Target Skills Presents PlanningPME©,
A Fully Customizable and Easy-to-use Scheduling Management Tool
French software manufacturer Target Skills is attuned to the needs of small and large companies alike and is proud to present its software, PlanningPME©. This multilingual (French, German, English, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish) scheduling management tool is highly adaptable and, therefore, suitable for use by all types of companies. With PlanningPME©, your company can finally eliminate unnecessary paperwork and cumbersome scheduling boards. In addition, modifications will no longer result in endless cross-outs and corrections.
The software enables companies to manage scheduling easily and provides an accurate global view of human and material resource use in real time in just one click. Target Skills has made a downloadable trial version of PlanningPME©available for free at www.planningpme.com. The website includes several pre-set schedules (by type or by sector) as well as a range of simple, detailed function cards.
The PlanningPME© tool is suitable for a variety of business situations due to the high level of adaptability that has been built in to the software. Work days and shifts may be personalized and additional fields may be added. It is also possible to import existing databases.
With its high performance levels and user-friendliness, PlanningPME© makes it possible for any company to organize and consult resources (employees, subcontractors, vehicles, machines, facilities, etc.) and business activities (tasks, appointments, customer projects, periods of unavailability) while eliminating the need to enter information more than once.
The tool offers a number of advantages, including a user-friendly graphical interface, a wide range of available functions such as searchable human and physical resource availability (tasks to complete, schedules, appointments, scheduled operations, calculation of hours worked, absences due to yearly vacation, etc.), and the use of filters, which enables you to display only the schedule of a particular customer or project. In addition, the dual schedule/agenda function makes it possible to manage long-term projects as well as one-off events.
The “synchronization” function may be used to generate an HTML version of a given schedule. Regardless of where they are located, employees and partners can consult and print schedules in real time. The constant updating of scheduling information and a unique “locking” feature that ensures a given user may not make changes to a task while another user is in the process of making changes eliminates double-bookings.
PlanningPME runs in Access and offers compatibility with various Microsoft Windowsâ versions (Windows 95, 98, 98 SE, NT4, Millennium, 2000, XP). The software is also compatible with Oracle, MySQL, and SQL-Server. PlanningPME can also be used with the agenda feature in Outlook and with dynamic tables in Excel.
The software also offers local or remote network solutions subject to personalized feasibility studies by Target Skills.
