Sometimes, it is easier to create a simple Gantt Chart using Microsoft Excel with thoughts that you will create it for yourself. Because only you who understand the plan, you think that you will have time to explain about the plan to your team. But, when you have to meet some clients and have to propose a plan which could bring you big amount of money, will you create a simple Gantt Chart? I don’t think so. You will start to create a more professional and nice looking Gantt Chart and it will cost you time to learn excel more deeper. You are starting to look over the internet to find some tutorials or samples. But, there will be a deadline that you should meet to present your plan… and there will be a decision to make whether you will focus on the plan or the outlook of your Gantt Chart.
If you think that creating a professional Gantt Chart will distract your plan focus, you will start to think of buying some softwares to accelerate your planning process. You can buy Microsoft Project Software that is designed to help you creating your plan, but if your aim is to create a Gantt Chart, probably that software will be too expensive to you.
That is one reason why this Excelindo Gantt Chart Template is created. It only focus on creating Gantt Chart plan.. with such features that will help you manage your available resources easily.
You can start to compare this Gantt Chart with other Excel Gantt Chart available in the market. If you are comparing with other templates without Macro function, you will find that this software is much more better and much more cheaper.. And the point is, it will really help you creating a professional plan.
I mention about Macro function, what’s wrong with it? There is nothing wrong with Macro function, but honestly, with Macro, I can create more sophisticated Gantt Chart template, but you probably will find some incompatibility problem with your Microsoft Windows or Excel softwares… And there is no urgency to use macro, if you only want to make a Gantt Chart.
To summarize it, I would say that Excelindo Gantt Chart template is a better Gantt Chart template created in excel to help any project managers and team to create consistent project plans based on available people and time resources. With plenty of options on personalizing its layout and its flexibility on choosing workdays as well as its smart formula on calculating custom workdays, this software will reduce your time and save your expenses. Several examples of project plans that can be created using this template are construction, consulting, marketing development, renovation, product development, event etc. It is a very good alternative tool to Microsoft Project and other excel Gantt Chart template which is offered in more expensive price with limited function. This version is worked with Microsoft Excel 2007 and 2010 and it is created without macro which reduce incompatibility issues between Microsoft Windows/Macintosh and Office version.
