GamePlan is a visual project management platform that is used to plan, schedule and track projects. It is suitable for businesses of all sizes in industries such as consulting, manufacturing, construction, government, marketing and technology. Individuals can also utilize the system.

Users can plan their projects by drawing project workflows on the GamePlan Whiteboard, which provides a visualization of the project plan. Users can position and link tasks to show the project workflow on the Whiteboard, and GamePlan’s scheduling engine automatically creates a resource-based Gantt chart for project scheduling. Updates to the Whiteboard are automatically reflected in Gantt charts.

Timesheets keep the project schedule up to date and show how delays may affect project deliverables. The timesheet visualizations help users set achievable timelines for deliverables given team availability.

Pricing is per user per month. Support is provided via email and an online knowledge base.

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 10

    Good tool with unique feature and very prompt and responsive support.

    Pros

    I was looking for quite some time for a tool that would really make my life easier during the project planning phase. There are many tools out there with many nice features, however, as for the planning phase, they all miss out. You can create WBS, you can plan in Gantt, do a a network diagram, but all these methods are, from my experience, very non-intuitive, hard to read, and thus hard to get buy-in of the stakeholders.

    In this GamePlan I finally found what I was looking for, at least for the planning part. The visual planning is very intuitive and straightforward, which - coming from real-life experience - significantly helps all stakeholders to understand which activities are needed, their dependencies, complexities, and helps to reveal activities which might have been forgotten.

    The nice thing is that you can actually use the functionality for mind-mapping, too, and then transform it to activities flow (a project network diagram, actually, just much more easy to read and understand).

    The automatic transformation of the diagram to Gantt chart is awesome as well. So you can provide traditional view on the project plan to all those who require it.

    And you can export the data into Excel and play with it further, e.g. use it as input for Office Timeline.

    Cons

    The tool is still a little bit hard to use for tracking of activities progress and related team management.
    But the development team is very responsive to customers' feedback and they are developing the product continuously, addressing all the relevant inputs and requests they get. That is at least my experience from the past few months of my usage of the software.

    Pros

    GamePlan makes my life so much easier. It allows me to schedule out my books and projects so that I always know if I'm going to meet a deadline... and if I'm going to miss it, by how much. It's a cleverly designed tool that makes me feel calmer and more in control of my business, projects, and deadlines. I'm super grateful this exists.

    Cons

    It took me a few minutes to get used to the user interface, but once I did, it became intuitive. They have good tutorials and solid support, so I was able to get the hang of it pretty quickly.
