Online Project Management Software Helps Teams Balance Resources

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - Project Insight, online project management software, is assisting teams with keeping their projects on track during vacation season. With schools out for summer, many resources decide to take some time away from work. Project Insight's powerful resource management capabilities are helping organizations balance their resources' workloads while others are away on holiday.

The graphical displays within the project management software make it easy to effectively monitor the available resources' workloads and balance them accordingly. Many project teams have resources that span across more than just one department and project. Project Insight's resource allocation report can drill down to each project and task from a single view. When project and resource managers can keep an eye on what resource is working on what, teams will be able to turn more projects over efficiently and effectively. A project leader from a major automobile manufacturer said, "Efficiency has been one of the biggest benefits of Project Insight. We're able to do a lot more with fewer resources."

Not only does having robust resource allocation capabilities increase efficiency, but it also improves the planning process by helping executives and project managers to forecast resource and personnel needs far into the future. This insight gives companies a valuable edge against their competitors. The director of the project management office at an interactive agency said, "Before Project Insight, we could see about one week ahead what our resources were working on. Now, we have visibility 90 days ahead."
