Resource and skill management
Resource management (RM) based on capacity, roles and skills enables you to put together the best team for your project
You always have an overview of the skills available in your team or department - but also which ones will be important to your company in future. The same goes for your team's workloads. Taken together, these details enable your HR department to ensure strategically-oriented staff planning and training programs for your people. And it also helps you see what skills you yourself need to shine in the future. Plus: you get a graphical chart of your resource utilization for a quick overview of your team members' workloads, helping you make well-founded decisions about current and future projects.
The staff planner saves you a lot of time on coordination between the project and line organizations because it shows you whether the line department has exactly the resources you need and make them available to you.
Resource management across the whole organization gives you an overview of all the resources, including their capacities and skills, available throughout the company - in real time.
That enables you to assess the feasibility of new projects - quickly and based on facts - which in turn helps you increase the success rate of your projects. You can also see where potential overloads could arise, which lets you avoid planning errors from both the staff and financial perspectives. As a result, you protect your resources, work more sustainably, and plan more accurately. Along with helping to make your project execution more efficient, this also increases the confidence your customers have in you as you can make well-founded assessments.
With the "My team's tasks" function, you always know what your team members are working on and how their workload looks. That helps you detect overloads in good time and take corrective action.
The "Skills in my department" function gives you a quick and easy overview of the skills your staff are bringing to your department so you can see which skills are most in demand. That makes it easier for you to plan with the available resources.
The "Approve vacation" function enables you to manage and approve vacation requests. It also shows you if a vacation conflicts with a project.
