Ganttic product overview
Ganttic is a resource management and project portfolio planning platform. It is an ideal tool for scheduling people, equipment, facilities, and other resources. Create plans from the point of view of resources or projects and customize views and reports using your own unique data.
Ganttic combines the flexibility of spreadsheets with the ease of use and specific features of dedicated resource management software. The cloud-based application is an alternative solution to limited Excel spreadsheets as well as overly complicated ERPs. It satisfies the needs of most PMOs in every business sector.
Ganttic gives control to the user to plan both human and non-human resources simultaneously. It has been providing a versatile planning and management solution for its clients for the past 10 years, serving clients from 6 continents. Based in Estonia, an emerging technology hub in Northern Europe, the app connects teams, clients, and stakeholders while providing a transparent, visual overview of the entire portfolio.
Pros of Ganttic
- Portfolio optimization: Ganttic optimizes your portfolio by going beyond matching project capacities. It also picks the right resource for the job and the right projects for your organization. Drag-and-drop scheduling makes it easy to update plans and reallocate resources quickly and on the fly, helping eliminate project bottlenecks and unnecessary workplace stress. Built in metrics such as resource and task utilization enable users to make more informed decisions while also reducing resource stealing and overbookings.
- Resource tracking and project planning: The app’s custom data fields help you manage your global and dispersed interdepartmental teams by providing a way to organize, filter, and group data that matters to you. View plans with Gantt charts for more accurate, long-term forecasting, or see projects as Kanban boards for an alternative perspective. Unlimited users mean that the plans can be viewed by your whole team, but customizable editing and viewing rights protect your plans from data tampering.
- Extensible features: Ganttic integrates natively with Google and Outlook Calendar and is extensible through a REST API and webhooks. Features also include automated reports, unlimited sharing and users, and customer support, providing you a versatile planner for your specific needs.
Cons of Ganttic
- Longer setup time: Initial setup can take a bit longer because of personalizing unique client data.
Breakdown of core features
A Gantt chart calendar view provides a high-level visual overview of your projects and resources. Zoom in and out to plan for the long term, or get real-time insights of current projects. Views also create a shareable snapshot of your plans, paring down on information overload and helping you share only the relevant information with relevant parties.
Optional custom fields
All data fields in Ganttic are customizable and optional. Choose only the data that is useful for your specific work tasks. Once you add information regarding tasks, projects, and/or resources, you can then filter and group based around the data. This allows you to hone in on the most meaningful aspects of plans and prevents you from dealing with unwanted or distracting features.
Flexible point of views
Ganttic supports all project and resource management methodologies. You can plan from the perspective of your projects or resources. Seeing your unassigned and underutilized resources more clearly improves resource efficiency, so projects can be delivered more consistently on time and within budget. Utilization graphs help balance the loads between teams, promoting healthier team dynamics and reducing overtime.
