About Saviom ERM


Saviom ERM (enterprise resource management) is a resource management solution suitable for companies of all sizes. Saviom ERM offers scheduling, capacity planning, reports and analytics, resource planning and third-party integrations.

Saviom ERM allows users to drag and drop resources and projects into a Gantt chart. Users can view and edit charts by project, resource or team. Other filters include skills, experience, availability, location and cost, as well as other configurable criteria. Equipment, machines, vehicles, rooms and more can also be managed from the central dashboard.

Multiple users can schedule resources simultaneously. If this results in schedule conflicts, users receive automatic email alerts and calendar updates. A dashboard view of predicted resource use helps managers to forecast the capacity of current resources against future demand. Saviom ERM also includes reporting tools, and reports can be exported in Excel and PDF formats.

Pricing is per user per year.

Saviom greatly simplified our previously manual and cumbersome resourcing processes.

Easily see who is working on which project. Reduced our resourcing meeting times significantly. Instant results for resource requests.

Pros

The Gant chart view makes it simple for everyone to get a snapshot of resource utilisation. Whole business has access to see who is working on which project. It has reduced our resourcing meetings from 2hrs to less than 10 minutes each week. Resources can be requested at anytime so that requests can be allocated immediately, updated in the software so that everyone can see instantaneously.

Cons

Having come from excel spreadsheets, Saviom has made things so easy now. So much so that we were getting complaints that Saviom was only accessible whilst connected to the network in the office. Now with a web version available, this will be a thing of the past so that in this fast moving world, a resource can be requested from anywhere, instantly.

The system is easy to navigate and has multiple filters and built in advantages which make it easy to utilize.

Since we have just purchased time will tell on support and response to needs. We hope it goes very well and look forward to the diversity of the system for managing resources. We fill we may have just touched on the things this application could do for us in the long term.

Pros

It is a resource scheduling tool. The detail that can be captured is almost unlimited. Using the alerts for all types of notifications will be very beneficial and the quick graphic options are nice for visual comparisons. Log on permissions are wide so many levels of users can be had. The depth of filters is very comprehensive and detailed. Ability to filter from resources to project levels is great. Still learning the reporting areas and utilization due to the newness of the system, am excited that the alerts could help identify shortfalls and over scheduling. The quick messages for double booking is very nice and color coding is very visual.

Cons

Cost for users who may only review data is a bit steep. Any person who excesses the system is charged a licence fee. If you have over 50 employees this cost accumulates very quickly. This will impact any users checking to see where they may be scheduled to report or if they need to enter time to the system. Have not integrated any data from our existing system yet but mapping could possibly be challenging.

Saviom is very easy to use, is lean and gives meaningful assistance to resource management

It makes it easy for us to manage resources and utilisation across multiple discipline teams over three offices.

Pros

The user interface is extremely simple and easy. Drag and drop to re-allocate tasks. Split and move tasks with a couple of clicks.

Saviom is highly configurable. It is fairly easy to trim out any components that you are not using and adjust input screens and behaviours to suit your needs.

Cons

Not really a dislike - the software is highly configurable but the documentation is limited so getting things set the way you want them involves some trial and error, and some time. There's a payoff though.

Manages multiple jobs, manpower & equipment with ease. I rely on it daily

Pros

Easy to configure and customize fields to our business needs. Ability to store certifications, track training- notify expiration dates. Ability to see where all our technicians are and insure I do not double book people or equipment. Very user friendly.

Cons

"roles". Most of our technicians have multiple roles and can have a skill that they are both qualified & certified for; only allows me to choose one or the other.

Saviom Enterprise Resource Management review

Efficiency gains and multi-user capability rather than using spreadsheets to manage scheduling and resources.

Pros

Saviom was the only package that fitted our requirements for Full Time and Part Time resources working on several bespoke concurrent projects managing personnel qualification and their certification and license expires.

Cons

A little old fashioned with our version - but understand its had a recent refresh which we are exploring.

Great tool for resource planning

Great overview of resources (including capabilities and skills) and projects. Our project planning is much smoother now.

Pros

There are so many possibilities for use of this software, configurations etc to make it fit exactly to your needs. I highly recommend it.

Cons

With the number or planning resources (over 700 resources) and projects (over 400) we have in Saviom, some of the screen can be a bit slow to load.

Customer Feedback

Once the software was implemented in the organization. It was able to produce dashboard reports highlighting some key issues around our resource demands. The company never tracked or reported on head count and presently the company has fortnightly meetings to discuss and review Saviom and the companies headcount issues.

Pros

The functionality of the tool is impressive. Was a quick transition on learning how to use the tool.

Cons

Project Management Scheduling like MS project or P6 would have added further enhancement to the tool.

Highly functional software makes for a good step forward from Excel.

We were able to move from a single dimensional view of resources bookings (people against a timeline) in Excel to multi-dimensional views (e.g. by project, by customer, by team, by type of work, etc). We also extended our bookings to incorporate financials (i.e. revenue and cost rates) to better facilitate revenue forecasting, removing another old manual process.

Pros

The timeline view of resource bookings is very intuitive. The caveat is that you need to take care with bookings of less than a day, as these will still appear to be full-day bookings at a glance. Otherwise, it is very easy to see who is booked where, and to make adjustments with the drag and drop capabilities (with more detail available on hovering over a booking, and much more detail if you open the booking). The colouring of bookings is relatively flexible and multi-dimensional (e.g. project type, likelihood, etc).

Cons

The functionality for requesting resources is clunky and difficult to use, which is a pity since it is a time consuming business process to carry out manually and would add to the perceived value of the solution if it were more seamless.
