Trivaeo Resource Management is all about managing resources in a business. This software solution bridges project management and eHuman Resources Management allowing a company to intelligently apply its internal and external resources to jobs against a schedule.
Resource Manager uses notifications, My World and workflows to ensure no assigned jobs can be forgotten
Timesheets may be submitted against either project 'tasks' or resource manager 'jobs' delivering enhanced enterprise flexibility on how to blend resource management with Project Management and eHR
Companies should consider using Trivaeo Resource Management alongside Project Management and eHuman Resources. Even then it is functional and capable and is an excellent stepping-stone into the realms of Enterprise Resource Planning without diving into great complexity or setup challenges. It can be used to both plan (activities, costs and skills) activities as well as schedule resources and its ability to look at resources departmentally will help even smaller organisations to tap into their available resources more effectively. Most employees in any organisation have the ability to appear 'busy' at any point tested by their leadership team. Resource Manager provides sureity for an organisation that its resources are being used to their greatest economic potential and it allows greater granularity in tracking cost performance too across project tasks as well as resource managed jobs through its ability to link seamlessly to submitted employee or self-service user timesheets.
Resource Management is all about using your companys' resources in the most efficient way possible. It enables your business to fully utiliise its staff in addressing the demands on your business. In using it you may also spot areas where you have an overabundance of resources at certain skills. When used effectively with scheduling it also allows you to begin the process of forecasting your work, projects and activities based on the future 'availability' of your resources. During the 'activities' associated with any assigned 'job' your resources can submit timesheets that can be used to trigger achievements in projects or trigger invoicing and billing activities with your clients too. The submitted timesheets provide valuable insights to your business on the 'actual' time taken to complete specific 'activities' which will improve your business planning, costings and quotations process. Resource Management highlights include;
Resource Management works hand in hand with eHuman Resources Management by bringing the skills of your employees to your front line. For each activity you can define as many skill levels as you like, each with its own hourly, daily, monthly or overtime rates. When scheduling your resources to do 'jobs' for your business the tasks are assigned easily only to those employees that have the skills to achieve them. In some cases Trivaeo has taken this even further, allowing the automatic routing of 'jobs' based on 'requested information' automation so that 'jobs' are routed based on skill and availaibliity to your employees. If you'd like more information about this form of business 'precision' then please contact us as it is a specialist solution. It is however built entirely on eHR and Resource Management combined.
Readily plan your use of resources across departments and link your employees with their underlying skills and skill levels (both technical and personal skills), then use drag and drop features to move around their jobs for the day/week/month as your priorities change
For each activity in your business you may create as many levels of held-skills as you need. Each may have its own daily, monthly, hourly or overtime rates. This may be used in conjunction with skills in eHR or stand-alone too. With each activity and its skill level you can determine the typical duration of each activity based on the skill level held which results in much better cost adherence.
Jobs accepted by each target employee are automatically added to their calendar and they receive notifications of new jobs as they are created and assigned. No more of the "I didn't see the email telling me I was needed on site today!" excuses!

Resource Management is one of those areas in ERP, Enterprise Resource Planning, that your company could really go to town on. It's an area that some businesses utilise extremely heavily and others cope with basic use only where needed to allocate specific key jobs. Trivaeo has tried to find a balance between usability and effectiveness so that our Resource Manager is both easy to use as well as being a tool that truly helps a business allocate its resources efficiently. Don't get me wrong, there is some incredible functionality hidden away in this application that won't remarkably affect a casual user but will absolutely delight a power user. For example, it uses skills and skill levels in eHR if you have that part of the Suite. It uses every employees calendar by default, it uses the notifications and alerts system. It supports drag and drop of planned jobs in the overall calendar, it supports the mapping of employee skills to the available resources for a job your are planning. It warns you if you attempt to schedule a job that overlaps an employee who is away on holiday (or planning to be!), it helps you plan costings. It works alongside your assets if you use that element of the suite so not only human resources, but tangible resources like Plant Equipment, Rooms, Facilities and so on can be used and booked out in suppport of an assigned job. It is an area of our Suite that brings much of its together, even though many users will find it so intuitive that they don't even notice how it links with everything else. That said, it is capable of working stand-alone too if that's all that your business needs.
