Pros
Customer support has been very responsive. Outstanding cloud based scheduling software available.
Actually the benefits can be great, once you set up your business data to fit the software, so it can visualize your current status.
Their customer service is amazing and knowledgeable, their response times are impressive even though we are in different time zones. It has helped take a job shop environment to the next level.
Cons
The simplicity of the software is also its weakness - because the product would be limited to smaller manufacturing companies.
The inability to slide jobs while in the resource group and resource view.
Also lack of "worker" accounts which can update task completion percentage directly so the manager can see how things are going in real time.

A versatile and simply maintained product has transformed our Production Scheduling

Reviewed 5 years ago

Improved visibility, prior warning of over-capacity and late running. The ability to examine scenarios and quoted work accurately.

Pros

The software is easy to use and brings huge benefit; we are able to schedule production runs through multi-discipline machines and processes in a manner not possible pre-JPI. The appearance is easy to the eye and the information available is powerful. I am able to examine job schedule and resource loading at a glance and utilise the flexibility of the software to provide progress information on our...

Cons

The reporting section of the software is powerful but could be improved slightly - I'm sure the minor issues that remain will be ironed out.

Vendor response

Dear Jonathan, Thank you very much for taking time to share your thoughts about just plan it. It is a pleasure to have customers like you who are challenging, but also appreciative. We are committed on enhancing the software ... also with respect to the reporting capabilities,

Intuitive and a down-to-earth solution for gaining control and saving administration time

Reviewed 6 years ago

...

Pros

You have more or several tasks to be planned and executed consisting of connected and sequenced activities using different work resources (man, machines, others) You also have an idea of the duration of each of the individual activities, and you also know what available time resources you have. Also you do not have to manage a complexity which calls for a project, implementing ERP-systems and the like. In a structured and clever way you want to stay in control without overloading your head, using notepads, using different home-grown excel-sheets, fire-fighting, follow-up chasing and other. You will probably find the answer to your wishes investigating Just-Plan-It. A fast implemented, intuitive and down-to-earth solution for gaining control and saving your administration time.

Cons

No cons. This tool is based on sound practice-oriented principles. But of course you must set the scene for the tool to operate. That is defining your available resources and continuously feed the system with your tasks, task relations and task progress updates. This continued feeding can be automated. But this is a different story. I have given 4 stars across all subjects. I could have given it 5 stars across all subjects. But you must always leave room for vendor improvements.

Vendor response

Hello Bent, We are excited about your feedback, and about your commitment for our product, We appreciate that you leave room for vendor improvement and we are very committed filling this room :-) It is good to have users challenging us. Easy and happy scheduling. Your just plan it team

Disappointing experience with the [SENSITIVE CONTENT]

Reviewed 8 months ago

This whole experience has caused so much stress, all the time and money wasted, in my 20 years of working, never have I been treated so badly by a supplier. Maybe it is different cultures, but where I come from the client comes first.

Pros

I enjoyed some aspects and there is definitely room for improvement, but their server did not respond to our server therefore we could not use the programme without huge embarrassment when in production meetings. It would take keep hanging and I would have to reboot just to update one item, i.e marking off if a process was complete. Also I had dealt with [SENSITIVE CONTENT], who I thought were helpful but apparently I was a difficult client according to the feedback I received from [SENSITIVE CONTENT] who is cancelling my subscription without any form of monetary refund or any help from his other SA clients to see if it is our Infrastructure that is the problem. Be very careful when dealing with them as in I my experience is [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is unethical.

Cons

The [SENSITIVE CONTENT]. Just walks away from problems, with not opportunity to sort issues out.

Vendor response

Hello Lynne, Thank you very much for your emotional review. I sense that your comments, which were blocked by this platform, referred to me. "Me" - this is Martin, CEO and Co-Owner of NETRONIC (the company that builds and runs just plan it). I am open to taking constructive feedback. And both me and my team happily go the extra mile for most of our customers. However, a customer/vendor relationship must be based on an equilibrium of giving and taking. Your company and my company never achieved this equilibrium. Hard to say way. But obvious to say that we both did not manage this. Hence, it is the best for both of us that you decided to cancel your subscription. Take care and good luck with your new scheduling approach.

VERY EASY TO USE AND REACH IN FUNCTIONALITIES THAT CAN SUIT A MAKE TO ORDER MANUFACTURING COMPANY

Reviewed 5 years ago

A better planning process and a reduction of delivery delays. A better utilization of manufacturing resources.

Pros

CUSTOMER ORDERS LEAD THE PLANNING PROCESS TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE REAL CAPACITY OF DIFFERENT RESOURCES. YOU CAN EASILY FIND POSSIBLE WAYS, IF ANY, TO AVOID DELIVERY DELAYS. THE DOCUMENTATION ASSISTS YOU IN LEARNING ALL FUNCTIONALITIES AND YOU CAN BE SURE THAT IF YOU FIND A PROBLEM YOU WILL GET ON LINE SUPPORT IN A FEW MINUTES ( THIS IS REALLY GREAT). MANY WEBINARS ARE ALSO PLANNED TO INCREASE YOUR...

Cons

IN MY OPINION ONLY THE ENTERPRISE VERSION OF JUST-PLAN-IT IS ABLE TO COMPLY ( AND VERY WELL) WITH THE REAL PLANNING NEEDS OF A MANUFACTURING COMPANY (EVEN A SMALL ONE). THE OTHER TWO BASIC VERSIONS CAN BE USED ONLY FOR AN INITIAL TRAINING BUT THEIR LIMITATIONS PREVENT FOR A USEFUL APPLICATION IN MANY ACTUAL SITUATIONS. NOT POSSIBLE TO BUY THE LICENSE BUT YOU CAN ONLY RENT IT

Vendor response

Ciao Massimo, Thanks a lot for your great feedback. We are happy working with you and continue to strive hard meeting your requirements

just plan it Scheduling software review

Reviewed 6 years ago

JPI is simple, fast and intuitive to use. Their great customer support team helped us tailor our requirements and made sure our ERP interfaced seamlessly with scheduling making us more effective in helping our customers through better planning. Their Kaizen culture proves that JPI listens to their customer's requirements and strive for constant improvement with each update. I am happy to see new features on a regular basis and regularly recommend JPI. Their customer service is amazing and knowledgeable, their response times are impressive even though we are in different time zones. It has helped take a job shop environment to the next level.

Pros

Ease of use and excellent customer service. Integrates to our ERP seamlessly.

Cons

I have no complains. Their team is very helpful and quick when resolving bugs and implementing requests even though we are on different time zones.

Vendor response
