboards and reporting capabilities.
