Professions have similarities when it comes to recording and reporting workload. But they certainly have their differences. How best, then, for a development team to build a solution?
They write software for a specific profession. And so in each organization different programs from different vendors support different professions. Overall, maintenance and training costs are high.
When it comes to looking at the big, multi-profession picture you are faced with having to spend hours, if not days, manipulating data from various programs to arrive at a few core numbers. Every month. Not good.
They write one program to manage all professions. However, the results are anything but sterling because all professions are forced to fit the same mould.
Individual professions resent the restrictions and chafe at having to settle for less. Data quality suffers. And so, single profession reports are of questionable value. Multi-profession reports only compound the problem. Not good either.
Here's how we do it. Promiso, our workload measurement program, handles any number of professions. No shoehorn required. Our solution builds on the similarities between professions while allowing for individual differences. Set up to reflect its particular needs, each profession within Promiso acts as if it were the only one. Voilà! Complete resource management built on strong professional components.
Once workload is recorded, the true power of Promiso shines.
