A simple yet powerful team-based collaboration tool
Ideal for anyone with a busy schedule to manage or who needs to coordinate a lot of different tasks into a workable roster, Project Plan 365 is available to download for Mac, PC and Enterprise. There is also a freely available trial tool which allows you to get to know how to use the software without the need to make any financial commitment. It is designed to be a comprehensive solution for team-based collaboration challenges.
Gantt Charts and Software Schedules
Developed over 100 years ago, Gantt charts are still a much-employed method of organising schedules where tasks need to be coordinated according to importance and order. Project Plan 365 allows users to make extensive use of this sort of visual time organisation methodology in a convenient online manner. Teams can be coordinated or scheduled as the user adjusts to meet the changing needs of any project management undertaking. What makes this programme stand out from other similar systems is that it allows you to save and share your plans from any storage device or from a cloud facility so that it can be viewed and edited later on any platform or device you care to use. For field based work, it is highly advantageous. Organise your workforce in the office and make amendments on the fly once you get to site. Redeployment of any resource is simple using this package.
Usability and Cross Platform Interfacing
Designed for touch-based devices as well as traditional mouse and keyboard users, the software allows you to create activities, to insert schedules, to update tasks and even to assign resources. If you want to use it as budgeting tool, then it can generate financial reports, as well. Navigating Project Plan 365 is also simple for anyone used to the common MS Office standards. For example, you can soon access all of the familiar MS Project options - such 'Time Scale', 'Custom Views' and 'Export' - when you want to distribute information with others. The system's cloud functionality also helps users to take a flexible approach to collaboration with others, whether they are in the office or working from home. Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox and SharePoint are all supported. Just open, save and share your Gantt charts within a named project file and allow other people to view or edit your work. Indeed, international collaboration is entirely possible thanks to the fact that the programme supports more than 12 languages including all of the common European ones, such as English, German, Italian and French. The system will even allow you to account in multiple currencies and to utilise the date and time formats used in other countries. It can operate whether you have internet connectivity or not and the system has no back doors, so you can be confident that your commercially sensitive information is kept safe at all times.
This software allows users to aggregate multiple work plans in one handy dashboard that keeps scheduling and resource management clear for all who use it. Furthermore, it will be of benefit to anyone who wants to generate resource allocation reports across a wide project portfolio. It can also be used in any browser so real-time project planning can be done from just about anywhere.
