  • Tell us about your customers

    Our customers already perform some sort of resource planning (e.g. with excel sheets), but they are annoyed with their current solution and would like to use a simple and lean application with a strong focus on collaboration. Users of this tool like the idea that you can just assign a load factor (a percentage) to a resource for an activity in a calendar week. They don't want to use a complex project planning software. Team and project managers can invite members and external people to collaborate and share their availability to facilitate rough planning. A big plus is the free tier and the affordable price for certain premium features.

  • Additional Details

    We observe that many organisations make resource planning overly complicated and then get overtaken by reality. The time spent on detailed resource planning is often just a waste of time.

    It is important to note that the software is NOT a project planning tool, so any names which relate to the term 'project' should be avoided. Planning is done on a week level - no possibility and need to plan by minutes, hours or days (although 'days' might be an option for the future). But you can plan months ahead if you like.

    Please also note that planning by calendar weeks is a common thing in Europe but not so much in the Americas and as far as we know neither in APAC - but we think it's a 'good enough' detail level for most teams.

    It is also not a time logging software although it may evolve in that direction. It may be used for vacation planning/other absences.

    We love product names and services such as 'slack' and 'trello'. This software might be placed in a similar realm with these tools, reducing administrative overhead, improving efficiency, life hacks etc. We especially like the name 'trello' because it's short and sharp.

    If possible, please avoid names where you have to prepend 'the...' or 'get...' or 'try...' and similar words in front of the actual product name.

  • What Style or Character should the brand convey?

    The name must first and foremost be short and memorable. If it needs to transport a message, it should convey a sleek feeling of simplicity and efficiency. The message transported can be playful, imaginative, maybe funny, maybe a hint to a dictionary word, be creative! It should, if possible, not discourage people which approach resource planning in a slightly more professional manner.
