Comments: Whilst it Guru is a promising, flexible and easy to use product it really is just bare bones at the moment and they have failed to deliver any additional functionality since launch despite increasing pricing. The forums are filled with requests and suggestions for highly useful add-ons and improvements that always receive the same answer "It's on the road map but we are working on other aspects of development". However, there have been no new releases and even the highly anticipated Vacation and Leave function slated for October 2015 has not actually been delivered. In fact the only thing that has changed is a change in pricing model that has upped the cost of the product. So, to conclude, even though Resource Guru has great potential the increased cost combined with a complete lack of development and capacity for integration make it a waste of time and money. Sad really because conceptually it is a fantastic product.

Thanks for the review Ossian! While I understand your frustration at the low frequency of new feature releases recently I'd like to correct you on a few things. It's not true that we have failed to deliver anything since launch¿for more information on our product updates you can go to the "Product Updates" section of our blog http://blog.resourceguruapp.com/category/product-updates/. We are sorry that our leave management feature is not yet live but it is a large and complex upgrade to Resource Guru and we want to ensure it is all perfect before we release it. We hate the idea of our users doing our testing for us.

Although we haven't directly integrated with any apps yet, we have developed webhooks (found in your account settings) which deliver realtime updates enabling you to create many DIY integrations using services like Zapier. We also have an advanced API (more details can be found at https://developers.resourceguruapp.com/). We want to wait until the product is slightly more evolved before we start working on integrations and the work we've done to date will put us in a very good position to do so when the time comes.

Lastly, I noticed that you only gave our customer support 2 stars. We pride ourselves on giving excellent customer support to all our customers and the team will be very disappointed to hear this. Apart from reading comments about features being on the roadmap (while you may find this frustrating, we are only trying to be honest and not make promises we can't keep), was there anything else about our customer service that you found inadequate?

Once again, thanks for the review and I hope we can bring a smile to your face in the future as we release more features.

Pros: That you can easily move jobs around if they need to change and can book off holiday time and meeting time so that you don't overbook yourself.

Cons: The waiting time bit could be better if time is overbooked - doesn't allow for different lengths of working days.

Hi Nikki,

Thanks for sharing your review of Resource Guru! I wanted to let you know that you can most definitely customise the availability of each of your resources on a daily basis - not every day has to have the same availability.

You can set resources normal availability (which is the availability which repeats on a weekly basis) and you can also create availability exceptions if you need to make a temporary change to someone's normal availability.

You might find this article on resource availability useful https://help.resourceguruapp.com/customer/portal/articles/2162590

I hope this helps, but please get in touch if you have any questions. We're always happy to help!

Thanks,
Kat

Pros: The product is easy to use and allows the administrator to manage teams, plan and review previous activities.

It can be used for recording or planning and gives a level of visibility that is lacking in a number of products.

Although the team are constantly looking at ways to improve the product, it never strays away from its core and prime functionality. Many products try to grow into a bigger, wider space and lose the key elements that attracted customers to the product in the first place.

A customer of ours was so impressed with the product that they too purchased it after seeing the value it afforded us.

Cons: It would be great if there was an App which could be opened rather than a web browser, although this is only a minor consideration with the number of browsers out there.

Overall: Provided visibility and allowed tracking of the team members, contract end dates and the ability to generate accurate invoices for the customer

Pros: The tool really makes time management easy and extremely visual. It does away with ugly excel spreadsheets and with a neat UX, it allows for easy time forecasting whilst also enabling you to easily keep on top of your time expenditure! I genuinely love this tool.

Along with the tool, where there are areas for improvement, the development team are happy to listen and actually make changes based on feedback! I've provided feedback with a couple of times and both have been integrated into future updates - this is a company that listens and constantly develops for the users' needs.

Cons: Very difficult to outline any main cons, as like I said above, any issues I've had with the tool historically, they've been resolved!

If I HAD to provide one, it'll be how the tool works across different devices. It's not especially mobile friendly...but that's me scraping the barrel for a con.

