Resource Guru is easy to use, and is updated to continue to make the product better for the customer. The repeatable booking function is fantastic.

I love how easy and simple Guru is to use. We spent so many years searching for a tool to fit our needs and only Guru could do what we needed - and better yet, it is so reasonably priced.

Maggie A.

Cons
It's unfortunate that this tool doesn't link up with our PM tool, Asana. There's no 'undo' button if you accidentally click and drag a booking unknowingly.

Updating my work schedule/bookings is no longer a task that I dread.

Differentiating between confirmed file and unconfirmed files. Unable to sort resources by experience level.

Simple and very easy to use resource scheduling\tracking app.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Resource Guru is a great resource scheduling application for a simple use cases. It does what it promises perfectly. The UI is very friendly and pleasant - make for a great user experience. I used it to track the tasks for my team for almost a year. I would have kept using it but the company mandated a different tracking system and I had to abandon it. I like that Resource Guru'a focus on their product and customer service. I also appreciated the slow introduction of new features. Overall, very pleasant and satisfactory experience with a great application.

Pros

- Ease of use - Very pleasant UI - Flexibility

Cons

- Lack of features. The application does the simple scheduling\tracking perfectly though. - Copy\paste of resource tasks was not available at the time

Great tool for resource planning

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall, RG was a game-changer for us. Since we have implemented it, we got a better overview of our projects and became able to plan ahead and more long-term.

Pros

The product is very easy to use, intuitive, and fast. We love the ability to zoom in and out and have different views of our timeline.

Cons

What I (currently) miss most is the ability to quickly update the schedule. For example, to select multiple "tasks" for one employee and move them 1 or more days forward, in other words, to shift or postpone someone's entire schedule. We change schedules quite frequently so it would be easier for us to have this enabled. But I've heard that this would be possible down the road.

usage of GURU

Reviewed 2 months ago

I do find it easy to use, very intuitive and clear interfaces. I do do the inductions of new 'Client managers' on how to view their requested resources and everybody likes it

Pros

The simplicity of the usage and interface

Cons

I could not edit information of members of the team once they are listed.

Vendor response

Hi Mimi Thanks for sharing your feedback! Once your team activate their account, their photo comes under their control (along with their name and email address). Resource Guru was designed so that each person invited into the app has control over their own details and can keep their own details up to date. This helps to prevent one person from being burdened with keeping everything up to date. So, the best thing to do is to ask your team to update their own photos themselves. If you have any resources that have been added to your account without being invited (or who have yet to activate their invite) then you should still be able to upload photos for them. Please let me know if there's anything else we can do to help :) Thanks, Michelle

Glorified spreadsheet

Reviewed 3 years ago

Causes more problems than it solves. We used to use a spreadsheet, it was much better than this.

Pros

Nothing at all. It has no redeeming qualities.

Cons

Allows you to book time without tasks. When asked to change this was told couldn't because some companies want that function, ie it isn't an option as it should be. The drop downs are fiddle and make it easy to select a blank, but doesn't warn you. Can't toggle between scrolling list and typing to search without cl king out of area. You have a set number of hours per day you need to book but it doesn't...

Great Scheduling Assistant

Reviewed 4 months ago

Resource Guru has added much needed forward visibility to our scheduling and quoting. It has been an easy integration, and we are continuing to realize new benefits of the software.

Pros

The visibility of upcoming work and appointments is helpful for quoting future jobs.

Cons

I would like a resource classification for Machinery. It would help with production scheduling.

Vendor response

Hi Nicholas Thanks for sharing your feedback! I just wanted to let you know, that you can definitely add your Machines as non-human resources in Resource Guru! You can add these resource types as Miscellaneous and give it the name it requires to appear in your Schedule and reports. I hope this helps, but please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you. I'm always happy to help! Thanks, Michelle
