What is resource management and why should I care?
When people feel inspired, motivated, and supported in their work, they do more work — and that work is significantly less stressful on their overall health and wellbeing.
Do you know how busy your team will be?
Resource management is how you plan, allocate, and optimize your people for projects. Resource planning is essential for project managers and service directors. With good management, you safeguard the delivery of service and ensure your team has a balanced workload.
Resource management software involves features that find the best-suited people to the right projects at the right time. Beyond supporting current projects, resource management apps need to provide insight that helps managers be more efficient in the future.
Problems we face without resource management
Any department with people working on multiple projects will find itself struggling with the following pain points.
Assign resources to multiple projects or Salesforce objects. Resources can be anything like people, equipment, or credits.
Making staffing decisions based on hunches, and gut feeling without quantitative data.
Poor work forecasting
Unable to confidently say how busy their team and service pipeline will be weeks and months into the future.
Spending too much time cobbling together data from separate tools and spreadsheets.
Not properly equipped to use past data to improve the accuracy of future work and service efficiency.
No solution fits
Finding other resource planning solutions too expensive, overblown, or inflexible for their needs.
