“We have been using Visual Planning Version 4 for many years now, explains Maxime Durand, operation manager. As the team was growing, indeed the application is used by more than 80 persons; we needed to migrate from Version 4 to 5 to gain in user-friendliness and, above all, in mobility.”
“Since we migrated to Version 5, our everyday work has become even easier than before, especially using all kinds of devices to follow operations in real time. From tablets to cell phones synchronized with PC’s, my team and I can be everywhere without losing track of information.
To summarize, we can say that Visual Planning does it all; from scheduling equipment and teams to planning transports. We know exactly where everything is located and where everybody is working and for how long. Intuitive and user-friendly, Visual Planning is used everyday by our teams even before opening our emails in the morning! We would be lost without it.”
