Pros: I like that there is so much you can change to make it more suitable to your needs. The tool is easy to use and navigate and anyone can quickly pick it up within a couple of days of using it.

Cons: There are some basic features that are not yet available that would make it easier to use for example being able to add certain columns to choose from in reports as not all of them offer the same can make it hard to customize your own reports.

Overall: To be able to have one true source of information rather than multiple and to be able to pull information from has made my job a lot easier.

Great tool for resource planning

Pros: There are so many possibilities for use of this software, configurations etc to make it fit exactly to your needs. I highly recommend it.

Cons: With the number or planning resources (over 700 resources) and projects (over 400) we have in Saviom, some of the screen can be a bit slow to load.

Overall: Great overview of resources (including capabilities and skills) and projects. Our project planning is much smoother now.

Good, easy to use system that can effectively manage utilisation and demand planning

Pros: At a glance, I can easily see what resources are available for an upcoming project. There are loads of customisations that can be added and this provides a lot of flexibility.

Cons: Some windows in the configuration section cannot be resized. Not a big deal, but it would be a handy feature.

Highly functional software makes for a good step forward from Excel.

Pros: The timeline view of resource bookings is very intuitive. The caveat is that you need to take care with bookings of less than a day, as these will still appear to be full-day bookings at a glance. Otherwise, it is very easy to see who is booked where, and to make adjustments with the drag and drop capabilities (with more detail available on hovering over a booking, and much more detail if you open the booking). The colouring of bookings is relatively flexible and multi-dimensional (e.g. project type, likelihood, etc).

Cons: The functionality for requesting resources is clunky and difficult to use, which is a pity since it is a time consuming business process to carry out manually and would add to the perceived value of the solution if it were more seamless.

Overall: We were able to move from a single dimensional view of resources bookings (people against a timeline) in Excel to multi-dimensional views (e.g. by project, by customer, by team, by type of work, etc). We also extended our bookings to incorporate financials (i.e. revenue and cost rates) to better facilitate revenue forecasting, removing another old manual process.

Very easy to use, happy with the product

Pros: Saviom was the only package that fitted our requirements for Full Time and Part Time resources working on several bespoke concurrent projects managing personnel qualification and their certification and license expiries

Cons: A little old fashioned with our version - but understand its had a recent refresh which we are exploring.

Overall: Efficiency gains and multi-user capability rather than using spreadsheets to manage scheduling and resources.

Overall Good. Performance and Flexibility should be improved

Pros: Saviom has a similar resource management workflow which we follow in Zafin. The functional item configuration and the flexibility of adding it to user panel is good.

Cons: The data getting captured can not be reported with out customizing the software. It is customer's data and they should have all functionality right to add columns of their choice to functional items, not from a pre defined selection list by the vendor.

Saviom is very easy to use, is lean and gives meaningful assistance to resource management

Pros: The user interface is extremely simple and easy. Drag and drop to re-allocate tasks. Split and move tasks with a couple of clicks.

Saviom is highly configurable. It is fairly easy to trim out any components that you are not using and adjust input screens and behaviours to suit your needs.

Cons: Not really a dislike - the software is highly configurable but the documentation is limited so getting things set the way you want them involves some trial and error, and some time. There's a payoff though.

Overall: It makes it easy for us to manage resources and utilisation across multiple discipline teams over three offices.

Manages multiple jobs, manpower & equipment with ease. I rely on it daily

Pros: Easy to configure and customize fields to our business needs. Ability to store certifications, track training- notify expiration dates. Ability to see where all our technicians are and insure I do not double book people or equipment. Very user friendly.

Cons: "roles". Most of our technicians have multiple roles and can have a skill that they are both qualified & certified for; only allows me to choose one or the other.
