The Omni Group Releases OmniPlan 1.0 Public Beta
July 26, 2006
The Omni Group has announced the public beta release of their much-anticipated new project management application, OmniPlan. OmniPlan joins a well-respected collection of software offerings from The Omni Group, which include OmniOutliner, OmniGraffle, and OmniWeb.
OmniPlan is a program designed to help you create logical, manageable project planning documents. With OmniPlan you can break down tasks, optimize the resources needed for your project (people, materials, or equipment), control various costs, and monitor your entire project at a glance. Every project is made up of a collection of different activities; OmniPlan provides features like Gantt charts, schedules, summaries, milestones, and critical path highlighting to help you manage all those activities.
OmniPlan offers a streamlined, intuitive interface for both basic planning options and more in-depth functionality. From customizable views to fast data entry, OmniPlan helps you manage complex projects without requiring you to learn a complex software program.
OmniPlan features include easy task entry, in-depth resource management, a scheduling system for tasks and resources, visual timelines (Gantt charts), violation notification, critical path highlighting, and a number of import and export options, including the ability to round-trip with Microsoft Project.

OmniPlan is currently available as a public beta. The final release of OmniPlan will retail for $149.95; educational and family pricing will be available.
