Visual Planning is an expansive, comprehensive, and efficient system that offers a complete solution for a business’s Project Management needs. It combines the tools users need to allocate resources, manage individual projects, budgets, and workloads, and keep all reports and graphs updated in real-time.
Visual Planning is a beneficial program for companies of any size that want to streamline their scheduling and resource allocation processes. It's entirely configurable and updates in real-time, making it ideal for simultaneous use by multiple departments or multiple employees. Several levels of user privileges can be set up to keep sensitive data secured. In addition, Visual Planning integrates seamlessly with My SQL, SQL Server, Oracle databases, and other standard data formats (CSV files, spreadsheets), which eliminates the headache of duplicating data when engaging new software.
One of Visual Planning’s strong points is its ability to oversee a particular job from beginning to end. Right away, users can see which employee is booking which resource and when, and the most updated representation of current workloads and job schedules. Job data entered is accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection, regardless of the device.
This system requires no advanced IT knowledge or expertise – Visual Planning’s configuration team is standing by to assess each business’s needs and requirements, and will provide the training necessary to ensure solutions are implemented correctly and efficiently. We like its useful drag and drop scheduling function, which allows users to collaborate quickly with each other, and save valuable time in their scheduling efforts.

The seamless integration with my entire company. No hassle, no stress.
What I like least about it, is that if you have a lot of constraints, visual planning will lag. It is understandable though. Have thousands of calculations, even the greatest of the great will eventually lag too.
There are so many software's out there. I can only suggest you go with Visual Planning because its tailor made to your specifications. Its a choice really. A choice to use the "ok guys" or the guys who will go above and beyond to make your experience the best. Visual Planning does just that.

With this system we have been able to collate real time information on the allocation of resources, as well as the progress of staff through their training programme. We have been able to use the data to implement changes that can accommodate the ever changing needs of business. We have been able to identify trends, which enables is to plan pro-actively. It has also save a lot of time when planning and reporting on activities with the department.
Gary from Endeavour Speciality Chemicals Ltd
The ease of use, with the great graphics and "drag and drop" functionality was quickly adopted by the production teams. The ability to update the production plan in real time and assess delay impact upon tight delivery schedules, has been of enormous benefit to our business. We would not wish to revert to our old system. During the development and implementation phases , we had superb customer service from Oakfield Software. They were always on hand , either via email or on the phone We could not fault them.
