Complete list of features
Take a look at some of the features that make Asta Powerproject a scheduler’s favorite:
Easily exchange data from other software systems
Asta Powerproject enables you to open files from other software systems and save Asta Powerproject files into formats that can be opened in such systems so you can easily exchange data with people working on different software if you need to. We provide ‘templates’ that can be used when opening files from other formats, so as to give the user a more familiar presentation of their project data.
Quickly create and update precise project schedules
You simply complete a short dialogue box with basic project details. You can then draw on the bar chart to create your plan. With some other systems, the amount of set-up that needs to be done before you can start creating your plan is significant and can cause unnecessary delay
Produce high quality standard and custom reports
With Asta Powerproject’s presentation tools you can easily produce high quality professional looking output to impress clients and senior management. Keep decision makers updated with clear reports on the latest information, including mobile access to dashboard reports.
Reduce costs with flexible licensing and deployment options
Asta Powerproject is available not only as a named licence option but also with a concurrent option which is a cost-effective way of letting more users have access to the software by sharing licences and bringing down the overall cost of purchase considerably. The software can be installed on any number of machines which all point to a central machine on your company network where the Asta licence server is installed. The licence server counts how many people are using the software and ensures that this number does not exceed the licenced quantity at any one time.
Enter task updates directly with laptop or mobile device
Asta Powerproject has flexible progress methods so date and progress data can be entered correctly against tasks in order to correctly calculate task end dates and, by implication, project end dates. The Actual Start and Finish dates are entered against completed activities representing when the work took place. In-progress activities have the Actual Start, Remaining Duration and % Complete entered.
Show, analyze and compare progress against unlimited baseline plans
You can show current progress against the project baseline in a very graphical way making it clear which tasks are not going according to plan and the impact on revised completion dates. This helps communicate progress quickly and effectively to other members of the project team to enable proactive actions to be taken where needed
Easily manage resources, costs and third-party participants
With multiple graphs and histograms – of people requirements, materials or finances you can make edits to the plan and immediately see the impact. You can see the project schedule and resource histograms on the same view and print on one page, giving you better visibility and improved decision-making than software which can’t do this.
Integrate with MS Outlook, accounting, BIM and ERP systems
Asta Powerproject integrates easily with other systems, including BIM models so you can visualise how the building will look at any point during its construction. You can visually compare the impact of different building strategies and sequences of events; and improve communication with all project stakeholders.
Enterprise application for multi-user, real-time collaboration
Keeping track of a portfolio of multiple projects and resources can very quickly become problematic and extremely time consuming when done in silos. With Asta Powerproject’s Enterprise application you can centrally manage all your projects and programes with optimum efficiency. Asta Powerproject Enterprise is a proven, powerful multi-user application for managing your portfolio, giving you complete visibility over multiple projects, programes and resources in real-time. It enables multiple users to access and work on the same project plan at the same time.
