Onepoint Introduces HTML5 User Interface with PROJECTS 11
Graz, November 07, 2012
New major version includes more than 50 usability improvements and a visual, interactive resource planning tool.
Onepoint Software, the leading provider of integrated project and portfolio management (PPM) software, has released version 11 of its award-winning enterprise solution onepoint PROJECTS. Across industries onepoint PROJECTS is known as one of the most easy-to-use PPM solutions. Its solid feature set ranges from agile and formal project planning over monitoring and controlling to extensive reporting functions. The new major version introduces a completely redesigned user interface based on HTML5 and a visual resource planning tool supporting drag & drop resource assignment.
"HTML5 is the new de-facto standard on the Web," said Gerald Aquila, founder and CEO of Onepoint. "By moving away from Java in the browser and, at the same time, maintaining our level of interactivity, we have created a totally new user experience for Web based project management."
The new HTML5 interface provides users with all benefits of modern web browsers such as fast and incremental loading of pages, find-in-text functionality and easy bookmarking. In addition, onepoint PROEJCTS comes with over 50 general usability improvements, for instance, much faster switching between detailed project information and planning views. For Onepoint this is only the start, since the new technology provides many additional possibilities that will be further explored over the next couple of update releases.
The major release also provides one radical new feature: visual resource planning. The new "Resources" planning tool combines Onepoint's popular resource utilization chart with an interactive, simplified schedule showing both, the project's planned allocation and the resource utilization across all other projects, in a single view. The user can simply drag & drop individual tasks to move them within the time scale or to reassign them to another resource. The resulting resource utilization situation is visualized instantly. Early tests have proved that using the resource planning tool, resource leveling and conflict resolution can be sped up by factors, thus, saving valuable time for project and line managers alike.
