Project Business Automation (PBA) is a category of business systems that are designed to integrate and automate the business processes of project-based companies. So if your company is in a project driven industry - for example construction, engineering or professional services - where you work on projects that are paid for by your customers, then having a PBA system is a must.

In this interview, Cornelius Fichtner and Matt Mong of discuss the basics of PBA: What it is, and what it isn't. (For example, an ERP is not a PBA system). You'll come out with a improved understanding of the issues that project-driven companies face ("Spreadsheets! Spreadsheets everywhere!") and how project business automation can help your projects financials, project operations and project insight.

This episode was recorded live and, as usual, we got some insightful questions and comments from the audience!
