Why we created it: Org profitability and team efficiency is directly related to effective allocation on projects. The industry lacks tools for at-scale management of contributors that specialize in various technical stacks or have varied seniority levels, etc. Large organizations frequently over-hire and underutilize their workforce.
What it does: The tool easily and effectively helps managers staff budgeted products with the right set of skills (stacks), minimize bench, and plan costs.
Set utilization targets. Establish individual utilization targets for various tiers of contributors (e.g., developer vs. team lead vs. architect). Manage employment status (e.g., part-time, full-time).
Allocate contributors to products. Map engineers, designers, product managers, and other roles to projects. View product budget allocation vs. running cost of the allocated team.
Monitor capacity and plan hiring. Minimize overhead and bench size while running at-scale programs across the enterprise. Filter data based on the team-level view (e.g., hiring planning, technology stack needs) and enterprise view.
Effectively borrow and share contributors across squads. Easily allocate resources across teams, helping all squads retain high utilization and supplement underutilized budgets.
