I was just wondering how most companies have their resource schedule set up and what process they have to follow to book a resource on their project?

For example we have a resource admin and this person looks after the schedule (an excel sheet) and when I want to book a resource on my project, I have to speak to this person and then they block this persons time in the excel sheet if they are available.

Is this how every other company does it? if not, please let me know which method you know of or currently use to check resource availability and book resources for your projects.

We follow this process at work, but instead use MS Outlook and book it in the calendar there.
