Details

RationalPlan is a project management solution that comes in three different versions: two of these are on-premises while one is cloud based. The on-premises versions are single and multiple project versions. In the single project version, you can manage one project at a time whereas the multiple project version not only handles multiple projects, but also manages shared resources between them and handles any other dependencies that these projects may have between themselves. The cloud version is a multi-project version by default.

If you are looking to manage centralized resources in your company and are very budget conscious, then you could look at RationalPlan. Multiple users can use the system if you go for a cloud-based implementation.

A new version has recently been released, but the desktop versions are still going strong. Improvements in the new version (4.13) include the capability to attach documents to projects, the capability to see multiple projects simultaneously, improvements to timesheets, and some performance improvements.

The product also comes with a project viewer that allows people not associated with a project to simply view the information related to it. Think of a CEO wanting to know what is happening without needing to log into the PM solution itself. However, our strong recommendation is to download the trial and check the solution carefully before going ahead.
