Description of Project Gemma
Gemma is a project and task management web application software at its core. It is designed to help small to
medium sized professional service providers, consultancies and designers to organise their projects and tasks and
keep track of their payment and workload. Gemma keeps a registry of client businesses, persons in that business,
quotes, projects, invoices and operators of the business.
Since Gemma records payments it can also be used to show the income of the business. By adding a place
to record the expenses, Gemma can be used as a simple accounting solution without the unnecessary complicated
functionality of full scale accounting software. Since it remembers all the times and interactions of the project
Gemma can provide information about the business in form of well formatted business intelligence presentations and charts.
When Gemma has learned enough about the business it starts acting on her own and takes care of client interactions,
invoice follow up, welcome emails etc. It monitors the performance and health of the business and either acts by itself
to fix problems or brings the issue to the attention of business owner. In general, when the software is at its mature
stages, Gemma will act as a very well informed and disciplined employee who truly cares about the well being
and health of the business it serves.
