Accurate scheduling of employees requires simultaneous access to both their diary or calendar commitments as well as background project tasks - items that are not scheduled in a diary but instead represent a %age of an employee's time, or a time commitment required by a set date.

WhiteSpace® - Scheduling Commitments

Effective project and resource scheduling requires not only the scheduling of actual diary appointments, it requires visibility of all commitments such as background tasks such as to-do items, project tasks, %age of time allocations etc.

WhiteSpace® caters for both diary and non-dairy commitments to provide realtime visibility of resource utilization & availability so that schedulers have all of the information they need to make a informed scheduling decision.

WhiteSpace® takes into account each Resource's available hours, their diary appointments as well as their ongoing background tasks to show the hours available within the date range

in view.

Availability can take into account bookings from other systems such as Outlook, and can even take into account ongoing commitment or background tasks that are not normally published in a calendar.

With availability data


Views dynamically display resource availablity

available within views, users can immediately see whether a resource can be used or not.

 
 
 

Scheduling by Availability
Although schedulers can search resources and calendars for an available slot, WhiteSpace® can do the work for you, simply specify the resource or the type or resource required and the system will analyze their suitability and availability .

WhiteSpace® will advise what resources it has found, but the scheduler can override this and chose another resource subject to your booking rules such as conflicts and availability and the user's security rights.


Scheduling Advisor - choose resources by availability
 
     

WhiteSpace® is available stand alone or fully integrated with our Time® and Time®&Money systems, it can also be fully and seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Exchange to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook, and it also forms the scheduling engine for Time&Space®, our complete professional services automation solution.
