Enhancing our internal project budgeting capabilities



SafoBudget became a reality due to the fact that our agency had a need to tie direct budget data to our project management information that existed in two entirely different systems. 

As we started looking at ways in which we could streamline our budgetary process to better communicate out to our clients, we quickly discovered that we needed to tie our day-to-day project management tools to our time-tracking processes and invoicing tools.

As we began to build out the necessary pieces we discovered that we were on to something that would not only benefit ourselves but had the potential of benefiting many others with similar circumstances. This lead to a more formal specification and the move to define a real scalable product that we could provide other companies.
