How much capacity is available? Who is available to do the job? For many professional services firms capacity and utilization are key. Exact Online Project Management provides a visual overview of availability capacity and visibility into the capacity forecast to improve (billable) utilization. You can easily (re)-schedule work using drag & drop. Based on great feedback from our customers, we’ve decided to further enhance our capacity planning engine. The following enhancements are planned for this year:
One of our key priorities this year is to facilitate recurring planning. We want to make it easier for companies to plan activities that recur. For example, making it easy to plan a consultant for 2 days per week for next 3 months. Or, making it easy to schedule regular weekly project meetings.
Also based on customer feedback, as from Q3 we will visualize national holidays in the capacity planning. Available capacity is reduced on national holidays and your capacity forecast will show capacity excluding national holidays.
Improvements to Time Entry
As from Q3 we will also facilitate time entry directly from your personal planning. Saving time for professionals by copying planned activities into your timesheet.
