Severa Unveils Next-Gen SaaS Application That Manages Sales, Projects, Time and Billing

Severa 3 Simplifies Customer and Project Management, Tracks Work-Time, Automates Billing and Eliminates Revenue Leakage

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - Severa Corporation, Scandinavia's leader in professional services automation and project management tools, today announced the launch of Severa 3 -- a SaaS-based online application for managing customers, projects, time and billing for professional services.

Designed from the ground up and built upon customer feedback, Severa 3 targets professional services organizations in the fields of advertising, architecture, engineering, IT services, management consulting, legal and marketing/public relations.

Based on Web 2.0 technology, Severa 3 represents the next generation of project management applications delivered through cloud computing.

Of most concern to SMBs, Severa is easy to learn and can be implemented in a matter of minutes for any size business organization. Additionally, Severa requires no hardware upgrades, IT personnel involvement or investment into additional software.

"Severa 3 was developed with one objective in mind -- to manage the whole process from project sales to billing in a single system," said Jari Kärkkäinen, CTO of Severa. "We achieved this by letting our existing customers help with the R&D process. By listening to their concerns, we developed a bleeding-edge SaaS application that automates tedious manual processes, minimizes human errors and puts a stop to runaway revenue leakage."

Severa 3 features an intuitive user interface that requires a minimal learning curve. Its revolutionary one-click methodology allows single-click access to the most commonly used functions such as adding customers, entering work hours or running reports. This saves a lot of time since now employees can perform their daily routines with ease.

"We know the pains of professional service organizations in optimizing resources, managing projects, tracking work hours and creating project invoices. Severa helps with automation and gives a clear and accurate picture of the state of business in real-time," said Severa CEO Ari-Pekka Salovaara. "Severa 3 is offered free of charge for the first user of any organization. We are confident businesses will quickly appreciate the value of this indispensable tool and become inseparable from it."
