Resource Guru

It is very well suited when different branches of the company reside in different countries or time zones. It allows the project manager to efficiently keep track of the progress of their team members. It reduces the need for intensive calls where the manager asks for an extensive check in and update from each individual person. It also allows the project manager to update tasks and timelines as needed.

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • It isn't quite as user-friendly as I would like. Once you are accustomed to it, it is very useful, but the initial use could be facilitated.
  • One user-friendly calendar interface that displays tasks and deadlines would be nice.
  • A real-time time logging button would be nice, rather than entering hours retroactively.

Alternatives Considered

Resource Guru is the only product of it's kind that I have used regularly. Slack is comparable in allowing communication between teams, but doesn't have nearly the functionality of Resource Guru. Resource Guru is the only product that I am aware of that manages tasks and deadlines between various team members, and can be accessed by all members.

Return on Investment

  • ROI
  • tracking

  • It has made our cross functional team much more productive and efficient.
  • The only negative feature is the slightly complicated user interface. Before a manager was fully introduced to the product, it was not utilized as much as should be.
  • It allowed all details of timelines to be updated easily (automatically), if the deadline is pushed forward or back.
