Businesses are often faced with stiff challenges in maintaining low project, operational costs and increase their profits. And rightly so!

Sadly, that is not the case always.

Running a profitable enterprise requires a lot of control around procurement, resource utilization, real estate costs, talent, technology costs, project management, travel expenses, marketing and R&D budgets etc.

Each department has their own budget, strategic goals and timelines to meet these goals.

At any given time there are multiple initiatives, projects that are being undertaken by the various functions across the organization involving multiple teams both local and global.
