Master Planner

By Ross Software Free to try Editors' Rating

Editors' Review Staff Feb 27, 2009
Built like a virtual whiteboard, this program helps keep track of human and material resources with no frills. The straightforward program interface is clear, graphically bringing together employee, equipment, and space availability with dates and times. You can program and schedule projects as far into the future as needed, and create Gantt charts to help allocate resources for current tasks. Most resource issues are illustrated with Gantt charts, with the characteristic boxes representing each task. Pop-up boxes and toolbars help you edit information on the charts. The program allows splitting resources into categories and restricting time allocated for staff leave, projects, or training. Overall, though this program may not be as robust as others on the market, it is a useful, simple planner that can help any small business keep better track of employees and resources.

Developer's Description

Master Planner is a graphical version of a wall planner presented as a grid with names of employees down the left and dates across the top. Add icons to grid squares to indicate the activities of employees on selected dates: holidays, project work, conferences, and so on. A status bar, tool tips, report facilities, and full online help make Master Planner easy to use. Sample planners are included to get you started. It is available as a single-user or network version.

Version 4.0 adds icon tracking feature, user-created categories, search function, and zoom and improves statistics, reports, and interface.
