The ARCOS platform currently allows for the calling and management of resources for an impending event. The addition of Resource Planner handles the pre-event planning process that was missing. This solution enables the user to allocate resources per location, track requests per contractor and calculate total number or requests and commitments.
Resource Planner can be found on the Planning tab within the ARCOS platform. Clicking Resource Planner opens the dashboard, allowing the user to create new or manage any active events which are displayed on individual Event Cards.
Event Cards represent and display information related to the individual Event listed, including:
Event Name - Any issue requiring resources.
Number of Resources - This number is generated from the difference between Requested and Committed.
When still in need of Committed Resources, the negative number will appear in the color Orange. Over committed positive Resources numbers will appear in Green.
• Requested - Total number of resources requested by all the locations in the event.
• Committed - total number of resources received from responders.
• Allocated - total number of resources allocated to all locations requesting resources.
• Arrived - total number of resources that have arrived on site.
Manage - Click to edit the event.
From this Resource Planner home page the user can Filter the displayed Events by Name or Sort by Name, Number Requested, or Date Created.
This section also allows the user to create a New Plan by clicking the + New Resource Planner button. For more info, go here.
