Better Resource Planning
Timewatch® resource planning solutions are configurable and customizable, so they can set up to suit any resource scheduling requirement.
Viewing multiple resources is a must-have for resource planners as they bring instant visibility of everyone’s schedules and their availability. With views configurable by any resource attribute, planners can locate the exact set of resources needed. Resource planners can search, sort, and filter resources on any attribute, including availability. Rapid access to resource availability helps schedulers to make better, more informed decisions faster. Better scheduling not only saves schedulers time, but it also allows schedulers to utilize the organization’s resources more efficiently†.
Resource planners need to know that the ‘whitespace’ in a calendar is genuinely free. Often employees also schedule their own time in systems such as Outlook, which can lead to conflicts, errors, and wasted time. Timewatch® resource planning systems can seamlessly sync with Outlook, ensuring planners can see time employees book in Outlook, and also ensuring end users can see bookings planners have made for them in Timewatch. With absolute trust in the accuracy of resources’ schedules, planners can dramatically increase employee utilization rates†.

There is a lot more to resource planning perfection: conflict management, custom fields, Outlook sync, configurability, security, reporting, etc. Your organization may not need all or even any of these features today, but you can add them as you need them. The crucial takeaways are that Timewatch® systems are explicitly designed for resource planning and will increase the speed and accuracy of your planning processes, decrease stress, and raise the attainable level of utilization of your resources.
