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

Visual Planning V7 Makes A World Of Difference

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Software Advice

VP helps us to see data more clearly, allowing us to make the decisions that matter, when they matter. This can help to operate more efficiently and allows us to communicate and share information to any user groups, when they need it, in a format that works for them, whatever the device they are using.

Pros
Visual Planning now has a modern and sleek look and feel to it. Previous incarnations were always a little behind the times, but now it looks and feels good. It is now easier to 'see' the key data, manage it and share it, making it highly valuable for the business and allowing us to operate efficiently and effectively.

Cons
It isn't a 2 minute setup, which won't work too well for small businesses, as it front loads some of the costs. For medium to larger businesses this won't be an issue, as they will have a ready to go tool that works for them, out of the box and the value of the configuration will far outweigh the costs of doing it wrong.

Nous avions besoin d’un outil permettant la planification d’événement avec un degré d’information plus riche que ce que propose notre société. L’outil, une fois maîtriser, permet d’avoir une richesse d’information et de données et colle à la réalité du terrain.

Pros
L’app en mobilité pour les métiers d’intervention client et une interface personnalisable à la main de l’administrateur pour répondre à un besoin et une ergonomie réelle

Cons
Nécessite une formation pour s’approprier toutes les fonctionnalités
