Pros: * resource sheduling can be done.

* one of the best feature is its capacity management feature. It can give you a proper forecast based on the data you have.

* Both cloud and inpremise options available.

Cons: * it lacks a resource allocation workflow like request resource, match skill set and allocate.

* it is more like a capacity plannning and forecasting tool.

Thanks so much for your review and for being a continued PDWare customer! We're delighted you're finding the system useful and are grateful you took the time to leave a review.

For clarification, ResourceFirst does indeed support the full resource allocation flow, including requesting skills, finding candidates that meet those skills, and allocating the resource(s) accordingly (with or without approvals, depending on configuration). In fact, we highly recommend ongoing resource allocation based on current priorities and demand, as it's crucial to success. We also have a business rules engine for any further automation required.

Please feel free to contact our support team any time if you'd like more information on how to do this, or for an update on all the latest features! We'll be happy to give you an update!