Hi Nil

Thanks for sharing your review of Resource Guru! I wanted to let you know that you can most definitely copy and paste in Resource Guru - just use SHIFT+drag. You'll find a demonstration of this and other handy tips in our Help Center here: https://help.resourceguruapp.com/customer/en/portal/topics/839971-little-tips/articles

I also wanted to let you know that dedicated mobile apps and two way calendar sync are firmly on our roadmap :)

Thanks again, and please don't be a stranger if there's anything we can do to help!

Pros: Our use of Resource Guru is sort of out of the box. We use it for scheduling barn space in the Agriculture Industry. The support team has always stepped up to find ways to enable Resource Guru to fit with our unique needs. If it works this well for our out of the box use, imagine how well it works for it's intended purpose. For us, the reasonable price has been worth the gamble of using a software not meant for our intended use.

Cons: In our out of the box use, the biggest con - is the speed at which the software moves from page to page. However, this might not be Resource Guru's fault. It could be our internet capabilities, or the amount of data we plug in for our purpose. For our use, I'm looking a 15-17 week time frame, like most people look at a 8-10 hour work day. If you use the software as it's intended, this probably wouldn't be a problem.

We love working with this tool and being able to see the company bookings at a glance.

Pros: Easy to add projects, easy to add customers, easy to add team members. The email summary sent out to everyone is great and easy for users to gain access to be able to see their work for the day/week/months coming. The reporting functionality allows us to export the information cleanly and easily for internal reporting needs

Cons: Unable to track timesheets and then be able to compare how accurate bookings vs actuals will be.

Would love to be able to have Project Manager's be able to book their times through the site and then have it approved by Resource Manager.

Overall: Insight on how long projects are booked for, how many hours are booked against a project and if this makes sense for our sales and we're quoting projects correctly. An easy to use tool that allows us to be able to update and manage resources quickly and ever so easily.

Pros: Resource Guru has been fantastic to work with. They have always had excellent customer service, their product is easy to use, and the bills are on-time and consistent. At this point, Resource Guru is a staple program for our college TV station.

Cons: The only thing that I would change would be allowing for custom fields on resource checkouts as a standard. There is currently a large text box for any comments, but it would be great to have the ability to name and create one line text options if you use them for every checkout.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you need solid tracking of resource materials, this is the best. The ability to upload photos, archive resources (i.e. take them out of rotation) and easily bring them back saves hundreds of hours a year in human capital tracking down "misplaced" equipment. As long as you are consistent with tracking all of your resources whenever they are used, expect a dramatic reduction in the amount of time spent locating resources.

Pros: It allows my team to update resource use on their own schedule, and eliminates hours of my time in schedule and team management. I also love that I can archive resources when they are temporarily inactive, therefore saving money.

Cons: What I would like to see in the future:

1. Ability to get daily "Meeting Room" email or report of usage. (Ability to set the time that this occurs would also be helpful)

2. For events that an administrator assigns to a booker, it would be great if the booker could also edit the event.

3. Allow for same-day event schedule changes to notify the resource.

Pros: This software is very easy to use. I like the new option with assigning a Project IDs. The email notifications are great as well. I also like that we can schedule sick days and vacations days.

Cons: I really wish this software would have a UNDO option. Sometimes instead of a copy I would drag and move the item from one person to another. Also, I like the notifications, but I wish we could schedule them to arrive at different time, not at midnight.

Cons: Would be useful to be able to add charge out rates to projects - at the moment export to xls and then combine with other data rather than being able to report in one go.

Overall: Easy resource planning and everyone can access.

Pros: I love using Resource Guru to schedule our team's time. It's so easy to learn and use. Being web-based, I can use it from anywhere, which is a major lpus.

Cons: I wish I could make tasks recurring, but that's not a major drawback. Also, it would be nice to be able to see more detail of each task without clicking into it. But in a way, it's simplicity is better than fancy functionality.

Cons: Google Calendar integration can be fiddly but it's not too bad. Other than that, we're really happy with the software.

Overall: We're so much more organised. Before we were sharing multiple Google Calendars which was a pain when someone joined the company. This solves all of that.

Our planning process has never been more effective and painless. It works like a charm.

