Polaris Creates a New Category of Professional Services Automation

Introduces The World’s First Self-driving PSA, Delivering More Results with Less Hassle.

Redwood City, CA – October 28, 2020.  – The Polaris PSA solution launched today, creating a new category of Self-driving PSA. For the first time, professional services leaders have a solution that can do the heavy lifting, analyzing real-time data, and delivering live recommendations on the best possible choices to decide from.

Whether you are a leader focused on practices, clients, resources, projects, or finances, Polaris’ MissionControl center gives you a view of what’s critical to your success. It’s customized to your role, yet operates off a common shared data platform, with 100% accurate and consistent data. That means there are no data silos, helping you understand the whole business and operate in harmony across groups.

The Polaris SmartBeats system continuously harvests data from users and systems to deliver real-time visibility into the organization’s work. These real-time insights lead to more agile responses, and more rapidly getting and keeping resources, projects, and finances on-track and optimized. 

Polaris is created by the team at Replicon, the Time Intelligence company. Replicon has over 25 years of industry leadership in enterprise time tracking, and supports thousands of customers across 70 countries, and will now leverage that experience in the world of professional services.

“There’s a recurring theme across the thousands of services customers we work with, which is that they are falling short of their overall profit potential, with undiscovered opportunities in bidding, utilization, expenses, and billing,” said Raj Narayanaswamy, co-CEO of Replicon, Inc. the company behind Polaris. “We created the Polaris Self-driving PSA Solution to solve this problem so that firms can make better decisions, based on a real-time, accurate, holistic view of their total business across practices, clients, resources, projects and roles.”
