“Absolutely Exceptional tool to have!”

ProsAs an assistant to a Project Manager we had our own spreadsheets that had the basic information needed. But we decided to purchase a software to rely on and make our lives easier. And so it did. We've been with VPS for about a year and are absolutely grateful for it! It has saved us from numerous mistakes and overall, helped us grow as a company since we started to keep better tabs on all ends of our planning.
ConsWe really don't have any thing negative to say but this has helped us incredibly and recommend it for everybody who needs a little help with the Project Management.

“Okay-ish”

ProsCan't really comment about this application. We tried it out for one week. Its easy to use. So far, I liked the drag and drop feature. Even my business partner who is not a computer savvy likes this program.
ConsI'm not going to complain about this application as we just use it for one week now

“Exceeded Expectations”

OverallThe 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.

“Using this software is easy to use, and a huge time saver for us.”

OverallWith 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.

“Exemplary Service and Product All the Way Around ”

ProsThe seamless integration with my entire company. No hassle, no stress.
ConsWhat 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.
Recommendations to other buyersThere 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.
