Organizations perform at high efficiency when you assign the right resources to the right work at the right time. PDWare helps you get to that state easily, delivering credible data about project status and forecasts from project managers and resource utilization data from those who know best - the functional and line managers your resources report to.

View allocation as % of demand
Don't approve projects/portfolios that can't be done with the resources/skills you have.
PDWare calculates how much of the demand can be satisfied in every time period taking into account project priorities, resource capacity, and required skills.
Plan project schedule and tasks
PDWare's dynamic Project Scheduler allows you to go beyond simple project Gantt charts by utilizing a centralized workspace for task management, resource assignments to tasks based on allocation, inter-project dependencies, and mandatory constraints.
The interactive interface will enable you to quickly identify task completion issues due to resource allocation shortfall, effects on your project schedule and deliverables due to external project dependencies violations, and portfolio scheduling effects as a result of changes to the project plan
Know your resources and their capabilities
Many organizations don't know what their resources can do, and how well they can do it. HR systems are out of sync with resource changes, and there is no centralized place to combine labor and non-labor resource information.
PDWare gives you a centralized place to combine all resource information, including capabilities, skills, and proficiency level
