After my tenth similar project, I sought to create a general solution that would help me to manage all projects - development and tasks - with a simple overview.Although commercial software solutions are available, many of these are not affordable by the individual/entrepreneur due to the high cost of licensing. Even the bigger businesses must reckon with a growing number of employees causing accordingly higher license expenses per client. Furthermore, most commercial solutions involve the use of additional, usually expensive, business-systems and data bases.
Although free software solutions are available, these have their own disadvantages. For example, they may have complex configuration and installation or inadequate design in the program-logic and the user interface. Other programs, such as Groupware solutions, have very mature technologies for contact-data, dates, tasks, notes and so on. Although these are useful as personal information management (PIM) tools, their value for project administration is either rudimentary or nonexistent.
These considerations led me to develop an individual solution for project-management and to make this available as "free software".
The present program has originated from several years of my own practical experience, developed for my current business with project management. However the future of phpEasyProject is dependent on your help and support, where we can share advice and tips for the good for all
