Product intro

Meisterplan is a browser-based project portfolio and resource management tool. With a simple, clear graphic interface, users can view, manage and model work demand against resource capacity. It enables managers to capture current and forecast demand, across the whole organisation and divided into appropriate portfolios of work. Projects, BAU and other time can be prioritised, so a clear view of all demand is available.

Capacity is defined by creating the generic roles within the organisation, combined with the named resources that fulfil those roles. Work can be planned by both role and resource and modelled in real-time ‘what-if’ scenarios, to produce realistic alternative schedules that can be delivered. Designed to work with your current tools, whether spreadsheets or Enterprise PPM, Meisterplan can deployed rapidly and is available as SaaS or on-premise.
