How is Meisterplan unique?
Meisterplan is designed with simplicity in mind. You can get a clear view of your entire project portfolio and an overview of all of your resources, including roles and skills, without needing to open multiple windows or tabs.
Meisterplan brings resource management to a new level of efficiency. Not only can you add and assign resources to projects, but you can also analyze resource utilization and evaluate alternatives. Meisterplan is designed to help you identify and eliminate bottleneck resources before they even occur.
Another unique aspect of Meisterplan is its real-time scenario planning capability. While in Scenario mode, you can foresee the outcome of specific changes and ensure that you are making better business decisions. Without affecting your permanent plan of record and simply with a click of a mouse, you can adjust your project portfolio to determine:
whether your plan is realistic
if capacity allows for more projects
whether any departments are overloaded
the optimal time and place for each project
Once you are satisfied with your scenario, effortlessly apply it as your plan of record.
