AXtension® Visual Planning is a powerful Microsoft Dynamics add-on that helps Project Managers accurately manage more projects in less time and allows for maximized use of available resources. The result is more accurate project delivering, measureable results in a timely, cost-effective manner.
Overloaded Project Managers struggle to manage several projects as their organization grows and spreadsheets, paper based systems and planning boards are no longer sufficient. Companies utilizing extensive project planning with scarce resources need simple, functional, fully integrated tools that help them manage their projects more effectively. These organizations need a tool that provides insight into planning tasks, resources and materials, task by task and across several projects. Moreover, Project Managers need to balance resource usage and project duration to comply with project objectives. A planner simply needs to identify conflicts, capacity and item requirement issues as early as possible. When a plan is modified he requires immediate visual results and alerts.

•Enables project managers to create a Work Breakdown Structure and plan the activities effectively.
