Silverbucket overview

What is Silverbucket?

Silverbucket is a cloud-based resource management solution designed to help businesses across various industry verticals, such as IT, architecture, engineering and more, collect and utilize data to streamline project resource planning. It lets project directors manage processes for allocating resources to projects across a single team or the entire organization.

Key features of Silverbucket include capacity management, data visualization, project scheduling, resource allocation, skills tracking, and utilization management. The solution allows managers to create project teams by introducing quick edits in order to maintain and update data. It also allows users to manage resourcing for a specific role or team member. In order to aid decision making and improve operational efficiency, the dashboard tool provides visibility into the risk history of projects through visual reports.

Silverbucket enables enterprises to build a skills map, monitor specialized skills of team members, and identify individuals with suitable competence level for projects. Plus, it allows tentative allocation of resources, which can be confirmed when project plans are finalized.

I liked the older version, it was handy but Silverbucket guys know this feedback. The new version is ok but when you are working with laptop, the scrolling is very annoying... when you are a heavyuser, it is better to work with screens to be effective. For our line of business Silverbucket is great and it gives answers to the questions we need and the helpdesk is always very helpful and people in Silverbucket are great.

Pros
It gives excellent view to personnel workload and its timing, very useful in many cases

Cons
It lacks the overall dashboard with one view. If you think about directors, they just do NOT want to click anything to see their people's allocation. This software is planned for resourcing and for that it is excellent but to gain next level it should have better features to management reporting. New BI tool is not an answer to that.

Silverbucket is in a tough situatiation at the moment. The mother company restricts the data. Users need to manually fill a lot of information. The board is not made up the mind with whitch direction to go.

Pros
Simple to use in a small scale. Web based and easily accessed.

Cons
Needs a lot of information from different users to see the big picture.

Overall the experience has been very pleasant. Very minor problem with accessibility during one year. Support has been quick, flexible and professional. Silverbucket-tool reports and filtered searches can support our big organization (+1000) in many ways.

Pros
1) It (SB) has be integrated to our (many) current systems. Integrations advantage is to have same information in many places with only one input. 2) Basic usage is very easy to use and view is same for everyone with full user rigths. 3) Only one software version for all the customers

Cons
Pros and Cons are always hand in hand. It is good that it can be configured according to the customer own needs but some times it is difficult to find rigth filters to find needed info.

Ease of resourcing

Pros
Silverbucket is very easy to use, the graphics and colours of the user interface help you see the overall status of resourcing very fast. We are fairly new users of the software and are not utilizing all of the features, but even with the features we are using, we feel that we have a modern and easy to learn-software helping us to resource our people.

Cons
There are some minor things we might want to use differently, for example to name more users to be the project manager, as in our company there might be the owner and the project manager who need to do and update the bookings.
