How Meisterplan Is Different
"Meisterplan doesn’t go below allocations of people to projects. Consequently, it’s relatively easy to maintain the data and get useful outputs that show the capacity and availability of your teams. So it should be far more likely that Meisterplan gets adopted. Actually, it doesn’t need to be adopted or even used by the majority of your people in order to yield a useful capacity forecast.
There’s a visually appealing and easy to use interface showing a resource histogram in context of the projects in the portfolio. You can get a lot done by dragging project start and end dates around the timeline. And, you can pull projects into and out of the portfolio quite easily, facilitating a pretty useful what-if scenario.
A tighter set of function has driven a lower cost to make and maintain the software, a lower cost to support it, a lower cost to run it, and ultimately a lower price to the users."
