Set consistent standards
Dayshape helps your firm to maintain consistent quality across engagements by allowing you to mandate the performance metrics that must be adhered to, and flagging when these standards are not met.
Rely on automated email alerts and in-system notifications to keep you informed of project status, and flag the issues taking engagements off-plan. Project controls help to maintain your firm’s quality, financial and governance standards.
Ensure you’re following compliance and security protocol by adding restrictions to resources and stop them being assigned specific work. Dayshape also keeps an audit trail of who’s worked on projects for full transparency and audit purposes.
Full audit trail
Full audit trails are available for every engagement so you can see who has made changes, and when. Engagements can be “rewound” to any time in the past, facilitating further analysis and continuous improvement.
