Bring Your Meisterplan Data to and from Excel
Many businesses manage detailed project data in multiple Excel spreadsheets. This provides good support for the implementation of individual projects, but to make strategic project portfolio decisions, you need to have integrated data with an overview of all information from various data sources. Replace those numerous spreadsheets by loading your existing data in Meisterplan to experience quality portfolio planning.

Meisterplan opened our eyes to resource bottlenecks and new portfolio solutions.
I give Meisterplan an A+ for the experience of modifying the project timeline and resourcing. Consider this model if you’ve struggled to forecast resource capacity using spreadsheets or large commercial tools.
Everyday is a Meisterplan Day. Thanks to the simplicity of the product and its excellent usability the Project Portfolio Process PPM was holistically optimized and strategic decisions for projects ensured. Eager to further enhance maturity of PPM with future releases of the product.
There is no other product that does what Meisterplan does in terms of portfolio management and resource management without unessential extra features. If there were another product that does what Meisterplan does, I would have found it, because I tried them all.
Without Meisterplan, portfolio decisions during crises like this are not well-informed and have unpredictable outcomes.
Meisterplan gives me an overview of our global IT project landscape. A step-by-step implementation enabled us to cope with the complexity of our project portfolio. When setting up our PMO, we oriented ourselves strongly towards Lean PPM.
Meisterplan helps us deliver our projects on time, within the agreed budget, and in top quality.
