From Castellan Systems:
The Quartermaster Corps is responsible for supplying materials to an army in the field. QuarterMaster performs a similar role for projects, allowing the Project Manager request resources and helping the Resource Manager supply those requests. The package assists the Project Manager to request resources required for a project. It then helps the Resource Manager to find and allocate suitable resources to meet these requests. While QuarterMaster doesn't pretend to be a competitor of industry heavyweight products like Novient, it doesn't cost as much also. Castellan Systems is aware that some organizations don't always need a tool like that; it may be a case of using sledgehammer to hang a picture frame. QuarterMaster may just provide the right "bang for your bucks". So what does QuarterMaster do? It defines programs, projects, organizational positions and skills. It records project role requirements. It records available resource, including skills possessed. It facilitates the identification and allocation of suitably skill and available resources to meet those requirements. It graphically displays the state of request status. It generates various reports and graphs showing the resourcing position. It uses an Ms Access database that can be located in a server accessible to all required users. It comes with a 5 user license and you can buy additional licenses if required.
