Controlled client visibility

Client access to detail is within your control. If your team embeds into client operations directly, you can choose to involve client managers directly in the approval process, by job. Alternatively, you can limit client visibility to invoices alone.

Visibility and access controls

Your client list doesn’t have to be public knowledge. Ensure workers have access to only the customers and jobs they are assigned to, during the time of their assignment.

Approval icon


Not every job has the same approving manager for work. In fact, embedded teams may require approvers from client sites while independent teams have local management. Configure your approval chains however you wish.

Expense receipt icon


In the event that your job requires certain purchases, such as software licenses, simply use the SpringAhead system to track those expenses and include them in your time and materials invoice, with or without markup.

Invoice icon


Use SpringAhead’s time entries to generate client invoices on a regular schedule, based on work performed. If you map purchase orders to projects, you can deduct your use of pre-approved dollars or time as you invoice your clients.
