As an Information Technology (IT) and Services company, keeping track of your project lifecycle from lead management up to project closing is crucial to your company’s success.

This is why the NetSuite Services Resource Planning (SRP) feature is a sought-after tool in improving the cash flow and revenue of global IT and Services companies. With a single source of truth, executives like you can have a quick grasp of how your company is doing by looking at the financial data generated from your project lifecycle.
