Punkhelsinki Selects Severa 3 for Project Management and PSA System

SaaS-Solution Enables the Advertising Agency to Monitor Sales and Billing Independently of Time and Place

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - Severa Corporation, a developer of leading project management tools for professional services automation (PSA), announced today that Helsinki, Finland-based advertising agency Punkhelsinki, selected Severa's PSA system to ensure efficient accounting, more accurate project billing, and project management best practices.

Punkhelsinki is a new wave advertising agency. The firm provides marketing and design services to companies that want to question traditional marketing and challenge their market position.

Before Severa 3 implementation, Punkhelsinki didn't have a system to monitor working hours or for CRM, billing and project management. Previously, the agency had used Excel spreadsheets to enter project work time, from which information was compiled for customer billing. Implementing a PSA system brought a major improvement for the agency's daily workflow.

"We jumped from Excel directly to the space age with the Severa PSA system," stated Punkhelsinki CEO Jan Schaper.

Severa 3 was not the only PSA service that Punkhelsinki evaluated. "Severa's highly developed and user friendly UI and layout concept convinced us that it was the best service for us," said Schaper. "Two of our employees are currently using Severa but we are aiming to have all our employees switch to the system by the end of the year."

Punkhelsinki CEO Schaper has already seen the benefits a single system can have on all office routines. "We can now perform all our actions via Internet and automatically by entering only one parameter." He is also content that Severa enables the monitoring of sales and customer billing regardless of time and place.

Severa enables its customers to manage customers, projects, work time and billing easily and efficiently with one system. Severa users are professional services organizations in the fields of advertising, management consulting, architecture, engineering and IT services.
