RationalPlan Multi Project software is particularly helpful in managing company’s multiple projects and shares resources optimally across the organizational hierarchy. This, in turn, leads to optimally organizing resources, exercising effective control over finances, highlighting critical problems for application of correctives, constant monitoring of project progress and more.
The software exhaustively sets project tasks priorities by defining and specifying Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) which is essential for covering various critical processes of a project management system. Also, Rational Multi-Plan Project is the best application for planning projects and managing critical path required for task and resource scheduling. This supports balanced allocation of resources and handy cost estimation techniques. RationalPlan – Project Management Software offers a user-friendly step by step project guide to escort the user through the entire project management process.

|RationalPlan Multi Project – Three Different Platforms||Rating|
RationalPlan has designed and successfully launched several project management tools used to fulfill various project management needs. With RationalPlan Single Project software, one can schedule, monitor and manage unrelated projects individually.
RationalPlan Multi Project software lets one comprehensively manage multiple inter-related projects that share common resources with dependencies between their tasks.
The user should buy the Multi Project version only when wanting to simultaneously managing projects with shared resources or dependencies. If the projects are completely independent without any shared resources, there is a Single Project version should suffice.
The manufacturers have very imaginatively come out with a Project Viewer. Many of the people involved in the project work do not need to have access to all the project data but they get need to see only relevant reports. Finally, with the Project Viewer it is still possible to transfer data or generate and print the reports.
