Hephaistos is a project management tool designed for small and medium sized companies. It is a powerful application focused on the team work. It links together two different worlds: one is the project planning, second is the monitoring of the work done on the project.
The project manager can plan the tasks and each project member can see changes. The project member can add his or her activity (work done) to any task of the project and everyone can see how the project is viable in given time and with given project members. And top management can see at any time without any project reports the state of each project.
One of the main advantages is organization of the projects and tasks. Hephaistos offers not just a simple list of the tasks. The tasks are organized in the tree hierarchy with the dependencies between. This keeps relations between tasks and you can orient yourself in the projects easier.
Application has clear and easy-to-use user interface, with very simple installation and autoupdate built-in facility. Requires Java 1.5+.
This product has an attractive price: it is free for small teams (up to 8 users).
