New Cor­po­ra­te Design and Opti­mi­zed Usability

Thanks to a new sur­face, the new ver­si­ons of the PLANTA pro­ject, PLANTA port­fo­lio, and PLANTA pul­se pro­ject manage­ment soft­ware come with sub­stan­ti­al impro­ve­ments, espe­cial­ly with respect to the usa­bi­li­ty of the program.

PLANTA pres­ents a new modern cor­po­ra­te design. The new appearan­ce not only pro­vi­des soft­ware, print, and web­site with a fresh new look, but it is also sup­po­sed to gene­ra­te a bet­ter user expe­ri­ence for PLANTA users. The new expe­ri­ence-ori­en­ted design makes it easier for users to use PLANTA’s strong func­tio­n­a­li­ty. This will fur­ther inten­si­fy the clo­se rela­ti­ons­hip bet­ween PLANTA and its cus­to­mers — in addi­ti­on to the accus­to­med excel­lent ser­vice and inte­res­ting events. Last but not least, this will also help PLANTA to streng­t­hen it’s strong mar­ket position.

The new slo­gan „PLANTA – the pro­ject pro­fes­sio­nals“ puts empha­sis on the deca­de-long expe­ri­ence as a manu­fac­tu­rer of reli­able and pro­ven pro­ject manage­ment soft­ware and its com­mit­ted effort for the suc­cess of the pro­jects of its customers.

The new soft­ware ver­si­ons inclu­de the fol­lowing func­tio­n­al highlights:

Gene­ral

You can now access favo­ri­tes and recent­ly view­ed pro­jects direct­ly from the user menu. 

The new design gives the sys­tem a neat and modern design which hel­ps users to com­ple­te their todo items easier and fas­ter than ever before.

PLANTA pro­ject

The new hour check pro­vi­des a clear over­view of the hours repor­ted on the cur­rent project.

Time record­ing and other func­tions have been exten­ded and desi­gned more user friendly. 

Indi­vi­du­al sta­tus reports can now be expor­ted to PowerPoint.

In com­plex sche­du­les, e.g. in lar­ge pro­grams, depen­den­ci­es of indi­vi­du­al todo items can be iden­ti­fied more easily.

PLANTA port­fo­lio

The opti­ons wit­hin the port­fo­lio simu­la­ti­on have been stron­gly exten­ded and impro­ved. It is now pos­si­ble to

• simu­la­te avail­ab­le capa­ci­ty and effort
• simu­la­te the pro­ject runtime
• com­pa­re two simulations.

PLANTA cus­to­mi­zer

A new update pro­ce­du­re has been imple­men­ted to auto­ma­te pre­vious­ly necessa­ry manu­al work steps. This allows for a sub­stan­ti­al reduc­tion of effort, run­ti­me, and error rates. 

Via new func­tions in the Cus­to­mi­zer, this app­li­ca­ti­on can easi­ly be adjus­ted to the cor­po­ra­te design of the customer.

PLANTA pul­se

The func­tio­n­a­li­ty of PLANTA pul­se has been great­ly exten­ded. The exten­si­ons pri­ma­ri­ly con­cern the addressa­bi­li­ty of data, the struc­tu­ring of pro­jects and boards, and the com­pi­la­ti­on of pro­ject teams with dif­fe­rent aut­ho­riz­a­ti­ons. The new page menu pro­vi­des more work space, grea­ter cla­ri­ty, and direct access to the most important functions.

Via the new search func­tion, all stored infor­ma­ti­on can be sear­ched. Results can be fil­te­red via fur­ther search options.

A note func­tion for the fast crea­ti­on of todo items direct­ly in the sys­tem has been implemented.

Short­cuts which are inter­gra­ted In PLANTA pul­se allow fast navi­ga­ti­on in the system. 

Ano­t­her novel­ty is the opti­on to recei­ve noti­fi­ca­ti­ons on recent chan­ges to cards direct­ly in the system.

The opti­ons for con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on of pro­jects wit­hin PLANTA pul­se has been great­ly exten­ded. Amongst other things, pro­ject teams with dif­fe­rent aut­ho­riz­a­ti­ons can now be put together.

In the My Pro­jects view, pro­jects can be admi­nis­te­red. Each pro­ject has its own start page. In the per­so­nal Dash­board, each employee can store his/her own indi­vi­du­al fil­ters to direct­ly access his/her todo items. The­re are also alter­na­ti­ve views on the todo items in the system.

The docu­men­ta­ti­on of PLANTA pul­se has been lin­ked in the user menu.

Details on the cur­rent relea­ses can be found in the Release Notes in PLANTA Wiki. The new ver­si­ons can be down­loa­ded in the cus­to­mer area of the web­site.
