How Capacity Planner supports Paradine's resource management process

Paradine is a global leader among consulting, services, and software companies in product master data management.


Before Planner, Paradine used old static spreadsheets to manage their work and had no method to estimate costs, resource needs, or staffing outside of guesstimating from previous projects or manually crunching all the data they had.

Team members were not able to see what they were planned for, and a project manager used to send their plans to employees in a screenshot so they knew what they should work on. 


Transparent and straightforward planning is now an important part of how Paradine attains its company goals.

One key feature that helped their teams is capacity report, which provides Paradine with crucial information on how resources are allocated for the long run. Capacity Planner helps team leads to minimize the practice of overbooking team members by making the availability of employees visible in one view. 

Now, their employees can give feedback on if they are under or overbooked, and there is far greater culture of communication between management and their employees and both have more insights available into their work.

“The system now is so much easier because employees can give me feedback like, ‘Hey, you overbooked me’ or ‘I actually have more time next week, give me a bit more’,” Reinagl says. “We have much more communication with each employee within the planning than there was before.”

With Capacity Planner, it took one meeting. I read into it a bit, made a short presentation, and since then we are using it. It’s running and it’s not complicated. It has nice features, but it’s not too hard to use. It’s just working.

You can create different workload schemes to address different working hour requirements, and then assign the members to their appropriate scheme. For example, employees who work in different countries might have different working hour requirements, or some employees might be working only part-time.

All Tempo users must be assigned to a workload scheme, and by default, everyone is added to the Tempo default workload scheme. When a new user is added to Tempo, they are automatically added to the default scheme.

The team capacity dashboard provides team managers with a quick overview of the teams' true size, work allocation, and progress. The capacity data is calculated to show you the planned and the available time in FTE, which can help you with your hiring needs and any resource adjustments across teams.

Generic resources offer a solution of mapping resources to project tasks early before actual resources are identified and can be used in the following scenarios:

- For projects in the early planning stages and until the actual team members are identified and allocated to work on those projects.

- When a team member working on a current project is no longer available, their planned tasks can be assigned to a generic resource until a replacement is found.

- When an actual resource is available, a previously assigned generic resource can be replaced by a team member now identified and available to work on the allocated tasks.

Planner is a very valuable tool on its own and does not require Timesheets. However, if you would like to take advantage of measuring how the actual time spent on particular issues compares to what was planned, you will need Timesheets installed.
