The Professional Service Automation (PSA) comes with Power BI and Cortana Intelligence built-in and is totally integrated with Office 365.  The SAAS solution enables project and service driven organizations to identify potential opportunities, submit bids, reach contractual agreements, manage resources, deliver projects on-budget and on-time, record time and expenses, and invoice the customer according to billing arrangements.   With the ability to add-on to the strength of Microsoft Project integration.
