Hello There,

Being a project manager for my company my work is to manage our projects across the world. With a huge resource pool like ours it is really troublesome for me to schedule them. So i wanted some kind of an automated program that would list down all my resources at one place and would let me schedule them then & there. Manual scheduling is just not working for me and is mistake prone. Can someone suggest some kind of software that would do the above mention things along with maintaining well organized and detailed financial and utilization reports of the resources. Not to mention that the software should be smart enough to warn me if i were booking a resource that is already booked by someone. Thanks in advance, it would be really helpful to hear from you all.

Hey Nancy,

I have been using a resource management software to manage my resources. It is eResource Scheduler, the software efficiently manage, plan & schedule my resources which are located remotely. The software has detailed reporting features, time sheet management, their cutting edge drag & drop functionality that allows user to drag and drop the bookings from one resource to other. If you were to take my advice, go for the trial and then see if the software is worth using or not.

Be Blessed

Saviom Resource Planning software has great visualisation capabilities containing drag and drop functionalities that are easy to use. It also has the ability to schedule the same resource onto multiple projects at a time and also move bookings around from resource to resource.

I would also suggest you to go with eResource Scheduler which is a good way to schedule and manage your resource and project. The software has various modules with which you would have no hassles in scheduling your resources to different projects. The software also offer other modules such as time sheet management, utilization reports, forecasting reports etc. that makes it a complete resource planning software. I think they offer a full functional free trial as well so that people can get accustomed to the program.
