Features and Functionality
PlanStreet makes it easy to create detailed and collaborative Gantt diagrams online. Unlike traditional Gantt charts, which need to be made in special locally-held project management software, multiple users can collaborate in real time on the cloud.
Project Portfolio Management
In addition to simple project management, PlanStreet supports project portfolio management (PPM). PPM allows users to centralize and delineate the management of key processes and methodologies that will be required for the project’s successful execution. PlanStreet features the following PPM functionalities:
Resource allocation estimates derived from created Gantt charts
Financial tracking to prevent projects running over budget
A Kanban board to simplify tasks and status updates
One of Gantt charts’ most beloved features is their ability to map out critical paths to completion in the project plan to account for delays caused by stakeholders along the way. PlanStreet takes that one step further by leveraging the power of automation to automatically update due dates and dependencies as parts of the project shift around. The software also automatically suggests milestones which can be added to the project plan. Setting regular milestones improves team morale.
Kanban and Scrum Boards
PlanStreet is also a great choice for companies planning development projects. Agile teams typically use scrum meetings and plot out progress towards sprint completion on Kanban boards which have vertically arranged columns indicating task progress. PlanStreet natively supports both these functionalities making it an ideal choice for software and development companies that want a more effective means of tracking out their progress towards a major milestone such as a new feature release.
PlanStreet is cloud-hosted. So users simply need to log in to the web application in order to get access to the software. Users can log in and update documentation each with their own accounts and receive notifications about other user activity in real time. This online environment is perfect for non-collocated team members, like remote contractors, to take an active part in the project management and planning process.
Plans and Pricing
PlanStreet is available as a free software which is limited to just 1 user and 3 projects. In order to unlock the ability to create unlimited projects, however, companies need to upgrade their plans to the paid levels. Business plan ($15/user/month) users get business-wide project and case management. On the Enterprise tier ($25/user/month) users can get personalized project portfolio management.
PlanStreet is a fully cloud-hosted solution so there are no desktop applications to worry about. Smartphone users, however, can access the web dashboard’s functionality from their smartphone. Both Android and iOS versions have been developed and can be installed through Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Worried about prying eyes spying on your project data? There’s no need to be worried. PlanStreet has put out a plain English privacy statement telling you exactly what kind of information they collect and process about their customers. PlanStreet is committed to its users’ privacy and has a dedicated Privacy Officer whose email address is listed on the statement.
Customer Service and Support
