Access real-time resource visibility to plan and execute project scheduling, increase productivity and balance workloads while having the flexibility to respond to resource issues faster and more effectively.

Resource Allocation

Visualize the allocation of users (under/over resourced) and, optionally, reassign tasks to different users in bulk without having  to go into the tasks individually.

Financial Forecasting

​By allocating users to tasks and associating costs with those users, the labour cost to deliver the project can be calculated.

From within the Enterprise Financials module, a single click will generate a forecast based on the resources in the schedule.

Associate each user with a default cost code and, optionally, amend that code on an individual task basis.

Use this forecast plus a defined contingency and open risk value to see the Estimate to Completion at both project and program level.

Integration

Use the built-in reporting to extract resource costs and expense to excel for import into your Financial Management System.

Optionally, Cora can develop bespoke integration to update timesheet information in your FMS either directly or via an enterprise service bus.

Use the API to access resource and time information for use in other applications.

Plan

For a near-term view (0-6 months), Cora provides task-level resourcing on a skilled and/or named user basis against project schedule. This is turn facilitates the leveraging of the Cora Dashboards, Timesheet, Expenses and Workflow (approvals process) tools for tracking task costs and underpinning task and project governance.

Execute

At a granular level, Cora has extensive task management capabilities to assist the project manager in tracking project activities on a day-to-day basis. Tasks are driven from the project schedule in the Gantt and WBS modules, and at this level the work can be assigned to resources to populate their dashboard view.

Track

A suite of email alerts notify resources they have been assigned, and can act in conjunction with the user’s dashboard to provide prompts and reminders regarding late tasks or tasks that are due for completion shortly. The task level resourcing also feeds into the Cora Timesheet for tracking of actual effort associated with the work performed and can be underpinned in terms of governance. Cora Mobile apps (Android & iOS) allow team members to access and update key project activity from anywhere, anytime.
