Pierre Demonsant, Founder and CEO of Planisware.

Planisware V6 is the successor of (P5) Planisware P5 and continues to accelerate the time-to-market of innovative products with a new design that enables faster implementation times.

  • A New User Interface: The radically redesigned user interface delivers a new minimalist look that enables users to focus more on the data, and less on the tool itself. The new design is optimized for use with touchscreen devices, and allows users to increase their workspace at their own pace.
  • New Capabilities: The new Meeting Management feature was included to facilitate Portfolio reviews, Stage-Gate reviews, Agile reviews and other meetings. The new resource management capabilities offer a more streamlined way to manage already allocated resources as timelines change. The Agile development features in Planisware are borrowed from a methodology that originates from software development but that is now trending in - and benefiting - product development.
  • More Control for the User Community: End users can add tools, tabs, screens, features, and modules as they progress, as well as access documentation and E-Learning directly from the system. Administrators are able to update the data model and execute configurations using a Web browser. Support teams can also quickly enter the System Console.
  • New Technology:  Leveraged symmetric multi-processing (SMP) and in-memory computing (IMC) have significantly improved the software performance. Now the V6 architecture can handle up to 3 times as many users as before.
