Simple and very easy to use resource scheduling\tracking app.

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Resource Guru is a great resource scheduling application for a simple use cases. It does what it promises perfectly. The UI is very friendly and pleasant - make for a great user experience. I used it to track the tasks for my team for almost a year. I would have kept using it but the company mandated a different tracking system and I had to abandon it. I like that Resource Guru'a focus on their product and customer service. I also appreciated the slow introduction of new features. Overall, very pleasant and satisfactory experience with a great application.

Pros:

- Ease of use - Very pleasant UI - Flexibility

Cons:

- Lack of features. The application does the simple scheduling\tracking perfectly though. - Copy\paste of resource tasks was not available at the time

Alternatives Considered: Hub Planner and Float

Reasons for Switching to Resource Guru: The balance of features, ease-of-use, UI and the price.

Glorified spreadsheet

1.0 3 years ago

Comments: Causes more problems than it solves. We used to use a spreadsheet, it was much better than this.

Pros:

Nothing at all. It has no redeeming qualities.

Cons:

Allows you to book time without tasks. When asked to change this was told couldn't because some companies want that function, ie it isn't an option as it should be. The drop downs are fiddle and make it easy to select a blank, but doesn't warn you. Can't toggle between scrolling list and typing to search without cl king out of area. You have a set number of hours per day you need to book but it doesn't highlight those that are short- you have to hover to see remaining time but that function doesn't work properly, resulting in multiple clicks to get it to trigger. Colour by project doesn't actually do it, I'm on 6 projects yet only see 2 colours. Can push to calendar but not pull- useless function as meetings are booked in calendar to allow invites, you want guru to pull that data in to autofill. Though it is web based it is impossible to use on a mobile. The popups are always off screen, making it impossible to use - mobile friendly websites have been around for a very long time, lazy to not have it here, particularly as would allow people who are on the road to log their time on he go. Not worth the hassle even if free.

Brilliant, intuitive platform with top class customer support

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: It has turned something we used to do slowly and manually into something done in seconds.

Pros:

It looks great, the daily update emails are really helpful, it's very easy to use and the reporting is incredibly useful

Cons:

I wish there were more features, especially around putting in (and being able to export) a project timeline with milestones. This would mean you could see the duration of a project and its different phases, then see all the resources booked underneath. I would also love a mobile app!

Alternatives Considered: Smartsheet

Reasons for Choosing Resource Guru: Float's pricing structure is ridiculous - there is no help for a small company

Switched From: Float

Reasons for Switching to Resource Guru: Resource Guru is intuitive and pleasant to use. it's also much easier and makes more sense.

Ease of use, clarity on screen of schedule, block leave allows future planning very easy.
