Our current system project management module did not provide into one user interface a clear overview of our projects (in term of status, expense / income recognition, and margins). As a result, the monthly closing of the accounts and reviewing the projects profitability report was often a difficult and manual tasks.
We were recommended by our partners which are using Samooha for their Distribution business. After meeting with Samooha founder and having reviewed their system, we decided to go with Samooha project management module to replace our current system.
This module is fully integrated with Samooha’s Financial and Controlling modules which allow our company to have seamless data flow between the management, accountants and project team members.
