Resource Scheduling Software Is Much More Than a Calendar

Mark Ballance   by Mark "Time Saving Addict" Ballance - Aug 1, 2014

Who needs another calendar full of appointments, or many calendars that are hard to cross reference with each other, and why is a scheduling solution more that just a calendar with added benefits.

An intuitive interface makes it easy to record all sorts of employee and resource activities, past and future. You can keep track of which employees work well together with detailed histories of company projects. Knowledge like this used to be difficult to ascertain, but today, you can use it to your advantage, assigning compatible minds to the same tasks. You can easily match workers with certain skill sets to complementary projects to ensure quality, and timely completion of projects.

Further, you can stimulate collaboration within your ranks by grouping more people who have never worked together before. This is a duality that many managers don't realize about resource scheduling software. On the one hand; scheduling software can improve efficiency, because you can see which employees create the highest quality projects at the lowest cost. But for a technology company (for example), where innovation is key to long term success, it can be a big advantage to link together employees who rarely collaborate. By bringing together these minds, you create new dynamics that can foster great ideas your team would never think of otherwise. In this way, resource scheduling software isn't just a tool for efficiency, but can become an amazing tool for creativity.

Consider using skills and skill sets to group your employees, staff and other resources by ability, work methods, mind set and personalty types to help find and create the perfect teams.