Pros: Resource GURU focus on resource management . It doesn't provide a ton of unnecessary gadgets just driving the cost and complexity up. In a small company of app. 20 engineers, the GURU makes an excellent overview for the daily and weekly planning, provides a good forecasts of utilization looking ahead, and the ability of synchronizing with outlook makes it very easy to inform about our expectations to our colleagues.

Cons: A nice feature to work on, would be an 'autofit' function, where a new project could be thrown into the bunch of existing projects and let GURU do the initial planning. A smooth looking app as other software provide would also be nice.

Overall: Transparency of our bookings, and the will from our employees to use it actively

Comments: Used for reporting on current status of the work force as well as future planning for projects. The system is extremely easy to use and provides a great interface for managing resources. When screen sharing or meeting together, RG makes it simple to analyze which resources are available for which projects and determine who is over-booked. No training necessary and ready for complete use after just 30 minutes.

Pros: - Extremely simple (no training required) - Easily accessible - Resource management done right

Cons: - Gets costly after a few users - Built-in reporting isn't great - Minor UI/UX glitches that are annoying until you get used to them

Pros: This is a simple way to organise your staff and resources such as office laptops etc so that everyone can see where everyone else is, and where the office resources are, should another person need them or wish to book them. So much easier to use than an online calendar like g-calendars for example.

Cons: A lack of recurring tasks, but perhaps this is done on purpose? Otherwise I don't have any cons to list - it is pretty much as advertised.

Overall: Overall a good product. I would recommend starting with a list of what you need from software, then what you would like then a nice to have list. See how many ticks this software gets. Compare it to at least two pieces of other software of the same nature before making your final decision. This is what I recommend for any piece of software. Also, check out their own forums of customer support, and social media sites to see what other customers have had to say about the software.

Comments: With a little bit of playing around, it was easy to come to grips with how this app works.

You can easily see the availability of your resources over an extended period of time by department or by person.

The only thing that is a little frustrating for me is that it doesn't connect with diaries, which means I must manually capture any meetings that my resources have, but that's not a biggie.

The only thing I would recommend looking into is being able to print a report of jobs logged in the system per person over a specific period as I need to give details to my colleagues and currently the only way to do this is to screengrab what I need.

Otherwise, great scheduling tool.

Pros: It is an easy way to keep an eye on what your team is doing and assign people to projects. Site works like a charm.

Cons: No real android/ios app available at the time, which would make it even easier to view info. Allow people to insert more hours on a day after confirmation.

Comments: Resource Guru helps ups solve the most difficult challenge we face in our business: sheduling!

We are able to make snap scheduling decisions and re-allocate resources with ease because we have a perfect bird's eye view of who is working on what. Finding out what a specific team member is working on only takes a few seconds.

Making or editing a booking is super simple.

The reports are also a huge help for our billing calculations.

Comments: Resource Guru has saved me a ton of time with team scheduling. Its intuitive interface and useful features make it really easy to get an overview of the projects that my team is currently working on, as well as to allocate upcoming project bookings to the right team member. It's hard to imagine going back to using a spreadsheet again after this..

Comments: When I asked Stilwell about the best way for small businesses to use the solution, he said: by signing up and giving it a try. ¿I think Resource Guru is most effective when you invite resources to the solution,¿ he says. In that vein, consider this view my invitation for you to try out resource scheduling with Resource Guru. You will not regret it!

Comments: It's a great app, super useful and efficient. The only slightly negative thing i comment on is the loading time when you have to go forward or back a month, sometimes this takes time and it'a a bit annoying you can't just keep scrolling past the months but apart form that it's all great!

Comments: Could do with an 'undo' function when making / moving bookings.

Needs ability to assign a colour to a project when creating one quickly in the drop down.

remover the 'dead end' at the end of the month or so in order to feely look at months ahead without having to load it..

Wonderful system to have in the office

Comments: I love the resource guru as it allows people to book their own meeting rooms when they need them. There is no possibility of double booking. It gives people their own password and access from anywhere. This is a huge bonus in our business.

Pros: Resource Guru can be free or at least Inexpensive depending on the plan you choose. Also when trying to get adoption the fact that it is very easy to learn is helpful.

Cons: Resource Guru does not integrate with Salesforce which would be helpful for syncing both future and completed activities.

The software is excellent!
