Deltek Systems has released Deltek Project Planner for project-specific planning, budgeting and forecasting in project- oriented organisations. Deltek Project Planner also integrates with Deltek Corporate Planner and with Deltek Costpoint, combining versatile macro-level and project specific planning and forecasting with feature-rich back office automation for dynamically planning an entire project business. These planning applications are powered by Adaytum Software's proprietary calculation engine under a strategic technology alliance with Deltek announced last year. Deltek Project Planner clients provide project services across several vertical industries, including government contracting, research and development, engineering and design, as well as software development and testing, and systems integration. By replacing traditionally cumbersome, home-grown spreadsheets with simple and customisable templates, Deltek Project Planner makes it easier for project managers to create and modify project budgets and do forecasts of employees, hours and costs. Accurate forecasting is achieved by giving project managers the combination of hours and cost already spent with ability to staff their projects and forecast hours and costs through project completion.
To help companies meet the challenges of maximising billable time, the package combines forecasts from all project plans into a series of consolidated staffing reports by employee or generic labour categories. These reports give management the data essential for reviewing and adjusting employee utilisation across a department, an office or an entire company. Adaytum provides Internet-based enterprise business planning software that allows organisations to plan, track, analyse, and forecast key business activities in a proactive and collaborative manner.
