Utilization report is a 2 in 1 report that provides resource utilization and availability data at different levels (organization, resource, team, office, project etc.). It facilitates load balancing by identifying under & over utilized resources across organization.
There are several formats to choose from and report can be viewed in multiple units (Hours, %, FTE, Standard Days) and views (Daily, Weekly, Monthly etc.). Graphs make it easy to analyse data.
Planned and actual utilization or availability can be viewed side by side for easy comparison and analysis. Data is colour coded for easy identification of important information.
Resource Gap report compares resource requirements and allocations and highlights resource shortages and excess at different levels within a project. It helps in ensuring that project is adequately staffed at all times.
Gap report is color coded (configurable) and thus helps in identifying resource shortage and excess at different levels of project. This gives a simple but obvious visual clue of resource imbalance.
Gap report can be organized by different formats and can be viewed in multiple units (Std Days, Hours and FTE) and views (Days, Weeks, Months etc.) to get a complete picture of resource assignment and shortages on projects.
Financial report shows financial aspect of scheduling resources on different projects and its impact on organization’s bottom line. It reports on planned & actual resource cost, revenue and profit at organizational, project and other levels.

Financial report provides details of actual as well as planned cost and revenue. This data can be viewed in different views (daily, weekly, monthly etc.) and can be organized by different options for better understanding and analysis.
Forecasting report is a high level report that compares resource capacity vs demand and highlights when and where resource shortage or excess will occur. Color coding helps in easily identifying resources shortages.
With the help of information provided in forecasting report, organizations prepare accurate hiring plans to ensure that resources with right skills are staffed and available according to short, medium and long term project requirements.
Forecasting report can be organized by different formats and can be viewed in different units (Std Days, Hours and FTE) and views (Days, Weeks, Months etc.) for in depth analysis of what type of resources are required and in which office / location .
Cost and Revenue screen allows users to add project cost / expense and revenue against different custom defined categories. This data is included in financial reports to provide complete picture of project financials.
Custom cost and revenue categories can be defined to allow proper capturing of every possible project expense and revenue.
Cost and revenue data can be easily filtered using different parameters and can be viewed by projects – categories OR categories – projects.
Resource screen lists all the resources of organization on one screen and allows adding / importing more resources and editing / maintaining profiles of existing resources. This facilitates accurate profiling of resources which leads to identifying and scheduling right resources on projects.
Apart from basic information, administrators can define custom attributes to capture all required information about resources such as Skills, Certificates, Education, Experience etc. This facilitates accurate profiling of resources.
Users can easily filter and identify resources using custom attributes (E.g. Skills, Language etc.) and standard groupings (Role, Team, Office, Manager etc.) and can organize results by different options for better management and ease of use.
Project Screen lists all projects on one screen and allows adding / importing more projects in the system. Users can capture all project information using basic & configurable fields. Projects can be defined ‘Billable’ with project level billing rate and notes sections help in capturing text information.
Project managers can submit what type of resources are required on project along with required role, effort and dates. This information is used for scheduling resources and generating Gap report.
Tasks can be added manually or can be imported from MS Project file. Tasks help in scheduling resources at task level and also in organizing scheduling data and reports by Project – Task. This helps in scheduling resources in detail.
