Additionally, we are also enhancing product backlog, defect backlog, release planning and sprint planning. Product backlog and defect backlog are already deployed for the use with extremely high performance and great user experience. We aim to replace all views within next quarter so you can really enjoy using Quickscrum on day to day basis.

Resource Utilization

Resource utilization is a 360° view of your enterprise comparing planned vs actual utilization of resources in terms of hours and full time equivalent (FTE). You can get the comparision at portfolio, project and resource level.

What key information to derive?

You can get the following key insights for better decision making and bringing a huge impact to your organizations’ profitability.

  • Get scheduled vs actual efforts at portfolio, project and resource level to understand whether you are
    overspending or underspending compare to planned efforts.

You will come across one of the following real life scenario,

  • Scenario 1: Forecasted Efforts < Actual Efforts  (Team has spent an additional amount of efforts than the scheduled one)
  • i.e. Team has under estimated initial efforts or Project scope is changed later stage of the project.
  • Scenario 2: Forecasted Efforts > Actual Efforts (Team has spent less amount of efforts than scheduled one)
  • i.e. It shows that either, The management has overallocated resources by wrong estimated efforts required or The team has outperformed for the project completion.
  • Get full time equivalent for portfolio, project and resource level.
  • Calculate estimated budget vs spent budget for any portfolio or project using total hours or FTE value.

Resource Scheduling & Consolidated Timesheet Pagination

We have changed the behaviour and added pagination in resource scheduling and consolidated timesheet. Few of our clients detected performance issues with resource scheduling and consolidated timesheet due to heavy data. Our team has decided to add pagination instead of loading data on the scroll. This will enhance the overall user experience.
