Bring Your Meisterplan Data to and from Excel

Many businesses manage detailed project data in multiple Microsoft 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.

Easily Get Your Data from Excel to Meisterplan with Quick Import

Our Quick Import is an easy copy and paste import to move your data from spreadsheets to Meisterplan within minutes. 

  • Copy and paste data from any Excel spreadsheet.
  • Use our sample spreadsheets to ensure all of the necessary information is included in your spreadsheet.
  • Update data just as quickly with the same copy and paste import.

Before implementing Meisterplan, our resource management was a game of Excel bingo: timeconsuming, cumbersome, and error prone.

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.
