WHY USE VISUAL PLANNING ?
Originally, VISUAL PLANNING was based upon wall paintings, therefore it still has a “manual” feel to the presentation and management of events.
But today, it goes much further!
VISUAL PLANNING meets the requirements of businesses for scheduling and operational management. Used by working groups to manage and oversee, in real time, their resources, teams, clients etc. It thus constitutes therefore an essential “dashboard” of your company’s activities.
More than just a wall calendar, or a personal productivity program, VISUAL PLANNING is a tool to support decision making, employing the following characteristics, reunited in an exceptional format:
VISUAL PLANNING IS TOTALLY CONFIGURABLE. It has been chosen by thousands of enterprises across a wide range of enterprises of different sizes.
You can simultaneously handle your teams, clients, projects and resources, as you need them.
FACILITY OF USE ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS
The graphical user interface provides an immediate overview of the information.
Its icons, its drag and drop facility, combine to render use of the software intuitive and easy for all.
Despite the sheer number of functions, VISUAL PLANNING, once configured, is mainly used by simply sliding icons around with your mouse, and calling up favorite displays which are in direct relationship with the requirement being handled, by clicking a list.
VISUAL PLANNING is used on a daily basis by personnel with no IT training or experience.
All users (both local and remote) connected to a VISUAL PLANNING server can simultaneously view or modify the same, shared schedule.
The management functions and user rights are used to define and restrict the access rights for each user of the various schedules, both in terms of reading (confidentiality) and writing (security).
DECISION MAKING SUPPORT
The filters, defined in accordance with your criteria, are called up by a single click: you can therefore research the resources with the characteristics and availability for the required task.
You can also valorize the tasks using multiple criteria of choice, calculate, in real time, costs, income and labor costs, in order to control budgets, invoicing elements, time spent, vacation time, weekly working time, etc.
The analysis functions can be used to display all sorts of cross table, analyzing the activities, then printing them out and making the most of these tables.
Indicators (control totals) displayed on the schedule, allowing you to measure, instantaneously, the consequence of your schedule.
A schedule for each resource is also available with a single click:
For example, if you schedule the assignment of personnel to a worksite, you can simultaneously show the scheduling for the personnel and the progress of the worksite.
Links between events and constraints increase the power and operational safety of VISUAL PLANNING.
MULTIPLE OPERATING SYSTEMS
VISUAL PLANNING can be used on all Windows based Operating Systems (XP or superior) and all compatible networks, including LINUX platforms.
It connects directly to Access, SQL-Server, MySQL, Oracle, MariaDB and POstGreSQL databases.
