We tried this package after years of using the main competitor and have found this Meisterplan easy to use with impressive resource planning and prioritisation features.
Can be expensive to use as your needs grow.
Until now we used Excel for resource planning. With Meisterplan it was so easy to import our existing excel planning that we could start with the solution in less than a day.
In this version we still need Excel. But we know that Meisterplan will solve this dependency in the next version.
With excel we could not easily assign projects and resources and business goals. Meisterplan was the only solution that could help.
After a very short on boarding process we imported our own data and only a few moment laters we have seen where we have resource bottlenecks and overloads. That was impressive.
We would like to have some more option for the daily planning of resources.
We ever wonder where we lost time in our projects. Meisterplan visualize and analyze the resource allocations very easy.
With Meisterplan we were productive in just a few hours without extensive training. It offers the chance to use our own project management method what makes it quite simple to rollout. And ist well done for project portfolio management.
