Project Planning Made Easy With Latest Release of Gantt Chart Software

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 3, 2011) - The latest release of popular desktop gantt chart software Project Plan offers new project planning features.

Parent company Project Plan Ltd. today announced the latest release of their popular cornerstone product, Project Plan. This latest version brings new and powerful project planning features to the hands of project managers everywhere.

With Project Plan's latest release, project managers and project team members can:

  • Quickly identify and create all tasks within the project schedule that are needed to deliver on the engagement
  • Link all interrelated tasks together
  • Assign resources to all tasks including levels of effort
  • Identify milestone tasks within the project schedule
  • Track progress on tasks against what's been originally planned for the project

"When we set out to create Project Plan for the project management software user community, we knew it had to be a solid product," states Jason Westland, CEO and president of creator Project Plan Ltd. "It's obvious that Microsoft Project is our competition, but we weren't setting out to just re-create the wheel and do what MS Project has already done. We knew we needed to create our own niche, while at the same time remain compatible with MS Project if we hoped to win over some of its user base. So, all along we've focused hard on three things: the needs of the user, usability of the software, and cost of the licenses. We figure if we can succeed in those three areas, we'll be a success."

Indeed, it not only sounds like a good formula, it also appears that Project Plan Ltd. is succeeding on all three levels. In terms of cost, Project Plan comes in at 90% less than a full user license for MS Project. As for usability, feedback from customers is indicating to Project Plan Ltd. that their product is already one of the most easy to use online gantt chart packages in the industry – if not the easiest. As for focusing on the needs of the user base – Project Plan Ltd. is listening to the feedback they're getting and all suggestions go to the design team. Those suggestions are what drive subsequent releases of the Project Plan software product.

Project Plan Ltd. is an international company with 30 professionals in three countries. The user base for their Project Plan product has grown more than 10% to over 10,000 users in more than 90 countries worldwide, making this a truly global product. Project Plan's largest growth has come from the small to medium sized business sector with growth there coming in at more than 20% year over year. That market niche continually cites price and usability as its primary reason for adopting Project Plan as its product of choice for managing ongoing engagements.

Project Plan Ltd. is offering free 14 day trials of its desktop software. To try it out on an existing project and see if it fully meets your needs, download it from Project Plan Ltd's site.
