Retain is a market leader in resource planning and is widely used in resource constrained environments (e.g. Professional Services, IT departments and Engineering). Recently, Retain has also been working with a number of divisions within Capita (CCS, IT Services and Document Information Services).
Retain specialises in resource planning, and has been evolving over 20 years in line with market trends, user requests and feedback from our strategic customers.
Currently, there are over 1,500,000 resources that are being planned for in over 70 countries around the world via Retain’s resource planning software.
Furthermore, canvassing client feedback indicates a conservative improvement estimation of between 2 to 5% in resource utilisation – something that can have a dramatic impact on the bottom line of any organisation. Increasing profitability for clients is at the forefront of the Retain planning model.
