why use resource management software for your businessEvery business is dependent on its resources. Whether it’s people, time, equipment or locations, each organisation needs to manage its’ resources effectively to achieve its’ objectives. Especially during challenging times, making every resource as productive as possible is critical to maximising profitability. The good news is that technology such as resource management software can help.

Why use resource management software?

1. Save time

Time is precious, and in more demand than ever. Using resource management software can save you time, with fast, easy-to-use drag and drop scheduling. Add, edit, move and reallocate events with a simple mouse click or move. No more rewriting or reprinting spreadsheets.

Quick resource allocation and ease of updating schedules will save you hours, while the software assistant prevents over-booking and ensures all critical skills are covered. You can spend less time scheduling, do less manual work and reporting, have fewer calls and emails. This will free you up to focus on added value activities.

2. Save money

Have you calculated the cost of a missed appointment? A double-booked location? Wasting people’s time wastes their money. Missed appointments must be rebooked, at added costs. Ensuring the right resources are in the right places at the right time means money is always being spent in the right way.

Are you paying someone to sit still and complete manual paperwork? Resource management software includes automated timesheets, statistics and reports, to ensure your people can be ready when needed.

3. Make fewer errors

With in-built conflict and availability checkers, as well as warnings, resource management software can ensure that you never make planning errors again. No more double-booking or critical skills missed thanks to the helpful scheduling assistant. Automatic notifications and reminders, available on any device, mean that your human resources are always prompted to avoid mistakes and take the correct action.

4. Get More Value

Improved scheduling gives you clear visibility and better utilization of all your resources. Using resource management software, you can quickly access fully-customizable reports on any of your resources. Easily see utilization and other statistical information for your planned resources. View reports online or export them to other tools like Excel, to share across your organization.

Make technology work for you, by scheduling any type of resource or asset, all in one place. Plan all your people, clients, projects, equipment, training, tasks and any other important activities you need to track.

Understand who is working on an event, who it is for and what is needed. Tag people, clients, the work type, needed equipment, order status, payment status and so much more. Then link your software to Outlook, Gmail, Salesforce, Slack, and so many more apps to generate better value for your business through an integrated resource management system.

5. Have Less Stress

wouldn’t want to be less stressed at work? Using resource management software can reduce your stress levels with no more worries about missed bookings. Clear views, direct access and alerts for all users on any device mean fewer worries or confusion. Maximize your resources with clarity.
