Shared Calendaring

Planning, collaboration and activity management are improved with the use of a common, universal calendar (complete with privacy settings). Team leaders can assign activities, and review upcoming events on an activity sidebar.

Improved Document Management via Upload and Linking

Configured similar to a virtual file box, the improved document management feature allows media and document files to be uploaded and allocated to specific projects. Keyword searches on text-based files can be conducted.

Support for World Currencies

A must for global account management, the multi-currency add-on supports over 160 currencies from around the world. Price lists, products and services are created in multiple currencies, and associated with projects and accounts. Meanwhile, financial reporting and forecasting is completed in the base currency.

Custom Timeline Reports

Graphic display of customized timeline reports details sales activities, revenue, order amounts, billing etc., highly useful in viewing a snapshot of current revenue or billing situation; a popular request from users and a differentiator that separates Severa from competitive products.

"These improvements in file handling, collaboration and calendaring are a direct result of listening foremost to what customers want in a PSA driven project management system," said Ville Kuusela, Severa Chief Operating Officer. "We view these upgrades as an organic, ongoing evolution of improvement; the end goal being to create the best SaaS-based PSA tool. Feature-rich, yes, but not at the expense of usability and simplicity. We believe this showcases how Severa is on track to becoming the most trusted name in professional services automation."

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.
