Visual Planning overview

What is Visual Planning?

Visual Planning is resource management and scheduling platform that helps companies manage their assets and day-to-day operations. The functionalities of the cloud-based software include human resource management, construction scheduling, project management, fleet management, field service scheduling, CRM and more.

Visual Planning allows users to manage projects, workloads, and budgets, allocate resources, and update graphs and reports in real time. The drag and drop feature makes it easy for users to update, manage and create their schedules.

Visual Planning displays real-time workloads and calculated metrics to measure budget vs cost, capacity vs demand, and planned vs actual results. This allows managers to anticipate overheads and bottlenecks and make informed decisions to solve problems before they actually occur.

In order to facilitate resource planning on the go, Visual Planning provides functionality for mobile devices to access the solution and manage activities remotely. It supports integration with multiple databases such as MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle, as well as data formats such as CSV files and spreadsheets.

excellent software and its use is recommended

Pros
It allows managing resources in a more efficient way and also integrating with the rest of the company's applications, it is easy to use, with a very intuitive interface, you can access system information from anywhere and at any time

Cons
Implementing a planning system is not a matter of a few days, but it is a complicated process that requires a lot of attention, so a thorough maintenance work must be carried out. At the same time, the template must be kept up-to-date in the way it is used in terms of obtaining the data and analyzing and managing them

Pros
As an assistant to a Project Manager we had our own spreadsheets that had the basic information needed. But we decided to purchase a software to rely on and make our lives easier. And so it did. We've been with VPS for about a year and are absolutely grateful for it! It has saved us from numerous mistakes and overall, helped us grow as a company since we started to keep better tabs on all ends of our planning.

Cons
We really don't have any thing negative to say but this has helped us incredibly and recommend it for everybody who needs a little help with the Project Management.

Pros
Can't really comment about this application. We tried it out for one week. Its easy to use. So far, I liked the drag and drop feature. Even my business partner who is not a computer savvy likes this program.

Cons
I'm not going to complain about this application as we just use it for one week now

The ease of use, with the great graphics and "drag and drop" functionality was quickly adopted by the production teams. The ability to update the production plan in real time and assess delay impact upon tight delivery schedules, has been of enormous benefit to our business. We would not wish to revert to our old system. During the development and implementation phases , we had superb customer service from Oakfield Software. They were always on hand , either via email or on the phone We could not fault them.

With this system we have been able to collate real time information on the allocation of resources, as well as the progress of staff through their training programme. We have been able to use the data to implement changes that can accommodate the ever changing needs of business. We have been able to identify trends, which enables is to plan pro-actively. It has also save a lot of time when planning and reporting on activities with the department.
