Seemless transition from Microsoft Project

Affordable. User-Friendly.

PlanStreet is an online project management and collaboration tool that provides an excellent alternative to Microsoft Project. Microsoft Project remained the industry standard for many years for businesses and project and business managers. Nowadays, PlanStreet’s online project management offers simpler and more modern experience as compared to Microsoft Project. No more hassles about versions, licenses, or online add-ons. Most Microsoft Project users switch to PlanStreet tools due to the following shortcomings:

It’s complicated and hard to understand

It is not Agile

It’s much more expensive than PlanStreet

Not suitable for Mac/Apple users

Difficult in sharing files online

Doesn’t involve the whole team

No dashboards and requires an understanding of Sharepoint

Hybrid Project Management

PlanStreet offers both Agile and Traditional project planning frameworks. Agile project management is facilitated by the Kanban and Scrum boards, whereas traditional project planning involves the dynamic Gantt Chart tool.

Our smart, collaborative features mean the whole team gets involved! Documents, checklists and comments can be attached to project tasks. Teams can update tasks, time spent, and progress, all of which are readily visible to the manager. The activity page keeps everyone in the loop, thus staying productive.

Interactive User Experience

PlanStreet offers a complete package of project portfolio management and team collaboration tools to provide you with a fulfilling experience. Our powerful Gantt Chart tool enhances task and resource management. Streamline your projects in an organized way and facilitate team collaboration on the task level, such as comments and file attachments smoothly. Automated email alerts help keep team members on track so that changes project status could be handled anytime with the mobile app.

Smart reporting features

Another feature lacking in MS Project is real-time dashboards built for better tracking. With PlanStreet, reporting stays up-to-date, and data is live all the time. There is also no need to create a new dashboard as users can import existing plans from Microsoft Project and populate their dashboards. It’s easy to view product performance immediately.

No need to buy a resource management tool separately when you subscribe to PlanStreet. PlanStreet offers timesheets and other workload management features so that you can track time along with the project. Collaborate with your team on a task level or through a social interface.

The Only Authentic Alternative

PlanStreet is a cloud-based project management software accessible from anywhere on your PC or Mac. Our easy to use collaborative software gives you a far better user experience with the same features as MS Project as well as the convenience of your PC or MAC. Export and import MPP files to view or share your project plans with ease. Mac users can edit and make changes right on their Apple computers.

    The most advantageous features are the ability to embed the intake forms into our website to have information go directly to the system. Another benefit is being able to place all of our participants into the system and track them in that system. I chose PlanStreet mainly because it was not complicated to navigate through. I like things staying simple. My overall experience was great. I fell in love with the system when I saw a demo of how it works.

    I like that I have the space to design my vision. I am able to create programs and documents. I appreciate that clients can help manage their accounts. We have switched from BestNotes, TherapyNotes because of PlanStreet’s cost, and ability to design the product.

    We have switched from TherapyNotes to PlanStreet because we needed a product that better-suited case management as opposed to therapy services.

    The staff has been super helpful and informative!
