Full Answer

The resource planning tools available through 10,000 Feet allow employers to create a master workload calendar for employees, which tracks all current company projects and the involvement of employees. Each employee creates a profile with the tool that includes the amount of time available to work on different tasks. Managers are then able to assign work to employees for specific projects and see time commitment and availability to complete other tasks.

Resource Guru also allows employers to view schedules of all employee activities, including the daily and weekly workload for individuals. It contains a master scheduling tool that gives managers the ability to quickly assign different tasks or projects to employees and track productivity.

Hub Planner offers a similar scheduling system that tracks the involvement of different team members on specific projects. It also includes features that allow employees to generate productivity reports, enter project involvement into a time sheet and see the progress of each task.

Teambook contains the tools to assign projects and small tasks to individual employees as well as functionality for sharing assignment details with both members and clients. It also tracks time spent on projects and the current cost.
