New enhancements boost portfolio scheduling speed and scalability for complex work environments
Seattle—April 27, 2017—LiquidPlanner today announced the general availability of Scheduler 3.0, delivering automated timelines for multiple, long-range, complex projects in seconds. This update to LiquidPlanner’s patented scheduling engine dramatically reduces recalculation times to provide LiquidPlanner customers with powerful forecasting capabilities even faster.
Large organizations often struggle to understand what their teams are working on and when projects will be completed. This lack of visibility then leads to inefficiencies, delays, blown budgets, and missed deadlines. Decision makers need to quickly determine if project timelines are aligned with organizational priorities and make adjustments to assignments, dependencies, and deadlines on the fly based on real-time data.
LiquidPlanner’s scheduling engine accurately calculates project completion dates so that business leaders can instantly see the impact of their decisions on the bottom line. Scheduler 3.0 makes this possible for even the largest, most complicated portfolios. LiquidPlanner customers running enterprise-scale initiatives with more complex workflows are seeing a dramatic 75% improvement in recalculation times, with an average of five seconds for a full portfolio recalculation. For the average LiquidPlanner instance, new schedule dates will populate between 0.4 and two seconds, twice as fast as before the update.
“We know that our scheduling engine provides immense value for our customers, and we’ve invested in scaling and performance in order to meet the needs of their growing businesses,” said Liz Pearce, CEO of LiquidPlanner. “Our customers rely on the scheduling engine to provide immediate timeline updates as their resources and priorities shift. With Scheduler 3.0, they can now see how even the smallest change will affect their entire portfolio in as fast as half a second.”
