DUBLIN, OHIO (PRWEB) September 7, 2005 -
Avalinx LLC, a software solutions developer and information technology consultancy, today announced the availability of xWorkForce.com, an online time-and-expense management solution that provides on-demand access to timesheets and expense reports and improves customer relationships for professional service companies. The company is offering a 30-day free trial to let potential customers test xWorkForce.comÂs capabilities before purchasing the monthly service.
A web-based solution with an intuitive interface, xWorkForce.com enables consultants and other service professionals to quickly populate the system and track their billable hours and expenses in nearly real-time from any Internet connection, including wireless devices. With xWorkForce.comÂs on-demand technology, companies with limited technology resources can capitalize on a sophisticated application without managing or maintaining any hardware or software. As a result, professional service firms can focus on their core responsibilities while improving billing accuracy and profitability.
Additionally, xWorkForce.com helps companies further develop their customer relationships. With a unique, Âconsumer viewÂ feature, xWorkForce.com allows service professionals to grant read-only access of project and budget status to clients, proactively engaging clients in the resource management of their own projects and eliminating end-of-project Âsticker shockÂ for invoices.
ÂIn highly competitive professional service industries, having outstanding relationships with your customers is critical to gaining and maintaining an edge over your competition,Â said Brad Dunnington, chief executive office of Avalinx. ÂxWorkForce.comÂs 360-degree budget management brings service providers and their customers to the same table regarding project status and goals, which validates the ongoing worth of service providersÂ work, encourages better communication and fosters more collaborative relationships.Â
Columbus Consulting, Inc., a provider of professional services for systems and business processes in the retail industry, uses xWorkForce.com to track the time and expenses of its 20 consultants throughout the country. With xWorkForce.com, Columbus Consulting has standardized its time-and-expense reporting and has improved the accuracy of its billing processes.
ÂWe used to spend four hours a week reviewing the Excel spreadsheets our consultants turned in, consolidating the data into one large timesheet for each project. xWorkForce.com eliminated this tedious process by providing a centralized database that our consultants can access from wherever theyÂre working. As a result, the data no longer needs to be manipulated, which improves our accounting and gives us more time to focus on our clients,Â said Rick Amari, president of Columbus Consulting, Inc.
The free, 30-day trial allows new subscribers to test drive the fully functional xWorkForce.com before purchase. xWorkForce.com is then offered as a month-to-month service with low monthly costs. Pricing is calculated on a per-user fee and is based on the number of users subscribing to the system. Interested parties can sign-up for the free trial by visiting http://www.xworkforce.com.
