With Tenrox revenue manager, they can automate the revenue recognition process in the cloud with real-time dashboards and reporting for continual revenue recognition monitoring.

Tenrox, the only true workflow-driven project and service delivery solution for today’s globally dispersed project workforce, announced the availability of a comprehensive revenue manager benefitting companies with the accurate calculation and reporting of revenue for data integrity, real-time global visibility and stronger compliant processes. 2011 R3 release also includes the Salesforce.com Quick Connect Technology integration allowing data to be easily mapped, shared and exchanged between Salesforce.com and Tenrox. 2011 R3 offers several other valuable updates such as ad-hoc chart reports and support for Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010.

“Tenrox 2011 R3 has been focused around developing the most advanced cloud-based revenue management tool available. The module’s main purpose is to address the revenue recognition void within existing ERP and accounting programs whereby companies can only track invoiced actuals by using spreadsheets or other custom-developed software that isn't integrated with their core accounting and project management/professional services automation system. With Tenrox revenue manager, they can automate the revenue recognition process in the cloud with real-time dashboards and reporting for continual revenue recognition monitoring,” explained Rafat Hilal, Vice President of Research and Development, Tenrox.

“After reviewing several PSA solutions, we could not find one that fully met our revenue management requirements. We collaborated with Tenrox on the development of the Tenrox Revenue Manager module. We’re excited about implementing this tool since it addresses all our revenue management needs,” explained Brian Cohen, Contract Manager, RL Solutions.

New Features in Tenrox 2011 R3:
Revenue Manager
Tenrox Revenue Manager facilitates the work of controllers and project managers by removing the need for complex spreadsheets, error-prone journal entries and manual processes. Project managers will appreciate that they can now associate the appropriate WIP (work in progress) accounts for all their project billing including time, expenses and charges to bridge the gap between project management and financial reporting. Controllers will value its ability to obtain an accurate calculation and reporting of revenue including instant adjustments when project milestones and actuals are invoiced.

Recognition rules can be setup to manage different revenue types such as software subscription, maintenance contract, software and hardware product implementation, and milestone based projects.

Revenue Manager tracks invoicing and revenue recognition independently and automatically associates transactions to the proper deferred revenue or actual revenue accounts, based on the transaction type. It also provides financial managers with line-item visibility and detailed reports to support internal and regulatory compliance requirements as well as higher accuracy by ensuring the proper review, approval and execution of the revenue that is due to be recognized.

Salesforce.com Quick Connect Technology
With Tenrox’s Quick Connect Technology there are no limits to the types of data that can be mapped, sent to and retrieved from Salesforce.com. This new integration technology provides a complete, 360-degree, real-time view of project demand, resource capacity and utilization as well as project progress. It is convenient for forecasting and project demand management throughout the entire sales process.

Tenrox-Salesforce.com Quick Connect integration technology offers a number of notable new features and improvements such as a simplified, user controlled configuration process. This results in streamlined implementation, updates and upgrades (since no coding or alteration of the core framework is required) and allows users to easily tailor the Tenrox Salesforce.com connector to their specific needs.

The range of data that can be exchanged and dynamically mapped between Tenrox and Saleforce.com has been greatly expanded. In addition to KPIs, Salesforce.com queries can obtain data such as available resources, bookings, work types, tasks, project updates, billing information and expense details allowing data to be easily shared and exchanged between salesforce.com and Tenrox Cloud PSA.

Ad-hoc Chart Reports
The Tenrox Ad-hoc Reporting tool has been enhanced to offer real-time, drillable charts.
