LivePlan is a web-based application, like Facebook or Gmail. That means it works differently than CD-based software that you install on a particular computer. Here are some notable differences:
Access from any computer
All of the software’s files, including the business plans you create, are stored on our secure servers. You do not need to install or save any LivePlan files on your computer. You can simply log into the secure website from any computer, anywhere in the world, and access and update your LivePlan companies.
Note: You can, however, download a copy of your plans to your computer at any time while you have an active account.
LivePlan’s online platform also allows our development team to update the software anytime without requiring you to install — or pay separately for — an upgrade. We typically update the app with new features and improvements once a month. You benefit from these improvements as soon as they are added to LivePlan, without any effort on your part. Keep in mind that our development priorities are driven largely by feedback by customers like you. Got a feature idea? Please contact us and let us know what you're thinking.
LivePlan makes it easy to collaborate with others. You can invite team members and advisors to either work with you on your company content (in a "contributor" role) or to review and comment as you go (using our free "guest pass" access). Contributors can even work on the same company at the same time you are, as long as you're not both editing the same section.
