Are You Facing These Challenges as a Professional Services Provider?

Are you finding it increasingly difficult to maintain an overview of margins and revenue when undertaking a diverse range of projects simultaneously? If any of these things sound familiar, it is time to rethink your processes and to talk to our experts.

Process Management

Do basic processes, such as time tracking, recording travel expenses, or order to cash often not run smoothly?

Human Experience Management

Are you constantly searching for talented employees?

Project Management

Is staffing your projects costing valuable time without you knowing if your teams are actually working well together?


Do you have to organize numerous transactions between subsidiaries?

Become More Efficient with Integrated Processes and Real-Time Analysis

Order to Cash

Standardize all processes from the order to the receipt of payment and consolidate them in a central system for all employees to use. Our innovative professional services solutions and support enable you to do this. You ensure that time tracking is correctly and consistently managed due to simple and intuitive functionality, which is also available via a mobile app. You can analyze projects, from resource allocation to profitability, and ultimately bill for your services more quickly.

Scouting and Recruiting

Compared to professional services, hardly any other industry is so reliant on finding specialist employees so quickly and being able to adapt them to projects. However, the shortage of highly-skilled professionals is showing no signs of improving in the near future. In the race to acquire top talent, speed and transparency are decisive factors.

Our experts support you with integrated software solutions to match the skills you need with what is available on the job market, and immediately prepare contracts.


We are certain that your company has the proper talent and vital knowledge. But do you know who excels in certain tasks? Or who is available? And which colleagues work best together?

If you decide all of this based on a gut feeling, there is every chance that your next project may run smoothly – but there is a real risk that it won’t. A consistent talent base that comprises all employees as well as skills, and supports effective staffing of projects, offers you certainty.

Talent Management

Specialists are currently in short supply. That is why it is important to take a systematic approach and nurture existing talent, including both new and experienced employees. Strategic personal development becomes a reality with NTT DATA Business Solutions. This enables you to retain top performers and develop your pool of expertise in a target-driven manner.

Intercompany Booking

Behind many professional services companies, there is an entire series of legally independent units, often based in different countries. And while company executives want to see the figures for entire departments and projects, legislation requires a breakdown by country. This makes accounting complex.

You may even find yourself issuing more internal invoices than customer bills. Structure and automation are in demand. Our global team helps you simplify international intercompany transactions.
