Bournemouth, UK (PRWEB UK) 22 March 2012
IRIS PROJECTminder has been upgraded to v6 for all clients, implementing the major new feature of Multi-Project Resourcing for all customers.
Many, if not all, project-oriented businesses including architects, media agencies, engineers and consultants need to ensure their fee earning staff are being as utilised as effectively as possible. After all, this is where the bulk of a firm's revenue and profit comes from.
Multi-Project Resourcing provides a fast and intuitive approach to identifying any under-utilised staff in your firm and matching their available time with under-resourced tasks from any of your organisation's projects.
This means that your fee-earning staff utilisation targets have a better chance of being achieved and as a consequence improving your bottom line and profitability.
With this latest version of PROJECTminder, project management software users can select a resource name which will pop up their 'scratchpad', showing their current task assignments as well as all other tasks requiring resource allocation for the chosen time period.
From here they can replace resources, amend task durations, change resource percentage allocations and assign selected resources to the task – all with just a couple of clicks of a mouse.
Paul Sparkes, Product Director, IRIS Accounting & Business Solutions, said: “As part of our on-going improvement programme, we have been working closely together with our clients to gather their feedback and put in place actions to deliver the products and services that our customers have told us matter to them the most.”
“This major release will give our users even greater functionality and any existing PROJECTminder clients wanting to explore the specific benefits of Multi-Project Resourcing for their firm should contact their account manager to discuss the range of training options available.”
Existing customers are invited to find out more by logging on to their PROJECTminder help system for a comprehensive overview, along with two video tutorials highlighting the main features and benefits.
The next release of PROJECTminder, due October 2012, will implement a large number of customer-requested features and enhancements to deliver an even greater improved user experience.
