For Your Success
Many professional service organisations do not have personnel scheduling software that provides a proper overview of their capacity situation more than a month ahead, making resource or engagement planning a near impossible task.
Don’t base your capacity planning on guess work - by utilising Deltek People Planner, available stand alone or fully integrated with Deltek Maconomy, you can maximise staff utilisation and improve your resource management efficiency.
Too many firms are either working with old personnel scheduling software systems or use individual spreadsheets for compiling crucial data. Inevitably this means that partners and key decision makers lack a cross-departmental, company-wide overview of engagements with clients and available resources.
This causes bottlenecks, unnecessary use of contractors and idle resources in the longer term.
In our experience, only around 20 percent of professional service organisations actually recognise and use resource management (RM) as a high-value, stand-alone discipline in its own right - which is surprising given that the management of resources is, by definition, professional service organisations’ raison d’etre.
Our calculations show that if a company operates a 100-man business and is able to capture and bill just one extra billable hour per month from each employee, it can boost the bottom line by £115,000 a year.
The basic equation that defines business success is simple: optimising people skills = increased recoverability, and ultimately, profitability. Using flexible personnel scheduling software ensures you are able to efficiently plan work and resources - essentially packing more work into the schedule - increasing annual revenue per billable employee.
Enterprise Resource management software monitors availability, load, utilisation and revenue across all employees, providing a framework within which professional services organisations can easily and effectively plan, implement and deploy their people skills.
With integrated personnel planning software, managers can easily gain insight into all scheduling activity across your organisation. They can then use the data to create accurate, achievable plans that consider and balance project budgets, internal and external resource needs, time frames and available capacity.
Forward thinking firms are using RM today to ensure optimum recoverability and profitability. Contact us to learn how Deltek resource scheduling software can help you optimise resources, automate schedules and improve pipeline capacity.
