Pros

Resource Guru is extremely easy to use and effective at managing a team. It loads quickly, is super reliable and is our go-to software for managing any project.

LB

Luke B.

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.

KP

Katherine P.

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.

MA

Maggie A.

Pros

Brilliant solution to allow me to manage my project resources and monitor their weekly/monthly/quarterly allocation with good reporting.

TR

Tom R.

Float is super easy to use and is a perfect fit for what I use it for, which is mostly planning resources and allocating tasks for high collaboration digital projects.

JS

Jason S.

Quick and responsive interface with easy filtering. All of these are great improvments form our previus solution.

SG

Szabolcs G.

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.

MP

Melissa P.

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

JC

Jordan C.

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

EG

Elom G.

Cons

I get very disoriented scroll in two dimensions through the enormous grid, it can be confusing search through such a large spread of information.

RV

Roger V.

Only downside is that I'm unable to brand it up a bit with our company logo's/colours.

IT

Ian T.

It's annoying when trying to put half day tasks. Sometimes the cursor from neutral turns into cursor of completion or deletion without warning.

Float

I recommend

Reviewed 3 years ago

It was very good. Very helpful to creative teams, always flooded with requests.

Pros

Float is easy to use. Very intuitive. Just dragging and dropping, and you can see the whole team at once. It helps to define the priority of things, seeing if they have to go further on the calendar or if we should hire a freelancer when the team is too busy. Plus, I find the interface more friendly than other options like Resource Guru.

Cons

There's nothing I strongly don't like about Float. I just wish it was a little more affordable for startups.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review, Louis! Great to hear you're monitoring utilization across the team with Float. In case you haven't tried it, to copy-paste a task, hold the shift key and click and drag the task. Et voilá!
