Skilled resources are scarce and expensive, making it essential to allocate them effectively without wasting them. Resource management software helps plan resources, analyze capacities, and create scenarios (forecasts) across multiple projects and teams. With Planforge, project managers get an always up-to-date overview of all relevant resources throughout the complete project life cycle.
Planforge integrates resource management throughout the entire project life cycle. From built-in resource planning in sprint boards and swim-lanes, over scenario planning to real-time resource allocation and utilization views.
Plan your resources upfront and avoid any conflicts and overloads before they happen
View resource allocation and detect dependencies preemptively by displaying your team's workload
Use sprint planning for resource allocation thanks to Planforge's hybrid approach to PPM
Thanks to Planforge, we are finally able to put work packages together without overloading our resources. In addition, due to the simple project planning we found out very quickly that we were lacking the resources for three or four projects that we had initially intended to start this year.

Planforge allows you to plan not only at individual resource level, but also at team level.
By assigning teams early on, project managers can plan ahead and specify individual resources later as required.
How does it work?
Suppose planning an IT project with an estimated effort of 1000 hours. You can assign a team of ten developers and four software testers without actually assigning named resources.
The workload gets distributed across all available team members, which is also reflected in Planforge's advanced resource utilization views. Plan ahead at team level, even before individual resources are assigned, and identify realistic resource demand from the outset.
Identify available resources and use them to respond to open customer inquiries or problem reports faster.
Detect upcoming conflicts, overloads, and absences with our highly visual utilization analysis and histogram.
