Our scheduling needs
Before there was shared use of PlanningPME, each department used its own scheduling system, frequently in the form of a spreadsheet that was not shared, and it was hard for the entire workforce to consult it.
It seemed to us to be vital to have a single optimised tool to schedule all departments. As our technical staff spends most of their time outside the company, it was also important d’ to have a mobile solution that allowed them to easily acquaint them with the different daily tasks to be carried out.
Daily use of the schedule
All of the tasks associated with our projects are scheduled and managed in real time by our project managers who have a shared view of the overall schedule, and hence can assign resourcesin an optimal way.
The reception can also access PlanningPME and so they are able to inform our clients directly about the assignment of a project or transfer requests if the person requested is absent.
We also display all absences, for holidays, sickness, etc. in PlanningPME for the entire workforce. Being able to visualise the situation by department is very useful for restricting the number of resources displayed and for improving readability on the screen.
