Resource and project managers spend a great deal of time in communicating the need and availability of engineers suitable for their project work. Days will be wasted moving back and forth with resource managers searching through existing excel sheets and interacting with other managers and associates to see if such a resource is available or even existent within the company. And when an engineer is found, what if he/she decides to take time off? In that case the resource manager will again have to search for another staff member who will be able to fit the fixed criteria meaning additional loss of time and output. A lot of the time engineering firms end up hiring new resources in order to save time despite the already available engineers within the company. What are the solutions that either large or small engineering firms can look towards in order to resolve such problems?
The solutions can be found in SAVIOM Resource Scheduling software (Version 7.0) which is sophisticated yet easy to use software that will enable you to see where your staff costs can be minimised and employee output maximised. Saviom Resource Scheduling software is a solution that creates enterprise wide visibility updating its resource information, ranging from availability, skill and physical location.
Availability is clearly visible allowing visibility for who is vacant for what job. Information such as skill, training, departmental position, experience and any other desired material is also given, helping managers in their selection process.
Another crucial piece of information that should be known is the location of the resource. Managers often assume that the engineers to pick and choose for project work are confined within the four-corners of the office location. However, by having a wide visibility of all resources we don’t have to be limited to these constraints meaning optimum utilisation of engineers across the organisation.
Based on the demand and supply of engineering resources, Saviom Resource Scheduling software also accurately forecast an excess and shortfall of a specific type of resources based on skill, role, department, team, location etc. This is crucial for hiring the right number of engineers with the right capabilities at the right time. It also becomes imperative for retraining the current workforce. This facility is crucial for an organisation to respond quickly to changing market conditions.
SAVIOM is a market leader in Resource Scheduling Software. This software is quite affordable and easy to use.
