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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 10

    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 takes in an enormous amount of data; 60+ projects with 150+ engineers, and allows us to make smart resourcing decisions and communicate future headcount needs.

    Cons

    A more modern aesthetic would be great.
    Better automatic reporting.

    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 company to have one online centralised database that is can be used to track and manage the employment of casual staff fulfilling a range of roles.

    Pros

    The system will provide improved visibility of staff capacity and work demand, improved efficiency and accuracy of record keeping, standardisation and quality assurance of key legal and project requirements, future capacity to further automate processes and improve efficiencies in booking, accrediting and record keeping. Web-based and staff can access the software using any web browser anytime/anywhere.

    Cons

    Due to different set up of the company requirements for the software and users(staff), it is not quite intuitive to some staff on how to use the system.

    Pros

    Cost effective, easy to use, configurable, accessible. The product is reasonably intuitive, even in the system administration section. Manual data transfer was reasonably straightforward.

    Cons

    probably the video conferencing training. Partially due to internet limitations, but conditions have to be perfect. As the audio cuts in and out due to instability and also when person A or B speaks, it is hard to have a proper interactive training setup.

    To be able to have one true source of information rather than multiple and to be able to pull information from has made my job a lot easier.

    Pros

    I like that there is so much you can change to make it more suitable to your needs. The tool is easy to use and navigate and anyone can quickly pick it up within a couple of days of using it.

    Cons

    There are some basic features that are not yet available that would make it easier to use for example being able to add certain columns to choose from in reports as not all of them offer the same can make it hard to customize your own reports.

    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.

    At a glance, I can easily see what resources are available for an upcoming project. There are loads of customisations that can be added and this provides a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    Some windows in the configuration section cannot be resized. Not a big deal, but it would be a handy feature.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Saviom has a similar resource management workflow which we follow in Zafin. The functional item configuration and the flexibility of adding it to user panel is good.

    Cons

    The data getting captured can not be reported with out customizing the software. It is customer's data and they should have all functionality right to add columns of their choice to functional items, not from a pre defined selection list by the vendor.

    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.

    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.
