What is NetSuite OpenAir Resource Management?

NetSuite OpenAir resource management provides visibility into all aspects of project resourcing. Increase utilization and manage and deploy employees based on their skills, experience, and availability. Keep the right people working on the right tasks now and as projects evolve.

Optimize Staffing and Utilization

Reduce your dependence on spreadsheets and separate staffing systems — upgrade to real-time tracking of skills and availability and centralized, up-to-date, searchable resource profiles.

We just weren’t getting the capabilities and support we needed from FinancialForce. We brought NetSuite OpenAir in and they hit it out of the park.
