Iron Triangle of project management lies in the core of Easy Project. Project Scope is managed through WBS, Schedules are done in Gantt and Resources are managed through Resource Master Plan. Project Performance can be assessed in Earned Value S-curves, Risk in RBS and daily work in Kanban boards. Easy Project further has modules for Help Desk, Finances and CRM. DevOps and Business Intelligence are coming soon.

Easy Project is designed for project managers, portfolio managers, c-level managers, business owners and freelancers to easily manage projects & teams, using the best PM practices with support from PM professionals, community and with on-going project management education.
The following are the minimum requirements for a smooth operation of Easy Project with 25 concurrent users.
Processor: Intel Xeon E5420 Harpertown 2.5 GHz
Memory: 4 GB
Disc space: 10 GB (2 GB for database files + 8 GB for shared documents, up to each customer)
Network card required
Easy Project works on UNIX and Linux platforms (we recommend Debian distribution).
- Ruby version 2 (currently 2.1.x) (https://www.ruby-lang.org)
- Bundler (http://bundler.io)
- Database server - MySQL or PostgreSQL
Easy Project does NOT run on Microsoft SQL Server.
It is also possible to provide a complete virtual machine - VMWare, so you don't need to worry about this configuration at all.
- Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/)
- Chrome (http://www.google.com/chrome)
- Opera (http://www.opera.com)
- Safari (https://www.apple.com/safari/)
- Internet Explorer - TWO LATEST VERSIONS! As of 11th April 2014, IE 10 and IE 11. Older versions may have issues with some views, buttons or CSS.
Other browsers were not tested extensively, but they are likely to work just as well as the above mentioned ones.
Connection from the user to the server where Easy Project is located must be at least 10 Mbit. You need to take into account the whole route from the user to the server, so with geographically distant locations, the response of the server may take a longer time, regardless of the user's declared internet connection from their provider. The bandwidth of the server is also a factor.
A user in Easy Project is generally understood as an active user account, which means someone who can log in using a password. Accounts that are locked are not considered to be active users.
If you don't have the authentication set as required; Easy Project is open to anonymous visitors without login - they are not considered as users.
Example: A team that uses Easy Project has 20 people. The system provides limited access to 50 clients who can submit tasks without having to login. For this use, the license for 25 users is sufficient.
However, if the clients have user accounts, with which they log in, you would need a license for 100 users.
