We hear it all the time.
Software buyer: “I’m looking for an all-in-one.”
Mosaic: “What do you need it to do?”
Software buyer: “Everything.”
We hate to break it to you, but the amazing all-in-one software solution doesn’t exist. To clarify, it’s not that an all-in-one isn’t available, but rather that it doesn’t do everything with the depth of features you need. In any situation, from software to your personal career, try to do one hundred things, and you will do none of them well.
ERPs and PSA (Professional Services Automation) Software can do everything you need to manage your business in the same way as a Swiss Army Knife. You could use its screwdriver every now and then to tighten a loose screw, but if installing screws is mission-critical, you should head to the store to get a power drill.
Like power drills, new software technology continually evolves to improve efficiency, saving you a tremendous amount of time and making you more money. If managing your resources is mission-critical, you need specialty-purpose resource management software for its:
Dedicated resource management software is designed specifically for resource management, offering a higher and deeper level of functionality than an all-in-one solution.
Dedicated resource management software often provides more extensive customization options, allowing you to tailor the software to meet the specific needs and processes of your resource managers and the organization.
Improved User Experience
A specialized resource management software is designed solely with a resource management use case in mind to provide a more intuitive and user-friendly experience compared to a complex all-in-one solution built for many different types of users.
Better data accuracy
With a specialized solution, resource management isn’t buried in the program, and the ease of use means data is easier to enter, and real-time data is more likely to be accurate, leading to better-informed decision-making.
As your resource management needs grow, you may need to manage more complex project and resource scheduling scenarios. Because of its focus and customizability, dedicated resource management software is better equipped to scale your needs.
Dedicated resource management software companies have a deeper understanding of the resource management domain and can provide specialized support, training, resources, and educational services.
The age of software connectivity is here.
The future of connecting different tools through reliable integrations is here. Modern integrations let you combine the best-of-breed solutions, similar to having separate apps for specific purposes on your phone. For example, many companies utilize their ERP for their financials, Salesforce for their CRM, Jira for project management, Workday for their payroll, and Mosaic for Resource Management. A seamless connection between software lets you use the most powerful and effective solution with a streamlined workflow. Like the drill purchase, you’re significantly increasing productivity with each specialty tool.
Resource management is mission-critical.
People are your most valuable resource, and resource management is the most critical aspect of operations to drive project-based business operational efficiency—especially if you are billing time. A specialized tool will deliver ten times as much impact in optimizing your resources. Specialized resource management software is a requirement for project-based businesses looking to increase their efficiency and profitability.
