Retain is a market leader in resource planning and is widely used in resource constrained environments including Law, Professional Services, IT departments and Engineering. 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 being planned for in over 70 countries around the world via Retains 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.
The core focus of our application is resource planning and helping clients gain operational efficiencies from more controlled planning. The software delivers efficient allocation of resources to projects and ensures the best people are scheduled to work on a project. Retain provides an intuitive, reliable and secure platform in order to centralise resource data. From here, users can establish which staff are available for project work and monitor those already appointed to projects.
Each organisation has different processes so a resource planning solution must adapt to suit unique requirements. Through the easy creation of new fields, defining security rules and tailoring calculations, firms can rely on Retain to fit right into their existing processes. Furthermore, by capturing skills and attributes, it is much easier to allocate the most appropriate resource to a specific project.
