OpenAir - Professional Services Automation OpenAir® Professional Services Automation (PSA) software is the key to services excellence: Improve utilization—keep your team on the right projects. Improve cash flow—accelerate billing and collections. Our full suite of on-demand, integrated applications, from timesheets and expense reports to complex project and resource management, requires nothing more than a browser, and supports a variety of mobile devices, including Blackberry.

OpenAir started with a simple vision: that professional services organizations needed a more effective way to manage their key assets, namely their employees and their expertise. Just as ERP systems improved manufacturing operations, software could help service firms and internal service groups operate more effectively and profitably.

Leveraging the Internet
At the same time, the Web was revolutionizing the way companies could offer software solutions. Web-based software, whether delivered as an ASP or installed onsite, represents a dramatic leap ahead of traditional client/server software. It is instantly accessible from anywhere, for easy collaboration among authorized users. There's no software to buy, install, or maintain, so it is fast and affordable to deploy. It's secure and private, and offers state-of-the-art data backup and protection.

Manage resources, projects, knowledge, finances
So OpenAir built a business around its vision, developing a comprehensive suite of Web-native software applications that help PSOs manage their resources, projects, knowledge, and finances. OpenAir quickly earned praise of industry analysts and the attention of key industry players, including IBM, who chose OpenAir as an e-business Partner and xSP Prime Partner.
