About 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

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.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Switching to Visual Planning

Visual Planning allowed for more customisation and meant we didn't have to 'fit' the software, the software 'fitted us'. The licencing costs and structure also worked well for our business.

VP is a good product, but the employees make it great

Reviewed on 29/09/2020

Pros

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] made the purchasing and implementation of VP for our company easy and enjoyable. They're both extremely knowledgeable on their assigned topics, and helped facilitate the building and implementation of VP into our company with ease. VP is a huge step up from our prior method of tracking/calendars.

Cons

It has MANY layers. While it is a good thing, so an outsider/average user it can be confusing or intimidating.

Visual Planning has had a huge impact on our ability to schedule. What used to be in numerous sharepoint sites, excel spreadsheets and access databases are now in one tool with true multi-user access. Our team is extremely happy with what we have been able to do with Visual Planning. The use continues to grow as more and more people see the capability.

Pros

Visual Planning is a great solution for us for two reasons:
1) It is extremely flexible and customizable. No matter how complex your scheduling is, Visual Planning can be set up to do it. Multiple level scheduling, custom data fields and forms, powerful linking and data relationships, event reporting and dashboards are all possible with Visual Planning.
2) The visual interface. We have extremely complex scheduling requirements. We need see multiple pieces of equipment, their locations, their associated tests, manpower and auxillary equipment all in one place. Visual Planning is only solution out there with that capability. It lets us readily see what is going on with our schedule *and* easily modify and change things while seeing the implications.

Cons

The only downside to Visual Planning is that is is so powerful, sometimes there is a bit of a learning curve. With that said, the Visual Planning team is a great help in creating interfaces and layouts that are useful and helpful.
