[prMac.com] Craiova, Romania - RationalPlan Project Management Software version 4.3 is ready for the public. Current version offers easier printing capabilities, more reports, better integrations with Microsoft Project and last but not least automatic email notifications within the Server system.
RationalPlan is a project management solution that puts the accent on productivity, ease of use and fast learning. It was created to serve many types of users starting from novice project managers, users that need an environment to handle multiple projects and up to companies that need a distributed solution with concurrent access. For the latter case RationalPlan Server can be used as an on-premise solution or in the cloud aka SAAS offering.
The On Premise solution requires the customer to download, install and manage upgrades on his own hardware. The price for the system is a one time payment that will vary depending on the number and type of users. Running it in the Cloud has the advantage of not bothering with all the above maintenance problems. There are several tiers available depending on the users needs: Beginner, Master and Production. This type of solution is offered as a monthly payment.
Important changes for this version:
* More reports: added resource costs distribution report, added resource work distribution report
* Easier printing capabilities
* Better MS Project files loading
* Automatic email notifications on Server
Extra reports are now available. Users can generate cost or work related distributions for resources. In case someone besides the project manager needs to see the cost distribution for the project or for resources but does not have access to the free RationalPlan Viewer or for security reasons can not receive the entire project file, a print out on paper or .pdf document is the right solution. Using these reports it is possible to see how the work is distributed across resources and detect where overallocations or overtime costs appear.
Users can now find easier to print reports as printing settings can be accessed more rapidly directly from the print preview mode. Additionally more details (placeholders for example) were added for an easier usage.
At users requests RationalPlan Server is now capable of sending automatic email notifications. Task deadlines are no longer a problem. The application remembers you when a deadline is approaching so you can take the necessary measures for that deadline to be respected.
Besides these new features some minor improvements were also made regarding processing Microsoft Project files.
RationalPlan suite includes:
* RationalPlan Single Project - an alternative to Microsoft Project and the perfect solution for novice or accidental project managers
* RationalPlan Multi Project - project management software for multiple projects, projects that are interconnected through dependencies and share common resource
* RationalPlan Project Viewer - free project management software viewer, the solution for anyone (from project stakeholders to team workers) to view projects details
* RationalPlan Project Server - a centralized place to manage the company's projects while offering concurrent access to different users
