As an upgrade to its predecessor product, PerpetualBudget, MyDeptPlan© is field-proven, having been in continuous use for over five years in the Fortune 500 business environment. The term "department resource planning" (DRP) has been coined by SBA to describe products designed for the department manager.
Notable advantages to MyDeptPlan© are its Excel-friendly behavior and integration with enterprise resource planning software (ERP). It simplifies importing and exporting any type of data to the user, featuring a drag-and-drop compatibility with Excel spreadsheets to easily import data from any ERP system.
Because departments run on projects, MyDeptPlan© is project-oriented, tracking project expenditures from the time resources are committed through the end of the project. Project managers know at all times where they are against the plan (budget) before they make additional commitments. Another benefit of MyDeptPlan© is the ease with which users can re-structure the plan during the year to reflect changes in the business cycle. Any of the plan objects can be dragged and dropped to a new location, maintaining all their sub-hierarchical relationships.
In addition to functioning as a "shadow" purchase order system, MyDeptPlan© can serve as the detailed release process for line item data against single large orders placed through the ERP system. This saves time and money, insuring all commitments are tracked.
MyDeptPlan© runs on the Windows desktop and has an optional web interface to sync plan data online. Team members can view their project status and export variance reports to desktop spreadsheets.
