Staff and inventory in the right place at the right time. Resource planning that is aligned with your company's capacity. Capacity planning that keeps an eye on resource consumption and project utilisation. All in one central tool - Vanillaplan.

Successfully coordinating various construction projects including their staff and inventory - often with project delays due to dependencies on preceding trades, material shortages or bad weather - can become a real challenge. Especially in view of the conditions in the construction industry, however, it is important to be able to rely on goal-oriented planning of personnel and inventory. And not only not to accept any losses at this point, but to effectively increase productivity.

From construction for construction: The central tool for your planning

We know the construction industry and we know the challenges that arise in daily work. That's why we develop software that is easy and intuitive to use, based on state-of-the-art technology and offers solutions to these issues.

Our cloud-based software solution cleverly combines deployment and capacity planning: You can easily schedule the deployments of your employees for all project phases from planning to production, execution and service, adapted to the company's workload. Different colours, icons and images make Vanillaplan intuitive to use - and you can get started right away without long training.

With Vanillaplan, you get your employees and your inventory to the right place at the right time:

  • Save time: Shift planning in just a few clicks thanks to the intuitive drag & drop function.

  • Reduce effort: With our practical team feature, which allows you to combine staff and inventory into fixed teams.

  • Simplify communication: Your staff can view schedules from anywhere using the mobile app and digital scoreboard.

  • One tool for every business: Individual mapping of your business across all sizes and trades

  • One tool for all phases: An end-to-end solution for all project phases from planning to production, execution and service.

To make your resource planning even more efficient, it can be linked to your capacity planning. In this way, you can keep an eye on your capacity utilisation at all times and counteract under- or overstaffing on the construction site:

  • Reliable control: Continuous resource consumption of all projects

  • Targeted insight: Individual filtering of the workload of departments or teams

  • Quick overview: Red-green diagrams to show your operational utilisation

Reduce planning effort, gain planning reliability and make idle time and incorrect planning on the construction site the exception - with Vanillaplan.
