Application Screen Shots

Basic Concepts:
Every installation of ProjectPier has one owner. This is usually a company, but it can be a single person as well (eg. a freelance web designer). If it is a company, you can add employees of this company as users to ProjectPier. Users of the owner company are either administrators or standard users; depending on the context we refer to them as members.

The owner company has one or more client companies. Of course you can add employees of the client companies as ProjectPier users as well. Employees of a client company are always standard users (they canít get administrator privileges). If you happen to have partners or subcontractors you will treat them as client companies in ProjectPier.

Users have a profile (containing their contact information), a login (user name and password) and an avatar (picture). All this information is stored in the userís account. Users also have detailed permissions regarding what they are allowed to do in a specific project. Speaking of roles, there are only three of them, as mentioned above: 1. owner company employee with administration privileges 2. owner company employee 3. client company employee.
