Astena achieves breakthrough with visual resource planning.

Astena, subsidiary of the Cronos IT-group, has come to an agreement with Dime for the distribution of the visual planning tool “Astena Comfort | Resourceplanner” for the Belgian market.

With this “Astena Comfort | Resoureplanner” they add an important component to their integrated software offerings for project and service oriented organisations.
In the past few years Astena became more and more successful with specific modules based on Microsoft Dynamics’ NAV platform.

An asset in the hands of the Astena customers

Astena Comfort | Resourceplanner introduces the next generation of graphical resource planning.
Entirely web-based yet with a fluent and responsive Office-like user interface featuring menu ribbons, docking panels and drag & drop.

The profound and seamless integration between Astena Comfort | Resource Planner and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV standard service module “Astena Service Comfort” is an asset which will be played by the Astena customers in the next months.

Resource planning is a hot topic

Wim Vandesompele, managing director at Astena, clarifies the “why” of the collaboration with Dime:

“We notice in the market that there is a problem at our customers to find qualified technical resources, in other words there is a scarcity.
A realistic planning is therefore an important contribution to the profitability of the company.

Besides that “image” is important for a service company: “Customers like to work with professional service companies and are not insensitive to the extent that the technician is the right man in the right place at the requested time. As a planner this means that you require accurate information preferably in “one” system.

Moreover,  a solution has to be extremely user friendly and it should provide the planner with a visual overview to assist him in his important role.
