Resource Guru

A web application to streamline resource scheduling


Two digital agency professionals approached us in 2011 with a vision: they wanted to replace the nightmare of Excel spreadsheets used for resource scheduling with a well thought out, focused web application that was simple and intuitive to use.

What We Did

We bought into Resource Guru's idea and developed a beautifully designed Ruby on Rails app that became the primary pillar of their business. The software includes a highly interactive Backbone.js calendar, service integrations into a payment gateway and supports multi-tenancy through account signups.


Since Resource Guru launched, they've become a highly successful startup, signing up clients such as Intel, Vodafone and VMWare, all using the software we produced. At the beginning of 2014 they were funded by Index Ventures and continue to collaborate with Platform45 to build the best resource scheduling tool on the web.

Platform45 helped us develop our web app that is loved by hundreds of companies all over the world. We see them simply as an extension of our team. I’m not sure we could ever find an outsourced company we enjoy working with more. They are a collection of extremely talented individuals who care deeply about the work they do. Could we ask for more?
