Project Manager SpaceTec Partners
SpaceTec Partners faced difficulties keeping track of its resource availability, the skill sets of the resources and what projects they were attributed to. Without a resource planning system in place and with a growing team, this was becoming a complex and time consuming process to ensure projects had the correct resources scheduled to it.
Having been recommended to use Retain International by a contact, SpaceTec Partners implemented Retain International’s Web Portal product. The Web Portal product is, as the name suggests, a web-based graphical scheduling system. Displaying information in a clear and concise interface, SpaceTec Partners can easily see the current allocations for all teams and projects. The powerful inbuilt reporting tool allows SpaceTec Partners to analyse utilisation rates and much more.
SpaceTec Partners has been successfully using Retain to schedule the time of 17 resources for over two years.
