Comments: This is a truly viable solution to a problem of the collaboration on an exhaustive documents with multiple users. Prior to iPlanner's Strategy Designer we were using Microsoft Office, Dropbox, Google Drive for creating our strategic Business plans. Everything had seemed somewhat disconnected. Working with a multitude of users always ends up with multiple documents created. Some extra attention has to be applied when piecing together all the created work, and things start to slow down or even cause various confusions. Although, the documents could be tracked via Microsoft Office's document tracking function, the human factor still had played its role occasionally. All in all, the process was onerous. When we introduced iPlanner's Strategy Designer into our Business plan making process we improved our efficiency significantly. With iPlanner's Strategy Designer it has now become possible to manage and share all the documents from a single cloud based service. It's a straightforward service, limited to strategic business plan creation only which is a huge advantage for such corporate environments like ours. The ability to upload all the work files straight into the Business plan is our favourite feature. This is one of the best investment we have made so far.
Comments: The iPlanner.NET Strategy designer provides a detailed and versatile setup for collaborative planning among many different team members in an organization. Cloud based collaboration such as this is particularly useful in that it eliminates the necessity for additional IT hardware. The cross platform availability is particularly useful when different team members are using different hardware to access the Strategy Planner.
Price wise it¿s very reasonable for both small businesses and larger corporate enterprises.
One downside is the lack of an offline version. Users who wish to work on a particular plan while in an environment that lacks connectivity will have to wait. The ability to work in an offline mode and then integrate back into the online mode would be useful.
From a security standpoint, more detail about how the data is stored in the Cloud and how that data is protected would be useful in a cyber security audit situation.
One definite upside is the multiple output tools, where the final document can be exported to Microsoft Word, HTML, or as a PDF file. This ensures that the final document can be viewed by as many people as possible.
In all, I would definitely recommend this product for a variety of different management teams. I believe they would find it extremely useful.
Mark Many thanks for reviewing our cloud-based strategic plan creation tool. We will analyze all of your valuable suggestions, especially the remark about adding more details on cloud security. Also, be informed that we plan to add special strategic plan templates for non-profit organizations. Will keep you posted when the first outline is ready.
The ability to collaborate on an exhaustive document with multiple users is especially useful in a larger corporate environment. When many people try to work collaboratively on single or multiple documents that might make up a business plan, different versions typically float back and forth via email, dropbox, or on multiple corporate servers. Having a single Cloud based service provide access to a shared document like this makes things much simpler.
Many times users find themselves working in an offline environment, whether they’re traveling on a bus or train or airplane, they can effectively be cut off digitally. Also in those environments, where’s it’s growing increasingly likely to have some form of mobile connectivity available, having a consistent internet connection with basic bandwidth can be difficult. This application requires a constant internet connection, and an offline mode is unavailable. Having that functionality would be beneficial.
Try it with multiple users that are not in the same office. Have people try it from home or while working with a remote office location. That way you can see how useful this could be.
Collaborative document management can be a challenge for any organization. While Microsoft Office has a document tracking function, it’s often insufficient when working with a multitude of users. Dropbox also makes it easier in some respects, but the case of multiple users ending up with multiple documents remains. Also not all of the features that this product offers are available via Dropbox. By combining Office’s extended functionality with Dropbox style sharing , this has the potential to be the best of both worlds.
A great package to define your strategy and convert them into actions. A very simple to use yet robust planning software. Supports multicurrency and is very useful for financial planning especially for startups and small businesses. You can upload their own Excel sheets that will be converted to online worksheets as well as expressed in the final plan document.
Limited customization and flexibility, Needs to be online to function.
Strongly recommended for planning people and decision makers. A must have for every business organization.
Financial Planning, Template driven modules, Research Projects planning and implementation, Analyze data for informed decision making.
Comments: As a Coordinator of the research cell of the Institute, one of my key responsibilities was to build the annual plans and flowcharts to carry out the research and development activities in the department. A very hectic task, though. Meanwhile, I came across iPlanner.NET by NetEkspert and life became easy.
Though it's a simple program, iPlanner.NET includes templates and tools needed to create a variety of business plans, including ones for start-ups as well as growth and marketing plans.
With iPlanner.NET, you can import financial information from other accounting programs. It also has step-by-step tutorials for each section of the business plan and financial calculators and chart generators to help make financial analysis easy.
I also encourage my students to use this tool for their project works.
Thank You! iPlanner.net
Vishal, Thank you for reviewing our business plan creation software. For your information, we are planning to add special plan templates for non-profit organizations. We will keep you posted when a template for non-profit strategic plans will be ready.
I find this convenient to draw my plans for my clients in no time as I know what I need from them to complete their business plans. Being an interactive tool, it allows participants to quickly update their information and also check information of other functionaries in the organization. That way transparency is assured among the participants and communication is faster and better. Since all formats (Word/XL/PDF) are accepted sharing of data becomes simple with texting and uploading features.
Requires online connectivity to work on the template.
Basic knowledge of English is essential.
Small businesses may find it a luxury.
I prepare business plans for various clients in various industries. This helps me to gather information faster and finish my work sooner making my clients happy. Client is also happy since nothing is left out in the planning process.
Comments: As a freelance Business Consultant, I really find iPlanner.net useful to help my business clients draw out their annual plans. Clients' Finance Heads now don¿t sit over many meetings with functional peers to get a plan into shape. With this online app all stakeholders contribute their share sitting at their desks and also check easily what others contribute to the business. Helps transparency, quick communication and editing, better understanding of concepts and more realistic. Also found it very user friendly allowing all formats, texting and uploading features.
I just suggest my clients to order a basic version and guide them to prepare their own strategic plan.
It would be better if we could work offline also downloading the template, as to be online always is difficult especially when you travel a lot. Local language support is missing as all dialogues are in English only, though plans can be drafted in any language. Few small businesses may find even the basic version costly but my recommendations are generally respected.
Has made my work simpler and life easier!
Bala, many thanks for a great review. We are glad to hear that the Strategy Designer app has made the creation of strategic business plans for your Corporate Team easier. To address your concern: Yes, it works on-line only. However, you can still work off-line by preparing various kind of stuff (such as Excel worksheets, presentations etc) to be uploaded when you are re-connected to the Cloud. Yours, iPlanner.NET Strategy Designer Team
