I like Teambook; it’s fast, intuitive and easy to use. Its design makes team planning easier and allows me to concentrate on the business rather than updating spreadsheets. The biggest benefit I’ve noticed is undoubtedly the increased productivity of our teams.

Your project resources used to managing digital tools
Within your engineering office, your resources are already familiar with the use of digital tools, particularly project management tools. Thanks to this familiarity, they will quickly feel at ease with Teambook and other similar tools, which will translate into increased productivity for your consulting business. You will clearly benefit from their expertise in the effective use of these digital solutions.
Tracking actual time spent on projects
With a tool like Teambook, you can easily record and track the hours actually spent on each project by each member of your team. This gives you a clear picture of how work is progressing, helps you identify tasks that are taking longer than expected, and enables you to assess your workload more accurately. Thanks to the time tracking functionality, you have reliable information with which to analyse performance, adjust schedules and optimise resource allocation. This means you can manage projects more effectively, keep costs under control and optimise your team’s overall productivity.
Engineering office in Switzerland 45 employees
Planning was non-existent, leading to real inefficiency.
Peter W., owner and director of a large engineering firm in Switzerland, manages 45 employees at 3 sites.
Although its invoicing is optimised on the basis of the times reported by its employees, there is a great deal of uncertainty as to how much time should be spent on each assignment, due to a lack of coherent planning. In the end, it’s not uncommon for projects to literally explode the hours announced in the estimates… Which of course poses a commercial problem, and many hours spent are not invoiced in the end.
Thanks to Teambook and the appointment of a planning manager reporting to the management team, month-by-month planning and communication with engineers and draughtsmen have finally become possible!

Using resource management software has a number of advantages for engineering offices. Firstly, it enables resources to be better allocated, which means that projects can be managed more efficiently and cost-effectively. In addition, the software facilitates collaboration between team members, promoting communication and information sharing. Finally, it also enables the company’s performance to be tracked and analysed, which can help inform decisions to improve processes.
When choosing resource management software for your engineering office, it’s important to consider a number of key factors.
First, assess your specific resource management needs, identifying the essential functionality you require.
Next, make sure that the software is user-friendly and easy to use, so that your team can adopt it quickly. Also check compatibility with other tools and systems you already use.
