As we enter the 21st century, easily identifying resources and their availability quickly has become increasingly important. Having the right team on your projects can mean the difference between success and epic failure. The Booq app provides users a clear window into resource availability so projects can be planned seamlessly.
Prior to the Booq app, determining available resources was a 100% manual process involving spreadsheets, Rolodexes, and many, many phone calls. The goal was to digitize resourcing and allow it to be done from any device anywhere in the world.
After countless interviews with Industry professionals, we determined that visibility was the key factor in resourcing. Instantly accessing the resource's availability, their skill set and general location would reduce the time it takes to staff a project.
Creating Projects allows you to begin to identify potential resources before the project has been authorized to begin. In addition, you can create as many projects as you like. With projects, you can also assign a resource manager that will be responsible for staffing the project.
Resourcing made easy - with the ability to search for resources from one application not only saves time, but you can also communicate with the resources from within the app.
