Plan is a project planner which is similar
to, and compatible with, Microsoft Project. Plan for Windows is supported on
Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP based desktop PCs.
Plan for Windows can be used in various ways:
As an inexpensive alternative to Microsoft Project. Plan doesn't have all
the bells and whistles of Microsoft Project, but this makes it much easier to
use. This makes it a highly cost effective
alternative to Microsoft Project.
As a stand-alone project planning tool - it is a fully functional project
estimation tool. It supports creation and editing of project plans, including
recalculation of a project schedule.
Use in conjunction with Pocket Plan on a Pocket PC or Handheld PC. This
allows you to access and update your project plans anywhere - at your desktop
or in a meeting or anywhere else via your Pocket PC.
- As a viewer for Microsoft Project files - it can directly read and write
Microsoft Project files (MPP/MPD/MPX can be read, MPD/MPX can be written).
