Hub Planner – Day-to-Day Resource Management

Hub Planner is a web application that professionals who manage resources on a daily basis can use to improve their workflows and schedule their time more efficiently. The platform was built with every industry in mind, making Hub Planner equally ideal for professionals in the fields of HR, consulting, education, construction, and retail.

Ditch the Excel spreadsheets you’ve been using to manage your staff schedules, and sign up for Hub Planner instead. Select a template based on your industry, and quickly start inputting the individual schedules of each of your employees. Schedules are laid out on a color-coded grid, allowing you to visually see how much time is being used by your resources. Hub Planner sends automated alerts when a resource (an employee, in most cases) needs work, or when an action needs to be taken. Reports offer additional insight into how your team is progressing along the path to completing various client projects.

Hub Planner is completely scalable, which means you can use it to plan resources in multiple offices at multiple locations. Calendars and other resource management features are available for both desktop PCs and tablets. You can also use the platform to highlight milestones, like holidays or company events.

Practical Uses:

  • Schedule your employees more efficiently
  • Get automatic updates when a resource needs attention
  • Review your company schedule when you’re outside the office
  • Plan events around company milestones, like holidays and anniversaries

Insider Tips:

  • All scheduling templates can be edited to make them more relevant
  • Drag and drop events into new positions on your visual grid
  • Create “smart groups” based on your company’s unique needs
  • Upgrade your account to manage multiple teams

What we liked:

  • Hub Planner can help managers avoid overbooking their staffs
  • Smart Alerts notify managers when a resource is out of action
  • Reports provide managers with statistical data on the bookings they’ve scheduled
  • People can use Hub Planner to manage time outside of typical work hours

What we didn’t like:
