Resource Guru is a very useful software to efficiently use our resources in our team. We can easily book the available resources for the project in hand according to the skills that a resource has. We can get a view of when a resource is available so that we can schedule accordingly without having complications. We can manage resources, projects, and client details. The schedule section gives us a bird's-eye view of our resource allocation for a given week/month.
  • We can color by client, project, booker for clear picture.
  • There are filters to select particular resources for need of our event.
  • We can easily see booked and free time.
  • They can have integration with MS teams, zoom, etc
  • Can provide facility to send email to the group
  • Can provide facility to arrange events according to priority
We can efficiently use available resources by scheduling them on resource Guru for the successful completion of a project. We can check resource, project, and client-wise reports to see statistics. Sometimes it feels like we are micromanaging the things that can have a negative impact on the overall team, they can do integration with advanced communication tools like teams and zoom to make things easy.
  • We can manage events with color combinations.
  • User interface is good.
  • Can keep accurate track of available resources.

  • It's easy to assign work to the resources.
  • Resources can be filtered with various criteria as per the project needs.
  • We get clear picture of assigned tasks and hence project progress.
Other software are not very good when we need to check which resource spent how much time on which project, we can use this single tool for resource management as well as event scheduling. At the end of the year, we can evaluate resources based on who worked on which technology and see how a particular resource performs so that we can plan things accordingly.

A Scheduling Guru

I have used Resource Guru for resource management at my current workplace for about two years now. It has helped me and my team to avoid missing deadlines and properly track projects and meetings. It's a quite simple software and becoming a guru with it is a task of a few hours of practice. Over time we have managed to streamline all our meetings rooms and schedules in this single resource allocation tool.
  • Strikes a perfect balance between detail and simplicity
  • integrates with multiple software from Excel to Office365
  • Has the SSO mode to enforce password policy and for improved security
  • lacks real-time logging button
Resource Guru has been a huge time-saver all through and now stale schedule mails are a thing of the past. We are in the line of delivering IT solutions and their maintenance. I'm in charge of developing, maintaining and installing WAN and LAN network software for clients and therefore missing an appointment or a meeting would translate to losing a client. With Resource Guru I have all workloads in the waiting list under total control.
  • time off planning for vacations
  • Waiting list
  • Resource utilization monitor

Resource Guru is being used across departments in my company. It is used to manage communication, deadlines, and working hours between the software developers, testers, and product managers. It allows a cross functional team to work between countries and time zones, which would be much more difficult without this tracking system. It is particularly helpful for the project management team!
  • Task tracking: allows user to input tasks which may be marked off as finished by other members of the team.
  • Time tracking: allows users to log the amount of time spent on particular tasks.
  • Cross team management: allows users from different locations and time zones to view the same page and relevant tasks.
  • 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.
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.

  • 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.
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.
