Resource project management – take control of your resources

“The problem with using basic software, like MS Project, is that it only allows you to manage one project at a time, so you can’t see conflict across all projects and resource. The Asta Powerproject suite is a programme and project tool which allows us to see all pipeline and live projects at any one time and manage resource more effectively across them all.”Robert Douglass – Project Systems Manager – Denbighshire County Council

Combine effective resource management and efficient project management with the Asta Powerproject suite

Asta Powerproject gives you the tools to take a proactive approach to managing your resourcing issues, whatever the size of your business or the types of resources you are dealing with.

Asta Powerproject enables you to:

  • Allocate the most appropriate resources to each job
  • Compare actuals against planned
  • Avoid resourcing bottlenecks with effective capacity planning

Does your company need to focus on Time & Resource Management?

To assess whether your organisation may have a requirement for a more formal approach to resource management, consider these questions:

  • Can I obtain a complete, up to date and accurate view of all our projects whenever I need it myself or receive a board request?
  • Do I know exactly what projects all our key people are working on and to what extent?
  • Can I plan our resourcing needs ahead of time and consider different possible scenarios to help me make decisions?
  • Is there a simple way to aggregate the project and resourcing records and plans of our different departments or lines of business?
  • Can I quickly identify available people for future or potential projects who have the appropriate skills, are in the right place, carry feasible costs and who will have enough time free when they are needed?
  • Am I sure that every person in our organisation is appropriately busy, used to best advantage and never over-committed or at a loose end?
  • Are we managing the risks around our resources as well as we could, with a clear view as to what would happen on our projects if key resources became unavailable or delays on one project impacted the resourcing of another?
  • Is the billing or the people cost management on our projects perfectly complete and accurate, so we never have hidden cost surprises or miss opportunities for revenue?
