Environmental and resource management consultants
BlueSphere Environmental was formed in 2010 and provides professional environmental and resource management consulting services to the private and government market sectors. Precise, flexible and responsive project management is a critical part of the business and, at the time BlueSphere started investigating Heads-up, BlueSphere was looking for a project management system that would grow with the business.
With increasing staff numbers, larger projects and additional revenue streams being generated by the business, it was becoming too time consuming to track budgets and project time via different systems. This also increased the likelihood of transcription error. BlueSphere sought a complete system where the team could track timesheets, budgets, invoicing and sub-contractor costs in one central location.
The managers looked at three platforms and chose Heads-up because it offered:
- A development team that understood professional services businesses
- A tailored solution where the company could collaborate with the Heads-up team to enhance the solution specific to the business
- The opportunity to implement custom solutions in the future
As a result of implementing Heads-up, project managers spend less time on tracking projects because all the data they need is available in one place. They also have more accuracy and continued time savings in administration. It’s an easy solution for the team and, with the ability to sync with MYOB, it further reduces the need for duplicating data entry. Heads-up has proved to be easy to implement and is a quality, efficient solution for the business.
“BlueSphere is focused on delivering complex environmental and regulatory, projects on time and within budget, offering a tailored and balanced solution to meet our clients’ challenges. Since we started, our team has quadrupled in size and that growth has made a total project management system vital. Also, we wanted a system that would be able to grow with us. The support from the Heads-up team has been great. They’ve assisted in implementing Heads-up and have modified it to fit our specific reporting and financial needs. Heads-up efficiently provides our project managers with a good understanding of the health of their projects and it saves us considerable time. Heads-up has proven to be an effective system for our needs. As we continue to grow, I look forward to a continued mutually beneficial relationship for the future.”
