The Colorado case
- Industry: Consulting
- Main issues: Lack of visibility on employee workload, non-optimized utilization rate, estimating financial forecasts
Choosing a suitable platform
During a project launched in 2018, Colorado consulting wanted to reimagine its internal processes, specifically improving resource planning management, increasing company visibility, and maximizing utilization rate.
Stafiz offered its platform to Colorado Group, promising a simplified process, a future gain in profitability, and a resource optimization solution through improved, centralized systems.
"We turned to Stafiz, which not only allowed us to digitize our resource planning but to also automatically calculate remaining work on projects."
Before / After
Prior to this change, the planning team worked with spreadsheets. This led to the following problems:
- Lack of real time plan updates
- No visibility on the impact of holidays on the future workload
- Low utilization rate, impacting business profitability
- Little transparency for employees
- No transparency of remaining work to calculate margins of projects
- Real-time project resource allocation updates for client projects, internal projects, and planned absences
- Integrations that factor in the future workload of potential opportunities
- Automatic calculation of future project margins and visual reports of deviations from budget
- Real-time visibility for employees
- Multi-criteria profile searches, with competency management
"Since we started using Stafiz, we have seen our profitability increase, because we are able to smooth out the workload of our employees much better."
The results in figures
- Time saved from schedule management: 5 hours per week
- Growth of utilization rate : +35%.
- Improved profitability of the business: +15% on project margins
- Savings from eliminating unnecessary absence management software
