Industry Solutions – Project-based Organisations

Project Operations – Project-based companies run projects for external clients as well as for traditional service-or product-oriented companies. It involves grouping employees into teams to complete a project. The company determines the scope and budget of each project based on an estimate of the labour and materials needed to deliver the customer specifications.

With DAC Systems and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Operations, companies can get the visibility, collaboration, and agility needed to drive success across their project-centric business.
