Teams and individual employees can be the greatest assets a company has, but they need direction and purpose. Asana helps by presenting clear, concise organizational information and individual responsibilities. Every team member can see at a glance what they should be doing; when it needs to be finished; and how to complete each assigned task. The platform also allows management to zoom out and see the timeline of events, past and future, with options to create unscheduled events.

Float is a resource management and capacity planning system that's popular with digital start-ups and established online businesses — from 10 employees to thousands — both remote and office-based. Everything takes place in the cloud, and the per-user cost makes it a particularly valuable tool for small businesses that need to manage the new world remotely. It's a modular system, with optional time tracking features that integrate with the core resource planning, although it's a relatively pricey add-on.

Kimble PSA Logo
Kimble PSA
If it can be measured, it can be managed. If it can be predicted, it can be optimized. Kimble PSA takes these simple truths and sees the potential profits left on the table due to poor planning in sales. It does this by predicting customer needs, the cost of fulfilling them, and, ultimately, the expected revenue. Managers clearly see what resources are needed as well as their priorities, profits, and projects. Customers are served efficiently via dedicated portals and CRM integration.

In particular, the software helps teams and individuals avoid much of the stress associated with deadlines by accurately scheduling projects, giving realistic times that can shift according to availability and priority. This contrasts with the common style of rigid, burnout-inducing deadlines while maintaining collaboration and accountability.

NetSuite Logo
NetSuite
NetSuite is an Oracle product — perhaps the most well-known name in this list, with clients unrivaled in collective revenue — and its popularity funds wide-ranging features with regular updates. It's a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that's built for scale while also being accessible for many start-ups to grow along with it. Although the cost of $99 per month per user is prohibitive for some, it's genuinely capable of replacing numerous costly systems, which may tip the scales in its favor.

Custom quotes are required for enterprise-level services such as API integration and VIP support/training.

The platform holds its own in many situations, such as tracking and scheduling of small yet important pieces of equipment, including cameras, lighting rigs, and other moving pieces. The Grasshopper and Blackbelt Plans are the cheapest solutions on our list for most use cases, and all plans offer free trials, which is relatively uncommon among the high-end plans of competitors.

Saviom has a wider scope than most competitors, including more industry-specific capabilities and in-demand functions, such as remote worker management that's not simply patched in to keep up with trends and then forgotten. As such, it's a top consideration at the enterprise level. Its clients have more to gain and face more regulations and greater risks than others. Although it's not cheap, overcoming these obstacles requires tailor-made solutions and accuracy that Saviom's clients rely on.

Workfront
Workfront
Workfront is the central hub powering a large enterprise — where managers view, measure, and modify processes manually and/or via automation. It's also a collaborative place for workers, with role-specific views that channels energy appropriately. This software is one of the most expensive, depending on management scope, AI capabilities, paid add-ons, and integrations. However, after initial budgeting, flexibility in this and all areas of the software are essential to enterprise-level clients.

Wrike is one of the most well-balanced entries — measuring, tracking, and predicting low-level details often missed by others while also giving clear enterprise-level views — and it's now one of the top choices for automation of many tasks. Even so, managerial control is maintained, and security isn't compromised by AI. Wrike's free plan is quite generous as a starting point, with no looming countdown, but most serious gains aren't realized at this level.

How We Chose the Best Resource Management Services

This list of solutions is intended for a wide range of businesses, from small, five-person teams to global enterprises. Choosing the best resource management software for any particular use requires an assessment of existing structures, systems, and goals. These elements typically fall into one of three categories.

Resource Management Features

The correct choice of software should pay for itself — at the very minimum — with increased efficiency and other direct benefits from its resource management features. Basically, this is where the largest gains can be realized. We add more weight to these core features, such as automation in timesheets and other areas, capacity planning, and project management that can be high level or fine-grained as needed.

Collaboration Tools

A business is more efficient when its teams and individuals work together, but in many cases, it's also important for them to work separately. Teams can avoid conflicts and reduce the chance of doing unnecessary work another is responsible for.

Reports

Whether customer-focused or aimed internally, reporting features can help analyze and explain many opportunities or risks along the way. Analysis should constantly improve both management and collaborative efforts.
