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.

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.

Testimonials

    "We were just stuck with Microsoft Project and had to invest a lot of time managing project plans. PlanStreet’s traditional PPM platform provides an agile flavor while assisting us to better track phases, tasks, and milestones. Street Financials assists with budget creation, forecast, and actual expenditure tracking. We are glad that we made the right move."

    "PlanStreet has provided us a platform to manage both Agile and Traditional projects in the same tool. Our design team has benefited from Street Board while using Agile Scrum and SAFe approaches. The IT department prefers Traditional for the Workday ERP roll out. Senior management gets to monitor and track all projects using Street Portfolio Management. PlanStreet is the way forward."

    "We had been using Asana for a few years to manage our remote development teams. But when I saw PlanStreet’s Street Board, Backlog and sprint boards demo, the decision was automatically made. Our product bugs, backlog, and new releases are just so nicely managed in PalnStreet. I would encourage software development firms to try PlanStreet’s Agile platform."
