A good place to start is Microsoft Project. It is probably the simplest solutions that you are going to find. If Microsoft Project is quite doing the job for you then there are assortments of other software out there that can perform the same duties: Adept Tracker, Primavera, etc. The key is just to find one that you are comfortable with, really learn how to operate it, and then utilize it.

Hey Praful,

You can try something automated such as a resource management software or program. The software would give you accurate data to the last bit that how your resources are being utilized and where. Along with it there are forecasting and financial reports available that are an additional bonus.

Thanks
