Stay Organized with Resource and Equipment Scheduling Systems
How can you avoid double entries and maintain time-based scheduling requirements? At IBC, Greg Dolan of Xytech Systems explained that resource scheduling allows companies to look at the supply chain and receive a business view of available resources. Scheduling modules can allow you to manage your resources in groups, whether it is people, equipment, stages, edit pays, trucks, and more. Resource scheduling systems such as Xytech Enterprise Scheduling prevents conflicts by keeping track of work orders, vacation time, work-shift patterns and generating conflicts when someone attempts to schedule something for a time slot it is not available. With a user-defined display template, it is easy to control the look and feel of the schedule book as well as changing the screen to display different settings, such as projects, work orders, customers or time.
