Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation helps you to win and deliver projects on time and within budget, while optimizing resource usage. The application has pricing, sales, resourcing, time and expense, and invoicing management capabilities, along with some project task and work breakdown structure (WBS) functionality. The product team's investments for this release and the next will focus on providing a modular offering for organizations with project-based services. This offering will seamlessly bring together capabilities across Microsoft Project, Project Service Automation, and the Service Industries module in Dynamics 365 Finance to enable a frictionless and functionally rich Quote to Cash for projects.
Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation currently takes advantage of Microsoft Power Platform and Common Data Service to help our customers connect and build end-to-end business solutions for project organizations by using rich pricing, costing, and resource management experiences. With Microsoft Project replatforming to Common Data Service, we'll be uniquely positioned to deliver a competitive set of project-planning and task-scheduling capabilities. Our customers will be able to deliver successful projects with this expanded project management functionality.
The Service Industries module in Dynamics 365 Finance delivers project accounting, with revenue recognition and customer-facing invoicing that takes advantage of date-effective exchange rates and a rich sales-tax feature set. Our customers will be able to better manage invoicing, cash flow, and project accounting by using this expanded financial capability brought into our solution.
Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation has evolved into Dynamics 365 Project Operations. For more information, see Project Service Automation Transition.
