Tracking Staff Availability

GreatSoft’s project planning module includes a robust staff availability tracking feature. This allows managers to quickly assess which team members are available for new projects, ensuring that resources are allocated efficiently. By keeping track of staff availability, organizations can avoid overloading their employees and ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget.

Budgets vs Actuals

A key strength of GreatSoft’s project planning module is its ability to track budgets vs actuals with precision. The module seamlessly integrates with GreatSoft’s timesheets, enabling managers to compare budgeted hours to actual hours worked. This integration provides organizations with a comprehensive view of their project finances, empowering them to make informed decisions to keep projects on track and within budget.

Enhanced Collaboration

Collaboration is key to successful project management, and GreatSoft’s module facilitates this through its collaborative features. Team members can work together seamlessly regardless of their location, thanks to real-time updates, file sharing, task assignment, and commenting on jobs and projects. This level of collaboration not only improves project outcomes but also enhances team morale and satisfaction.

Insightful Dashboards

GreatSoft’s project planning module offers insightful dashboards that provide real-time insights into project progress, resource utilization, and budget status. These dashboards present data in a visually appealing and easy-to-understand format, allowing managers to quickly identify trends and make informed decisions. The interactive nature of the dashboards enables users to drill down into the data for a more detailed analysis, providing a comprehensive view of project performance.
