[prMac.com] Craiova, Romania – Stand By Soft is pleased to announce the release of version 4.5 for its project management suite RationalPlan. Current version offers better reporting capabilities, more data exports to .xls files, enhanced notification settings and much more.
RationalPlan is a project management solution that puts the accent on productivity, ease of use and fast learning. It was created to help different users beginning with newbie project managers, continuing with users that need an environment to handle multiple projects and up to companies that need a distributed solution with concurrent access.
Important changes for this version:
* Export projects and risks to spreadsheet applications
* Enhanced resource distribution reports by adding different types of work and cost
* Added the possibility to generate the cost distribution report per categories of resources
* Allow assigning resources on projects
* Added customizable deadline notification settings
Spreadsheets are very useful products because they are easy to use, offer strong computational features and are flexible when it comes to handling data. RationalPlan users now have the possibility to export projects and risks as spreadsheets files (Excel, OpenOffice etc.) for an easier manipulation.
Current version also offers improved reporting. The resource distribution reports can be generated for different types of work and cost (assigned, actual, remaining and overtime) while the cost reports can be generated per categories of resources (human, material or costs).
On the Server side the notification settings got richer by adding customizable deadline reminders. This way users can configure who will get the reminder (project manager, responsible or assigned resource) and when (how many days before the actual deadline date).
Other features were added within version 4.5 including the possibility to assign resources per project, special rendering for completed milestones on Gantt charts and many more.
