Comparison Criteria

To be featured on this resource management software list, I evaluated tools based on the following criteria:

  •  User Interface (UI): How well-designed is it? Does it offer clear displays and intuitive navigation? 
  • Usability: Is this resources management system easy to learn and master? Are there tutorials and training? Does the company offer good tech and user support?
  • Features & Functionality: How many of the key resource management software features and functions does it provide, and how powerful are they? Specifically, I looked for:
  • Scheduling and allocation tools: is it easy to put the right people on the right projects? Includes simple calendars, grids, ability to set deadlines and dependencies, and easy drag-and-drop to move resources around. Auto-scheduling features are a great plus.
  • Skills tracking: can you find certain employees based on their specific set of skills and availability? Includes the ability to input employee schedules, create profiles listing their skills, and easily search by skills. Additionally, the better tools offer powerful search functionality that allows you to filter by essentially any project variable: tag, department, client, etc.
  • Forecasting: does it include staffing or demand forecasting to help you plan for the future? This entails that the software collects data on sales, development, launches, schedules (etc) and makes resourcing recommendations to help you anticipate demands.
  • Utilization management tools: usually takes the form of analytics and reporting features that give insight into capacity, utilization, and performance for projects, clients and individuals. Many tools also allow you to analyze your entire project portfolio.
  • Integrations: Is it easy to connect with other tools? Any pre-built integrations?
  • Value for $: How appropriate is the price for its features, capabilities, and use case? Is pricing clear, transparent and flexible?
