Release 6.5 – Reaching the goal with the right plan

22. June 2020

2020 has so far shown that not everything can be planned. Even the level of taxes cannot be relied upon. Nevertheless, a good planning remains the best way to reach set goals. Therefore, projectfacts 6.5 brings you various innovations from 25.06.2020, where plan and goal are the focus.

Our highlights

Capacity Management

The capacity planning of projectfacts has been extensively revised to support you even better in achieving your company goals. How you proceed methodically to make the best out of your resources you can find out here.

Target values

In many activities it is difficult to make visible progress. With the new target value of pf 6.5 you give your employees the opportunity to evaluate their own performance more easily.
More information and instructions on how to activate the target value in the system and assign it to your employees can be found here.

Design your interface even more individually

Your holiday trip has been cancelled, you would like to have your loved ones with you or you just want a bit of nature at work? With the new version of projectfacts you can now create your most beautiful picture as background.
