Project Insight Change Orders Help Professional Services Teams Stay Profitable on Projects

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - May 26, 2015) - Cloud based project management software provider, Project Insight, announced the release of change orders associated with projects to control project scope and cost. Many project teams that work on client-facing projects find that clients make additional requests as the project progresses.

Now the project manager can capture these scope changes in a formal change order, adding the tasks and related costs. Once entered, the change order can be routed internally or to the client for approval. If the change order is approved, then the tasks, resource assignments, fixed and labor costs are added automatically to the project schedule.

"As many of our customers are in professional services or conduct client-facing projects, the addition of change orders was a natural request. As our customers mature in their project processes, they are getting better at identifying scope changes that require formalization. Change orders assure that our customers capture new requests from their clients, charge appropriately and remain profitable," remarked Cynthia West, VP of Project Insight.

Change order functionality includes:

  • Capture scope changes with description, new tasks, resource assignments and costs
  • Route change orders to multiple approvers to formalize adjustment to the project
  • Add new project tasks, resources and costs to the existing schedule automatically once approved
  • Ability to place a change order on hold
  • Report on all change orders
