Frequently Asked Questions
Can I track resource utilization, both billable and non-billable?
Kantata SX can track time on a project and categorize it for billable or non-billable based on rules you set. Examples of non-billable work could be Goodwill, PTO, or jury duty and utilization factors can vary on each. Goodwill, for example, may give the resource full credit for their time while PTO will be excluded.
How do I track resource availability?
Kantata provides the single pane of glass, rolling up and visually presenting all assignment details across multiple resources. This allows users to view true availability and lets them confidently assign the right resource for the project.
How do I identify the best resource to fit my needs?
A good way to start is by profiling your assignment, thus ensuring you’ve identified the skills or capabilities needed to complete the assignment. Then let Kantata recommend resources, scored based on availability and desired skills and capabilities.
