Project management software to the point

A-Plan is a program developed by and for project managers that is easy to manage, covers all aspects of project management such as resource management, project controlling, document management and is also very inexpensive. Although A-Plan is deliberately kept simple in terms of its basic functions, its flexible structure means that it can also be used to manage information relating to project portfolio management (PPM), risk management and skills management. The Project Management Office (PMO) or project office will also benefit from A-Plan.
