Staff Planning and Resource Management

An effective resource planning tool allows Managers to ensure they have the right staff available at the right time on their projects. Sage Coretime helps minimises risk on your projects by allowing Managers responsible for allocating staff to plan resources effectively and ensure projects run to plan.

Easy to use, visual planning tool.

The Sage Coretime Staff Planner is a module which uses a simple wall planner type interface to allow staff to be allocated to projects as soon as they are agreed with clients which can then be updated as project needs change. By using a centralised system of pre-entered client, project and employee details, the required resources can be allocated to projects with ease. Once staff are assigned to projects and projects commence, staff log time against the scheduled tasks. Project Managers and other Staff Schedulers are then able to review time recorded on projects as they are updated.
 
The Sage Coretime Staff Planner module is designed:

For Management

  • Schedule staff to work on different clients
  • Schedule staff to work on different projects or project stages.
  • Allocate staff to different tasks.
  • Schedule time allocated by day, half day (am or pm) or hourly.
  • Schedule multiple tasks for the same day or against relevant stages or phases. 
     

For Staff

  • Review work scheduled for staff to complete.
  • Enter time against scheduled tasks.
  • Check future work scheduled at a glance.
 

Efficient resource planning.

The Staff Planner module is very effective for managing staff allocation across different projects. Staff management is made easy by having access to all the critical staff and project details to allow informed decisions on choice of resources to be made. It saves time and money by allowing Managers to gain an overview of staff availability and use data to plan and optimise resources on their projects. It improves efficiency by ensuring staff are clear about their role on projects and the scheduled time allocated against tasks which they need to complete.
 

Improved visibility of resources.

Reports are available by means of the Employee / Staff Planner Report. This report shows the planned hours against actual worked hours allowing differences between planned and actual to be clearly identified. The data can be filtered by employee or by project to allow easy analysis. 
The Staff Planner is a fully integrated option for Sage Coretime. It is an effective tool which helps ensure Project Managers have the right resource available on their projects at the right time.
