Sales Pipeline Visibility

Kantata enabled long-term scheduling and insights into both in-office and remote employees to reduce benchtime. These insights into upcoming project demands help make the most of each resource.

The Results

Massive Gains in Resource Utilization

Adopting Kantata has helped TeleTracking achieve 100% compliance with their time tracking policies, ensuring all team members are reporting correctly. This has resulted in TeleTracking experiencing a 37% increase in billable utilization between 2018 and 2019. In addition, the company has benefited from improved Work-in-Progress (WIP) accounting through Kantata.

Robust Time Tracking

Previously, TeleTracking was not tracking all time for remote, technical teams, despite having a large number of those employees. Insights provided by Kantata create visibility into how resources are being used and prevent underutilization by helping managers understand how their entire team can operate more effectively, with an 18% increase in hours to date.

Long-Term Forecasting for Capacity

TeleTracking has utilized Kantata’s Unnamed Resource Feature to allow named resources to be scheduled closer to actual events and has used Resource Center to assure all resources both remote and on-site are scheduled effectively. In addition, Insights Reports support real-time, objective capacity planning.

"Being able to finally have this ecosystem with Kantata where we could look at our resources as a whole and see where they were deployed, what they were focused on, what skill sets we had available, balance out the workload for our resource pool and the forecast was a huge opportunity."
