THE CHALLENGE

Markus Kohl from Valmet said that they used to struggle with tools like Excel, Microsoft Projects and ERP software that just didn’t reach their level. The former being too basic and not a proper resource planning tool. And the latter being too complicated, and not web-based. They needed software that would be easy to use, and always available. Even on the go, through a mobile app.

THE SOLUTION

Although they don't remember the exact moment that they found Ganttic, they still knew that using the software was easy from the start. Markus even dared to say that no one needed any special training. And there was no need to go through any tutorials.

THE RESULT

There is now a much clearer understanding of how all the resources are divided across projects. Ganttic is the perfect tool between spreadsheets and complicated ERP tools. It's simple and yet offers plenty of useful features.
