Resource Reports

For company management, this tool is primarily used to provide a global overview of the organization's resources. It tells you how well the organization manages its resources, such as completing tasks (process orders), utilizing the full potential (capacity) of resources, and allocating the capacity of resources to work.

Based on this information, it is simple to determine if the company is doing well or poorly using its employees' capacity and whether it is necessary to hire new employees or fire current employees. As a result, it is a crucial tool for the human resources agenda.

Because the Resource Report is based on data from the Resource Management tool, it contains no duplicate information. All that has changed is the format in which it is delivered. It is impossible to get data or computations from any source other than Resource Management.
