It’s not always easy to justify the deployment of new software; you need to weigh-up:
  • Your requirements (What’s the business need?)
  • The sales spiel of preferred vendors (Will it deliver what they claim?)
  • Business and IT Strategy (Does it fit?)
  • Business priorities and potential Return on Investment (ROI) (Is it good value?)
  • How future-proof is the application (Will it be around in 5-10 years’ time?)

ROI Calculation example :

20 staff earning £25,000 p.a. + (33% other employment costs) = Monthly bill £55,416

Investment Gain: Just 10% productivity efficiency gain = £5,541 monthly
Investment Cost: 20 x £19.97 = £399 monthly

100 x (5,541 – 399) ÷ 399 = ROI 1288%

** Higher levels of gain are achievable when Coral Plan is used as a tool for change e.g. introduced as part of a continuous improvement programme.

Put the fun back into planning. The planning and defining of projects and processes is not the problem, it’s keeping track of where you are at any one point that is.

Coral Plan can help any size business organise, from the smallest to complex, matrix management organisations.


You use multiple ‘systems’ to manage your processes and projects, spreadsheets, documents, project tools, CRM, other desktop tools.

Problem is they don’t join up to give you a clear picture of your resources or what’s going on at the coal-face!

BPO - Off-shoring your business processes and wondering how you are going to maintain visibility?


Coral Plan centralises all these business activities into one place, the interaction between them is clear for all to see.

Top 5 Project Managers problems solved!
Issue Solution
Missing Deadlines Warnings, alerts and late reports are integral to Coral Plan and are triggered by the smallest variation to the plan. You should never miss another deadline.
Resource Gaps Holidays and other staff absences run alongside project tasks, so there is absolute clarity of gaps or clashes.
Task tracking and signoff Coral Plan gives back control to the PM. Team member’s sign-off time against their own allotted tasks in a simple dashboard. They are accountable for responding to your published plan. Your job is to manage by exception.
Keeping plan up to date We’ve all been there, you frantically rush around updating the plan to have a stakeholders meeting. After the meeting you go back to ‘managing’ the project, the plan grows older by the day. Coral Plan dashboards and reports give a dynamic and true reflection of the plan at any one time.
Thinking time Because team members update Coral Plan every minute of the day you can manage by exception and concentrate on overseeing a successful project, rather than chasing people with your clipboard.
