“Saviom greatly simplified our previously manual and cumbersome resourcing processes.”

OverallEasily see who is working on which project. Reduced our resourcing meeting times significantly. Instant results for resource requests.
ProsThe Gant chart view makes it simple for everyone to get a snapshot of resource utilisation. Whole business has access to see who is working on which project. It has reduced our resourcing meetings from 2hrs to less than 10 minutes each week. Resources can be requested at anytime so that requests can be allocated immediately, updated in the software so that everyone can see instantaneously.
ConsHaving come from excel spreadsheets, Saviom has made things so easy now. So much so that we were getting complaints that Saviom was only accessible whilst connected to the network in the office. Now with a web version available, this will be a thing of the past so that in this fast moving world, a resource can be requested from anywhere, instantly.

“The system is easy to navigate and has multiple filters and built in advantages which make it easy to utilize.”

OverallSince we have just purchased time will tell on support and response to needs. We hope it goes very well and look forward to the diversity of the system for managing resources. We fill we may have just touched on the things this application could do for us in the long term.
ProsIt is a resource scheduling tool. The detail that can be captured is almost unlimited. Using the alerts for all types of notifications will be very beneficial and the quick graphic options are nice for visual comparisons. Log on permissions are wide so many levels of users can be had. The depth of filters is very comprehensive and detailed. Ability to filter from resources to project levels is great. Still learning the reporting areas and utilization due to the newness of the system, am excited that the alerts could help identify shortfalls and over scheduling. The quick messages for double booking is very nice and color coding is very visual.
ConsCost for users who may only review data is a bit steep. Any person who excesses the system is charged a licence fee. If you have over 50 employees this cost accumulates very quickly. This will impact any users checking to see where they may be scheduled to report or if they need to enter time to the system. Have not integrated any data from our existing system yet but mapping could possibly be challenging.

“Saviom Enterprise Resource Management review”

OverallEfficiency gains and multi-user capability rather than using spreadsheets to manage scheduling and resources.
ProsSaviom 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 expires.
ConsA little old fashioned with our version - but understand its had a recent refresh which we are exploring.

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

OverallIt makes it easy for us to manage resources and utilisation across multiple discipline teams over three offices.
ProsThe 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.
ConsNot 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.

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

ProsEasy 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.

“Great tool for resource planning”

OverallGreat overview of resources (including capabilities and skills) and projects. Our project planning is much smoother now.
ProsThere are so many possibilities for use of this software, configurations etc to make it fit exactly to your needs. I highly recommend it.
ConsWith 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.

“Customer Feedback”

OverallOnce the software was implemented in the organization. It was able to produce dashboard reports highlighting some key issues around our resource demands. The company never tracked or reported on head count and presently the company has fortnightly meetings to discuss and review Saviom and the companies headcount issues.
ProsThe functionality of the tool is impressive. Was a quick transition on learning how to use the tool.
ConsProject Management Scheduling like MS project or P6 would have added further enhancement to the tool.

“Learning new software is exciting and at the same time challenging. Saviom team is very helpful.”

OverallThe company to have one online centralised database that is can be used to track and manage the employment of casual staff fulfilling a range of roles.
ProsThe system will provide improved visibility of staff capacity and work demand, improved efficiency and accuracy of record keeping, standardisation and quality assurance of key legal and project requirements, future capacity to further automate processes and improve efficiencies in booking, accrediting and record keeping. Web-based and staff can access the software using any web browser anytime/anywhere.
ConsDue to different set up of the company requirements for the software and users(staff), it is not quite intuitive to some staff on how to use the system.

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

OverallWe 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.
ProsThe 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).
ConsThe 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.

“Powerful software to visualise resource utilisation”

ProsAt 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.
ConsSome windows in the configuration section cannot be resized. Not a big deal, but it would be a handy feature.

“Overall very positive and intuitive. ”

OverallTo 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.
ProsI 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.
ConsThere 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 Good. Performance and Flexibility should be improved”

ProsSaviom 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.
ConsThe 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.

“Been pleased with the vendor support and the ease of use of the product, user and admin.”

ProsCost effective, easy to use, configurable, accessible. The product is reasonably intuitive, even in the system administration section. Manual data transfer was reasonably straightforward.
Consprobably the video conferencing training. Partially due to internet limitations, but conditions have to be perfect. As the audio cuts in and out due to instability and also when person A or B speaks, it is hard to have a proper interactive training setup.

“Game-changing for a growing organization.”

ProsSAVIOM takes in an enormous amount of data; 60+ projects with 150+ engineers, and allows us to make smart resourcing decisions and communicate future headcount needs.
ConsA more modern aesthetic would be great. Better automatic reporting.
