Spud Software releases PAC Manager, their customizable project and cost management system.

Do your employees know what's expected of them and what's required to get the job done? Is your current workflow easy to use and understand? Do you have project management software that is customized to your company's unique needs?

If you answered "No" to any of the questions above, Spud Software has the solution for you.

We are proud to announce the release of our PAC Manager project and cost management software solution. This software, which has been running Spud Software's own processes for over 20 years, is a customizable workflow system that will not only identify the work to do, but when it needs to be done. This allows your employees to work toward achievable goals and enables them to be more successful and productive.

PAC Manager is not a standard off-the-shelf or SaaS solution. Most off-the-shelf systems look appealing at first, but many companies quickly find out the limitations of using a boxed solution as their users begin sidestepping processes that just don’t work.

"Everyone knows that streamlining processes and cutting out as much wasted effort as possible is an ongoing battle that in itself drains resources, distracts the team from their core responsibilities and usually gets put at the bottom of the to-do list," said Derek Sommer, Spud Software's founder and CEO.

Unlike boxed solutions, PAC Manager is not confined to a finite list of options that in time forces your business to fit around its limitations. PAC Manager is designed to your specific processes, meaning it works the way you and your team work. 

Part of the process of customizing PAC Manager to your unique business is the initial discovery phase where we learn about who you are and how your business works. During this process, we develop detailed flowcharts and a design specification document to identify areas where PAC Manager may need to be modified to make your processes easier and more efficient for your team.
 
Of course, PAC Manager is a complete system from the start, so you can use it without customizations, or we can make desired changes in phases to best fit your budget and business.

Included in the core functionality of PAC Manager are:

  • Inventory Management
  • Time Tracking
  • Ticket Logging
  • Expense Tracking
  • Project Tracking
  • Scheduling
  • Asset Tracking
  • Tracking Prospects & Sales Leads
  • Sales Forecasting
  • Process Control
  • Call Center Tracking
  • Dashboard Reporting
  • Secure File Sharing

Also included  is hosting, SSL encryption, and maintenance. We handle any necessary security updates or hosting server upkeep to allow you to focus on what matters most – your business.

Another powerful aspect of PAC Manager is that it can integrate with existing tools, making it a robust solution for all of your business needs. Included in our integration capabilities are: Quickbooks, Salesforce, Gmail, DocuSign, Paychex, ADP, Mailchimp, SharePoint, Dropbox, custom APIs and more. 
 
"Spud can minimize the effort needed to get your business more efficient. Our process for reviewing your business and putting together a strategy to match your time and budget requirements is effective and affordable," said Sommer.

While PAC Manager is designed to be an easy-to-use, complete workflow solution for your business, we understand that you may have questions about how your system works. That’s why we include call center support via phone, email and online chat with every purchase. Our call center support staff is located in the same room as our developers, business analysts and project managers, so they know your product and can get you the answers you need.  For our customers who are a little more “do-it-yourself”, PAC Manager also includes training videos and documentation.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover."
