MONTREAL, CANADA – July 28, 2020 – Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD), a leader in cloud-based enterprise work management software, announces Upland PSA 2020 R2, the latest release of Upland PSA with significant upgrades to enhance services team productivity. Included in the release, a new Resource Request Workflow, PO Consumption Updates and Notifications, Expense submission improvements including Receipt Capture, and an Expanded Help Center, all operate together to help our customers achieve optimal productivity in times of economic uncertainty.
“In these times of economic uncertainty, it has been important for us, as leaders in professional service automation solutions, to help our customers perform their job more easily than ever before,” says Rafat Hilal, General Manager, Upland Software. “This latest release is about finding opportunities to limit the number of meetings and emails to get the job done, with reduced manual intervention, and help our customers increase productivity in order to keep their business running smoothly.”
Included in this release are a number of features aimed at improving team productivity with fewer meetings and less manual intervention:
- Streamlined Project Staffing: With the new resource request workflow, staffing requests are submitted by project managers, prompting resource managers to fulfill the request in compliance with established internal policies while maximizing project margins and resource utilization. At the same time, resource managers can identify available resources using configurable color-coded utilization visual indicators.
- Enriched PO Management: Project managers can view available Purchase Orders, including consumption status, on Accounts and Projects in PSA, helping them manage project budgets without having to gather the information from Finance or Account Managers. Coupled with new alerts and notifications, both project managers and customer success managers can be notified at creation or consumption milestones to help them actively monitor the available budget and ensure maximum consumption without overrun.
- Improved Expense Management: When submitting expenses, team members can now take a photo of their receipt and have it automatically scanned to recognize information that can be directly populated into their expense report, for example, date, amount, taxes, and more. In addition, the receipt image is now displayed right beside the entry details, removing additional clicks, and enabling team members to quickly verify the receipt and the scanned data, before submitting for approval.
- Expanded Help Center: Offering a new look and feel, the redesigned Help Center makes it easy to find information and resources on a variety of topics. The User Experience focused on improved search capabilities and better organization of search results to improve readability and reduce scrolling and navigation.
