What is Professional Services Automation software (PSA)?


Professional services automation (PSA) software is an intelligently designed software solution that allows companies to bring multiple platforms together under one application. Things like project management, time tracking, resource planning and collaborative tools are all available through PSA software.

PSA software like NetSuite PSA is particularly suited for companies in the services industry who work throughout a project’s lifecycle to manage client interactions and engagement. This includes the initial stages of a project from when a sales opportunity is found, throughout the negotiation stages and even helps allocate resources to meet the various goals of a project. PSA software can even generate invoices for the completed work, creating a single ecosystem for an entire project.
